Information About The Chakras:
‘Chakras’ is derived from the Sanskrit word “cakram” meaning “wheel” or “circle”. The individual chakras are referred to as: 1) Chakrum; 2) Chakra; 3) Cakrum; 4) Cakra. It is alleged that the subtle life energy known as ‘prana’ is channeled from the chakra points through a vast network of subtle nerves called nadis. These nadis are said to supply the etheric bodies (kosas) with light, which is responsible for intellect, wisdom, understanding, clarity of mind and awareness. It is said there are as many as 88,000 chakras and 77,000 nadis in our entity and each chakra is ruled by a particular god (truth) or goddess (wisdom). The culimation of all these truths and facets of wisdom (through chakra activation) is said to result in enlightenment or illumination.
There are several different types chakra concepts that can be found in Hindu agamas, tantric texts (Sat-Cakra-Nirupana and the Padaka-Pancaka), Vajrayana Buddhism, the Himalayan Bönpo religion, traditional Chinese acupuncture, rGyud-bzhi (Four Tantras) and Vagbhata’s Ashtangahrdaya.
There are primarily six major chakra centers that culimate in Sahasrara, which is often called the “crown chakra”. The crown chakra has been described as a state of transcendence and enlightenment and is not always considered a chakra.
Different types of crystals, minerals and semi-precious stones are often used in New Age practices to awaken and balance the chakras. These “chakra stones” are usually selected by matching the color of the crystals, minerals or semi-precious stones with the corresponding chakra colors. For example, indigo colored azurite would be used for the indigo colored third-eye chakra and orange colored carnelian would be used for the orange colored navel chakra. It is believed that various types of crystals, minerals and semi-precious stones help in opening & balancing the chakras. Crystal pendulums are often used to detect and align the chakras. Mudras (or specific hand gestures) are also believed to stimulate subtle energies within the chakras. In Hinduism, various mantras are used to awaken the kundalini and to open the chakras.

The Chakras And Kundalini Yoga Shakti / Energy:
The kundalini yoga chakras are said to have spiritual qualities associated with them and many of their opulances remain dormant until they are opened and nourished by the mysterious kundalini power. Kundalini is a word taken from the sanskrit word “kundal”, which means “coiled up”. Kundalini is envisioned as coiled up at the base of the spine and its ascent upward through the seven chakras activates their dormant powers, truths and wisdoms. The powers, truths and wisdoms located within the 7 chakras are discussed in Patanjali’s yoga sutras.
Adi Shankara described kundalini as:
“Having filled the pathway of the Nadis with the streaming shower of nectar flowing from the Lotus feet, having resumed thine own position from out of the resplendent Lunar regions and Thyself assuming the form of a serpent of three and a half coils, sleepest thou, in the hollow of Kula Kunda (Kula Kunda means the hollow of Mooladhara Sacrum bone)...Thou art residing in secrecy with Thy Lord (The spirit) in the thousand petalled Lotus, having pierced through the Earth situated in ‘Mooladhara’, the Water in Manipura, the Fire abiding in the Svadhisthana, the Air in the Heart (‘Anahata’), the Ether above (Visshuddhi) and ‘Manas’ between the eyebrows (‘Agnya’) and thus broken through the entire ‘Kula Path’.” (Saundarya-Lahari 9.10.)
