With this new edition The Power of Chakras , we hope to reach an even wider audience with the message of wisdom and healing contained in its pages. My own stunning introduction to the human energy field and its elusive kundalini energy occurred at age A flower child of the hippie generation, I was attending art college in Oakland, California. The winter of late was a time of immense discovery.

I awoke to Oriental wisdom through Buddhist and Hindu scriptures, readily available in Telegraph Avenue bookstores near the University of California. I consumed as many books about Eastern philosophy as I could lay my hands on. I wanted desperately to attain the state of consciousness I was reading about: nirvana. I learned that nirvana , or its Zen Buddhist equivalent, satori , meant the end of suffering: spiritual enlightenment, freedom from the wheel of birth and death —the cycles of reincarnation. Something within me knew this was the only goal worth pursuing.

Since I read that nirvana could be found by practicing meditation, my heart yearned to learn how. Alan Watts emphasized the importance of a meditation guide. But, needless to say, in , no yoga or meditation schools could be found in the yellow pages of the telephone directory. At that time I lived with some other art students in one of those charming Berkeley, California redwood-shingled beamed-ceiling houses. One afternoon I asked a roommate whether he knew how I could find a meditation guide. He replied, Have you ever tried to meditate by yourself? So I thought I would give it a try.

I entered my bedroom and lay on my back.

Because I was clueless about what I was doing, I prayed for an experience of meditation. Without warning, I was suddenly propelled into an ecstatic state! My body felt as if it were plugged into an electric socket. A huge rush of energy bolted from the tips of my toes to the top of my head. I was connected to a powerful cord of energy that continuously pumped through my body like a rocket. Because I never had experienced anything remotely similar, I figured this must be meditation.

Little did I know, this was not only my first meditation experience, but also my kundalini awakening—all at the same time. This atomic explosion of energy was both ecstatic and bewildering. After my initial meditation, it was not long before I found myself on the banks of the Ganges River in the Himalayan foothills in Rishikesh, India, studying with a spiritual master. I ended up living in his ashrams spiritual communities for 22 years in the Himalayas, Swiss Alps, and secluded areas of the United States.

I was on his personal staff under his close tutelage for seven of those years. However, I met Maharishi and started TM before they discovered him. In , I received the unheard-of blessing of staying with Maharishi in his ashram in Rishikesh for six months, and remained with him and only five other disciples for two of those months. Sometimes I went into my room and did not appear for eight weeks at a time. I observed silence and did not speak to anyone for up to four months at a time. I sometimes fasted for two months at a time, and I observed celibacy for decades. Samadhi, a Sanskrit word derived from the roots sama evenness and dhi deepest part of the intellect , means profound stillness of body along with mental quietude—transcendental consciousness.

This experience of samadhi is the goal of Yoga philosophy—what seekers of enlightenment strive to attain. This experience of sat-chit-ananda absolute-consciousness-bliss is readily available to anyone.

In fact, in this book you will learn a simple meditation to help you attain this higher state of awareness. Another component of living with a spiritual master is the mysterious experience called shaktipat. This blissful transference of energy occurs when enlightened masters put their attention on a disciple.

In such cases the guru acts as an energy field for the student in the transmission of kundalini energy. Maharishi rarely spoke of kundalini experiences, which he pigeonholed as release of stress. In other words, the phenomena associated with kundalini, or rushing sensations up the spine, are more precisely defined as blockages to the free flow of kundalini energy. If the channel were clear, there would be no sensations—only the experience of unbounded awareness and bliss consciousness.

Spiritual masters overflowing with vital energy have the power to transmit this energy in order to heal and uplift people, even bring them to higher consciousness. The mysterious force known as prana is key to the secret of divine transmission from guru teacher to chela student. Many people think disciples who clamor after gurus are desperate and weak, brainwashed by these cult leaders. In some cases, this is true. Yet one component of being near a spiritual master is often overlooked: the profound transference of energy that occurs in the presence of a true saint. When I was studying with Maharishi, I lived for this experience.

We called it darshan sight —the blessing of being in the presence of an enlightened master. I tried everything in my power to get near Maharishi as often as possible.

For whenever he put his attention on me, I was propelled into a state of sheer delight and ecstasy. What did kundalini transference feel like? For me, the world stopped. Time and space disappeared. There was nothing but a wave of love on an ocean of bliss.

This energy shot directly from his eyes like a bullet of bliss that blasted into my aura energy field. Rushes of intense power and love throbbed through my body, electrifying and energizing it. Catapulted into an altered state of consciousness, my mind became expanded, joyous, and free. My body felt ecstatic. My spirit lifted into unbounded awareness. My heart opened. I was filled with light. Nothing existed but the now-ness of now in the eternity of the present.

My I-ness dissolved into a sea of love and devotion. Throughout the decades, other spiritual masters have graced me with similar experiences of kundalini transference. A spiritual healer, he transfers kundalini energy by chanting mantras and then blowing on the person.

It is also the potent energy within your body understood to be responsible for sexual orgasm. Because of this, much misinformation has been perpetrated in the name of kundalini. The chakra system, consisting of energy centers within your subtle body, is widely explored today through myriad books, seminars, and gurus. Sincere individuals seeking kundalini experiences are led into practices that may or may not produce genuine spiritual evolution. Many authentic practices yield spectacular results in a short time. Others are erroneous and ineffectual. Methods undertaken sincerely and seriously, with proper training, can lead to spiritual awakening.

Others, attempted haphazardly and carelessly, can cause confusion, harm, or worse, serious physical or mental illness. After taking a weekend seminar, some misguided people print a business card, put up a shingle, and declare themselves the next "master," "yogi," "sanya-sin," "swami," "shaman," or "chakra healer. Some so-called self-declared experts are sincere, yet deluded. Sadly, much confusion is left in their wake. For this reason, investigating chakras in a reliable, systematic way is vital. Gaining deep understanding about your subtle bodies, energy field, and energy system is essential.

Learning beneficial spiritual practices that will not harm your body or confuse your mind is necessary. By learning from ancient sources that have stood the test of time, you can be assured of deeper comprehension and better experiences. By delving into scriptures of antiquity that have, until recently, been locked in secret hiding places in forests and caves of India, you can uncover new, unexplored, and unrevealed wisdom.
