śakticālani-mudrā (‘pose of the body that helps in activating the Kuṇḍalini’) Śakti is the Kuṇḍalinī power, the basic and total energy of every human being, imagined to be like a coiled serpent, lying at the root of the spinal column. The yogic exercise that helps this power to be roused and move towards the sahasrāra-cakra in the head is called ‘śakticālanī-mudrā’. Some of the steps involved in its practice are: sitting with a loin cloth only, smearing the body with holy ash (vibhuti), siddhāsana posture, special prāṇāyāma techniques as in¬structed by the guru and so on. Being a complicated exercise, it has to be practised directly under the guidance of an expert teacher of yoga. See also CAKRAS.
