human being has a constant aura, also known as "teja"
around him,which is in continuous motion, flickering throughout
the body. The aura is reflected due to the activity of the
insides of our mind, its particularly strong around people
with great wisdom and exceptional qualities,and a single glance
at them gives peace of mind. However this radiating aura can
be viewed bypsychics and interpreted in many ways.
The aura is affected by our
emotional,physical,mental condition. For example, the aura
of a person with an illness lightens but that of a healthy
person is very strong. Similarly when we are in a dejected
mood the aura lightens but in happiness it grows stronger.
The aura is divided into three subparts. The outermost is
the etheric layer,which is energised by the energy coming
from outside the earth and its atmosphere. It is our life
force and the total being depends on it. When we interact
with people this part of the aura is reflected to them and
to all the people around us. This is "prana", our
life sustaining force. Any work done on the surface of our
body affects this part of the aura. Application of scents,creams,oils
and lotions strenghthens it.
The asral layer is the middle
layer of the aura. As the name suggests this part is related
to stars. Through the energy in this field we are able to
interpret the happenings around us and hence lookout for ways
to gain energy from them. The astral layer is gravely affected
by our emotional condition. Regardless of the physical body
a person's thoughts and feelings are reflected to others through
this portion of the aura.
The innermost layer is the
Soul. This is the basic life force which is not affected by
any physical, emotional or mental condition. It cannot be
harmed by any hazard or injury. However it completely depends
upon a persons transcendental abilities. Its the storngest
of all the three layers
The system of chakras was developed by our ancient sages who
were expert tantriks. The word "chakra" means wheel.There
are seven chakras effecting the human body. These chakras
effect us at both mental as well as physical levels. The chakras
are present outside our body and are said to be the site of
thought process and such related changes. They are also responsible
for the appropriate functioning of our endocrine glands. The
chakras also affect psychosomatic changes in a person, for
example in a state of excitement or fear the functioning of
the liver and thyroid gland is disturbed, leading to intense
changes in th body. The chakras are the junctions of energy
flow from one body to another.
The activity of our body depends
upon the harmony and balance between the chakras.If totally
balanced they provide the individual with vigor and health.

try to discipline ourself energy, the chakras glow and radiate
light. However if we are dejected the chakras become dim and
