The first chakra is situated below the sacrum bone in which resides the Kundalini, and its main aspect is the innocence. Innocence is the quality by which we experience pure, childlike joy, without the limitations of prejudice or conditionings. Innocence gives us dignity, balance, and a tremendous sense of direction and purpose in life. It is nothing but simplicity, purity and joy.
It is the inner wisdom that is ever present in the little children, and gets sometimes clouded by our modern lifestyles. But it is a quality which exists eternally within us and cannot be destroyed, waiting to be manifest as pure joy when the Kundalini rises.

Bhastrika Pranayama helps to activate dormant Muladhar Chakra because when we inhale the air with full force then the force of that air collides against Muladhar Chakra and it becomes active and sentient.

Bhastrika Pranayama  is a combination of Kapalabhati and Suryabandana, in which 20 to 40 exhalations are made to precede each inhalations.This kriya consists of rapid and successive forcible inhalations and exhalations. To start with ten inhalations and exhalations will do. There after one should breathe in deeply, breathing the air and exhale slowly. Three to four rounds will do. The number of times of inhalations and exhalations of each round should be increased slowly.


Activation of Muladhara chakra results in riddance from tensions, true happiness, beauty, perfect health, physical strength & magnetic personality.
On the other hand inactive or an impure Muladhara Chakra  will make a person a victim of different kinds of diseases such as: Constipation, Blood Hemorrhage, Excretory diseases etc.
