human being has a constant aura, also known as "teja"
around him,which is in continuous motion, flickering throughout
the body. The aura is reflected due to the activity of the insides
of our mind, its particularly strong around people with great wisdom
and exceptional qualities,and a single glance at them gives peace
of mind. However this radiating aura can be viewed bypsychics and
interpreted in many ways.
The aura is affected by our emotional,physical,mental
condition. For example, the aura of a person with an illness lightens
but that of a healthy person is very strong. Similarly when we are
in a dejected mood the aura lightens but in happiness it grows stronger.
The aura is divided into three subparts. The outermost is the etheric
layer,which is energised by the energy coming from outside the earth
and its atmosphere. It is our life force and the total being depends
on it. When we interact with people this part of the aura is reflected
to them and to all the people around us. This is "prana",
our life sustaining force. Any work done on the surface of our body
affects this part of the aura. Application of scents,creams,oils
and lotions strenghthens it.
The asral layer is the middle layer
of the aura. As the name suggests this part is related to stars.
Through the energy in this field we are able to interpret the happenings
around us and hence lookout for ways to gain energy from them. The
astral layer is gravely affected by our emotional condition. Regardless
of the physical body a person's thoughts and feelings are reflected
to others through this portion of the aura.
The innermost layer is the Soul.
This is the basic life force which is not affected by any physical,
emotional or mental condition. It cannot be harmed by any hazard
or injury. However it completely depends upon a persons transcendental
abilities. Its the storngest of all the three layers
The system of chakras was developed by our ancient sages who were
expert tantriks. The word "chakra" means wheel.There are
seven chakras effecting the human body. These chakras effect us
at both mental as well as physical levels. The chakras are present
outside our body and are said to be the site of thought process
and such related changes. They are also responsible for the appropriate
functioning of our endocrine glands. The chakras also affect psychosomatic
changes in a person, for example in a state of excitement or fear
the functioning of the liver and thyroid gland is disturbed, leading
to intense changes in th body. The chakras are the junctions of
energy flow from one body to another.
The activity of our body depends upon
the harmony and balance between the chakras.If totally balanced
they provide the individual with vigor and health.
The chakras are present in various forms. If we meditate and try
to discipline ourself energy, the chakras glow and radiate light.
However if we are dejected the chakras become dim and dull.
