It is also believed that Muladhara is a subtle abode of the Hindu God, Ganapati. And in the highest revered prayer for Ganapati, the Ganapati Atharvashirsha, it is mentioned that “one who worships Lord Ganapati would easily grasp the concept and realise Brahman”.
Root Chakra 1-Muladhara is considered the foundation of the “energy body”. Yogic systems stress the importance of stabilising this chakra. Kundalini awakening begins here. It is also known as the seat of the “red bindu” or subtle drop, which rises up to the “white bindu” in the head to unite the female and masculine energies, or Shakti and Shiva. It is associated with the element of earth, the sense of smell and the action of excretion. “By meditating thus on Her who shines within the Muladhara Chakra, with the luster of ten million Suns, a man becomes Lord of speech and King among men, and an Adept in all kinds of learning. He becomes ever free from all diseases, and his inmost Spirit becomes full of great gladness. Pure of disposition by his deep and musical words, he serves the foremost of the Devas.” wiki
