The idea that you can 'go insane' from practising Kechari Mudra seems a more general idea about all and any techniques which stimulate the chakras
and awaken Kundalini.
Any direct work with Kundalini can be a powerful process which changes the way the mind relates to the body and the way the body relates to the world.
Firstly there are some dangers attributing any objective reality to any progress you may or may not make, as with any spiritual systems. Delusion in
this area just adds to a possible catalogue of delusions we already have about self and the universe.
Remember also that a great many people will think you're 'insane' also for believing in any of these things. So while you may not be technically
'insane', you will demonstrate characteristics of what many societies label 'insane'. Freedom, liberation and transcendence are generally not
socially acceptable or even recognised, 'legitimate', states of being in the West. Even in the East they're only recognised by specific groups of
But once you've demonstrated the possible existence of this energy to yourself, and felt possible signs of Her awakening, most boundaries of
experience begin to fall away, which naturally leaves gaps in what the mind can and cannot assimilate into its usual categories. IMHO the primary
dangers reside here.
Asides from the damn lonliness of having unique experiences which cannot be classified according to generally accepted and consensus views about
reality. Because so much information is available to the west about yoga and kundalini, a pile of charlatans are also on hand to provide you with even
more confusion and delusion. Especially on the internet, where anyone can hide behind a mask of so-called authority.
If you're serious about these practices, best of luck! It's your birthright, no-one can say otherwise!
