How flow of energy through chakras determines human health.

Kundalini[कुंडलिनी] literally means "coiled snake" and references the ancient belief that each person carries "divine" energy at the base of the spine. This mediation practice seeks to awaken, release, and harness this energy for the yogi.

Kundalini meditation is not a set of beliefs or religion. Instead, it's a practice for evoking energy inside yourself and developing mind-body awareness.

Energy moves from Mooladhar Chakra[स्वयं भूलिँग] through 6 chakras and 3 nadis in cyclical upward movement in the human body and reaches the agya Chakra. When yogi realises that the energy has reached agya Chakra, it's observed that the 1st half of the journey has finished and Sadhna[practice] for second leg that is journey from Agya to Sahasara begins. Upon realising all 7 Chakras, enligtenment is achieved.

Kundalini is a primordial element which is studied and understood in details by yogis on the path of Kundalini Yoga. Here the yogis tries to understand how energies move in the human body, how and where it is stored, how it is raised and how all block are eliminated by chanting mantras.

Let's understand each and every chakra in detail.

Chakras are pools of energies in the human body. Only from here the energies are raised through nadis by yogi in deep state of meditations.
There are over 114 chakras in human body with every body part having some chakras. Hands and Feets have 7 chakras each, our legs and hands also have chakras. All chakras have petals with each chakras having different number, each petal corresponds to a letter in Devanagari script and individual chanting of these letter produces vibrations which heals the chakra.
It rests on 'Airavata'[Thousand tusked elephant] which is the vehicle of Lord Indra. Each chakra has a beeja mantra which is the principal vibration of the entire chakra, One should always meditate on the beeja mantra in presence of a guru.
