Mantra is a unique form of therapy which involves repeating a short phrase again and again with the aim of invoking certain qualities like peace, light or joy. These phrases are chanted out aloud or internally to ones inner self, and are normally associated with Buddhist figures whose qualities are cultivated by the reverberation of the relevant mantra. The phrase ‘Mantra’, has its origins in Sanskrit where ‘man’ stands for mind and ‘tra’ stands for instrument, the word ‘tra’ can also refer to an English name ‘free’. ( I personally see the ‘Man’ being taken from manana which means to think deeply and the ‘tra’ from Trana meaning deliverance – Mantrik )
Thus mantras are techniques that can help people free their mind from thoughts that may be disturbing them or upsetting their balance.

Kundalini stems from yogic philosophy which is an indwelling spiritual energy that when awakened will purify the subtle body and ultimately bestow the state of Yoga. In Hindu Mythology, this energy appears in the form of a snake that lies coiled at the base of our spine, hence the name Kundalini which is Sanskrit for “coiled”. It is referred to as the Sacred Fire or Coiled Serpent, which is represented as a goddess or sleeping serpent and is a dormant force waiting to be awakened. Kundalini Yoga is a style of Yoga that aims to awaken this energy and send the snake moving up your spine all the way to your brain, to reside with the Sahasrara Chakra, resulting to infinite bliss and sublime happiness. Kundalini – Awakening the Snake causes awareness and spiritual enlightenment.
Kundalini Yoga was introduced by Yogi Bhajan to the West in 1969. This includes Yoga poses or deep meditation which are spiritual practices that can awaken the Kundalini. To understand the movement of Kundalini better, you must familiarize yourself and have adequate knowledge of the nervous system, the spinal cord in particular because the Seven Chakras are believed to be found here.
