Muladhara Chakra In Tantra Yoga Root Chakra And Kundalini Shakti Awakening With Mantras By Rohit Anand New Delhi India

Mooladhara Chakra or Root Chakra in Tantra Yoga. 

The basics of life are symbolized at the bottom of the pyramid, if we don't have the food and shelter, we cant  or wont really  be concerned about much else. Survival is the first order of conscious existence. If you can't breathe, air is what you need. So the first level is physiological in scope. the same kind of foundation , with exceptions is established in the Muladhara or the first chakra. Mooladhara chakra is location is near the coccygeal plexus beneath the sacrumit, while its kshetram is supposed to be located between the perineum and the coccyx or the pelvic bone. Because of its location and connection with the act of excretion or expulsion, it is associated with the anus too in human body. Muladhara is said to be the base from which the three main psychic channels or nadis emerge: the Ida nadi, Pingala nadi and Sushumna nadi.

Element : Earth.
Issues : Survival, Security .
Seed Sound : Lam or Lahm.
Location : Base of Spine.
God And Goddess : Lord Ganesha and Dakini.

Once the survivability is assured, security comes next as everyone wants to be free from  constant anxiety, connected from from basic human needs of surviving and securing oneself. Then comes  the next level and that is of pleasure and sexual identity. After two sets of needs are satisfied to the extent that the mind feels free enough to consider other things, exercise of personal will and power, the need for love and a sense of belonging appears. We develop a sense of relationship with friends and lovers, family and others stemming from social needs of human beings social character. Within a social dynamic of any kind comes the need for recognition, in the form of esteem. We need or desire to have good understanding within the group. We long for the sense of competency, achievement, some kind of mastery with its corresponding status or fame. We desire to receive appreciation by the group, city, nation or career group--- recognition that is deserved as opposed to squeezed through inappropriate pressure by threat of harm, giving of money under the table, and similar kinds of fraud. The last stage in Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is self actualization, where  a person comes to that for which they are most suited by nature and constitution.

The Muladhara chakra as the base of the spine is where we will begin. From birth to the age of four, we develop an inner sense of who we are and what our relationship is to the world. Basic communication skills can become quite good, while certain pieces of analytical cognition are completely missing. Once the basic security needs in life have been taken care of, the mind starts to think about other things.

Petals : Four.
Deity : Indra.
