MENTION SEVEN CHAKRAS OF SUBTLE BODY ?CHAKRA-01
WHAT IS CHAKRA?---
1-Chakras are those energy centres through which the Cosmic energy flows into the human body. The practise of mantra japa &Pranayam in daily Life" can awaken these centres. 2-The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’. Literally translated from the Hindi it means ‘Wheel of spinning Energy’. A chakra is like a whirling, vortex like, powerhouse of energy. 3-The chakras are not something physical, we can’t see them. They are aspects of our consciousness. But, chakras help us to understand the close relationship between our consciousness and our body, or what we call as the mind-body relationship. 4-1-Here’s a simple explanation of where the chakras are located and how the vital life force flows. The life force (prana, chi, or simply energy of the subtle body) flows through the Shushumna Nadi corresponding to the spinal cord of the physical body. 4-2-To the left of Shushumna is the Ida channel which carries the feminine or lunar energy. Ida corresponds to the left side of the body and the right brain. It controls the mental processes. 4-3--To the right of Shushumna is the Pingala channel which carries the masculine or sun energy. Pingala corresponds to the right side of the body and left brain. It controls the vital processes. 4-4-Ida and Pingala are very much like the negative and positive charges of electricity flowing through complex circuits. 4-5-Ida and Pingala twist around the Shushumna very similar to that of the Caduceus symbol (sometimes used as symbol for doctors). 5-The points on the Shushumna where Ida and Pingala cross each other form the energy centers called Chakras. In a healthy body, the energy flow is harmonious and all the chakras are in equilibrium. In the blocked chakras (similar to a blocked artery), the energy does not flow harmoniously. This results in imbalance of the chakras. 6-The physical manifestation of each chakra is through specific glands/nerves in the endocrine system and the nervous system. An imbalance in the chakras is expressed through these systems resulting in physical and mental illness.
