Azusa Street Revival: The Gateway of the Kundalini Spirit Into The Church
- Published on: Tuesday, July 5, 2022
- The Azusa Street Revival was a historic series of revival meetings that took place in Los Angeles, California. It was led by William J. Seymour, an African-American preacher. The revival began on April 9, 1906, and continued until roughly 1915.
On the night of April 9, 1906, Seymour and seven men were waiting on God on Bonnie Brae Street, "when suddenly, as though hit by a bolt of lightning, they were knocked from their chairs to the floor," and the other seven men began to speak in tongues and shout out loud praising God.
The Los Angeles Times gave this description: Meetings are held in a tumble-down shack on Azusa Street, and the devotees of the weird doctrine practice the most fanatical rites, preach the wildest theories and work themselves into a state of mad excitement in their peculiar zeal. Colored people and a sprinkling of whites compose the congregation, and night is made hideous in the neighborhood by the howlings of the worshippers, who spend hours swaying forth and back in a nerve racking attitude of prayer and supplication. They claim to have the "gift of tongues" and be able to understand the babel.
Kundalini is the term for “a spiritual energy or life force located at the base of the spine,” conceptualized as a coiled-up serpent. The practice of Kundalini yoga is supposed to arouse the sleeping Kundalini Shakti from its coiled base through the 6 chakras, and penetrate the 7th chakra, or crown. This energy is said to travel along the ida (left), pingala (right) and central, or sushumna nadi - the main channels of pranic energy in the body.
Pentecostalism began the invasion of the Kundalini arts from Hinduism and other eastern arts into the false Christian churches. Both of these practices produce participates who are shaking their heads; have uncontrollable jerking; begin barking like dogs; falling over backwards (need someone to catch them); running; demonstrate a spirit of “drunkenness”; experience uncontrollable laughter; make animal noises; this had never been seen in the churches except in a very small way; and it has very quickly traveled all over the world: From Rodney Browne’s uncontrollable laughing to Randy Clark’s Toronto blessing to Todd Bentley’s chaotic scene in Florida.
