Don't make the mistake of thinking that the chakras are only awakened by a few specific forms of yoga. All paths of yoga are concerned with flowering the potential of the chakras; some more directly than others. The more direct approach is the method of kundalini, kriya and laya yoga. With karma, bhakti, jnana yoga, etc. the approach is indirect; no specific mention is made of the chakras in these systems. This does not mean that the chakras don't open, but that the chakras open as a consequence of higher levels of awareness. The chakras are opened so smoothly that they are not really felt as such. With the direct approach, the chakras are opened in order to induce a corresponding state of awareness. In the indirect approach, the chakras open as a consequence, a by-product of higher awareness. One method goes through the front door and the other goes through the back door in order to reach the same inner chamber of being.
Every religion, every mind awakening system. every spiritual system is concerned with unfolding the hidden potential of the chakras.
they are all concerned with releasing the latent faculties and knowledge of the mind, and awakening of the mind implies the same thing as awakening of the chakras. The opening of the chakras means that layer upon layer of the mind is opened up ... the closed book starts to reveal its inherent knowledge.
