Animated Video of Kundalini Energy

‘Kundalini' literally means coiling, like a snake. In the classical literature of Hatha Yoga Kundalini is described as a coiled serpent at the base of the spine. The image of coiling conveys the sense of untapped potential energy - a great reservoir of creative energy at the base of the spine.Kundalini energy can be considered as the foundation of our consciousness and when Kundalini moves through our bodies our consciousness necessarily changes with it.

Yajna is a fire ritual and this one was called Aswamedh Yagya (horse sacrifice). Don’t worry no horses were sacrificed. The religious group which is conducting the yajna says it will heal many diseases and will also help in slowing the ozone depletion. But the yajna which ended on Sunday was criticized by many environmentalists who say the thick smoke will only cause further damages.
