  • Characteristics:

    • This chakra has 4 petals and grants the following qualities to a human being: Innocence, Wisdom, Purity, Chastity

    • "Mool" means “root” and "Adhar" means “support”. Thus, Mooladhar chakra = support of the root, the Kundalini.

    • It lies below the Kundalini, below the Sacrum bone, and manifests the Pelvic plexus within us, inclusive of sex activity.

    • This chakra does not play any role in the piercing the fontanelle bone area (self-realization). It just lies dormant, looking after the protocol of the Kundalini. 

    • On this chakra resides the deity of Shri Ganesha, who is the embodiment of innocence (for this entire universe, not just for any specific religion). 

    • Shri Ganesha incarnated on this earth as Jesus Christ.

    • Mooladhara chakra is made of – Carbon atoms because it is made of the earth element.

      • Carbon is made by mother earth and has four valences, with four hands just like a Ganesha. 

      • That is the quality that is given to Carbon by God - that is its dharma.

      • Every element has got a different property (different valency) that is the dharma of every element.

      • Every animal also has got a certain quality, that is the dharma of an animal.

      • Human beings also have some sustaining qualities which are 10 in number and must be maintained through the 10 laws (10 commandments). These are in the Void area.

  • Physical problems due to problems in Mooladhara Chakra: 

    • In the gross body this chakra controls the following functions. A physical problem in these 2 areas is somewhere or the other linked to imbalance in the Moladhara chakra:

      • Excretion

      • Reproduction

    • All the incurable diseases like muscular degeneration, multiple sclerosis, myelitis, cancer, schizophrenia, AIDS etc. come because of the disturbance in Mooladhara. 

  • How to bring Mooladhara into balance after Self-Realization:

    • Mother Earth is the easiest way to clear/cure the Mooladhara chakra (and the entire left-side in general).

    • Sit on the ground (Earth), put your left hand towards Shri Mataji’s photograph and right hand on Mother Earth, and ask Mother Earth to remove the problems of your Mooladhara. You can also take the mantra of Shri Ganesha or read Ganesha Atharvasheesha.

    • By taking vibrations on the left-hand side, you clear out your Mooladhara in such a manner that the problems of the Mooladhara are solved. This is very important for all human beings.

    • Mother earth clears your Mooladhara and fills you up with holiness and auspiciousness.

    • Try to sit on the ground as much as you can and cleanse it out using the method described above, and meditate.

    • Another way to use the nature is to put your eyes onto the greenery to improve your Ganesha tattwa. When the weather is warm walking barefoot on grass in the morning-time is very helpful.

    • NOTE: If you are not able to sit on the ground, sitting on a chair is fine. Follow the same process by keeping your right hand towards the earth.

  • A human being who has a strong Mooladhara has many qualities and powers. Some of them are that:

    • That person’s Kundalini rises very fast (for achieving self-realization).

    • They don’t insult anybody, hurt anybody, or make anybody sad.

    • They don’t blame other people for their problems.

    • If they see anything wrong, they will fearlessly speak against it (in divine wisdom, not foolishly or blindly).

    • Wherever there is adharma (non-righteousness), just by standing there they can create a change (for example: people like Abraham Lincoln and Mahatma Gandhi).

  • We (human beings) have to become rich in our innocence and holiness, and very powerful, so that we can emit holiness everywhere. This can only be achieved through a strong and healthy Mooladhara Chakra. One should know that innocence can never be destroyed. It is indestructible, though it might be covered with lots of clouds due to perverted human sexual behavior, flirtation, abuse of children by parents etc. Despite all arbitrary abandonment of natural laws, the innocence, the power of Mooladhara, remains, though in a sleeping or a sick state which can be cured and normalized through Kundaini awakening. Innocence is the power that really supports the Kundaini when it is rising and normalizing all the centers.
