Buy this CD at:The chakras are psychic power centres in the subtle body revealed by the great yogis of India. Imbalances in the chakras caused by stress, wrong thinking and trauma, lead to obstruction in flow of psychic energy. Cleaning up of the Moolaadhaara, the root chakra at the base of the spine, gives health, wealth, zest for life, sexual fulfillment, and happiness. Listening with a quiet mind to raga Bilawal, as played in this album, balances the chakra and facilitates smooth energy flow and cures many ailments. The Moolaadhaara is the pivot of material life, represents the element earth and roots the subtle spiritual consciousness in the world. Its health signifies a firm anchoring in the physical world. The raga is essayed as spiritual contemplation by Pandit Pandurang Parate, a respected sitarist of the Tanras gharana. ** Pandit Pandurang Parate (born 1946) is a noted sitar and surbahar player.
