"The great Goddess (Kundalini) sleeps closing with her mouth the entrance to the way (the Sushumna) by which the seat of Brahman (Brahmarandhra), where there is no pain, is to be reached. The Kundalini-shakti, who sleeps above the kanda, (Muladhara) gives liberation to Yogin's… He who knows her knows Yoga. The Kundalini is described as being coiled like a serpent. He who causes the Shakti to move (from the Muladhara upwards) becomes free, without doubt."

Hathayoga pradipika, 1893.
Chapter 3 V.106-108
