‘Sapta Chakra’ or ‘Seven Chakras’ are the wheels of energy that placed into seven different points in our spinal section. The details of seven chakras in human body are mentioned in Hindu sacred texts as well. In Hinduism, people used to practice these chakras while meditation. All these seven chakras (circle or wheel) are connected to different organs and glands of our body.
Chakras are responsible for your mental and physical health and distribute energy to the body, which is called “Qi” or “Prana”. They ensure the balance between mind, body, and health and also maintain the harmonious flow of energy in the body. If anyhow they get obstructed or damaged, then our mental, physical and emotional health will be affected.
