  • As mentioned and shown above, the human body is made of three channels (Nadis). The left channel (Ida Nadi or ) takes care of our desires (Ichha shakti). The right channel (Pingla Nadi) takes care of our working ability (Kriya Shakti). The central channel (sushumna Nadi) is the channel of balance and ascent of kundalini. If we have too many desires but we do not work accordingly (if our attention is always lost in unfulfilled desires and in the past), then our left channel is under pressure. These type of people become very emotional, conditioned & day dreamers and their left chanl becomes weak. Similarly if a person starts working too much (work alcoholic) without enjoying his day to day life (if he is is always thinking and planning about future), his right channel comes under pressure. Such type of people become very egoist and do not listen to anybody. They become very harsh and gets satisfaction by dominating others. In such unbalanced extremities, stress is created in human body if any of the channel is overworked.

  • 4. Chakras
    • 7 energy centres, plexuses, along the spinal cord
    • Chakra = Wheel. Vital life energy spins at these points.
    • Chakras control the working of the organs of their respective areas in the body
  • 5. Mooladhara Chakra
    • First chakra located slightly outside the base of the spine. Governed by the deity of innocence and wisdom.
    • Mooladhara chakra guards the Kundalini which rests in the sacrum bone against wrongful entry of unholy intentions.
  • 6. Functions of Mooladhara Chakra

    • Regulates reproduction in many ways.
  • 7. What causes Mooladhara chakra to be disturbed
    • Sexual 'liberation', adultery, perversions used in tantrism, lustful attention, constipation.
    • Occult practices and drugs
    • Main enemy of the Mooladhara is ‘lust’

    • Innocence is the quality by which we experience pure, childlike joy, without the limitations of prejudice or conditionings. Innocence gives us dignity, balance, and a tremendous sense of direction and purpose in life. It is nothing but simplicity, purity and joy.
  • 10. Swadisthan Chakra
    • The second chakra is the chakra of creativity, pure attention and pure knowledge. It is the one which connects us to the inner source of inspiration, and enables us to experience the beauty around us.
  • 11. Swadisthan Chakra
    • The pure knowledge given by this chakra is not mental, but it is direct perception of the Reality, that can be felt in our palms and indicates our subtle blockages. Also this is the center of pure, steady attention and power of concentration.
  • 12. Swadisthan Chakra
    • Governs the functions of the kidneys, the lower part of the liver, the pancreas, the spleen, the instestines

  • 14. What affects the Swadisthan Chakra
    • Too much excessive thinking, planning and futuristic attitudes and tendencies also cause the right side of the chakra to be affected.
    • When we think too much, this center gets drained of energy and diseases like diabetes or blood cancer can occur when this chakra goes completely out of balance.
    • Alcohol affects the Swadisthan chakra because the seat of our attention is not just in the head but also in the liver.
  • 15. What affects the Swadisthan Chakra

  • 17. Nabhi chakra
    • Looks after the functions of the stomach and the upper part of the liver.
    • If the functioning of the stomach is disturbed, then the process of disgestion and assimilation is affected, and thereby causes tension in this chakra.
    • Too much thinking about food or material desires also adversely affects the chakra.
  • 18. Nabhi chakra – the Chakra of Dharma and welfare
    • Centre of Dharma (innate religion).
    • Dharma (or code of moral conduct, or righteous behaviour) is necessary for human sustenance and evolution. Man has evolved from amoeba to ape to human beings because of this Dharma – which is code of law of evolution. This code of life protects and nourishes our spiritual growth.
    • Man was given the Ten commandments, as a kind of ‘code of moral conduct.’ Many other incarnations such as Lord Buddha, Prophet Mohammed also came to establish this Dharma or righteous behaviour.
    • Also the Centre of Welfare
  • 19. What causes the Nabhi chakra to be disturbed
    • As prosperity grew, the greed for money increased. Instead of receiving satisfaction from money, people started becoming obsessed with it, therefore causing great tensions and blocks at this chakra.
    • The quality of the right side of this chakra is our action in the realm of material well-being, diet, financial-arrangements, business, planning for the future, clear thinking and logic. A disorganised lifestyle, finance and lack of logic indicates disturbance in this area.
  • 20. What causes the Nabhi chakra to be disturbed
    • The left side of this chakra is affected by disrespect to the wife, household worries, a prob lem of aggressive wife and constant panic.
    • The load of a hectic lifestyle falls on the spleen and weakens the left side of this chakra.
    • A weak left side makes on vulnerable to allergies, bacteria, fungus and parasites, etc.
  • 21. What happens when the Nabhi chakra is cleared and balanced
    • The third chakra is the one that gives us the sense of generosity, complete satisfaction and contentment.
    • On the left side, the main quality of this center is peace - clearing this chakra can relieve stress and tensions.
    • On the right side, it looks after our liver which is the organ of our attention and power of concentration.
    • When enlightened by the Kundalini, the Nabhi chakra gives us our spiritual ascent, righteousness and inner sense of morality, and complete balance at all levels in our life.
    • Main quality of this chakra is ‘satisfaction and balance’
    • Main enemy of this chakra is ‘greed and adharma’
  • 22. Void (Ocean of Illusion)
    • Surrounding the second and third chakra
    • This is an area of outside influence
    • It incorporates all the aspects of existence such as personality, effects of planets, our Dharma, our physical sustenance
  • 23. What happens when our Void is enlightened
    • From time memorial, the Primordial Master became active and incarnated as the great masters.
    • The 10 incarnations are Lao-Tze, Socrates, Moses, Confucius, Zoroaster, Mohammed, Guru Nanak, Abraham, Raja Jank, Sai Nath of Shirdi.
    • The 10 incarnations also correspond to the 10 petals of the Nabhi chakra.
    • These Masters came down to help human ascent. They gave principles for matining a balance in daily life and avoiding extremes.
  • 24. What happens when our Void is enlightened
    • When the Kundalini enlightens the Void, then one becomes one’s own guru. since you can feel on your fingertips all your subtle problems and have the power to cure them using your own Kundalini.
  • 25. What happens when our Void is enlightened
    • Establishing this center helps us get rid of all our habits, laziness, gross attachments, and everything that enslaves us in a way or another: we become our own master.
  • 26. What affects the Void
    • Unfortunately, today there are many charlatans and false gurus who are masquerading as masters and blocking the void of the pupils.
    • For a seeker, it is difficult to recognise a true master as such a person is often deceived by the master’s appeal to his own ego conception.
    • Following false "gurus" who are more interested in power tricks or your purse can damage very much the Void area. But after Self Realization, everything can be cured through the purifying power of the Kundalini in meditation.
  • 27. Heart chakra
    • The fourth chakra, the chakra of the heart, is the place where resides our Spirit, our true Self, which is eternally pure and unaffected by anything, like a shining diamond hidden within us which witnesses all our actions.
    • Our Spirit is the Source of compassion, the source of Joy and Pure Love. All the incarnations and prophets all spoke about compassion and the need to become the Spirit, i.e. through Self-Realization.
  • 28. Heart chakra
    • After Self Realization, our attention becomes for the first time connected to our Spirit and we gradually become aware of it. Our misidentifications with our ego or conditionings drop and we start becoming identified with our Spirit, which is our true nature.
  • 29. What organs does the Heart chakra look after
    • On the physical level, this chakra looks after our heart and lungs - if affected it can cause asthma or various heart conditions.
  • 30. What are the qualities of the Heart chakra?
    • On the left heart, it gives us the quality of compassion and love
    • At the centre, it manifests as complete security and confidence (at the level of the sternum bone). Antibodies that protect us against disease and negativity are formed in the bone which lies in this area.
    • At the right heart, it gives us the sense of responsibility and pure behaviour towards others - the protocol of the heart.
    • All our worries, doubts and fears are destroyed when the heart chakra is fully enlightened by the Kundalini.
  • 31. What goes against the Heart chakra?
    • On the physical side, the heart is the pump of the body/ Hence, any mental or physical excess strains the chakra and leads to a heart attach in advanced stages.
    • Use of the body as an instrument of athletic display or hatha yoga fatigues the heart chakra.
  • 32. Vishuddi Chakra
    • The Vishuddi chakra is the first filter of the body, hence it is a very sensitive centre and guards against outside viruses and bacteria.
    • Inhalation of any pollutant industrial exhaust or smoking chokes this chakra.
    • Its sensitivity is disturbed by the indiscriminate chanting of mantras.
    • Mantras given by false gurus greatly damage its sensitivity.
  • 33. Vishuddi Chakra
    • The fifth chakra is the chakra of diplomacy, of pure relationships with others, and of playful detachment.
    • It removes all our guilt and remorse when it is opened by the Kundalini, and gives us a kind and compassionate voice.
    • The tendencies to dominate others or to feel dominated by others, the feelings of superiority or inferiority and all jealousies are removed when this chakra is nourished by the Kundalini.
    • Also, the Vishuddhi is the chakra which gives us the connection with the whole, enabling us to feel our oneness and the fact that we are all part and parcel of the whole.
  • 34. Vishuddi Chakra
    • When this chakra opens out, we drop out guilt, our superiority, inferiority complex.
    • Guilt is a myth. It is an expression of ego that is not fulfilled.
    • When we realise our True identify of the Spirit, the myth of guilt simply drops.
    • The human microcosms awakens to the cosmic macrocosm.
    • Through understanding the Deity of this chakra, we can learn how through diplomacy human beings can overcome adversity through artfulness. (not cunningness)
  • 35. Agyna Chakra
    • The sixth chakra is the chakra of forgiveness and compassion.
    • Forgiveness is the power to let go of anger, hatred and resentment.
    • Forgiveness lets us discover, in humility, the nobility and generosity of the Spirit.
    • Forgiveness dissolves all our ego, conditionings, habits, false ideas of racialism, and all our misidentifications.
    • It is the narrow gate which opens the way for our consciousness to ascend to its final destination, which is the seventh center.
  • 36. Agyna Chakra
    • In the sixth step of evolution, Christ came to absolve human beings of all sin. He forgave and took upon himself all sin.
    • He helped man to realise his own ego by allowing hmself to be crucified; great penance was aroused in man, thus enabling him to see the monstrosity of his own ego and this brought about humility in him.
    • The Christ established within this chakra gives the potential for human beings to forgive and be forgiven, to clear themselves from the effects of their sins and karmas.
  • 37. Agyna Chakra
    • Hence, when we forgive others, our ego is reduced and Kundalini is able to pierce through this chakra and rise in its full glory at the seventh chakra.
    • To rise above the ego, one has to forgive everyone.
  • 38. What is bad for Agyna Chakra
    • Roving eyes disturbsn the attention of the Agnya chakra.
    • Too much visual entertainment or television or computers adversely affects this chakra.
    • Wrong notions about God block this chakra. Religious people become dogmatic; they get stuck to the letter of the scriptures and miss out the essence of the prophets. Once should not become rigid. Let us seek the spirit of the Buddha, not Buddhism, the Christ, not Christianity.
  • 39. S a h a s r a r a Chakra
    • When the Kundalini pierces the seventh chakra, collective consciousness is experienced on the central nervous system. It is not a hypothesis but an actualisation.
    • One actually feels the Kundalini rise to the apex chakra and experiences the cool gentle breeze like vibrations.
    • Peace, quiet, joyfulness settles down and one begins to feel a state of joyfulness and total harmony. It is a spontaneous process.
    • Established in this state, one maintains the awakened level of awareness in the midst of all activities.
  • 40. S a h a s r a r a Chakra
    • The only human effort involved is to put the seed to the Mother Earth. Similarly, a realised soul has to awaken your Kundalini to connect it to the Source. This is the unparalled blessing of our Holy Mother Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.
    • When the Kundalini ascends,it sucks your attention from the past and the future, then you are in the present.
    • If there are any blocks, she clears them. She is like the river of life which steadily cleans all the hurdles and makes it away to the ocean.
  • 41. S a h a s r a r a Chakra
    • As soon as the Kundalini pierces through the fontanel bone on top of our head, it becomes one with the unconscious Divine Power, which means it becomes conscious on the central nervous system.
    • We become subtle and start feeling this all pervading power on our finger tips as vibrations.
    • These vibrations are the outward expression of our connection with the energy force that holds the universe together. After realistion, one can feel these vibrations as cool breeze on one’s finger tips.
  • 42. S a h a s r a r a Chakra
    • The seventh center integrates all the chakras with their respective qualities.
    • It is the last milestone of the evolution of human awareness. Nowadays, we are at a level which corresponds to this chakra, and our consciousness is able to easily enter into this new realm of perception, which is beyond our limited mind and concepts, and which becomes absolute at the level of the Sahasrara.
    • This chakra gives us the direct, absolute perception of Reality on our central nervous system.
    • This is precisely what is achieved by Self Realization, through the spontaneous awakening of the Kundalini given by Sahaja Yoga.
