Energy in Buddhism

b. FORMATION OF THE SEVENTY-TWO THOUSAND CHANNELS

There are 72.000 channels (Skt. nadi; Tib. rtsa) in the body that
gradually begin to form at the heart during the gestation period in
the womb. The principal one. which runs like a central shaft in the
body, is called the 'central channel,' the uma (Skt. avadhuti; Tib.
dbu.ma). The channel on the right is called the roma (Skt. rasana;
Tib. ro.ma) and the channel on the left, kyangma (Skt. lalana,
Tib. rkyang.ma). These form at the heart while (the fetus is still] in
the womb.

The other channels that initially form at the heart are the
sumkorma (Tib. sum.skor.ma) channel to the east (front), the
doma (Tib, 'dod.ma) channel to the south (right), the dudralma
(Tib. hdud.bral.ma) channel which is immediately next to the
central channel (a very bad channel because it constricts the other
channels and prevents the energy from flowing freely), the khyima
(Tib. khyim.ma) channel to the west (back), and the turn.mo (Tib.
gtum.mo) to the north (left).

kyangma. as well as the sumkorma of the east and the doma of the
south After that, the dudralmsi. the khyimn and the turn.mo
channels occur simultaneously. These are called (he eight initial
channels at the heart

The channels in the four [cardinal) directions divide into the
four channels of the intermediate directions: the southwest,
northeast, and so forth. Thus, there are the initial four and the
intermediate four, which makes eight Each of these develops a
three-fold branch, which makes 24 branches. If one goes into more
advanced stages of meditation or the body-mandala practice, one
uses these 24 in the meditation K These 24 similarly branch into
three, making 72. Each of the 72 channels divides into a thousand,
making 72.000.

This is the manner in which channels are formed during the
gestation period. If you remember 24. you will be doing quite well.
Even if you cannot remember 24. please do not forget the three
central ones: uraa. roma and kyangma. These you must remember!
Initially, five channels form simultaneously: uma, roma and
kyangma. These you must remember!

c. FORMATION OF THE PRINCIPAL AND SECONDARY ENERGIES

One should know that the energies' or "wind-energies' {Skt. vayu;
Tib. rlung) are at the root of both samsara and nirvana.
It is by
way of the energies that one goes either to liberation and full
enlightenment
or to the lower realms of existence. Apprehension
of any type of object, for example, is made in conjunction with the
energies. Mental distortions such as attachment and anger also
arise in conjunction with energies. The energies and states of
consciousness are very intimately related.

B. CULTIVATING THE STAGE OF COMPLETION

Preliminary Teachings

1. FURTHER CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VAJRA BODY

As explained previously, in order to practice the stage of
completion, it is indispendable to understand the way in which the
channels, energies and drops arise. Within this presentation, one
should, by all means, have a clear understanding of the three
major channels: the central channel, uma, and on its right and left,
the roma and kyangma, respectively.

In the explanation of the stage of completion there are three
bodies: the gross, the subtle and the extremely subtle. Likewise,
one can speak of the gross, the subtle and the extremely subtle
minds. It is especially important to understand the nature of the
very subtle mind because, nowadays, many people say, 'There is
no afterlife; there is only this one life." Such an assertion is
founded upon the assumption that there is no subtle mind It is
true that the gross mind does not carry on after this life. But there
is also the very subtle mind. If one really understands the very
subtle mind and the very subtle energy, which is a very subtle form
of the life-sustaining energy, and their functioning, then one sees
that they have been with us since begtnningless lime and will carry
on without end. By understanding them, one sees the logical basis
for asserting both former and future lives. If future lives were not
to exist, there would not really be any reason to practice Dharma
at all. One could simply lead a hedonistic life.

There are different presentations of the energy-centers
(Skt.cakra; Tib. 'khor.lo). When one speaks of the four, they are:

1) the 'center of great bliss (Skt mahasukha-cakra; Tib.bde.
chen.'khor. lo) situated at the crown of the head;

2) the 'center of enjoyment' (Skt sambhoga-cakra; Tib. longs.
spyod.kyi.'khor.lo) at the throat;

3) the 'center of Dharma' (Skt. dharma cakra; Tib chos.kyi.
'khor.lo) at the heart;

4) the 'center of emanation' (Ski. nirmana cakra; Tib sprul.
pa'i 'khor lo) at the navel.
When presenting five energy centers, in addition to the above
four, one speaks of:

5) the 'bliss-guarding center' (Tib. gsang.gnas.bde skyong.
'khor.lo) which is located at the genital area

Sometimes, there is also a presentation of the six energy centers.

1) The Center of Great Bliss
The center of great bliss at the crown of the head is situated in the
area beneath the top of the skull and just above the brain The
width (of the center) is like a Japanese incense stick, about 1/8 of
an inch or so. It is multi-colored: white, green, red and black. Its
center is triangular in shape. At present, the central channel, uma,
is constricted by two side channels, the roma and the kyangma,
making a knot. These channels branch off into four and into eight,
and so forth, eventually making a total of 32 subsidiary or branch
channels branching off the center of great bliss. In appearance,
this center resembles an open umbrella held aloft.

2) The Center of Enjoyment
This center is situated at the throat, right at the Adam's apple. Its
color is red. The very center of the cakra is round. As above, the
central channel is constricted by the two side channels, making a
knot. The center of enjoyment has 16 branch channels, which
branch out like an inverted umbrella. Clearly keep in mind that
the previous center at the crown is like a right-side-up umbrella,
whereas this throat-center resembles an inverted umbrella. Visualize
them!

3) The Center of Dharma
The center of Dharma is situated at the heart, between the two
breasts, in the chest. It is white in color. The center of this cakra is
triangular in shape and is constricted three times, namely, there
are three knots made by the two parallel side channels. It has only
eight branch or subsidiary channels, which branch out like a
right-side-up umbrella.
Think this over carefully. Get it clearly in mind so you can
visualize it just as has been explained.

4) The Center of Emanation
This center is situated at the same height as the navel itself Like
the one on the crown, the emanation center is multicolored. Its
center is round, while its 64 subsidiary channels branch out like an
inverted umbrella.
So. the umbrella-like center at the navel are facing each other,
just as the ones at the crown and the throat are facing each other.

5) The Bliss-Guarding Center
This center is situated at the genital area or, more precisely, at the
very base or the very root of the genitals. Its center is triangular in
shape and it is red in color. It has 32 subsidiary channels The
energy-center itself is like a right-side-up umbrella.'
One should understand that all of these centers are pierced
through the middle by the central channel, which acts as an axis for
ali them, as the trunk of a tree is the axis for its branches.

Belief systems or how one aligns to a lineage can have an impact on what is real.

Taoist don't have chakra's at all and don't feel them like you would.
