The Power of the triangle. Chakras are in the shape of a triangle

Transcript: Triangle is the basic form in the existence, in many ways. The most integrated form is a triangle. Before all this material came, like, concrete, and steel, and all this tar. Even now, I think in United States, particularly, any home has a triangular roof, isn't it? In India we've all gone for flat roofs. Because they use concrete roofs, and the weather permits a flat roof. So here still almost every...

... house around has a triangular roof. Why a triangle is, with minimum material, maximum strength comes only from a triangle. If you had to create any other form of the same strength, you would need much more material. Material's strength has to be increased. But in the form of a triangle, with very minimal material, you can get maximum strength. So always, anywhere in the world, if you give them two pieces of wood using earth as a base. You got a dwelling. So this is not just about the dwellings that you build. Even the divine hand, even the hand of the creator chose a triangle to build a basic form within you and outside of you. If you look at any molecular structure, it is a complex assembly of triangles in many ways. Similarly if you look at the human body in a different level, you will see there is something called as an energy body. The energy moves and operates in the body in a certain way. In yoga there's a whole understanding and there is a certain way of experiencing how the energy functions in your system. If you look into this with awareness, if you see the way your system is constructed, you will see the most basic form in your body is a triangle. All the nadis meet in the form of triangles. What we refer to as chakras are actually triangles. The nadis always meet in the form of triangles. We call them chakras because they symbolize movement. So that orange triangle with a circle around it, is the AgnaChakra, which is the chakra of enlightenment and knowledge. Knowing and perception. Because yoga is the science of perception. And if you have seen what are called as yantras. In South India there's lots of yantras. Have you seen? There's SriChakras, and that kind of thing. Yantra means, it's again an energy form. If you create certain forms, they have certain amount of energy. They can retain certain amount of energy. All the yantras are always built with triangles. They're a complex formation of triangles. Because that is the way the energy system of your body is built. That's the way, in many ways the fundamental aspects of existence, has happened. That's why the triangle.

The Significance of Indian Classical Music, And Activating The Chakras

Modern science tells us that the entire existence is a reverberation of energy - or in other words - an amalgamation of sounds. The human ear can hear only a small band of the spectrum. But in certain states - Rithambhara Pragna - you can hear the sounds beyond this limited spectrum. The whole existence can be experienced as sound. When sounds are arranged in a certain pattern, they impact our system in a certain way - this is the science of mantras. Indian classical music is a modification of the mantras - where both aesthetics and technical arrangements are important. Indian classical music can activate the chakras and evolve a human being into higher levels of consciousness.

What are The 7 Chakras in Our Body?

There are actually 114 chakras in the body. These are the junction points for the nadis in the human system. Nadis are the channels of praana (life energy).

Sadhguru elaborates on the significance of the number 108. These 112 chakras are arranged in 7 dimensions; it is these 7 dimensions that are referred as the 7 chakras.

What is Muladhara Chakra?

Mul-adhar means foundation. This chakra is the foundation of the physical and energy structure of a human being. It is very important to have a stable foundation. Only if the Muladhara Chakra is stabilized, one will experience health and wellbeing in life. Sadhguru narrates a beautiful story about Allama Mahaprabhu, a great sage, and elaborates on three fundamental ways in which the secretions of the pineal gland can be used - to strengthen the body and make it like a rock; bring high levels of drunkenness and blissfulness within you; make yourself like thin air and super-hype your perception.

When Do The Chakras Manifest In The Fetus?

Around the twelve week mark, only one chakra is formed in the fetus; the Muladhara. Then, in the first twenty eight to thirty two weeks, the first five chakras, upto Vishudhi, are formed. How much do Agna and Sahsrar (the remaining two chakras) get, varies for every human being. By observing an infant's eyeball movement, and the way they cry, you can tell if the Agna is established or not. Sahsrar is generally not developed for most. In the Indian culture, there were many traditions, during pregnancy and infancy to facilitate the chakra's development in the mother's womb.

What is Sahasrar Chakra?

Sahasrar, the 7th chakra, is not a physical space. You can not stay there for too long. If you do, you can't hold onto the body. When your energies are in Sahasrar, you will simply float around in ecstasy. In that state, you cannot be functional in terms of human activity. Sadhguru also tells us about the third day's moon, and the symbolism of why it adorns as an ornament on Shiva's head. Sadhguru also elaborates on what is soma rekha, the tradition of pradosham in South Indian temples.

What is Agna Chakra?

Agna, the 6th Chakra, is the highest level of discernment and is the source of knowing. Agna is without any color, that is why it is related to vairagya. When your energies move into Agna, your perception will go beyond the normal limitations, and you will see everything the way it is. If this happens without any sweetness of emotion within you, you may completely lose interest in everything. Balance of clarity and sweetness of emotion is essential before touching Agna.

What is Manipuraka Chakra?

Manipura (or Manipuraka), is the 3rd chakra. It is the maintenance center of the body.

Are There Really 7 Chakras?

Many people refer to yoga as a philosophy. Philosophies are made up - they have nothing to do with reality. In yoga, there is no philosophy. Yogis are not a product of philosophies or scriptures. When they shared their experiences, people around them wrote it down. Whenever something is written down, the writer's mind also goes into it. So, these 7 chakras are not like 7 segments, this is just a certain classification for the intellect to grasp. Otherwise, life is happening as one big whole!
