Everything on the earth
in between and above
Is arising from one effulgent source.
If my thoughts, words and deeds
reflected this complete understanding of unity,
I would be the peace I am seeking in this moment.

- Gayatri Mantra

"Much as anatomy texts describe the architecture of the body through the bones, muscles, and organs, the chakra system describes the architecture of the soul through seven subtle energy centers shining out from our core.  The elegant arrangement and meaning of these centers provides a map for the journey to divine realization and an evolutionary map for our civilization's next awakening.  When you open up these sacred centers within yourself, you awaken the Divine within your own inner temple."  
- Anodea Judith, PhD ( Chakra Yoga) -
