In all human beings there are 6 chakras—these are termed as SAT CHAKRAS. These SAT CHAKRAS have kept all beings bound. If you, by practicing Pranayam, make your mind free from support, meaning, remain in Formlessness, then, these chakras cannot imprison you anymore. Then you will understand, that the six chakras have been overcome. Formless means Shunyam, void, nothing at all. If you can remain in this supportless void, then there is no obstacle at all. The conscious company of the Inhalations and the Exhalations is known as the spiritual company, or, Satsang or company of the Truth.
If one can keep the conscious company of the Inhalations and Exhalations, one can abide in Shunya or Voidness, and only then egoism, worries, sins, virtues, desires, cravings, all will vanish and Self Realization only remains. Kundalini is the foundation and support. She is sleeping, dormant. She is engrossed in the gross physical awareness. She has to be disturbed and banished from her physical shelter. Only then she will approach Shunyam (Shivam) void for shelter and will be supportless and unite with Shivam.
