I have never arrived at any good understanding of the kundalini issue: between Gurdjieff and Rajneesh the issue ends up obscure. Rajneesh had a meditation called kundalini, which amounted to no much but dancing to music.
I am suspicious here, neither one seems to quite know what he is talking about.

A man who went to such lengths to confuse people deliberately is not
a good source for judgments of the yogas.
He is in no position to critique kundalini with such unreliable credentials. Not that I have stock in kundalini myself.
this is perhaps another case of lost knowledge. Note that my remarks on Samkhya are also critical, but I do attempt to make sense of it, ending with Bennett.
