There are seven chakras or energy centres in the human body through which our vital energy or prana shakti flows. Sometimes, these energy channels get blocked and this leads to illness and disturbances in the body’s natural processes. It is important to understand what each chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely. This is possible when the chakras are balanced.
A fire that has been burning since the first century: Manikarnika Ghat.
It is the only place where the major events of life such as birth and death become a mere play. It is also believed that dying and being cremated in Varanasi would liberate one from the endless cycles of birth and death, and free the soul from the cycle of reincarnation.
Varanasi is a city that holds great significance in Hinduism and is considered one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world.
It’s where people come to die, and Manikarnika Ghat in Kashi is one of the most famous of 84 ghats in the city. According to popular belief, the Manikarnika ghat is a doorway to heaven, and the one cremated on this ghat gets moksha and unites with Lord Shiva. It is also a belief that Lord Shiva has given the blessing of eternal peace to this ghat.
Varanasi, also known as Kashi or Banaras, is regarded as the spiritual capital of India. It is believed that dying here and being cremated on the banks of the sacred Ganges River leads to Moksha, liberation from the cycle of birth and death.
The journey of life and death is intricately woven into the fabric of Varanasi. The city’s ghats, or steps leading to the river, are bustling with activity as people come to bathe in the holy waters, perform rituals, and seek spiritual enlightenment.
