Kundalini and Mystical Traditions

The mystical traditions of most faiths have been focused on direct experience of the divine, rather than on dogma and ritual. Hence they have much more in common with each other than do the faiths from which they come.

The accounts of the experiences of such mystics have many features in common. These experiences include perception of a divine being or higher power, bliss or ecstasy, perception of light (both inner and outer), inspired poetry or revelation, unshakable faith, and lack of fear of death.
