In any practice to achieve success in the process of Kundalini awakening it is important to open these psychic knots. However, it is quite difficult because granthis inextricably connected with all that we are accustomed to thinking of our personality, our habits, qualities, desires. Three granthis together constitute the unconscious complexes (samskara) woven by illusion, and the weight and rigidity of the past is a strong opposition to the passage of spiritual power.
Brahma Granthi is the first major block that sadhaka need to transcend. This granthi keeps a person under the illusion of the material benefits, physical pleasures, lethargy, ignorance and uncertainty.
Among all the most powerful is an illusion of physical pleasure. This granthi plays an important role, because it is responsible for the material man's thinking. It creates a kind of attraction in the nature of the human mind. Illusions that are created by Brahma Granthi, may be represented as:
• Permanent sexual thoughts and sexual activity
• Permanent hunger, which is difficult to satisfy
• Need of money, land and other tangible things
