Title: Mystery of Chakras
Playwright/Producer: Sam Goraya
This is a not-for-profit performance - all proceeds go to support underprivileged artists who often go without life's essentials.

Summary: In Tantric traditions, Chakras are focal points for meditation within the human body where a number of nadis or meridians converge. This is where human beings experience emotional and/or spiritual energy. The energy body is an extraordinarily fluid reality like nonphysical and super-sensuous. Chakras in the lower belly, the heart, and the crown of the head are the three places where human all over the world experience both emotional and spiritual phenomena. In Tantras the complete realisation of the Brahman is achieved by six Chakras in their proper order. The main purpose of any Chakra system is the installation of Mantras and Deity-energies at specific points of the subtle body.

Synopsis: The vital life force (Prana) is the means by which the subtle and the gross bodies in human organism are connected. It activates all of the systems in the body, including the nervous system to help them work together in harmony.

Prana is distributed throughout the body by Nadis (channels of energy). The whole process of spiritual growth is made possible by Prana and Nadis. According to Tantras there are 14 principal Nadis. Of these, Ida, Pingala and Sushumna are considered to be the most important.

In a mystical sense in Tantric yoga there are six major chakras :

  1. Muladhara
  2. Svadhisthana
  3. Manipura
  4. Anahata
  5. Visuddha
  6. Ajna

Chakra meditation’s main purpose is to make the chakra inactive by arousing the upward flow of Kundalini energy through the chakras. The influence of the five elements on the first five chakras is depicted in the illustration of each chakra by the particular shape (Yantra) of that element.


Traditionally, each chakra is seen in the form of a lotus – a circle around the Yantra, surrounded by a particular number of petals. The petals are the seats of mental modifications (Vritties) and connected desires. Mental modifications are a mode of our being and are maintained by sense functioning. All of the Vritties do not work all the time but some Vritti is always occupying the mind. The lotus petals are normally pointing downward, causing energy to flow down, but when the Kundalini Shakti rises, the petals go upward like a blossoming lotus. This upward movement of the petals blocks the downward flow of energy and acts like a lock.

In the chakras, each petal has a seed sound (Bija Mantra) associated with it. The Bija Mantras are sound frequencies used to invoke the divine energy inside the body. The seed sound is the storehouse of divinity in a most concentrated form. Producing seed sound in the correct manner arouses the latent power of the deity. When the divinities are invoked by seed sounds, they are absorbed in the Kundalini as the uncoiled energy that moves upward. The chakras stop working when Kundalini rises and breath is suspended. When breathing begins again, the chakras are reactivated and the game of Prana, the mind, ego, and intellect resumes.


Warnings and Duration: The production contains complex and mature themes and it is approximately 2.5 hours with 20 minutes of interval.

Previously the dance performances by Sam have supported India Vision Foundation

http://www.indiavisionfoundation.org

and last year Sam supported Rudrakshya Foundation Institute of Art and Dance

http://rudrakshyafoundation.org.in/home.html

This year Sam is bringing two Odissi dancers to dance with him from this Rudrakshya Foundation to give them exposure to dance overseas. They are the most honest and simple people but very talented and hoping to make living out of this dance form.
