The Svadhishthana Chakra is situated at the root of the reproductory organ, inside the Sushumna Nadi. This is the same as Bhuvar Loka. This is in charge of the human body's lower intestine, liver, and other organs. Here is the Jala Mandal (water region—Apa Tattva). There is a crescent moon-shaped area or the shape of a conch or Kunda flower within this Chakra. Lord Brahma is the presiding deity, and Goddess Rakini is the Devata. This Chakra contains Bijakshara v:ö (vaü), Varuna's Bija.

The Chakra's color is pure blood-like crimson, or Sindura's color (vermilion). Six Yoga Nadis, which resemble lotus petals, radiate from this center. The Sanskrit letters b:ö B:ö m:ö y:ö rö l:ö (baü bhaü maü yaü raü and laü) reflect the vibrations generated by the Nadis.


Water is not a threat to the individual who concentrates on this Chakra and meditates on the Devata. He has complete command of the water element. He gains a wide range of psychic abilities, intuitive intelligence, and complete mastery over his senses. He knows everything there is to know about astral bodies. Such impure qualities such as Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada, Matsarya, and others are totally eradicated. The Yogi becomes Death's conqueror (Mrityunjaya).
