!! Jai Shri Mataji!!
Mooladhar is the pelvic plexus, as described in medical terminology.
“This centre was created first, at the very outset of creation of Kundalini in the Virata, to bestow on it the only Son of Adi Shakti, Shri
Ganesha. Mooladhara Chakra means the centre, which is the support of the root of the Creation.
As human beings are created in the image of God (Virata) this centre is also expressed first in every human being. Shri Ganesha, who is
manifested in this chakra, is the symbol of eternal childhood.
The Mooladhara Chakra is placed in the lowest region of the trunk of human beings about one inch above the centre of the ‘seat’. This most vital and important centre is in a subtle form. The gross expression of this centre is the pelvic plexus, as described in medical terminology. The plexus surrounds the subtle centre. The swastika represents the four dimensions of awareness and the meeting point in the fifth dimension, which moves diagonally ascending above the clockwise and anticlockwise movements of the chakra.
Pranava is transformed into the ocean of holiness by Shri Ganesha. The waves spread along the petals of the Mooladhara Chakra. A person, who is much higher, in the state of God realization, has a very evolved formation of its pattern. In such personalities, the Mooladhara Chakra acts like a very highly evolved living organism.
The petals of the chakra have arrow-like lines, which appear as small ripples. Gradually they grow with the purity, i.e. identifying with the sense of dignity of chastity of the seeker in many lives. These arrow-like patterns catch in their folds the all-pervading Power that flows down from the top of the head of a realized soul as grace. Such a person may not be an artist but he will enjoy art because of his absolute aesthetic values. They form a network of catchments in four directions. The analysis is done by Shri Ganesha. The petal which is pointing downwards has three such arrows. By the first one it expresses the harmony the seeker enjoys. By the second one is expressed the sense of balance. By the third arrow it expresses the sensitivity of the subject to innocence. He becomes so virtuous that he abhors sinful acts and exhibitions. All these three are developed fully by the complete dedication, innocence and chastity of the seeker to Shri Ganesha. The subject, through the grace of Shri Ganesha, which is awakened and steadied, achieves ascendance by doing proper self-cultivating penance. This penance is done under the guidance of a Guru after realization. It is as if all the patterns get threaded together. By this new achievement the seeker can feel as if he is identified with the Joy of Creation.
The second petal, which is facing towards the left hand side, also has three patterns of waves. By the first wave one achieves the complete mastery over evil enticement. The temptations within ones self are overcome by the second ripple, which suggests that the seeker can expel the spirits who are outside his personality or hovering over other fellow beings. The third ripple when developed, gives one the power of spontaneous victory, overpowering the spirits hovering on other people. Merely the sight of such a subject would make the possessed person shake. When these are threaded into one integrated manifestation, one feels the complete glory of one’s own majesty and divinity and its effects are evident in the humble, confident personality of a very powerful identity.
The third petal, facing to the right side, has also the growth of three patterns of ripples, appearing one after another. By the first, a person develops humility to God (Shraddha), by the second, develops wisdom, and by the third, becomes one with knowledge. When all these three are threaded together into one integrated expression or manifestation, one feels the all-implicit, witnessing experience of awareness. The knowledge of inner being and all that is unknown becomes known as if the seeker enters the library of knowledge: whatever he wants to know he has just to turn his attention to that subject.
The petal that is facing upwards has also three patterns as waves. The first one gives the seeker fearlessness because of the essence of security caught by the fold. The second one makes the seeker aware of the collective consciousness, and the third one grants power of Dharma. When fully developed, the subject assumes the complete identification with the sustenance (re1igion) within. All these, when threaded together, give you a dynamic personality, by which the seeker experiences the nectar of existence (Amrita). He never commits sin. Whatever may appear wrong to ignorant people, his every movement and doing adds to the universal music of love.
This subtle centre (chakra) is the root of all the subtle centres. It is placed outside the spinal chord to emit, through Shri Ganesha, the Divine Power of Holiness and sublimity (Pranava) in its pure and integrated form in the Void. Another function of this chakra is to record everything that is happening in the Void (Bhavasagara). The recorded events and problems are communicated to the Mother Kundalini. Here they go on accumulating as karmas and when the subject dies, he is born again according to his karmas. Shri Ganesha, as corrector, guides the subject by sending symbols in dreams.
The realized personalities have to ascend gradually in their surrender to the innocence of Shri Ganesha. The people who are simple, chaste
like small children, achieve very quickly spontaneous salvation (Sahaja Yoga).
Shri Ganesha looks after the protocol of His Divine Mother. He is very forgiving but cannot at all tolerate anything against His Mother. He enters into the human intellect and imbibes the qualities of reverence. He gives the Light of Wisdom to the egotistical intellectuals when they bow to His innocence. He enters into the superego when He is prayed to by the people who are conditioned and are suppressed. He kills the demons or evil forces that are overpowering the seekers. He has an army of angels and evolved sages. He is respected and worshipped by all the gods, and His own Mother, Adi Shakti, worships Him, as He is the highest.
Adi Shakti is the Power of God Almighty (Parameshwara), but Her Power is Shri Ganesha. He resides as Unconscious, and after Self- realization as awareness (Pranava), in every particle of Her Creation, which is expressed in His four dimensions. His symbol is the swastika, which rotates in the clockwise manner while creating, and while destroying, moves anticlockwise. While evolving it is equal and opposite in force, giving steadiness. The four arms of the swastika are like His four arms, which are carrying the symbolic weapons and accessories at their ends. In the life of Jesus Christ, the swastika is symbolized as a cross. Actually, the cross is the swastika, which is manifested (Vyakta). The crossing point is higher, because Christ came at a point when Creation was at a higher point of evolution and the human beings were born with greater awareness.”
