Dinosaurs and Kundalini


The great sauropod dinosaurs had a tiny head relative to its body, but it, like all dinosaurs except for the bird-like theropods, had a tiny brain relative to its head.  Indeed, the average sauropod had a brain the size of a kitten's.  Relative to its body this is the smallest brain to body-weight ratio of any vertebrate animal.  To co-ordinate the gigantic body a second "brain" was required, a ganglion of nerve fibres in the sacral or hip region that was thirty times the size of the head brain.  The famous ornithischian dinosaur Stegosaurus had a similiarly large ganglion.

Interestingly, the sacral region in man is said to be the location of the base chakra (Muladhara), which is the  seat of the latent kundalini-shakti energy.  Through certain practices the yogi is able to activate this consciousness-energy and make it rise to the brain, to unite with the complementary Shiva-consciousness located in the crown chakra (Sahasrara or "thousand-petalled lotus").

In man, and to a  lesser degree in mammals, birds, and bird-theropods, the greatest neural development is in the head, the "shiva"-pole, so to speak.  In dinosaurs, it is in the sacral region, the "shakti"- pole.  Just as we hominds manifest a high level of consciousness and awareness, which has caused our brains to evolve, so the dinosaur, with its huge sacral expansion and very high pranic level (indicated  by  the avian-type respiratory system) must have manifested an extremely high level of vital (kundalini-shakti) power.  It was only  the actualisation of this tremendous power that could have enabled it to evolve such a huge and powerful body.
