There is no "goal" as such. It is a way to calm the mind and settle the body so that you can go deeper and deeper in your meditation and simran. It gives you a calm, centered state of mind that allows you to penetrate to the essence meaning of Gurbani intuitively. It also balances and strengthens the body's systems for health; especially the nervous system. When the nervous system is strong, you can go through any pressure in life and remain steady. It is easy to remain graceful when things are smooth. The real test of your life is to remain graceful and effective under every UNgraceful circumstance. Kundalini yoga gives you that. Kundalini Yoga is ideal for today's society since it is designed for the active, everyday person with normal responsibilities of work, family and school. Kundalini Yoga can be practiced by anyone if it is done gradually and according to the instructions.

As our society becomes increasingly more dependent on technology, our world becomes more intimately connected and influenced by its numerous cultures. The pace of change is on the rise and the stress on our body's nervous system is increasing. Practicing Kundalini Yoga allows us to cope with this escalating demand. The inner science of the mind is the tool that will enable us to cope with the pressure of these changes. It is the mind that interprets our outer and inner worlds and it is the mind that we must train to guide us through the flow of change. Kundalini Yoga is called the Yoga of Awareness. Awareness is a finite relationship with infinity. We all have dormant energy sleeping within us, waiting to be awoken. Kundalini Yoga gives you the experience of being truly you.

Unfortunately, with the pressure of today's hectic schedules, many of us have forgotten who we are and why we are here. There is only so much wisdom you can get out of a book, but wisdom cannot sustain you. Wisdom only becomes knowledge once you have experienced it. Kundalini Yoga will give you the experience that we are "spiritual beings having a human experience not humans beings trying to have a spiritual experience" and then you can experience the infinite joy, health, and happiness, which is our birthright. The only way to really understand Kundalini Yoga is to do it. Then you have the experience of it. Don't take my word for it. Experience it yourself.
