The Power Stations

Chakra is a Sanskrit term meaning “wheel,” which refers to wheel-like whirling energy centers or vortices of energy that play vital roles in the proper functioning of the body.

“Major Chakras or Energy Centers are actually major acupuncture points. Chakras are very important parts of the energy body.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

These chakras are basically located in the surface of the etheric body of man, with a stem and a root in the body, each having a specific role in our system.

The functions of the chakras are not just confined to physical functions; they also control and affect the psychological and spiritual conditions of a person.

Just as there are vitals and minor internal organs in the body, the energy body has several major, minor and mini chakras that control and energize these organs altogether. Being a source of energy or Prana, when these chakras malfunction, they adversely affect the vital internal organs in the body. This phenomenon is called disease.

While the major chakras control, energize and are responsible for the proper functioning of major internal organs, minor and mini chakras supply energy to less important parts of the visible physical body.

The psychological state of a person is also dependent on the condition of various chakras. Weaknesses such as laziness, irritability, worry, forgetfulness and strengths such as productivity, compassion, creativity, intelligence and intuition are all products of the chakras, which can be purified or further improved.

Some chakras are also sites or centers of psychic faculties that if activated will led to the development of certain psychic powers; such as the Crown chakra that is the center for higher intuition and divine oneness.

The average size of the chakras basically depends on the evolutionary development of a person. The bigger the size, the more intelligent, advanced and evolved the person. Arhatic Yoga in this case is an advanced spiritual technology that serves as a medium to accelerate this evolutionary process.

“When quite undeveloped they appear as small circles about two inches in diameter, glowing dully in the ordinary man; but when awakened and vivified they are seen as blazing, coruscating whirlpools, much increased in size and resembling miniature suns.”

C. W. Leadbeater

In traditional literature, mainly seven chakras have been introduced while sometimes you may have read about 9, 11 or even 12 major chakras in spiritual textbooks and esoteric sciences as well. According to Master Choa Kok Sui, all are correct. The key word is only!

“They have never mentioned that there are only seven chakras. The key word is only. The problem is that the students or readers assume that there are only seven chakras. This is an assumption without any basis… The student must remember that truth is dynamic, not static. This is the basis behind progress. One must be ready to discard lower truth for higher truth.”

Master Choa Kok Sui

In Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna mentions about the city with nine gates. Upanishads refers to a city with eleven gates, which correspond to the 11 major chakras. In Kabbala, there exist ten energy centers with one hidden center that makes a total of eleven.

Grand Master Choa Kok Sui through his books and teachings reveals the existence of eleven major chakras together with one more chakra; the 12th Chakra.

In alternative medicine and complementary therapies including Pranic Healing these chakras are basically being treated to improve a wide range of physical and psychological ailments. In such systems, the physical and psychological function of the chakras and how they affect ailments is the area of focus.

To know more about the chakras and their functions, you are encouraged to read a book by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui with the same title.

Tool Box for Mind – Mantras

Standard

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

the Indian spiritual scriptures “Vedas” speak about the divine sound current “Shabda Brahma” which permeates all and is a key to creation.The Mystical Sufi master Hazrat Inayat Khan has written “Divine sound is the cause of all Manifestation”. In the early part of twentieth century H.P Blavatsky founder of the Theosophical Society wrote in the “Secret Doctrine, Sound is a tremendous occult(hidden) power.In ‘Kabbalah’ jewish mystical tradition , the power of vowels is said to be divine. Zohar the major book of Kabbalah also speaks about the sounds that brought our physical universe into existence.

My Father is deeply connected with music and as a child I always experienced the magic of music Ragas and Ragini (Indian Classical Music). Recently on a visit to The Osho International Meditation Resort in Pune in March 2014 I was amazed to see how all his meditations were based on Sound and Powerful music. I am providing this information also because most of us love music ; the music we hear affects our emotional and mental well being so we should be very particular in choosing what we feed our senses.

Coming back to Mantras we all understand Nada Brahma 🙂 – The World is Sound. Mantra is a Sanskrit word literal meaning Mann (Mind) +Tra (tool) – Tool of Mind. The mystic Sufi Master “Vilayat Inayat Khan states “the practice of mantra actually kneads the flesh of the body with sound”

Mantra can help you feel more peaceful and energized as these are ‘Power Words. The Mantra in itself does not have a meaning but the vibration produced by repeating a mantra aligns our vibration to the vibrations of the cosmos.This itself gives a feeling of peace and harmony.

Lets do a small practical using the Mantra OM.“Om” (or Aum/Amen/Ameen) as the primordial sound, representing the infinite universal consciousness. Find a quiet place and sit in a comfortable position. Close your eyes and center your attention at the center of your heart, you can also tap your heart to focus. Now chant the mantra Om 11 times loudly and then internalize it for another 11 counts. Once you are done open your eyes and reflect on your experience.  Try this meditation everyday and reflect on your experience.

The experience with the Mantra is very unique for each of us and we have to experience it to understand. Here is a Meditation compiled by me using the Mantra “Aham Brahma Asmi” I am the Universe.

Mantras are also Chakra based sounds – Similarly each chakra has a specific vibration or primordial sound that we can repeat to release any energy that may be congested in that region. We can open up blocked energy by focusing our attention and intention on the location of a chakra, and repeating its associated sound or mantra aloud. The following is a list of the energy centers and their corresponding vibrational sounds:

Tuning Chakras - Sargam

The practice of sound healing is referred to as chakra tuning and helps heal the body and enliven the energy centers.

When we combine a Mantra with Intention it adds on to its physical and spiritual benefit. As this helps to combine the sound energy with the power of intentions increasing the energetic effect of the Mantra.

So for example if we take the Mantra for throat Chakra “Ham” and use the intention I communicate with ease also visualize the throat chakra being bathed in liquid white light, it strengthens the throat chakra more as compared to just saying the mantra.

We are made up of life force Prana and Mantras help energize the Prana so when we visualize the organ or chakra being filled with Prana it helps heal that specific part of the body.

Mantras help to raise our vibrations once we understand energy we will be able to appreciate this science which the ancient rishis and sages left for us to benefit.In order to transform our lives the only thing we need to do is raise our own vibrations, prosperity , abundance, love and peace can be attained only if we stay in a state of high vibration.Mantra have been used for thousand of years and hence are very very powerful tools provided through ancient wisdom.

Sound Healing and Mantras are a very vast subject in itself but for now try out and share your experiences with me. While writing I myself worked on tuning my Throat Chakra 🙂

Here is a list of Some Powerful Mantras:

1. Om (Multipurpose Mantra)

2. Om Namah Shivaya Om (Disintegrating Negative Energies and Thought Forms)

3. Gayatri Mantra (Spiritual Development)

4. Om Shrim Mahalakshmiyei Swaha  (Properity and Abundance)

5. Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Se So Hum (Universal Healing Mantra)
