Kundalini and the Judeo-Christian Tradition
There are many references to Kundalini in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible indicating that this concept is woven into both the Christian and Jewish traditions. These references are often veiled yet sometimes fairly obvious given the serpent symbolism of the Indian, Egyptian and native cultures.
Some of the more transparent ones include:
From the Old Testament:
- Now the serpent is more subtle than any beast [energy] of the field...Genesis (3:1)
- And the Lord spoke unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying “When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Show a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent." Exodus (7:8,9)
From the New Testament:
- Jesus answered and said unto him, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John (3:3)
- And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up... John (3:14)
- Moses was learned in all the wisdom of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and deeds. Acts (7:22)
