Sri Chakra
« on: February 08, 2009, 12:25:36 PM »
A respectable and orthodox gentleman asked about Sri Chakra on
19th April 1937.

Bhagavan Ramana was kind enough to reply.

It has a deep significance.  There are 43 corners with sacred syllables in them.  Its worship is a method for concentration of mind.  The mind is wont to move externally.  It must be checked and turned within. Its habit is to dwell on names and forms, for all external objects possess names and forms.  Such names and forms are made symbolic mental conceptions in order to divert the mind from external objects and make it dwell within itself.  The idols, mantras, yantras are all meant to give food to the mind in its introvert state, so that it may later become capable of being concentrated, after which the superb state is reached automatically.
