昆达里尼瑜伽:是有益还是危险呢?
发布日期:2016-10-24 21:39

Sadhguru speaks about what kundalini is, and looks at the process of Kundalini Yoga. He explores how this powerful spiritual process should be approached with utmost responsibility and reverence.

 

在这篇文章中,萨古鲁解释了何为昆达里尼以及昆达里尼瑜伽修习法,并阐述了人们应该如何以最强的责任感和最深的敬意来对待这个强大的灵性练习。

Sadhguru: In the yogic culture, the snake is a symbolism for kundalini – the unmanifest energy within you. The nature of kundalini is such that when it is still, you do not even know it exists. Only when it moves, you realize there is so much power within you. Till it moves it is almost non-existent. Because of this, kundalini is symbolized as a snake because a coiled-up snake is so hard to see unless it moves. Similarly, you do not see this coiled-up energy unless it moves. If your kundalini is aroused, miraculous things that you cannot believe possible will happen with you. An unleashing of a completely new level of energy begins and your body and everything behaves in a completely different way.

 

萨古鲁:在瑜伽文化中,蛇象征着昆达里尼——你内在未开启的能量。昆达里尼的本质就是如此:在它静止时,你甚至无法察觉到它的存在。只有在它流动时,你才会觉察到自己的内在蕴含如此强大的能量。这种能量若不流动,就几乎如同不存在。正因如此,人们用蛇象征昆达里尼。你无法发现一条盘蜷的蛇,直到它游动起来,同样的,你无法察觉到这股能量,直到它在你体内流动。如果你的昆达里尼被唤醒,你身上会发生奇迹般的难以置信的事情。随着这种全新层级的能量的释放,你的身体、你的一切都会进入一个全然不同的世界。

 

 
Heightened states of energy are also heightened states of perception. The whole yogic system is aimed only towards enhancing your perception. A spiritual process essentially means just that – to enhance your perception because you know only what you perceive. This is the reason for the symbolism of Shiva and a snake. It indicates that his energies have reached the peak. His energies have reached the top of his head and so his third eye has opened.

 

能量的提升也意味着感知力的提升。整个瑜伽体系的唯一目的就在于提高感知力。灵修在本质上意味着提升你的感知力,因为人们只能了悟自己所感知的事物。这也是为什么湿婆(Shiva) 有蛇作为象征,暗示他的能量已经到达顶峰。他的能量已经到头顶,于是第三眼打开了。

 

The third eye does not mean someone’s forehead has cracked and something came out. It simply means another dimension of perception has opened up. The two eyes can see only that which is physical. If I just cover them with my hand, they cannot look beyond that. That is how limited they are. If the third eye has opened, it means another dimension of perception which is inward looking, which looks at life completely differently, has opened up and everything that can be perceived is perceived.

 

第三眼不是说一个人的前额裂开了缝,有什么东西从里面冒出来。它只是意味着你开启了感知的新维度。人们的两只肉眼只能看到物质维度的事物。如果我用手遮住一个人的眼睛,那他就什么也看不到了。肉眼就是如此局限。你如果打开了第三眼,就意味着你向内看的感知维度已打开,你可以以全然不同的方式看待生命,你会感知到一切可感知的事物。

 

Nowadays, a lot of books and yoga studios talk about Kundalini Yoga and its benefits, though they don’t know anything about it. Even to utter the word “kundalini” we always bring a sense of reverence and then utter the word because it is so enormous. If you have to activate the kundalini, the necessary preparation in your body, mind and emotion should happen, because if you pump energy into a system which is not ready for that kind of voltage or volume, things will fuse out. So many people have come to me who have lost their mental balance and physical capabilities because they tried to do Kundalini Yoga without the necessary guidance and assistance. If the necessary supportive atmosphere is not there, simply attempting to raise kundalini could be very irresponsible and dangerous.

 

如今,很多书和瑜伽馆都在谈论昆达里尼瑜伽以及修习它的好处,尽管他们对昆达里尼一无所知。我们甚至只是念及“昆达里尼”这四个字,都要带着崇敬之心,因为它是如此强大。你如果一定要练习昆达里尼,必须做好身体、头脑和情绪三方面的准备。就如同给一个系统通入电能,这个系统却没有准备好接收电压如此强或流量如此大的电,那么就会熔断保险丝。许多人在没有接受必要的指导和帮助的情况下,试图去练习昆达里尼,于是就有很多精神紊乱或身体失调的人过来找我。如果缺乏必要的利于练习昆达里尼的氛围,却试图去唤醒它,这是十分不负责任和危险的行为。

 

Kundalini Yoga in its essence is the most dangerous form of yoga. I am saying dangerous because it is the most potent also. What is most potent is always the most dangerous if improperly handled. For example, there are various kinds of ways in which electricity is being produced. One of the ways we do it is through nuclear reactors. It is the most efficient way of producing energy that we know right now but it is also the most dangerous way, isn’t it? When things are going right, it is the easiest and best way to produce energy on the planet. When things go wrong, they go seriously wrong in ways that you can’t fix it. Similarly with Kundalini Yoga, it is the most potent and it is the most dangerous. Without the necessary preparation, without constant, expert guidance and observation, no one should ever attempt it. But the problem is books have been written about it and everybody wants to do the highest yoga. Nobody wants to start with “A”, everybody wants to start the alphabet with “Z”. This attitude itself is dangerous.

 

昆达里尼瑜伽本质上是最危险的一种瑜伽。我说它最危险,因为它也是最强大的。强大的东西,如果不妥当处理,往往是最危险的东西。举例来说,有各种各样产生电能的方式,其中一种就是利用核反应堆发电。这是我们目前所知的最高效的发电方式,但也是最危险的方式,不是吗?如果不出问题,这是在地球上最简单也是最好的产生电能的方式。一旦出意外,事情就会变得如此严重以至于人们无法解决。昆达里尼就像这样,它是最强大也是最危险的。如果没有做好必要的准备,没有接受持续的指导和进行专业的学习,那么,任何人都绝不应该试图尝试它。但是,问题在于很多书里总提到昆达里尼,人们就会想要去做这种最高级的瑜伽。没有人想从字母表基础的“A”开始,人人都想从最后的“Z”开始。这种态度本身就是危险的。

 

In classical yogic traditions, there is a certain type of yoga we teach for people who live in family situations. There is a certain other type of yoga we teach for ascetics. We never teach those in family situations the ascetic form. That is the most potent way to do it but it will demand a certain dimension of discipline and focus, which your regular lives will not allow. If you do that kind of yoga, it will dismantle your outside life instantly.

 

在古典瑜伽传统里,我们有专门传授给生活在家中的人的瑜伽,也有其他专门传授给修习苦行的人的瑜伽。我们决不会将苦行僧修习的瑜伽传授给生活在家中的人。苦行瑜伽是潜能最大的一种,但是要求你的自律性它需要训练强度和专注力都到达一定的维度,而这是你的在日常的生活不允许如此。你若修行这种瑜伽,会立刻让你的日常生活土崩瓦解。

 

This doesn’t mean there is something wrong with Kundalini Yoga. It is a very fantastic process but it needs to be done properly because energy has no discretion of its own. You can make your life out of it or you can burn your life out of it. Electricity is making our life. But if you stick your little finger into it, you know what will happen! Energy has no discretion. How you use it is how it is. Kundalini is also like that. You are using it right now but in a minimal way. If you maximize it you can raise beyond your limitations of existence.
 

这不是说昆达里尼有什么不对的地方。昆达里尼的修习是很棒的,但是你要以正确的方式修习,因为能量自身是没有辨别力秩序的。你可以利用它成就你的生命,也可能因为它毁掉你的生命。电改变了人类的生活,但是你也知道的,如果你把小拇指伸到插头里会发生什么!能量自身是没有辨别力秩序的,你怎样用它,它就会成为怎样。昆达里尼也是这样的,其实你现在也在运用它,不过是以最小程度。你如果最大化地运用它,就可以唤醒超越你的存在限制的能量。

 

All yoga in one way is towards that but Kundalini Yoga is particularly towards that. In fact, all life is towards that. In some way, people want to experience life more intensely than they are experiencing it right now. Someone wants to sing, someone else wants to dance, someone wants to drink alcohol, someone else wants to pray – why are they doing all this? They want to experience life more intensely. Everyone is trying to raise their kundalini but they are doing it haphazardly. When you approach it scientifically with a proper method, we say it is yoga.

 

所有的瑜伽某种程度上都是为了在某种程度上都会超越限制,但是昆达里尼瑜伽尤其如此是专注于超越限制的瑜伽。事实上,所有的生命都是要在超越限制。在某种程度上,每个人都人们想要体验比起现在更加强烈刺激地去的体验生活。有的人唱歌,有的人跳舞,有的人喝酒,有的人祷告——他们为什么在做这些事呢?因为他们想要更强烈地感受生活。每个人都在试图唤醒体内的昆达里尼,然而却是以盲目的、混乱随意的方式。如果你以人们以合理适的方式去科学地完成昆达里尼的唤醒,则称之为瑜伽。
