Muladhara is the root chakra and the seat of primal energy, kundalini shakti. In philosophical terms, the concept of muladhara is understood as moola prakriti, the transcendental basis of physical nature. All the objects and forms in this universe must have some basis from which they evolve and to which they return after dissolution. This basis is called moola prakriti, the original source of all evolution. Muladhara, as moola prakriti, is therefore responsible for everything that manifests in the world of name and form.
Where is muladhara located in the human body?
In men, muladhara is located at the perineum, midway between the genital organ and the anus, and about two centimeters inside. In women, it is located at the posterior side of the cervix, midway between the vagina and the uterus. Muladhara is also the location of Brahma granthi, the knot of Brahma. As long as this knot remains intact, the energy located in this area is blocked. Prana shakti awakens the moment this knot is undone.
