"Kundalini Yoga is the science to unite the finite with Infinity, and it's the art to experience Infinity in the finite." - Yogi Bhajan, 10/27/88
Kundalini is awareness. It means you get that you are a finite individual thing with infinite potential identity. Kundalini yoga is a technology to awaken your awareness. As you practice Kundalini yoga, you grow. You shed old behaviors, attitudes and habits, gaining new perspectives, capacities and habits that support your own continued evolution.
"Kundalini yoga is a science which works on the seven chakras, the arcline and the aura (the eighth chakra). It works directly on the total energy, and that flow of energy has one simple way; either you sway it or it sways you. Either you are above the energy and ride it , or you go below the energy and it rides you. That is where Kundalini yoga fits in; you will learn to ride your energy, to experience it and penetrate any given situation to attain balance. What is Kundalini actually? It is your creative potential. You experience it when the energy of the glandular system combines with the energy of the nervous system to create such a sensitivity that the totality of the brain receives signals and integrates them. Then you become totally and wholly aware, and your creative potential becomes available to you."
