Hinduism - What Is The Muladhara Chakra?


Muladhara Chakra is a chakra located in the center of the body.

The muladhara chakra is one of the six psychic centers (chakras) thought to exist in the subtle body, according to several schools of yoga and tantra, a secret ritual-based religious practice.

The subtle body is a parallel physiological system to the material body that exists on a different level of reality than matter.

Three vertical channels link the six psychic centers, which are shown as multipetaled lotus flowers running approximately down the spine.

Each chakra has symbolic connotations with many human capabilities, numerous subtle components (tanmatras), and various seed syllables (bijaksharas) produced from Sanskrit alpha bet letters, encapsulating all holy sound.

The corporeal abodes of Shiva (consciousness) and Shakti (power), the two divine principles through which the whole cosmos came into existence, are located above and below these centers.

The homology of macrocosm and microcosm, a key Hindu belief from the time of the mysti cal books known as the Upanishads, is the basic premise underpinning the concept of the subtle body.

The six chakras are usually enumerated from the bottom up, with the muladhara chakra being the first to be enumerated.

It's shaped like a four-petaled lotus and is found around the base of the spine.

Each petal has a seed syllable, which in this instance is the consonants "va" to "sa." The muladhara chakra is said to be the physical seat of the earth element, which excretions are likened to.

The muladhara chakra is also said to be the home of kundalini, the latent spiritual force that pervades all humans and is represented as a snake looped three times around the muladhara chakra.

The muladhara, despite its connotations with the most mundane element and the most unclean body function, is also a wellspring of religious attainment potential.

See Arthur Avalon (Sir John Woodroffe), Shakti and Shakta, 1978, and Philip S. Rawson, The Art of Tantra, 1973, for further details.

The Lalana Chakra is located just above Ajna and under Sahasrara Chakra. From this stage, twelve Yoga Nadis branch out. 

The Sanskrit letters reflect the vibrations that the 12 Nadis generate: (Ha, Sa, Ksha, Ma, La, Va, Ra, Ya, Ha, Sa, Kha and Phrem). It has the letter OM as its Bija. 

The Yogi concentrates on the style of his Guru at this center and obtains all wisdom. This is in charge of the 12 pairs of nerves that connect the brain to the various sense organs.

Sushumna Nadi contains the Anahata Chakra (Sukshma centre). The heart is under its influence. In the human body, it refers to the Cardiac Plexus. Mahar Loka corresponds to this.

The color of the Chakra is a rich crimson. A hexagonal space of flame, deep black color, or collyrium color exists within this Chakra (used for the eyes). The Vayu Mandal's center chakra is this one (region of air, Vayu Tattva). There are 15 Yoga Nadis that radiate from this stage. 

The Sanskrit letters that represent the sound produced by each Nadi are as follows: —kö K:ö g:ö G:ö c:ö Cö j:ö J:ö J:ö J:ö W:ö Xö Yö (kaü khaü gaü ghaü aü caü chaü jaü jhaü aü and haü) The Bijakshara y:ö (yaü), Vayu's Bija, has arrived. 

Isha (Rudra) is the presiding goddess, and Kakini is the Devata. Svayambhu Linga is found in the Muladhara Chakra, while Bana Linga is found in the Anahata Chakra. The Kalpa Vriksha, which bestows all desires, has arrived. 

At this middle, the Anahata echo, the sound of Shabda Brahman, can be heard. This sound can be heard if you do Sirshasana for a long time. Sattva Guna abounds in Vayu Tattva. This Sthana is home to Vishnu Granthi.


Vayu Tattva is fully under the guidance of whoever meditates on this Chakra. He receives Bhuchari Siddhi, Khechari Siddhi, Kaya Siddhi, and other types of Siddhi (flying in air, entering the body of another). He receives cosmic devotion as well as all other divine Sattvic characteristics.

The third Chakra from the Muladhara is Manipura. It's in the Nabhi Sthana, inside the Sushumna Nadi (region of navel). This has a physical counterpart that is in charge of the liver, intestine, and other organs. This is a critical location. Ten Yoga Nadis, which resemble lotus petals, emerge from this Chakra. 

The vibrations formed by the Nadis are symbolized by the Sanskrit letters: —Rö Zö N:ö t:ö T:ö dö D:ö n:ö p:ö Rö Zö N:ö t:ö T:ö dö D:ö n:ö p:ö Rö Zö N:ö t óaü óhaü aü taü thaü daü dhaü naü paü and phaü (óaü óhaü aü taü thaü daü dhaü naü paü and phaü) Dark clouds are the color of the Chakra. There is a space inside that is triangular in shape. 

It's called the Agni Mandala (Fire Region—Agni Tattva). The Bijakshara rö (raü), Agni's Bija, has arrived. Vishnu is the presiding deity, and Lakshmi is the Goddess. In the human body, this Chakra corresponds to Svah or Svarga Loka and Solar Plexus.


Patala Siddhi is achieved by a Yogi who concentrates on this Chakra and gains access to secret jewels as well as being cured of all diseases. Agni would not frighten him in the least (fire). “Even if he is cast into a raging pit, he will not perish” (Gheranda Samhita).

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).

At the foot of the spinal column is the Muladhara Chakra. It is located between the reproductory organ's root and the anus. It is located just below the Kanda, at the intersection of the Ida, Pingala, and Sushumna Nadis. The Muladhara Chakra is located two fingers above the anus and about two fingers below the genitals, with a diameter of four fingers. Since the other Chakras are above it, this is the Adhara Chakra (support). This Chakra houses Kundalini, which provides strength and energy to all of the Chakras. As a result, Muladhara or Adhara Chakra, which is the support of everything, is called.


From this Chakra four important Nadis emanate which appear as petals of a lotus. The subtle vibrations that are made by each Nadi are represented by the Sanskrit letters: v:ö S:ö \:ö and s:ö (vaü, ÷aü, ùaü, and saü.)

The Yoni in the Chakra's center is known as Kama, and it is worshipped by Siddhas. Kundalini is latent here. This Chakra's Devata is Ganesha. Below this Chakra are the seven underworlds: Atala, Vitala, Sutala, Talatala, Rasatala, Mahatala, and Patala Lokas. This Chakra is associated with Bhu Loka or Bhu-Mandal, the physical plane (earth region). Above this Chakra are the Bhuvah, Svah or Svarga, Maha, Jana, Tapa, and Satya Lokas. The Muladhara Chakra controls certain small Chakras in the limbs, which are referred to as the underworlds.

The Yogi has overcome the Prithvi Tattva by penetrating this Chakra by Prithvi Dharan. He is unconcerned with mortality on Earth. Prithvi is a yellow-colored character. The ‘Bija' is the golden Tripura (fire, light, and moon). The great energy (Param Tejas) that rests on the Muladhara Chakra and is known as Svayambhu Linga is also known.

The golden area known as Kula is located near this Linga, and Dakini is the presiding deity (Shakti). This Chakra contains Brahma Granthi, or Brahma's knot. The Anahata and Ajna Chakras are home to Vishnu Granthi and Rudra Granthi.

Muladhara Chakra's Bijamantra is l:ö (laü).

The wise Yogi who focuses and meditates on the Muladhara Chakra learns everything there is to know about Kundalini and how to awaken it. Kundalini gains Darduri Siddhi, the ability to rise from the earth, when he is awoken. He has complete power of his breath, mind, and sperm. His Prana joins the Brahma Nadi in the east. Many of his sins have been expunged. He learns about the past, present, and future. He appreciates the natural bliss (Sahaja Ananda).
