The very foundation of the occulist devotion seems to be present in the discourse of Shata Chakra (Six wheels or rings).
Five physical elements and one spiritual mind together constitute six wheels in the six centers. Revolving continuously these six wheels are whirling the pure soul in organism form. Thus these wheels are like vehicles, riding which; the organism passes his life, controlled by them.
Muladhara, Swadhishthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddha and Agya. These are the six wheels,among them, Muladhara, Swadhisthana, Manipura, Anahata and Vishuddha are five wheels composed of the five physical elements. Agya Chakra is related to the mind. The mind is like the fire of the soul.By awakening the Kundalini that lies asleep in the depth of Muladhara Chakra, this fire of the soul can be activated and utilised. Hence the foremost duty of the yogi is to awaken Kundalini by any means, and then he must combine the fire of Kundalini with his mind and breath. This combination of fires results into a greater fire. Among them, the mind is the moon, The breath is the sun, and as Kundalini is the power to speak,which is like a fire. When the three powers of the moon, the sun and the fire combine, These result into a greater power.
With its effect, the four letters present on the petals of Muladhara, melt to form four resonances,they then form a continuous resonance, that tries to rise upward in Sushumna nerve through its triangular mouth. Thus, Muladhara Chakras is rendered to zero, and this opening process continues upward, opening all the Chakras present in the way right from Swadhisthana Chakra to the Agya Chakra.
In the end all the fifty letters present in the Chakras from A to Gya, first convert into resonance, then into smaller dots and fuse ultimately into a single dot. This single dot exists as the third eye between the two eyebrows,a little higher than Agya Chakra.
The opening of this third eye is also called as the opening of Agya Chakra. With the opening of Agya Chakra, an organism no longer remains a mere organism, but assumes the form of Shiva. After this,the opening of the seventh Sahasstrar Chakra takes place.
From the occultism angle, the human body has been divided into two parts
Part above the waist.
Part below the waist.
The waist is the dividing line of the body.The upper part of the body is supported by the spine, and it has a contact with the brain also. The brain and the spine house two opposite groups of the nerves. One of them is white in colour, while another is blood red. Our body is a true replica of the universe.
Because of this reason seven Lokas (Worlds) have been imagined to exist in the lower part of the body below the waist. Similarly, seven Chakras have been imagined to exist in the upper part, by which the power of the soul circulates through the brain and the spinal cord. The seven lokas (Worlds) that exist in the Upper part are known as Bhu, Bhuvah, Swah. Tapah, Janah, Mahah and Satyam, also known as the seven Chakras. Thus five Chakras are located in the spinal cord. The sixth Chakra is just below the brain while the seventh Chakra is above the brain. In the seventh Chakra itself is the abode of Shiva and Shakti.
Exact location of all these Chakras in the body are thus :
Muladhara Chakra : It is at the base of the spine, between the anus and the sex organ.
Swadhishthana Chakra: It is above the Muladhara Chakra that is above the sex organs.
Manipura Chakra : Its position is in the navel.
Anahata Chakra : It is in the heart.
Vishuddha Chakra : It is in the base of the throat.
Agya Chakra : It is between the eyebrows.
All the six Chakras are related to the spine. The seventh Chakra is called as Sahastrata Chakra, and is assumed to be the supreme center of the life. The appearance of all these Chakras is found to be like the opened petals of a lotus.
All the five Chakras below the Agya Chakra are related to the five elements viz – the earth, the water, the fire, the air and the ether (sky), whereas the sixth, Agya Chakra represents the life. Apart and separate from these six Chakras is Sahastrar Chakra, which is like a lotus of a thousand petals. Two more Chakras or lotus are also assumed to exist between Agya and Sahastrar Chakras. These are
Thus there are in all nine Chakras or Padmas in the body, that have been divided into three classes from occultism point of view. Starting from the above, the first category is related to the will power. The second category is related to the power of action, while the third category is related to the power of knowledge. Numerous nerve cycles link the Muladhara Chakra to the Sahastrara Chakra. All these nerve cycle control the function of the body.On both the sides of the spine are veins of white and red colour. That keeps the nerve cycles in motion. Between the nerves is the Sushumna nerve, flanked on the left by Ida and on the right by Pingla. Sushumna nerve is the means for the flow of the force called Soul.
