Kundalini yoga is a type of yoga which has its original source from Tantra tradition of India. The word ‘kundalini’ is a Sanskrit word which has a meaning “coiled like a snake.” The tantric scriptures say, the Universe is in the form of “shakti” or energy. This is the feminine energy which we call ‘kundalini” existing both inside and outside our body in the form of a goddess or divine form. This divine energy can be regarded as the inner manifestation of the supreme divine mother inside the human body. It is otherwise known as ‘serpent power’. Which exists in everyone’s body usually in a dormant and inactive state. The muladhara chakra existing at the base of the spine of the metaphysical system of body is the abode of goddess kundalini. Rarely human beings come across and experience about this dormant divine energy and very few of them get inspired to activate this. Though medical science has not yet recognized this hidden energy of our body, literature of Tantra and yoga explain elaborately regarding the existence, ways of awakening, results and hazards in the path of wrong practice of arousal of this dormant divine energy. Ancient hatha yogic texts like Hathayoga pradipika, Gheranda samhita  and Siva samhita deal extensively about kundalini practice.
