Why is the kundalini energy referred to as 'she'?
One of our facebook friends asked this question and received the following replies - do you have anything to add?
Sangeet: Because its Shakti and Shakti is feminine
Maria: In Spanish it would have to do with semantics." La energía kundarini" it´s a "she" word. But I think that if it´s so in other languages ... shall it be because it has to do with "mother" "earth" ?
Greig: Sangeet is correct She refers to Shakti who moves up through susuma nadi to Agna chakra to re-unite with Siva
Nitin: Yes,it is because of shakti(mother of universe) wife of shiva.
Shoumava: shakti is female
Archana: females r more active,nagin is active than nag kundalini is supposed to be a snake
In Indian tradition, the active principle is always feminine. Shakti is dynamic and creates the the world; Siva is passive and watches, i.e. He is consciousness
