Kundalini Yoga Universe part 3: the word God

Kundalini Yoga Western Australia - Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Welcome to the third instalment of the Kundalini Yoga Universe blog.

This time we tackle the word God.

God is a word that is used in Kundalini Yoga teachings. Yogi Bhajan, master of this tradition, used it a lot. It even appears in some kriyas (exercise sets) and meditations, as a mantra.

It is a word that elicits all sorts of reactions in people in our culture, in Australia. Some have their own relationship to it and are comfortable or even positive about it, while others don't really care, while some others feel some mild suspicion all the way up to strong aversion.

It's not surprising, given the history of organised religion around the world. It might even be enough to scare some people off Kundalini Yoga altogether.

What is meant by the word God in Kundalini Yoga, which is most definitely not a religion, but a technology and also a spiritual path?

The God that is meant is not the Christian, man with flowing white beard in the sky, God. (Although maybe also that God – nothing wrong with that.) It is referring rather to the universal intelligence that animates all life. It's the vibrating, creating, sustaining and dissolving force that is so difficult to talk about and yet which humans have tried to describe and name since time immemorial – just to relate to it. In Kundalini Yoga we vibrate it. We vibrate the name – or the Naam. Our aim is to vibrate Sat Naam – our TRUE identity, which is …... God!

So God in this practice is not a God outside of you – controlling, judging, accepting or rejecting you. No. It is INSIDE you. And all around you. And in all others. In the mineral, vegetable, animal, human and angelic realms. And in all the spaces between. And in all the realms we know nothing about. Through all dimensions and through all time: that is God. In short, there is nowhere that it is not.

It is also genderless. He she it. But manifests in all genders.

People call it many names. We have the One, the Divine, Sat Naam. Wahe Guru. Sat Narayan Wahe Guru. Adi Shakti. Har. Ram. Ma. And so many more. In no conflict with Jehovah, Allah, Great Spirit, Divine Mother etc etc etc. 

The Hindu holy trinity of G – generate (Brahma). O – organise or sustain (Vishnu). D – deliver or destroy (Shiva).

Many appearances and aspects of the one thing. Many metaphors in order to appear to our senses, to enter the realm of the play of life, light takes on colour and 3D form. And so humans relate to this colourless, formless essence or primary intelligence by clothing it and naming it.

Why? Why not just forget about it and not talk about it, since the word God is so loaded, misused and controversial for people in this culture? We could just skip those bits surely?

Well, because people long to relate to and talk to and about this greater-than-us that has no name and so many names. We need to relate to it to put ourselves into perspective and know who we really are - our true identity. We long to know that we belong to and are in fact a manifestation of this greater. To God. That we are all connected in this whole vast web and that it IS intelligent. Life has a point and meaning. We long to be happy and healthy – glowing and vital and on purpose. And along the way we realise that there's a third element to this healthy and happy and that's holy. Wholly whole means holy. And a part of the whole big whole. When you live as though you were connected with the whole you begin to vibrate with the whole. Yogi Bhajan's 5th Sutra for the Aquarian Age – vibrate the cosmos and the cosmos will clear the path. And so, by chanting names of the One whole intelligence, whatever they may be, we vibrate with the whole cosmos. Our lives become filled with this vibration and we know the vitality that comes from a connection to the universal power source.

This may have drifted too far out into the cosmos for some!

But next time you're in class or you are watching a video or whatever the context may be and the word God pops up, perhaps by having considered how you might dismantle previous beliefs and assumptions attached to that word, you will be ready to approach it and let it approach you afresh. No need to throw the baby out with the bath water. And ultimately, who decides what or who God is for you, is you.

Awesome blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little
lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused
.. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long)
so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing.
Do you have any helpful hints for beginner blog writers?
I'd certainly appreciate it.
