First Chakra (Muladhara)

The first chakra of meditation is also called “Muladhara” and is depicted as “Kashyapa Avatar” of Vishnu in Sanatan Dharma. Mula means, “Root” and Adhaar means “Basis”. This Chakra is situated at the base of spine. All the three psychic channels named Ida, Pingala and Sushumna emerge from the Muladhara. Since this Chakra is located at the base of the spinal cord, it is linked with Anus and Sexual organs of the human.

Miteiya suggests contemplating Kashyapa Avatar of Vishnu or Kassapa Buddha while breathing upon First Chakra. Sanatan Dharma also suggests that Muladhara is the abode of Ganesha. This necessarily means that worshipping Ganesha is symbolic representation of the beginning of internal meditative journey. Indra is the lord of Muladhara suggesting that “Reconciliation with Senses” is paramount before beginning the Saadhna.

The seed mantra for first chakra is “Lam” which depicts “Dakini”, the symbol of “Feminine Powers”. Miteiya says that one should complete entire knowledge before beginning Saadhna. The journey is internal in nature and one would not get any external support once the internal journey is ignited. Please keep in mind that Kashyapa is father of all gods and demons. This necessarily means that your search for gods and demons has to be internal in nature.
