“One can speak of the chakras only in reference to Yoga. In ordinary people the chakras are not open, it is only when they do sadhana that they open. For the chakras are the centres of the inner consciousness and belong organically to the subtle body. So much as is active in ordinary people is very little—for in them it is the outer consciousness that is active.” (CWSA Vol 28, 231)
In this upcoming webinar, Dr. Sumitra Basu will explain the chakras in relation to the planes of being-consciousness and their role in Integral Yoga.
