Kundalini





An illustration in a Nepalese manuscript of what is known as the kundalini, which the Indians view as the powerful energy center in human beings located at the base of the backbone. To activate the Kundalini is only possible through the most advanced techniques of yoga, but when this happens, violent powers are liberated, rising through the psychic energy centers located on a line from the point of origian to the top of the head. This drawing measures 184 x 23 cm.
