The concept of Chakra is an essential part of the Hindu religion. Chakras are the physical energy centers in our bodies. According to the philosophy of the 7 chakras, these seven points in our body are very crucial. If we lack the function in any of these chakras, we won’t be able to live a normal life. The philosophy and the concept of chakras are very old.
According to the ancient text, a Chakra is like a wheel or a point in our body. Each chakra has a different kind of energy and has a different action as well. The location of a chakra in our body is associated with the body part where it is placed. For that reason, we start from the bottom and move towards the top while categorizing the chakra.
