Hiroshi Motoyama to the scholars, scientists, and spiritual seekers of the English-speaking world. For those who are already acquainted with current investigations into yoga and the psychic and spiritual sciences, Dr. Motoyama will need no introduction. His preeminence and reputation as a scien- tist are well known, for he is foremost amongst researchers in this field at the present time. His pioneering discoveries during the last ten years have carried orthodox science to the threshold of the spiritual dimension, and will serve as a basis for future investigations into the greater potentials inherent within the framework of the human body-mind.
The prac- tices of yoga and tantra which will awaken those greater potentials will become the quest of scientists during this cen- tury. This present book - Theories of the Chakras: Bridge to Higher Consciousness - is an outstanding document from both the scientific and spiritual points of view. In the first place, it presents a unique and authentic record of the spiritual ex- periences of an adept in whom the kundalini has been awakened by yogic practices. And second, it is the unique record of the pioneering experiments conducted at the In- 7 8 stitute for Religious Psychology, Tokyo, which presents clear, electro-physiological evidence of the existence of the network of chakras and nadis which form the infra-structure of the subtle energies existing in the pranic and psychic dimensions, which underlie and activate the physical, material body of man.
If secrets of the universe are to be revealed, the spiritual dimension must first be breached and science must emerge from its present limitations of the material dimen- sion. In this respect, Dr. The awakenipg of kundalini is the most monu- mental experience an individual can undergo in life, which brings into operation another dimension of awareness. At the physical level, kundalini manifests as a higher voltage of energy conducted through the nervous system, resulting in a wider range of activity of the various systems of the physical body, and heightened awareness and capabilities.
The altered states of physiological functioning associated with awakening of each chakra are quite distinct from disease conditions, although they may produce a variety of physical and mental symptoms which may temporarily im- itate them. This fact must become clear to physicians, scien- tists, and healers.
Motoyama has himself experienced the awakening of kundalini and has presented an analytical record of that transition in the state of awareness. Further- more, he has devised laboratory equipment so as to demonstrate the psycho-physiological parameters of an awakened kundalini in experimental subjects, thus paving the way for scientists of the future.
The awakening of kundalini is an experience which ac- celerates an individual toward the conscious fulfillment of 9 his purpose and role in life. Through scientific means, Dr. Motoyama has clarified the knowledge and experience of kundalini so that others may be able to understand. His remarkable contribution elevates the status of kundalini from that of a religious or mystical myth into a psychological and electro-physiological event which can be demonstrated and recorded by scientific evaluation.
Scientists, and humanity as a whole, are indeed fortunate that he has under- taken such a formidable task. Due to the genius of an enlightened mystic of science, Dr. Albert Einstein, the world has entered the nuclear era. Einstein projected his awareness into the subjective realms in order to conduct his famous "thought experiments" on the nature of light, and as a result, the orthodox model of the universe was modified and revised. Yet today the same concepts of nuclear fission and fusion are grasped by children of ten or twelve years of age in their elementary science classes at school.
What better example can be cited as evidence of the evolving awareness or consciousness of man? Man now stands at the doorway of the spiritual dimension. Within the next few years many scientists will validate the theory of kundalini and the chakras. Just as Einstein unlocked the vision of the pranic dimension to reveal the energy underlying material creation, so too Dr. In- sight into the dimension of spiritual energy is now only a 10 step away from scientists who already can detect the activity of kundalini through their laboratory experiments and in- struments, due to Dr.
Entering the spiritual dimension The kundalini is awakening in man and it is imperative that the scientists recognize and record this transformation in the structure and function of the human nervous system. The awakening of the higher human faculties and capacities can no longer be denied or disregarded by scientific or- thodoxy.
Man is standing in the upper echelon of the evolu- tionary pyramid. Those at the pinnacle possess an array of "supernormal" mental and psychic capacities of which the average man has little or no comprehension. They are devoting themselves to hastening the evolution of humanity which is suffering from physical, mental, and psychic ills.
Our predecessors - animals - are simi- larly destined to rise up and assume an upright posture. Without that tremendous evolutionary step, man could never have become a cultivator or herdsman, he could have never mastered fire or language, and he would never have acquired color vision. A similar situation exists today, and we have to reconsider human evolution in this light. Even today, this conditioning continues to influence our ideas of what we are and the role we play in hastening our evolutionary destiny.
As a whole, mankind as yet remains virtually unaware of its evolutionary potentials and possibilities. Within each one of us there exists an animal, a human, and a divine being; these are the three dimensions of our ex- istence. Our present state is not the ultimate one; we stand at an intermediate stage or platform.
For centuries man has been living in one restricted frame of mind and because of this limitation evolution came virtually to a standstill. Only now are the Western cultures emerging from an extended period of darkness in which their men of vision and genius were executed or persecuted for heretical religious or political reasons, and in that climate of distrust, fear, and violence the spiritual knowledge was suppressed.
Now the veil is lifting and man is once again exploring the possibilities of expanding his consciousness. The climate is changing, and mankind has become more receptive to new ideas. Although at the present time we may not really know which way to go, as a whole, we are now definitely aware of something that is existing beyond the mind.
Although we may not know how to realize or develop that perception, yet we have reached the conclusion that this mind cannot be the ultimate vehicle of knowledge. One thing is clear - man has to make a transition. We are not the first, nor are we the last expression in the evolutionary process.
Perhaps we are stand- ing at the crossroads. Perhaps this human life cycle can be made to serve as a springboard for the leap out of the evolu- tionary cycle. Today there are great scholars, but their statements are limited by their finite minds. There are brilliant philosophers, but their philosophy is subject to the limitations of their minds. If man can jump over his mind, he will experience an ab- solutely new dimension of existence and his thinking about 12 creation, the purpose of life, and so on.
What appear to be true definitions today may be challenged in the future and fall in the light of newer discoveries.
What is the assurance that we know the truth today? How can we know that our present concepts of man and creation are correct? If our vi- sion is to be complete and truthful, we must have the re- quisite eyes - the eyes of intuition, of higher consciousness. There are faculties in man which he has not been able to ex- press as yet; yet, these potentials lie dormant in every person.
How can they be awakened? For an ignorant man, the mind is ultimate; but for a wise man, mind is a stage between and it is possible to transcend mind altogether and simultaneous- ly give forth the finest expression of his creative energy. Man can exist without a mind, provided he has discovered another mind behind this mind. Not only in this century, but for ages past man has been ex- ploring the possibilities of expanding the frontiers of his con- sciousness.
Not everyone is aware of the limitations of the personal mind, and there are millions of people even today who are not at all aware. Nevertheless, there have always been those who have tried to go beyond its confines. That process, that experience, has always been with man and is known in India as tantra. In order to understand tantra, the concept of mind has to be defined. In everyday life, mind has come to mean the means by which man thinks and feels.
Psychology has also similarly defined the mind. In tantra and yoga, however, mind means something quite different. Here, mind is termed as chitta which literally means awareness, and this term en- compasses awareness on all the different levels of existence. The objective awareness is one of these levels; subjective awareness is another; absence of awareness is another. Mind is not thought, emotion, or memory as is commonly believed. Individual mind is part of the universal mind, a part of what we know as total mind.
What is this total mind? It is composed of a type of proto-matter and has two opposite 13 poles known as time and space. Time and space are actually only categories of the mind. It is only in the orthodox or con- ventional way of thinking that time and space are considered to have a separate existence, different from the universal mind. Every form of matter has a nucleus, and so also has the mind.
On the material plane scientists have managed to liberate energy from the nucleus of matter by a process of fission. In the same way, yogis and spiritual adepts have been exploring ways similarly to liberate the energy from the nucleus of the mind and the material body. So long as time and space re- main separated, nothing can emerge from the universal mind, but when time and space come close to each other, then the universal mind becomes a creative force.
Although the individual mind is a part of the universal mind, never- theless it still preserves its own nucleus. When this is explod- ed the individual attains enlightenment. Tantra and yoga have been practiced in India for aeons, in order to explode this nucleus and directly experience the universal mind.
The re-emergence of tantra The subject matter of consciousness, its investigation and discovery, is known as tantra. It is a vast science in which every method of expanding the conscious experience has been explored. It has always been with man, ever since he began to probe the mysteries of his own existence. Tantra is not an Indian philosophy. There was a time when tantra was the spiritual practice of men and women of every continent. Evidence exists that prior to the Atlantean civilization, tan- tra was practiced in order to gain a greater vision and ex- perience of reality.
Tantra is the ancient spiritual heritage of mankind. Through accidents of history, civilization lost touch with the tantric tradition during the dark ages of the kali yuga.
Now the Western civilizations are emerging from several hundred years of darkness, when a climate of 14 distrust, fear, and hatred prevailed and during which tantra was suppressed. Now the religious and political climate is changing and tantra is re-emerging around the world.
Tantra has survived the tests of time and history because it is not a philosophy but a scientific system whereby man can improve the structure and quality of his body and mind, and through which he can transform his ailing personality. Although the system of tantra is most controversial and has been widely misrepresented, this great and sublime science has not been truly and accurately presented.
