I would like to put down my views as a psychiatrist.
Kundalini is a model that is used from ages to understand the abstract nature of creative energy.
Though attempts have been made in the past
about correlating kundlini and chakras with ida, pingala and Sushma with the anatomy of human body nothing is satisfied.
Whether you are aware of kundalini or not, when you meditate, consciousness level is going to transform from narrowness to broadness.
These different levels of consciousness are probably similar to chakras.
Kundalini and prana looks to be same as they are basically energy. If they are same, and if kundalini is dormant, how can life process go on?!
Dormant kundlaini concept can be understood in this way ie. it is a part of our unconscious mind from which it has to be awakened to make it conscious. Which in turn is goal of meditation. During this process many hurdles one comes accross and depending upon so many other factors, symptoms occur, which some label normal, abnormal etc. It is almost similar to seven blind men who described the elephant depending upon their ideas. Overall it is nice to read and is a good book.
