Mooladhara Chakra

The first chakra is located at the base of the spine below the sacrum bone and is called muladhara chakra (mula means "root") in this chakra resides the Kundalini. It is represented by the letter "lam".The first chakra is symbolized by a lotus flower with four petals, and its shape is triangular. Its main aspect is 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 This is the chakra which is connected to survival on the material plane. When this chakra is disturbed one has fear about survival. When this chakra is ballenced then one feels that one belongs on the earth, and is connected with its bounty. 

 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.
