Can someone explain me in short and in plain English the basic terms of the Kundalini stuff. I couldn't understand it for sure from the endless texts around.

I'm especially interested in the precise meanings of: shaktipat, shakti, tapasya, and Siddha Yoga.

Kundalini & Shaktipat

There are different methods of Kundalini awakening like Hata yoga,breathing exercises,Tantra,Mantra but most simplest way is shaktipat in Siddha Lineage.Where the Guru who is already awakened and established in His inner self / inner Guru & dually being authorized by His Guru can awaken the Kundalini of the truth seeker,it can be done only when one is totally ready for it with full faith,devotion,surrender,it is Grace of GOD which act through the GURU.GURU acts as a medium here and Grace happens to the seeker.In other methods of Kundalini awakening it may take number of years and a lots of efforts are required and most of time there are possibilities that Kundalini may not awaken and if awakened it may cause serious problems to the seekers.But in Siddha Lineage there is no such problems as Guru is there to take care of all aspects.This system is called Siddha Yoga as it is self proven and the seekers have not to put any shorts of efforts at their own.When the Kundalini is awakened in the seeker IT takes the charge ITSELF and the seekers has to just surrender to IT.After Kundalini awakening when the seeker sits in meditation the kriya(body moments),breathings,bands,mudras and other experiences take places automatically like laughing,weeping,singing,and much more ,it depends up on the nature of seeker and all these activities take place to purify the nervous system and to open all the chakra so that the energy can flow through them with ease. In siddha Lineage the transmission of energy is done through sixth chakra(fore head) and all the lower chakra and sixth one are opened at once by GURU GRACE.Shaktipat/Mystic Initiation can be done in many way most prevalent are by touch,by seeing ,by words ,by will,it can be done by the GURU up to thousands of miles to the seeker . One should be really a sincere one to receive Shaktipat only then it shows its results and leads to the seeker to its goal of Self Realization.It is GURU & disciple tradition continuously flowing through GURU to disciple from generation to generation.

Thanks madan.

So shaktipat is some kind of initiation? Does this qualified guru knows what is going on with the initiated seeker? Do you have any suggestion for someone who does it remotely?

Shaktipat/Mystic Initiation

Shaktipat/Mystic Initiation
Yes it is so and that's why it is also called Mystic Initiation.
Yes the guru can have a sight in deep in Seeker and can recognize what is going on,if He desire so.

Remote shaktipat

How can I have a shaktipat from a distance? Anyone is familiar with someone recommended who gives shaktipat over the net? Is it done periodically in groups or individual?

can shaktipat happen through divine intervention?

Is it also common or possible for people to receive shaktipat from gurus who have passed over... Can this happen from divine masters who are no longer living on earth?... or is shaktipat something that happens through enlightened beings on earth? such as... is this the method for shaktipat to be transmitted... sorry if this sounds elemental... but i've been seeking understanding on this topic. thankyou

Yes it can be so

Yes Shaktipat can happen from Divine masters who are no longer in physical form in this world.
It had happened no. of times and will happen,but I would like to clarify here that ,That Divine Guru/Master also guide in indirect way to the seeker to the Living Enlightened Guru/Master for further guidance & grace.
