Hinduism - What Is The Pingala Nadi?


Pingala Nadi  in the ancient notion of the subtle body, one of the vertical channels (nadi).

The subtle body is a physiological system that is thought to exist on a separate level than coarse matter, yet with certain similarities to the material body.

It's shown as a series of six psychic centers (chakras) that run nearly parallel to the spine and are joined by three parallel vertical channels.

The corporeal abodes of Shiva (consciousness) and Shakti (power), the latter as the latent spiritual force known as kundalini, are located above and below these centers.

The pingala nadi is the vertical canal on the right side of the body in this delicate body image.

The pingala nadi, like the rest of the subtle body, has symbolic correspondences; in particular, it is associated with the sun and is therefore represented as a tawny red hue.
