SATCHITANANDA is the living spirit-filled (spiritual) result of merging unlimited and subjective absolute beingness with objective absolute consciousness.
Here in SATCHITANANDA the nadis are completely open and the imbalances are balanced -- harmony and synergistic synchronicity allow the shakti prana (kundalini) to maintain and uphold the body/mind and breath and this permeates one's entire being and irrigates the consciousness.
In yoga, SATCHITANANDA is said to happen for short or longer moments associated with moments of spiritual insights, glimpses into the unknown, satori, revelations, realization, sabija samadhi, great beauty, transcendental experiences, moments of inspiration, and the raising of the kundalini.
