Bij Mantra: Ram
The third chakra is the one that gives us the sense of generosity, complete satisfaction and contentment. It represents expansive consciousness, and the desire for power. The main quality of this center is peace - clearing this chakra can relieve stress and tensions.
When the manipura chakra succumbs to stresses of any kind, the effects are immediately felt both in the physical body and in the emotions.
At physical level this chakra is apparently related to the digestive system, the spleen, the liver, the pancreas and the gall bladder. It is also related to the unconscious mind. While all of the lower chakras are related to 'the emotions' our current emotional state is most strongly manifest in the manipura chakra.
When enlightened by the Kundalini, the Manipura chakra gives us our spiritual ascent, righteousness and inner sense of morality, and complete balance at all levels in our life.
