Lesson 133 - Nectar (Audio)
AYP Plus Additions:
New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the archive, as previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why This Discussion?"
A: Your description sounds like nectar, called amrita or soma, coming down from the brain through the nasal pharynx. It is stimulated by spiritual practices, especially pranayama, kumbhaka and kechari, though it could come from any practices, sometimes even only with bhakti.
The biology of kundalini involves sexual essences going up the spine, and also through the digestive system and other channels. Then, in the brain, there is a process that brings the nectar down into the digestive system via the front passage mentioned, where it is reprocessed and sent up again. So, it is a circular process, up the middle and down the front, like that. This biology is the basis of rising inner experiences. It is part of human spiritual transformation. Advanced yoga practices are designed to promote this.
Nectar can be sweet with a fragrance like flowers. It is most noticed in early stages of kundalini awakening. Then later it is less noticeable. Don't get too fixated on it. Continue your practices, whatever they may be. The experience is part of the larger process, not an end in itself.
Good things are happening.
The guru is in you.
