Recollections of the early days and Diwali – the festival of light, the celebration of good over evil and light over darkness.
Selection of songs and mantras for the Heart chakra performed by Sahaja Yogi musicians. The Heart chakra has three aspects and is the fourth chakra of the subtle system. In the left heart resides our Spirit, in the centre heart is our sense of security and in the right heart is our guide to the boundaries of good conduct.
In the Sahasrara, the whole instrument is integrated. Each chakra has its place here. When Kundalini reaches Sahasrara the lotus petals open and enlightenment (samadhi) takes place. You may feel a flow of cool vibrations from the fontanele bone area on top the head. Putting our attention on this chakra can help us experience mental silence – the true meditation.
The Agnya Chakra, sometimes called the third eye, is placed at the centre of the brain. When Kundalini passes through the chakra, our thought waves elongate so that the space between two thoughts grows wider. As the petals of the chakra open, silence blossoms in the centre and spreads outwards, pushing the thoughts to the periphery of your awareness. In thoughtless awareness, you actually feel this beautiful silence which is at the heart of creation. Just like the vibrations, this expansion of silence is a wave created without percussion. Absolute and therefore beyond causality, all you can say is that it is.
The Vishuddhi chakra has sixteen petals, each with different qualities and functions. On the physical side, it looks after throat, arms, face, mouth, teeth, etc., so they must all be taken care of. For instance, protecting yourself from the cold, avoiding tobacco, taking proper dental care, and so on. This is particularly important for your vibratory awareness, as the nerves which register the vibrations in the hands pass through this centre.
