KUMARI SWETA, UMA PANDEY, H.H. AWASTHI, AMRIT GODBOLE.

Abstract
Introduction: First documented description of Cakra was found in worlds oldest scripture Atharvaveda. Atharvaveda advocates presence of Astacakra and Navadvara in Purush. Cakras are the centre of Pranika energy present in the body, within the auric field. These are actually the centre of energy that is located throughout the body. They provide a way for energy to enter and exit our body and help to regulate all type of energy flow i.e. physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Our body has seven major and many minor Cakras. These seven Cakras are situated from base of spine to the top of head and each has specific functions. Among these the first-most basal Cakra is named as Muladhara Cakra.

Material and Methods: Various ancient literatures (Vedas and Upanishada) Yogic & Tantric Literatures and modern literatures

Observations and Results: In this review all the literatures related to Muladhara Cakra started from Vedic to latest available literatures have been collected to cover up anatomical, physiological, and spiritual aspects. A possible effort has been made to correlate various components of Muladhara Cakra with Inferior hypogastric plexus. Author tried to establish importance of Muladhara Cakra as the mainstay of basic essentialities of life.

Conclusion: Researcher has tried to explore, review, discuss and correlates here. More studies can be done in this aspect of Muladhara Cakra to prove the concepts of ancient Acharyas on objective parameters but certainly it will add new dimensions to the researches in the field of Ayurveda.

Key words: Atharvaveda; Bija; Inferior hypogastric plexus; Kundalini; Muladhara Cakra; Root Cakra
