The third chakra, Manipura Chakra, is motivated by the desire for power. In observing the world from here, it seems to us like a place in which to express power. This chakra invites us to express ourselves as power, energy and will. He who is found situated in this center has a vision of the world from the perspective of power.
While the second chakra relates to pleasure, in the third chakra one becomes capable of self restraint and does not permit enjoyment to lead to vices and addictions. It is very important to develop our will power, not with the object of dominating or controlling others, but to be capable of overcoming our faults and weaknesses. Undoubtedly, strong will power is synonymous with maturity. The Manipura Chakra acts to repress the instincts, in the case of the muladhara, and the desires, in the case of the swadhistana. Obviously repression mentioned here must be accompanied by a deep discrimination and understanding in order to be constructive, as blind repression poisons our spiritual and religious life.
In a society in which to be a controller or to dominate others is the sign of success, it is very easy to develop an imbalance in this energetic center. If this happens, we are willing to make great efforts and sacrifices to obtain the recognition of our peers, even at the cost of the suffering of our friends, loved ones and family members. Our efforts will be motivated by the desire to compete. In an imbalanced chakra, the will power can be either weak or exaggerated. Weak will power is recognizable by the frustration that is produced in us, the feeling that it is impossible to cope. We feel that we live to satisfy the demands of others, under the motto of being a good person. It frustrates us to see ourselves responding affirmatively when we had actually wished to firmly refuse. When possessed of an exaggerated force of will, on the other hand, we see every situation as a challenge to maintain an important position in the ranking and to occupy a position of advantage within the hierarchy, which inevitably converts every project and task into a competition and a battle in which we test our courage.
In the Ramayana we learn that Ravana wished to have Sita for himself, that is to say, he wanted to possess the sakti or the power of God, but without Lord Rama, and thus disconnected from God. Do not try to obtain power, because in a relative world, it is always limited. Do not make efforts to accumulate power, but rather, offer to God any power that you obtain. Use every power that you possess to serve the Lord and help humanity, which is His manifestation. Do not utilize his power to control or manipulate others. True power dwells in our complete surrender to the supreme power, God.
The malfunctioning of this Third Chakra, the Manipura Chakra, manifests as dependency and exaggerated attachment, insecurity, boredom, depression and unjustified sadness, indifference, obstinance, nostalgia for peace, extreme desires for power and the use of force, and unbalanced emotions. At the physiological level, one experiences a lack of flexibility, muscular tension, stomach and digestive problems, and problems with the lower back.
The balanced functioning of this third chakra in one who is situated in it will be manifested as the experience of self esteem, confidence and security in oneself, and the capacity to accept as well as exercise authority.
Moreover, the balanced functioning of the third chakra will manifest as satisfaction in life, motivation, persistence, confidence, concentration, the ability and power to change, the possibility of excelling, firmness, personal acceptance, clarity, lightness, and realization. It manifests as well, in a healthy digestive system.
The deity that presides over the third Manipura Chakra center is Braddha Rudra, whose name means "The Lord of the South". With a silvery beard and seated on a tiger skin, Braddha Rudra represents destruction.
The Sakti of this chakra is Lakini. Dark in complexion, this goddess has three heads, and wears a beautiful yellow sari. Lakini has four hands: in one she holds a thunderbolt, or vajra, in another an arrow that has come from Kama, the God of desire, in another hand she holds fire, and her fourth hand forms the mudra that banishes all fear.
The lamb is the vehicle of Agni, the God of Fire, and fire is the element of the Manipura Chakra. The lamb is also the vehicle which carries the bija of this chakra.
