The Sanskrit term ‘Nadi’ comes from the root ‘Nad,’ which means motion, flow, or vibration. Just how veins and arteries are important for the healthy functioning of our physical body.
“Nadis are conduits of pranic lifeforce energy. There are thousands of nadis in the body, fourteen of which are considered to be principal and three the Ida, Pingala, and Susumna the most important. Of these three principal nadis,
The Sushumna is the central channel of energy in the human body that runs from the base of the spine to the crown of the head and carries Kundalini energyThe Ida is also described as the Moon and feminine current, while the Pingala is referred to as the Sun -male current.”
To the left of the Susumna is the Ida and to the right is the Pingala. The Ida and Pingala entwine the Susumna from left to right and right to left in the movement upward going around the Chakras ( very similar to the spiraling configuration of the body’s DNA structure). Sushumna nadi only opens and flows freely when Ida and Pingala nadis are balanced and clear, thus the purification of all three nadis are important for the overall health, wellness of the body and mind, and one can also experience spiritual growth.
The Ida, Pingala, and Susumna meet at the 1st Chakra – the Muladhara at the base of the spine and again at the Ajana Chakra, (the 6th chakra) located at the root of the nose between the eyebrows and approximately 2 1/2 inches into the brain. Here at the Ajna Chakra the three nadis form knot and enter the Susumna. They then seperate and proceed into different nostrils.
