The vital energy running through this coil is known as Kundalini. The great thinkers are divided about the very characteristics of the Kundalini. Some says that it is psycho energy. Others claim that it is spiritual. We may take it as psycho-spiritual power.

Activation of seven successive Chakras would make a yogi wiser and more settled in self. It is the purest form of spiritual journey.
Awakening of Kundalini: The awakening of this latent energy would make us experiencing the infiniteness of universe.

While learning about it, a disciple comes to know about many secrets of human body.
