Can anyone tell me more about chakra meditation?

I’ve been told that most of my chakras are not open at all. I want to try some of the meditation techniques I printed out but with further research I learned that chakra meditation can be dangerous and that there is a difference between the buddhist concept of chakras and the new age one. I was wondering if anyone could give me more information about chakras, what the really are(buddhist as opposed to new age), and opening them. Thank you. 🙂

I can describe it w.r.t raja yoga. here its known as Kundulini. the ancient sages said that the Kundulini is a coiled up power stored in every human being and if we can release that thing, everything happens at our will because every human being is connected to the infinite ocean of power. if you need more info on this you may like to google with keywords like “raja yoga” and “swami vivekananda”. he has described it in the most beautiful and rational way.

I’m not sure about the differences between Buddhist and New Age meditations. I did my own thing. However, a lot of New Age teachings are derived from Buddhist and other Far East practices, so you have that. One book I’d recommend is “Astral Dynamics” by Robert Bruce. It’s more about astral projection, but it goes over a good deal of chakra exercises to help refine your energy control to help you project. Perhaps you could find some answers there. I think scribd.com has an electronic copy you can view for free online. Other than that, I’d recommend starting with the… Read more »
