Details

The concept of chakra originates in Hindu texts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindu_texts) and features in tantric (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantra) and yogic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kundalini_Yoga) traditions of Hinduism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hinduism) and Buddhism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vajrayana). Its name derives from the Sanskrit (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanskrit) word for "wheel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheel)" or "turning (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turning)" (cakraṃ चक्रं [ˈtʃəkrə̃] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:IPA_for_Sanskrit), pronounced [ˈtʃəkrə] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:IPA_for_Hindi_and_Urdu) in Hindi; Pali (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pali): cakka चक्क, Thai (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thai_Language): จักระ, Telugu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telugu_Language): చక్రo, Tamil (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tamil_Language): சக்கரம், Kannada (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kannada): ಚಕ್ರ, Chinese (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_language): 轮, Tibetan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tibetan_language): འཁོར་ལོ་; khorlo).[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chakra#cite_note-mahesh-0)

The chakras are believed to be a number of wheel-like vortices (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vortex) which, according to traditional Indian medicine, exist in the surface of the subtle body (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subtle_body) of living beings.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chakra#cite_note-1) The chakras are said to be "force centers" or whorls of energy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_%28esotericism%29) permeating, from a point on the physical body, the layers of the subtle bodies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subtle_bodies) in an ever-increasing fan-shaped formation. Rotating vortices of subtle matter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matter), they are considered focal points for the reception and transmission of energies.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chakra#cite_note-2) Different belief systems posit a varying number of chakras; the best-known system in the West has seven chakras.
