Now to death..

Let’s start by thinking about how death happens. Firstly, let’s define Kramamukti or Samadhi as briefly as possible.

It is believed that the body has three main nerves and six adharas. (It is scientifically accepted that there are 72000 nerve cells in the human body and that the central nervous system consists of the brain and the spinal cord).

It is the central nervous system that provides the body with will power, wisdom and power of action. Nadi means channel,spinal nerves begin below the spine and ends in the brain. Indian philosophy says that there is a nadi called Ida surrounding the Spinal cord on the left side and a Nadi called Pingala on the right side.
Ida and Pingala are distributed around specific centers in the six parts of Spinal cord. Breathing also takes place through the ida and pingala nadis. Sometimes the breath comes out through the left nostril and sometimes through the right nostril. If we listen carefully, we will be able to comprehend this. Aadharas (Shadadharas) are the part where the Ida-Pingala nadis meet with the spinal cord, which conducts the movement of the prana.
It is also called Chakra (Shad Chakras) because that part turns out like a vortex due to energy. A great deal of research and study has been done on these chakras and adharas. I am not getting into that now.

But let me point out one more thing. The symbol of medicinal professions features two snakes winding around an often winged stick with head above and tail below, encircling six places. Let that be.

The lowest chakra is the Muladhara. Later Swadhisthanam, Manipurakam, Anagatam, vishuddi and Ajnachakra reach up to Sahasrapadma which is the brain. It is believed that if one awakens the dormant Kundalini Shakti or Jevaathma through sadhana and passes through each chakra step by step and reaches the Sahasrara Padma, one becomes a Mahayogi and gains various achievements. Such yogis voluntarily break through the brahmarandhra and bring out the jevaatma and take refuge in the Supreme Spirit. We often pray as “padiyaarum kadannavide chellumbol shivane kaanakam shivashambhoo ” This is what is called Mahasamadhi and Kramamukti.
