Kuṇḍalinī Sādhana: A Pathway to Liberation


A new Heart of Conscousness program is being offered by Swami Khecaranatha beginning in April of 2018 and continuing throughout the year.  It consists of a series of immersions and Monday evenings focused on the various means of discovering one's true nature as Śiva. Khecaranatha will give in-depth teachings on the significant aspects of nondual practices that emphasize gaining liberation through kuṇḍalinī meditation and śakti transmission—and this discussion will focus on the "Matrix" of how consciousness unfolds in light of the Upayas, traditionally understood as "The Means of Liberation." You can think of the matrix as the warp and weft of the fabric of sādhana, the fabric of the journey to liberation.

The term “Heart of Consciousness” describes that pure, undivided Supreme Consciousness that is at once our innermost selves as well as our source, and that we discover and access through our own individual heart and our own consciousness. Sādhana is the expansion of heart, the expansion of our individual consciousness, leading to the direct recognition that we are simply that Pure Consciousness. Kuṇḍalinī Sādhana describes the practices that we do in order to have that recognition—to first feel our heart, to merge with God’s heart, and then to live as God’s heart.

In this pdf of the Matrix you’ll see that the aspects or categories of the matrix on the left side correlate with what are called the upāyas, the means, across the right. Āṇavopāya is the path of effort, śāktopāya is the path of energy, and śāmbhavopāya is the path of awareness. Based on almost fifty years of practice and teaching, Swami Khecaranatha has translated the upayas into a simple formula: āṇavopāya = opening your heart; śāktopāya = surrendering to the śakti, the energy that’s created you and that sustains you; śāmbhavopāya = residing in the Heart of Consciousness.
