In the beginning, to receive self-realization we do these steps. This helps us to awaken our kundalini energy and to open our chakras, so that
we receive our self-realization. Once kundalini is awakened within us, we don’t have to do it.
But for any reason if our attention becomes weak, we may need to follow these steps, that way we would start feeling the energy flowing in hands
once again, giving a better meditation experience.
