Sacral Chakras


Rohini (GV2), Mrigasira (GV3) and Ardra (GV4) are located at the posterior of the sexual and navel chakras.  The mythologies associated with their respective deities tell a cohesive story about Brahma lusting after Rohini who is shot down by Rudra's arrow of restraint.  In the context of the refinement of pranic energies in the sushumna, this can be read as an allegory about yogic practice of bringing the sexual energy into the navel chakra where it is changed back into vitality that rejuvenates and strengthens the physical body, giving radiance and health through this center.
