Yoga is an ancient discipline originating from India that focuses on the union of the mind, body, and spirit. An important part of yoga philosophy is the conscious use of sexual energy, which is called “kundalini”. However, in recent decades, the approach to yoga in the West has undergone a significant change that has led to the elimination of this concept.
The hypocrisy that has eliminated the concept of conscious use of sexual energy from traditional yoga philosophy can be explained in several ways. Firstly, many yoga teachers in the West have focused exclusively on the physical aspect of practice, neglecting spiritual and philosophical aspects. This superficial approach to yoga has led to the removal of concepts such as kundalini and the practice of conscious use of sexual energy.
Secondly, there has been a growing commercialization of yoga in the West. Many people practice yoga for aesthetic purposes, such as losing weight or increasing flexibility, and yoga teachers try to meet this demand. This has led to a reduction in the complexity of yoga practice and the removal of elements such as kundalini.
Thirdly, there has been widespread hypocrisy regarding sexual energy in the West. While Western culture promotes sexual energy as an important element of life, it is also repressed and demonized. This has led to a lack of understanding of sexual energy and its removal from yoga practice.
Additionally, kundalini is a very complex concept that requires a deep understanding of yoga philosophy. Yoga teachers in the West often do not have the necessary knowledge and experience to teach kundalini effectively, and as a result, this concept is ignored or eliminated.
