Kundalini Research Foundation, Ltd. (KRF)

American organization concerned with the study of kundalini, believed to be the powerful life force related to procreation and higher consciousness, originally described in ancient Hindu treatises on yoga and spiritual development, but also known in various cultures and religions throughout history. The KRF is particularly concerned with the writings of Pandit Gopi Krishna (1903-1984), who wrote from personal experience of the arousal of kundalini and consequent states of higher consciousness.

The KRF acts as a clearinghouse for information on all aspects of kundalini, including correlation of traditions in various cultures, personal experiences, and scientific study of the phenomenon. Address: P.O. Box 2248, Darien, CT 06820. Website: http://www.renature.com/KRF/.
