Re: Tailbone pain - locust pose/root chakra issue?
It may be better to discontinue those poses causing discomfort in that area.
If "kundalini" is the cause, then any doctor will also not be able to diagnose a physical issue.
On another thread "Sri Gayatri Mantra" for Meditation, a bias towards mantra meditation causing some imbalance is discussed where the symptom is headache.
Here is, IMHO, the other end of the spectrum where a probable bias towards tantric (Yogasanas, Pranayama etc) is causing imbalance resulting in pain in the root area.
1) Proper guidance - taking the full range of Yogic realm into account - isn't available at all despite mass popularisation of many small facets of related practices.
2) When these bits and pieces are sincerely followed by a practitioner, such "problems" are bound to occur, which are not only a logical culmination of practices adopted (and very much necessary imo), but also it comes to be even more critical to have info available on what next.
So, if the physical ailment (as in EM's concern in the previous post) is excluded, I certainly see more focus on mantra mediation as the way ahead. One clue is: are you able to move the "pain" to the next "chakra" during meditation in a normal, comfortable, yogic pose?
The mechanism is this:
When prANa is singularly concentrated in one part or zone, sensitivity is increased (resulting in uncontrolled signals, that may cause pain or other sensations). And the "ability" to do so is a good thing, I would even say a milestone achieved. But the prANa also needs to move through other chakras because otherwise the unctrolled energy confined in one zone/ frequency is certainly not a good thing. And as one can understand, a doctor would likely see such issues as primarily psychological.
Things to remember:
1. Life = yajña
2. Depth of Āstika knowledge is directly proportional
to the richness of Sanskrit it is written in
3. Āstika = Bhārata ("east") / Ārya ("west")
4. Varṇa = tripartite division of Vedic polity
5. r = c. x²
r = realisation
constant c = intelligence
variable x = bhakti
