Further to my earlier question --What is the method for "Coupling of the Serenity and Insight Powers" referred to in the Path of Discrimination? -- a fresh question has surfaced based on the book Foundations of Tibetan Mysticism by Lama Govinda.
On page 133 of this book reference is made to "The Doctrine of Psychic Centres in Hinduism and Buddhism". As a Theravada Buddhist, the concept of psychic centres and kundalini shakthi was never alluded to, as I thought it was not a part of the Theravada doctrine. However, now, in the context of the earlier question referred to on the method for coupling of the serenity and insight powers, there seems to be a direct link between the Hindu and Buddhist Doctrines. The essential difference is that Hindu Psychic Centres (chakras) are static whilst the Buddhist ones are dynamic -- see page 134:
"The Buddhist system is less concerned with the static-objective side of the chakras, but rather with that which flows through them, with their dynamic functions i.e. the transformation of that current or nature-energies into spiritual potentialities."
Since at the Moment of Enlightenment the Buddha is said to have generated sufficient Energy to "rock the entire universe" and the above question is also in the context of coupling the insight (vipassana) and serenity (samatha) Energies at the Moment of Path Entry, could we now see a connection between the Kundalini Shakthi of Hinduism and the Vishwa Shakthi (Cosmic Consciousness) of Buddhism?
