Chakras


 
 
 

The ChakrasEvery one of the centers that are called chakras corresponds to an area of the body, certain behavioral characteristics and a stage of spiritual growth. Chakras represent specific psychophysical energies that are activated one by one through the breath along with the flow of the elements throughout daily life. Aroused by the practices of Tantra Yoga, the dormant spiritual Kundalini energy can be made to leave the first chakra and pierce the chakras above, causing various spiritual experiences to occur.

Each of the seven chakras represents a definite set of desires that correspond to a particular element (up to the fifth chakra). While desires should not be cultivated, they should be fulfilled if they are found to be really present instead of artificial. Otherwise one will be inevitably drawn back to them. The understanding of the seven chakras offers a way to balance ones desires and lead a more happy and spiritual life along personal destiny.

In Kundalini yoga or Laya yoga, a large set of techniques is used to concentrate all life force in the Sushumna Nadi and raise the coiled Kundalini energy through all seven chakras towards the seventh chakra. In this way, the divine mother Shakti, in the form of Kundalini, can find union with her beloved, the supreme Shiva, who resides in eternal bliss at the top of the skull. Thus one can move beyond the elements and achieve the non-dual consciousness that brings liberation from the ever-changing world of illusion (Maya).
