Manipura (lustrous gem)
In the practice of kundalini yoga (which I love!), we sometimes do the yoga set for a specific energy center of the body. So I've explored a couple of different series of paintings depicting the sanskrit symbol of each chakra. In this series I have been working with the color of that energy center. I also love the true meaning of each sanskrit word.
The sanskrit symbol for the third chakra is Manipura, meaning lustrous gem. Located at the solar plexus, the centre for power in the body, the sense of this chakra, is will power, commitment, focus & action.
The original painting is 12"x 12", water mixable oil paints on canvas.
