Light/Jyothi is Grace. Grace is not limited to a belief system, tradition, religion or spiritual path. The Sun shines on everyone and everything with equal disregard for belief in separation.
The Christ is not limited to a belief system, tradition, religion or spiritual path. The Christ is the Divine Blueprint of Perfection and the Sacred Heart of Divinity. The Christ is an emanation of the Ray of Compassion.
Kundalini is known by many names : Grace, Light, Jothy, Holy Spirit, Shekinah, Sophia, Kali and Mary. She is the Shakty, goddess within that illuminates the path to sacred union.
As the Flame descends through Grace, or holy baptism or shaktipat, it snakes through the body and it purifies the self. Until the Self has mastered the fear of the self, the Flame may be experienced and perceived as an enemy of the self. The self will defend against its own dissolution. Therefore, it is necessary and required that the initiate undertakes a sadhana (spiritual practice) that will reveal the nature of the Self, both dark and light. Self-knowledge is the key.
'Through self-knowledge you have come to understand that your greatest obstacles become your best allies. You will use all of that which you struggled with, as tools to carry the message of the Grace Light.' Swami Ramalinga
