CHAKRAS: THE PSYCHIC CENTRES OF YOGA AND TANTRA

According to the Rishiculture Ashtanga Yoga tradition codified by Yogamaharishi Dr Swami Gitananda Giri, there are six lower and six higher Chakras making a total of twelve Chakras. The lower Chakras known as the Pinda Chakras are related to the physical body while the higher six Chakras, the Anda Chakras are related to the Cosmos. Chakras vibrate at very high speeds of vibration and at their highest speeds of vibration are related to the cosmos. Each of the lower six Chakras has various neuro-endocrine correlates and is associated with one of the five Jnanendriyas and Karmendriyas as also different psychological qualities. This book deals with the Chakras in a detailed manner with magnificent images that were conceptualized by Pujya Swamiji more than 50 years ago. Asanas related to each Chakra and their specific Mandala Pranayamas are elaborated in detail. The unique practices of Chakra Mediation and Mandala Dharana are also added bonuses in this book.

  5. 5. CHAKRA AWARENESS WITH HASTHA MUDRAS Hastha Mudras or the hand gestures can be used to increase awareness of the energies at the differentChakric levels. Sit in Vajra Asana or in the toes turned under posture known as Vajra Veera Asana. Stretch your arms upwards and join your palms together in the AnjaliMudra. The whole back is given an excellent stretch in this posture. The entire Pranamaya Kosha aswell as the Sahasrara Chakra and all the higher Chakras that exist above it are energized by thisMudra. Slowly bring your hands down to your head with y o u r w r i s t s touching the top of your head thus forming a beautiful triangular frame for your face. This is the Kailash Mudra that energizes the SahasraraChakra. 42
  6. 6. When the hands are brought down from the Kailash Mudra and placed in front of the forehead we can energize our Ajna Chakra or centre of inner intuition. This energizes our Pituitary Gland that is the master conductor of our endocrine orchestra and helps us to obtain excellent glandular health. As we bring the Namaskar Mudra to the front of the neck we can feel th e e n e r g e t i c vibrations that r e c h a r g e t h e V i s h u d d h a C h a k r a a n d normalize our thyroid function. When the Namaskar Mudra is brought down to the chest region we can feel the healing energies flood through our Anahata or heartChakra. When practised in the proper manner, this sequence of Mudras helps us to recharge the psychic battery of our Pranamaya Kosha and produces health andwell being at all levels of our existence. 43
  7. 7. The system of meditation known as Yantra, based on Drishti or a fixed gaze and sacred geometric shapes known as Mandalas is almost identical in classical Yoga and Tantra. Mandalas are geometric Yantras or forms of Shakti embodied within the Chakras of the body. Each centre has its ownMandala which is also associated with the element of the Mahabhuta associatedwith the centre. The Jnanendriyas and Karmendriyas of each centre are also subservient to the power of theMandala. The symbols used for Mandala Dharana or Mandala Dhyana differ slightly with the symbols used for the Chakras themselves, and vary according to the Yoga or Tantric school of instruction. The Mandala or Yantra can be used as a form of Dharana or concentration alone without entering into the meditative aspect as suggested in Laya and Yoga. Mooladhara Chakra is represented by the the Earth Symbol that is a Prithvi Mandala, YellowSquare Swadhisthana Chakra is represented by the the Water Symbol that is a Apas Mandala, Silver Crescent 44
