Sahaja Yoga Mooladhara The Mooladhara chakra is situated at the base of the spine within the pelvic plexus. Moola means ‘root’ and adhara means ‘the support.’ It is the foundation of the whole subtle system and hence very important in Sahaja Yoga. On a gross level it governs excretion and sex. On a subtle level it is responsible for the qualities of innocence, wisdom, chastity and holiness within us. Innocence is a quality that is evident in babies and young children as well as some adults and provides them with a magenetic quality. Innocence can never be destroyed. It is an eternal quality, but it can be covered by the clouds of incorrect actions.

Through Sahaja Yoga cleansing pratices we can purify this centre and bring it back into a balanced state. This centre is strongly associated with the earth element, and hence sitting on the Mother Earth is very helpful. It is also good to place the feet in a bowl of warm water containing salt, also known as footsoaking. It helps to keep the attention on nature, especially the earth, the sky and grass, as these sooth and cleanse the attention.

Now this first centre is very important because this was the first centre that was created when the Primordial Being started doing the job. This is the centre of innocence that is holiness. First thing that was created was holiness on this earth. This centre is very important in all the human beings because animals have innocence. They have not lost it, while we have a right or we can say we have a freedom to abandon it. We can do it, we can somehow or other destroy it by our so-called ideas of freedom.

Now this centre has a power to give us wisdom. Now wisdom is such a, such a word that cannot be explained. Wisdom is the balance between your understanding of what is good and what is bad. Where you really understand what is good for you, for your spirit, is wisdom; and when this centre is alive and is not destroyed then you really know what is wisdom is. For example the person who has got this centre very well developed can tell you whether it is the north or the south, because the magnetism that is in the Mother Earth, this centre is made by the element of Mother Earth. So the magnetism that is in the Mother Earth is there present in this centre. When the birds fly all the way from Siberia to Australia they do it with the help of this centre because they know whether they are moving northward or southward. They have an innate wisdom to know which way to move and that’s why one should know that this centre is also within us but we have lost our sense of judgment because we have lost that magnetism within us.

An innocent person is really like a magnet and it attracts, he attracts, the people towards himself, just like a flower attracts a bee towards itself. There are some fishes in which they have found actual magnetic a, field and in some of them they have even found a regular magnet placed in certain fishes by which they know whether they are going north, south, east or west. This centre in us can be destroyed by various ways as I told you last time. Now if you see on from the top there’s a blue line coming down. This is the power of our desire, by which we desire; is the emotional side of a human being. When a person neglects his emotional side or does not respect his emotional side then this centre gets lost. It gets very much destroyed. The emotional side in these modern times is not well understood by human beings. I’m sorry to say but it is very true that when you destroy this centre, first thing that sets in is impotency or over activity, like the rapist and all that are created because this centre is neglected.

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, speaking at a Sahaja Yoga public program in Sydney, 24 March 1981

Agnya chakra

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

Shri Mataji, founder of Sahaja Yoga

The Agnya, situated in the middle of the brain, is the gateway to the last energy centre, the Sahasrara Chakra, and so it is the penultimate step on the journey to our Self-realization, our yoga, our union with Divinity.

It is the Kundalini, the life force within each one of us, rising from its coils at the base of the spine, in the sacrum bone, rising up through each of the energy centres, and eventually piercing through the bone at the top of the head, the bone that was soft in our babyhood – the fontenelle bone – it is the freeing and activating and rising up of this Kundalini energy that brings about our enlightenment, our moksha, our Self-realization. And to our great good fortune, Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, the founder of Sahaja Yoga, has found a very simple way for us to take this wonderful leap forward in our evolution, this realization of the Self, this manifestation of the Spirit, this ability to feel the very essence of our being on our central nervous system. Self-realisation is a great gift, through which we gain sweet meditation, our health, well-being, peace and joy. Our oneness with the Spirit.

The Agnya. Sixth of the main energy centres, situated at the crossing of the optic thalamus (the pineal and pituuitary glands). It influences, and is influenced by, what we see, what we hear, what we think. The day of the week that the Agnya chakra is associated with is Sunday, its colour is white, its planet is the sun, its element is light (this is very important – we’ll be coming back to it) its gemstone is diamond, its place on the hand – where we can feel if the Agnya energy centre is clear and doing its job – or not – is the ring finger, and the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ was directly related to the opening up of this chakra.

The Void

Void Chakra in Sahaja Yoga

The Void is the centre of self-mastery within us. This centre enables us to remain in a balanced state in spite of the pressures of every-day existence, provided that we stay within the boundaries of certain spiritual laws. These laws can be found in the scriptures of all religions. One example of such a set of laws is the Ten Commandments. These laws are not designed to punish us, but rather to keep us in a state of harmony with each other and the Divine. When the Kundalini is awakened it enlightens this area and we become naturally righteous.

The Void in the subtle system (shown in green in the diagram of the subtle system) represents the Ocean of Illusion, also known as the Bhavasagara. The Kundalini has to cross this ocean to take us out of our state of illusion. This occurred at a symbolic level when Moses parted and then crossed the Red Sea.

Mankind has been very fortunate in that ten great masters have taken their births in order to help establish this principle of self-mastery and righteousness within us. They are: Moses, Abraham, Raja Janaka, Mohammed Sahib,Guru Nanak, Sai Nath of Shirdi, Zarathustra, Confucius, Lao Tse and Socrates.

This centre is associated with the water element and a very helpful cleansing technique is to place one’s feet into a bucket of warm water with a handful of salt and to meditate for a period of time.
