Carl Jung

"To activate the unconscious means to awaken the divine, the devi, Kundalini - to begin the development of the suprapersonal within the individual in order to kindle the light of the gods. Kundalini, which is to be awakened in the sleeping Muladhara world, is the suprapersonal, the non-ego,… For this reason Kundalini is the same principal as the Soter, the Savior Serpent of the Gnostics."

The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga, Carl Jung.
Lecture 4, 26 October 1932, Notes of the Seminar, Princeton University Press, USA, 1996, Page 68/69


"You see, the Kundalini in psychological terms is that which makes you go on the greatest adventures. …It is the quest that makes life livable, and this is Kundalini; this is the divine urge."

The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga, Carl Jung.
Lecture 1, 12 October 1932, Notes of the Seminar, Princeton University Press, USA, 1996, Page 21


"Now we have to speak of Kundalini and what she is, or how she can be awakened?" Jung then explains how the awakening comes about… "by the grace of heaven, which is the Kundalini. Something in you, an urge in you, a leading spark, some incentive,… And that is the Kundalini."

"it is most important that you should be born; you ought to come into this world- otherwise you cannot realize the self, and the purpose of this world has been missed."

The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga, Carl Jung.

"the urge to realization, naturally pushes man to be himself. Given a chance to be himself, he would most certainly grow into his own form, if there were not obstacles and inhibitions of many descriptions that hinder him from becoming what he is really meant to be."

The Psychology of Kundalini Yoga, Carl Jung.

"Sakti-Kundalini or Devi-Kundalini is a goddess. She is the female principle, the self manifesting power which surrounds the gem at the center, the gold seed, the jewel, the pearl, the egg. The Kundalini serpent is, however, also Devi-Kundalini, a chain of glittering lights, the "world bewilderer"."

"From the standpoint of the gods this world is less than child's play; it is a seed in the earth, a mere potentiality. Our whole world of consciousness is only a seed of the future. And when you succeed in the awakening of Kundalini, so that she begins to move out of here mere potentiality, you necessarily start a world which is a world of eternity, totally different from our world."

All the great self-realized souls and scriptures have spoken about kundalini and/or self-realization. For example:
