Abstract

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that translates as wheel. Essentially, they are energy centres within our subtle anatomy that govern the distribution and flow of prana (energy or life force) through our system.Our body has 7 major and many minor chakras. These 7 chakras are situated from base of spine to the top of head. These are psychic centre of the astral body governing a group of functions. To attain the purpose of the study, 45 students were selected as subjects from Lakshmibai National Institute of Physical Education, Gwalior (M. P.) The age of the subjects ranged between 18 to 25 years. For administration feasibility three intact groups were formed, namely group 1, group 2 and group 3 with each group consisting of fifteen students. The treatment (chakra meditation with beej mantra chanting, chakra meditation with chakra colour, and control group) was randomly allotted among groups. The training duration was five days in a week for total eight weeks. The heart chakra was selected for the study. The criterion measure chosen for testing the chakra in this study was Auramed Biopulsar Reflexograph and the energy readings of heart chakra was recorded in percentage before the training programme (pretest), after 4 and 8 weeks of training programme. To compare the effects of different chakra meditation training and training duration on selected chakra 3 (Training Durations) X 3 (Training Variations) between within factorial ANOVA was used as the statistical technique and the level of significance was set at 0.05. Partial Eta Square was also calculated to see the effect size of treatment. The SPSS-20 software was used for analysis. The findings indicated that the practice of chakra meditation for 8 weeks is sufficient to bring out significant improvement in heart chakra (main effect of training duration). In all the three groups the pattern of improvement in heart chakra is almost similar after 4 and 8 weeks.
