A Treatise on Cosmic Fire - Section One - Division D - Kundalini and the Spine

Very briefly, owing to the impossibility of revealing much on this necessarily dangerous subject, we will consider the subject of kundalini and the spine.

We must remember here that we are dealing with the etheric counterpart of the spine, and not with the bony structure which we call the spine or spinal column. This is a fact not sufficiently recognized by those who treat of the matter. Too much emphasis has been laid on the three spinal channels that compose the threefold spinal cord.

These channels are important in connection with the [135] nervous system of the man, but in relation to the matter in hand, they are not primarily so important as the etheric channel, which is the unit enclosing these three. Therefore, we must strictly remember that we are dealing with

  1. The etheric channel
  2. The fire that passes up the channel,
  3. The conjunction of this fire with the radiatory energizing fire of the physical body at the point between the shoulder blades,
  4. Their united ascension into the head,
  5. Their blending eventually with the manasic fire which energizes the three head centers.

I. Kundalini and the three Triangles

The fire energizing the triangle in the head is the higher correspondence to the triangle of prana, midway in the body, and its lower reflection at the base of the spine. We have, therefore, in the human unit three important triangles:

  1. In the head: The triangle of the three major centers,
    1. The pineal gland,
    2. The pituitary body,
    3. The alta major center.
  2. In the body: The triangle of prana,
    1. Between the shoulders,
    2. Above the diaphragm,
    3. The spleen.
  3. At the base of the spine: The three lower centers,
    1. A point at the bottom of the spinal column.
    2. and c. The two major sex organs in the male and female. 62 [136]

60 "Kundalini, the serpent power or mystic fire; it is called the serpentine or annular power on account of its spiral-like working or progress in the body of the ascetic developing the power in himself. It is an electric fiery occult, or fohatic power, the great pristine force which underlies all organic and inorganic matter."
- H. P. Blavatsky.

61 "Kundalini is the static form of the creative energy in bodies which are the source of all energies including Prana...

"This word comes from the adjective Kundalin, or "coiled." She is spoken of as "coiled" because she is sleeping, lies coiled; and because the nature of her power is spiraline...

"In other words, this Kundalini shakti is that which, when it moves to manifest itself, appears as the Universe. To say that it is "coiled" is to say that it is at rest - that is, in the form of static potential energy...

"Kundalini shakti in individual bodies is power at rest, or the static center round which every form of existence, as moving power, revolves."
- The Serpent Power, by Arthur Avalon.

62 It is not my intention to lay any stress on the sex side of this subject, for these are organs with which the occultist has nothing to do. I will not therefore enumerate them in detail. I would only point out that in the transference of the fire at the base of the spine and the turning of its attention to the two higher triangles comes the redemption of man.
