Week 1 – Innocence: Mooladhara Chakra

10-week online course on Sahaja Yoga Meditation

“Kundalini is the Pure Desire within us, that manifests or is awakened to give us our self-realization. Means the desire is only fulfilled when you get your self-realization, otherwise it is not manifested – it is just dormant; it is still residual. It has created the whole universe, but until and unless you get self-realization, unless and until you become one with your spirit, you have not achieved the manifestation of this power, which will go on making you run and run and run, thinking that you have not yet achieved or you have not found out your meaning.”

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi

Follow-up session on Mooladhara chakra


The Mooladhara is the first center in our subtle system and is where our left channel begins, lying in the pelvic plexus, below the Kundalini. The fundamental quality of the central Mooladhara chakra is innocence, or action without motive or desire for gross personal gain, as witnessed in babies and young children. With this innocence comes an innate wisdom which, if left undisturbed, develops into a balanced set of priorities in an adult.

Thus, when this center is clear and healthy, we can naturally sense what is that right path for us, removing the need to analyse or question our decisions and allowing us to enjoy freely. By awakening the qualities of the Mooladhara, we can learn again to become more innocent beings, to bring joy to those around us, and to establish the discrimination to make wise decisions.

“But the light of innocence is the light by which you know that love is the highest thing.”
