CHAKRA BODIES – THREE
CONNECTIONS FOR THE AJNA
There exist three additional chakra bodies that play a pivotal role in the ascension of the kundalini energy within.
They are grouped under the SOMA CHAKRA labeled as
SOMA (chakra 1)
KAMESHVARA (chakra 2)
CHAKRA BODIES – SOMA:
The soma chakra is located within the SAHASRARA (CROWN CHAKRA) found just above the AJNA.
There are many varying perceptions of the energy of this chakra. In some systems this chakra is considered a collection of three independent chakras, or as two chakras with a sub chakra or even just as chakra like bodies functioning through the THIRD EYE CHAKRA.
For our purposes here, we will denote the SOMA chakra as two sub-chakras with a chakra-like bridge.
The SOMA CHAKRA is in illumination with the imagery of a light blue white lotus with 12 or 16 petals with a crescent of silver permeated throughout.
The MOON is the source of SOMA or NECTAR for the body. This nectar is said to fllow from KAMADHENU.
CHAKRA BODIES – KAMADHENU:
KAMADHENU is known as the white cow-faced goddess. She is a wish giving cow who has pierced through the RUDRA GRANTHI
At this level of awareness the surrender of ones own personal neediness is omnipresent asking only for that which descends blessings upon the world.
She is the function of connection between SOMA and KAMESHVARA although some disciplines convey her to occupy her own chakra entirely.
CHAKRA BODIES – KAMESHVARA:
The KAMESHVARA CHAKRA is located just above the spot where KAMADHENU resides. In tantric yoga it is called the A-KA-THA-Triangle and is formed be the 3 NADIS: The vamp, jyeshtha and raudri nadis. (Prana the vital energy flows through these energy channels called Nadis. They transport Pranic energy through both subtle and physical body. There are 72,000 Nadis in human body.) These same nadis form a triangle in the MULADHARA chakra. It enfolds a version of Shakti and Shiva.
The term shakti refers to multiple ideas. Its general definition is dynamic energy that is responsible for creation, maintenance, and destruction of the universe. It is identified as female energy because shakti is responsible for creation, as mothers are responsible for birth.
Shiva without Shakti is likened to a corpse (shava), for they represent two inseparable principles and the union of energy (Shakti) with being (Shiva) is one of the Tantric ways to ultimate knowledge.
The union of KAMESHVARA (handsome male god) embracing KAMESHVARI (the most beautiful of women) is known as expanded consciousness and detachment.
