Dharmalankar Swamiji Radhikananda Saraswati believes that "aatma" the divine mother kundalini is the eleventh avatar. Just as the "Turiya State" is called the 4th state because it follows the first three state Jagruti, Swapna, Sushupti but yet is not the fourth state because it is the supporter of these three states. Similarly Mother Kundalini is the eleventh avtar after Dashaavtar but yet is the very support of the dashaavtar.
Swamiji says that it with the support of this divine mother Kundalini that God has attain their godliness while saints and sages explaining the mythological depiction of Bramha, Vishnu, Mahesh, Swamiji says that the serpent around lord Shiva's neck symbolises the journey of mother Kundalini. It signifies that with the help of kundalini yoga, man can have a better understanding of the divinity within himself. Lord Vishnu resting on the serpent "Shesh" represents the state of perfected man. Lord Bramha, symbolises the ultimate state of knowledge which is reached when the divine mother kundalini reaches the "Sahastrar" fully bloomed It is the yogic swaroop of man.
Dnyandev called mother kundalini the seventh kala Those who performed yogasans achieve levitation with the help of 16 joints (Kalas) in the body. but with the help of this seventh kala man can elevate his entire living. The divine mother Kundalini within us guides us through her various energy present in "Pran".
Now a man in order to live a happy as successful life in today's distorted and chaotic world should be introduced to Kundalini yoga and it's science. In coming millennium Swamiji says it would be most rightful to promote every aspect of Kundalini yoga to the entire humanity.

INTRODUCTION TO DNYANESHWARI
Dnyaneshwari is an extensive commentary on "Bhagwad Geeta' and is written by "Sant Dnyanadeva" of "Alandi", near' Pune. There are 9000 couplets in Marathi and they are referred to as "Ovi". Today Dnyanadev's philosophy is a main atraction all over the world, especially to those who are interested in "Kundalini Yoga", metaphysical aspect, Guru Bhakti Yoga and so on. But original text being in Marathi, for non-Marathi speaking people, Dnyaneshwari was out of reach. Keeping this in mind, I tried to undertake this great task of translating 9000 Ovi into 9000 English couplets. Ofcourse which is possible only by the very grace of my Gurudev "Mahayogi Umartanda Sarawasti" and with kind permission of "Shree Dnyanadeva". Today due to their blessings, the entire volume is being presented which has Eighteen chapters of Dnyaneshwari with 9000 couple...
18 key sentences to 18 chapters of Geeta; these are underlined for readers benefit. For me, these 18 sentences are like a formula, to be used when I face any dilemma of Do or Not-To-Do, regarding any action in life.
Hope readers to find this useful to apply in their day-to-day life.Contact to know more
