Reading: Chakras in the Modern World

I recently found this little e-book which is delight to read, especially for those who want to learn a little more about chakras. As a foreword though, I’d like to say that although I am a yoga teacher, I am not a chakra expert, neither am I proficient in ‘healing’ or ‘opening’ up others chakras. I know what I learnt and if something happens for a student then great. The chakras, the ida, pingala and sushumna are intricate and detailed studies, which even this little booklet cannot cover.

However, this  e-book, designed by Ghergich & Co for NorthWest Pharmacy, is really a neat wrap-up of the chakras. The book gives details on each chakra, its colour, mantra and symbol. The book looks into where each chakra is located, what the Sanskrit word means and effects of the imbalance of the chakra (I think a pretty useful tool).

It then explains how to open each chakra. While it might be semantics for some, I would have preferred the phrasing “assisting the opening of the chakra”, rather than just “opening” because the opening of a chakra should be received. But that is just me.
