Root Chakra

The Root Chakra

Muladhara. The first and lowest of the chakras or centers is situated at the base of the spinal column, about midway between the anal orifice and the genital organs. Four red petals (nadias) emanate from it. In the center is a yellow square, which is the earth element. Within the square appears an inverted triangle that encloses the kundalini energy. Kundalini energy has been described as "luminous as lightning, shining in the hollow of this lotus like a chain of brilliant lights."

Ralph Adamson sees the energy of nature as a continuum, and the physical form of life as a translucent vessel. Here, from a particular perspective, he illustrates a parallel between the richness of an ocean sunrise and the power of the kundalini within each of us. We are one with nature, if we only allow ourselves to realize it and experience it.
