Parvathi Padma Dhyana
Feminine Complement to Chakra Dhyana
Grounds & Integrates the Kundalini
Energy with the Body

is the wife of Shiva, a benevolent form
of the Supreme Goddess, the Divine
Padma is Sanskrit for Lotus.
Dhyana is Sanskrit for Meditation.
Hence we could call this the "Divine
Feminine Lotus Meditation". Just as
Parvati is the feminine counterpart to
Shiva, Parvathi Padma Dhyana completes
and provides the Divine Feminine balance
to Chakra Dhyana.
This important complement to Chakra
Dhyana can be found in the book "Sri
Amma Bhagavan Varadeeksha Mala".
It grounds the Kundalini
energy down through the body, healing,
energizing and transforming the body. In
addition to laying in Shavasan (that is
on our backs with
our eyes closed, arms at our sides,
palms facing upward) regular
practice of Parvathi Padma Dhyana can
help us keep the Kundalini and Oneness
Deeksha energies grounded, balanced and
integrated with the physical, emotional
and psychological levels of our being.
If people encounter
difficulties after receiving Kundalini &
Oneness Blessing (Deeksha) energies in
the upper chakras it may be because they
have not grounded and integrated those
energies with their bodies, emotions and
deeper psychological levels of their
being. In this case, Parvathi Padma
Dhyana would be very beneficial!
Thank you Sri Amma!
For detailed instructions
on the practice of Chakra Dhyana
1. After finishing Chakra Dhyana sit with your eyes
closed, spine erect but not rigid, in any position that is
comfortable for you. (If it feels right, you could touch
the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth).
2. Visualize a golden lotus at the Sahasrara (crown
of your head), with a stem going down to the Mooladhara
Chakra at the perineum (base of your body).
3. As you inhale, visualize a golden liquid flowing up
the stem from the Mooladhara towards the lotus in your
4. Hold your breath and visualize the golden energy filling
every petal of the lotus.
5. As you exhale feel the energy coursing down through
every cell in your body (Feel it flood your Heart Chakra,
your lower belly, your hands & your feet).
6. Repeat the cycle at least 7 times.
groups I often use this variation:
The energy can be exhaled all the way
down down through the feet into the
earth, down into the core of the planet
and out to all the sentient beings
living on the earth, turning the entire
world golden. Then one would inhale from
the earth up through the soles of the
feet to the crown (and through the crown
into the heavens) and exhale down from
the crown through the feet into the
earth. This is very powerful, uniting
heaven and earth and bringing healing
and transformation to the planet and to
all living creatures on the earth.
Variants of this
"grounding principle" can also be found
in Taoist breathing exercises like the
Microcosmic Orbit and the Macrocosmic
Orbit. In my experience, practicing
these energy pathways almost immediately
eliminates any difficulties encountered
as a result of ungrounded and
un-integrated energies the upper
