The seven chakras

Chakra [Sanskrit for “wheel,” “disc,” “circle”] is a term used to denote the centers of light anchored in the etheric body and governing the flow of energy to the four lower bodies of man.

There are seven major chakras corresponding to the seven rays, five minor chakras corresponding to the five secret rays, and a total of 144 light centers in the body of man.

Functions of the chakras

Djwal Kul explains the functions of the chakras:

Each of the chakras has a special function, and we shall consider these functions step by step. Each of the wheellike vortices that comprise the chakras has, according to the teachings of the masters of the Himalayas, a certain frequency that is marked by a number of petals, so-called. These petals determine the flow of the energies of God to man, and they govern certain aspects of God’s consciousness, commonly called virtues, which may be amplified within the chakras.

The chakras that are presently operative in the being of man are anchored in the lower etheric body, and their positions conform to the organs in the physical body which receive the flow of vitality from the higher bodies necessary to its functioning. These chakras are located at the base of the spine, over the spleen, over the navel, over the heart, at the throat, on the brow, and at the crown.

The placement of these chakras to correspond with nerve centers in the physical body was adjusted during the epoch of the Fall of Man. There remains, however, in the higher etheric body the line of the seven chakras as forcefields for the seven rays; and these are for the distribution in the four lower bodies of the frequencies of the seven Elohim, known as the seven Spirits of God.[1]

The seven major chakras, their rays, Sanskrit names, and colors are as follows:

Ray Chakra Sanskrit name Color Petals
First ray throat Vishuddha blue 16
Second ray crown Sahasrāra yellow 972
Third ray heart Anāhata pink 12
Fourth ray base of the spine Mūlādhāra white 4
Fifth ray third eye Ajñā green 96
Sixth ray solar plexus Manipūra purple and gold 10
Seventh ray seat of the soul Svādhishthāna violet 6
Eighth ray Secret chamber of the heart Ananda-Kanda between pink and gold, a peach color 8

The hands, feet, and thymus represent the five secret-ray chakras.
