Asanas, Chakras and Kundalini



Padmasana is achieved by placing the right foot on the left thigh and the left foot on the right thigh.

Both sins are destroyed by this posture.

The adamantine stance, or Vajrasana, is achieved by placing one heel below the Muladhara and the other above it while sitting in a straight line with the trunk, body, and head. Mulakanda is the source of the genital organ Kanda.


The Kundalini should be taken from the Muladhara to the Sahasrara, or thousand-petalled Lotus in the crown of the head, by a wise Yogi. Shakti-Chalana is the name given to this operation.

The Kundalini should travel through the Svadhishthana Chakra, the Manipura Chakra in the navel, the Anahata Chakra in the middle, the Vishuddha Chakra in the throat, and the Ajna Chakra between the eyebrows, also known as the Trikuti Chakra.

For the practice of Shakti-Chalana, two items are needed. The Sarasvati Chalana is one, and the restraint of Prana, or air, is the other.
