This yoga poster created especially for
teaching is based on the Solar
Plane painting by Pieter Weltevrede, that is also
available as a poster without texts.
In the sixth chakra person, a balance
is established between the male, solar principle and the
female, lunar principle. Male energies focus on construction,
defense, ruling, art, literature, physical yogic excercises,...
and are electric in nature. As long as one identifies with
either male or female energies, one cannot accept one's
true dual nature. The task is to identify with the witness
consciousness established in the 6th chakra, that is neither
male not female. Balancing of the Ida (Lunar) and Pingala
(Solar) nadis offers a practical technique to create harmony
between male and female energies. The Yamuna is one of the
3 holy rivers that meet at Prayag-Raj (in Allahabad) and
a goddess that is the daughter of Surya, the Sun god.
