Mooladhara or Root Chakra is one of the seven primary chakras present in our body. This chakra is located near the basal end of the spinal column and is situated below the sacrum bone. The root chakra is considered to be the foundation chakra, as it stands as a foundation for our emotions, actions and balance. It is associated with the element of Earth and meditation on this chakra gives one the strength to balance the inner and outer energies. It also makes one innocent and wise, as it is believed to be the subtle abode of Lord Ganesha, who is praised for his child-like innocence and wisdom of the Brahman.

As a tree’s strength is determined by its roots which supports and nourishes the tree, similarly our inner strength is dependent on our roots for peace and balance. This strength lays dormant in the rootchakra and can be awakened by the practice of Yoga and Mediation. Meditating on the mooladhara chakra will mold you into a balanced, happy, content, wise and a compassionate person.

At Akshar Power Yoga Academy’s Monance Mandala sessions, we practice chanting on mooladhara’s seed mantra Lam and meditate on the subtle energies of Mother Earth that are present in us. We invite all of you to join us in our upcoming meditation sessions and experience the transcendental powers of prayers and meditation.
