Some people are blessed with the midas touch, whatever they do in life becomes a success. Bewildered, many wonder whether these feats are luck or fluke but with the help of their seven senses they too can chalk out their destiny

 

According to Tantric Physiology, we have five senses, sight, smell, sound, taste and touch which are connected to the brain through our sense organs, and activated by our endocrine glands. The endocrine glands are connected to the chakras (energy centres), sharirs (bodies) and koshas (sheath).

 

Our vital life force energy called Kundalini passes through:

Three bodies - (i) Stula (physical), (ii) Shushma (astral) and (iii) Karanna (causal).

 

2) Five Koshas - (i) Anamaya Kosha (Physical sheath), (ii) Pranamaya Kosha (Breath sheath) - (iii) Manomaya Kosha (Mental sheath), (iv) Vijyanamaya Kosha (Knowledge sheath), (v) Anandamaya Kosha (Bliss sheath).

 

3) These Seven Chakras have corresponding endocrine glands and

organs :

i) Muladhara Chakra: (Birth Centre) has the testes & ovaries – penis and vagina – Reproductive systems as corresponding organs.

ii) Swadisthana Chakra: (Death Centre) corresponds to the adrenal glands – kidneys and colon – Urinary systems.

iii) Manipura Chakra: (Solar Plexus) corresponds to the pancreas and spleen – intestines and liver - Digestive system.

iv) Anahatha Chakra: (Heart Centre) corresponds to the thymus gland – heart and lungs - respiratory system.

v) Visudhi Chakra: (Throat Centre) corresponds to the thyroid and parathyroid glands - throat, mouth and tongue - speech and sound system.

vi) Ajna Chakra: (Third Eye) corresponds to the pituitary and hypothalamus glands - brain (partial), eyes and ears - visual system.

vii) Sahashrar Chakra: (Crown) corresponds to the pineal gland – brain - consciousness (sub-conscious mind, conscious mind and intellect ).

 

When the Kundalini (vital life force energy), which sleeps like a coiled serpent, is aroused by any tantric meditation, she uncoils and rises from the base, Muladhara Chakra (tip of the spine/in the front of coccyx) to Swadhistana Chakra. Here the basic instinct, sexuality is transformed into creativity. The mantra is ‘LAM’, while the mudra is ‘Prithvi mudra’  (Mudra of Earth) and the colour is Red.

History says that Krishna, Buddha and Christ had achieved it and in terms of modern science, it is the awakening of the seventh sense – a transcendence of consciousness to the highest realms of Truth, Peace and Harmony. For this we do not need to go to temples, churches, mosques or to Gurus. Let us now enkindle our seventh sense, through this Siddha Kundalini - Tantric Meditation.

It is inside us and only we can activate it. So let us meditate.
