) is a Sanskrit word that translates as "wheel" or"turning." It is a concept and term originating from Hindu texts andused in Hindu practices.Chakra is a concept referring to wheel-like vortices which, accordingto traditional Indian medicine, are believed to exist in the surface of theetheric double of man.
[1]
The Chakras are said to be "force centers" orwhorls of energy permeating, from a point on the physical body, thelayers of the subtle bodies in an ever-increasing fan-shaped formation.Rotating vortices of subtle matter, they are considered the focal pointsfor the reception and transmission of energies.
[2]
Different systemsposit a varying number of chakras; the most well known system in theWest is that of 7 chakras.It is typical for chakras to be depicted as either flower-like orwheel-like. In the former, a specific number of "petals" are shownaround the perimeter of a circle. In the latter, a certain number of spokes divide the circle into segments that make the chakra resemble awheel (or "chakra"). Each chakra possesses a specific number of segments or petals.Texts describing the chakras go back as far as the later Upanishads, forexample the Yoga Kundalini Upanishad.
