Kundalini & Soma in the Rig Veda IX.71.3: “By the breaking apart, splitting of the plasma clouds…Going from the Firmament of Space all over…”



Rig Veda Book IX.71.3 / Kundalini in the Rig Veda

By the breaking apart, splitting of the vapor-clouds [plasma coming from the Mooladhara Chakra] as they are pressed out [through intense concentration TAPAS, the fire of TEJAS], growing vigorous, behaving as the powerful, flowing [Soma] into both sides of the [electro-magnetics of] the brain [the left & right ‘hand’].

Going from the Firmament of Space all over, [throughout the Nadis, the 350,000 subtle body nerves] by the vibrational acoustics, the waveform frequencies generated in the precise meters [the structures in rhythmic sound] in the verse lines of each hymn.

He [the Rishi who experiences] gets pleasure, joy and delight [from] the embrace that joins, [union similar to] as in copulation, and spreads [effuses all through the subtle and physical bodies] by the [acoustics/sound waves created] within the [meters of] the hymn, [as those acoustics] make perfect and accomplish the purification [of the Nadis] in the waters [APSU] surrounding the regions between heaven and earth, dwelling within the [Soma, the ‘milk of the universe’, semen seed] vapor-clouds [as they are flowing] around in circles and are worshiped.

This is only one verse from the 114 hymns in Book IX on SOMA of the Rig Veda. These verses are composed of words that have multiple layers of meanings, which are layered into what I call spherical non-linear meanings that were known, understood, obvious to the Seers, the Rishis who were actually experiencing Kundalini as they wrote. But the true meaning was lost over the 1000s of years as we descended through the Cycles of Time and most of us lost the capacity to invoke our own Kundalini, our God-given right and natural state. The Sanskrit words in the Rig Veda are not in traditional Sanskrit, but are in what is called Vedic Sanskrit that only appears in the Rig Veda, which is the first and primary text of all the ancient Sanskrit texts that followed.

Accessing the meaning of these verses is like arduously reaching back into time and with great effort pulling out something that has been intentionally hidden, covered, and protected from the ignorant, who would never understand the true meaning. It requires and demands intense concentration and subtle receptivity. In sincere humility because I have been blessed with my own Kundalini Awakening, I don’t feel that anyone who was not experiencing Kundalini could know what these verses mean. This explains why all the translations vary wildly as each scholar endeavored to translate from their own lens, their own limited vision based on the schools their ideas and thinking had been formed in, especially in western institutions.

Even the best most metaphysical and esoteric of the translations – by R.L. Kashyap – falls short as he does not go deep enough into the mechanics of Kundalini. He grasps the basic underlying principle of Soma as “Delight” – but does not attribute the rapture to Kundalini’s flowing movements, as it transforms the vaporous energies in the seven chakras into Soma, the ‘milk of the universe’, the divine semen seed, the ‘sprinkled’ plasma that circulates into the electrical system of the brain and throughout every cell into the DNA transforming us, purifying and cleansing our spirit body of all bondage, the ancient knots that have bound us in the temporal illusory holographic matrix.

An excellent example of the ongoing systemic confusion by sincere scholars, who I deeply respect and who I would be lost without, can be found in the word adribhih which is most often taken to mean ‘stones’.  The scholars thought of Soma as a green creeper plant that had to be crushed and pressed out — and so took the word ‘stones’ as the meaning to fit their preconceived ideas.  But adribhih also means ‘the splitting of clouds’ and these clouds are said to be shaped like mountains, which are geometric triangles (see Sri Yantra below); it can also mean the number seven which would relate to the seven chakras. Also they are very intimidated by the Sanskrit word YONI, which is really the female womb, vagina, and symbol of the Goddess energy that manifests the entire universe. Even Indian scholars most often translate YONI as “seat” which I find bewildering.

When contemplating the idea of acoustics that can be used to alter consciousness and purify, remember that plasma and sound can be interchangeable.

What is a wave?
A wave is defined as a disturbance propagating through a continuous medium, which thus gives rise to a periodic motion of the fluid [Space Physics/MB Kallenrode]. A wave is a disturbance of the medium with a certain speed, amplitude, and frequency. The parameters of the medium are pressure, density, and the electromagnetic field. An undisturbed medium is assumed to be homogenous in pressure, density, and magnetic field.

There is a similarity between plasma and sound. Plasma and sound can be interchangeable. Plasma is the most abundant material in the universe. A large variety of waves exist in plasma [Space Physics/MB Kallenrode].

Magnetohydrodynamic Waves: Magnetohydrodynamic waves are low-frequency waves related to the motion of the plasma’s ion component. They can be understood intuitively from the concepts of magnetic pressure and magnetic tension. In a magneto-sonic wave, compression of field lines creates a magnetic pressure pulse, which propagates perpendicular to the field in the same way an ordinary pressure pulse propagates through a gas in a sound wave.

…the maximum speed of a disturbance propagating along the magnetic field can be compared with the speed of sound in a gas.

Magneto-Sonic Waves: A magneto-sonic wave is similar to a sound wave: it is a longitudinal wave parallel to the magnetic field with alternating regions of compression and rarefaction (rarefied/lessening of density) in both the plasma and in the magnetic field.

Ion-Acoustic Waves: Sound waves are pressure waves. They transport momentum from one layer to the next due to collisions between molecules and atoms. Despite its often low-density, in a plasma a similar phenomenon exists.
