Vipassanā (Pāli) or vipaśyanā (Sanskrit) literally “special, super (Vi), seeing (Passanā)”, is a Buddhist term that is often translated as “insight”.
The practice of Vipassana involves aadhisthana,
The Sanskrit term adhiṣṭhāna (Sanskrit: अधिष्ठान; Tibetan: བྱིན་རླབས, THL: jinlap; Japanese: 加持 kaji; Thai: อธิษฐาน àtíttǎan) is the name for initiations or blessings in Vajrayana Buddhism. The term has various meanings, including the raised base on which a temple stands.
It is also read as “aadhi” + “sthana” when an individual initiates himself into the practice of Vipassana and aadhisthana, which is sitting steady, motionless, and still in a position for an extended period of time. When an individual is committed to this practice the impurities that have been locked up in the mulaadhara chakra are disturbed they start coming undone internally. Whatever happens inside manifests on the outside in the life of the person practicing Vipassana and aadhisthana. Aadhisthan also implies our original (aadhi), sthana (place).
The mulaadhara chakra is located at the perineum, the space between the anal outlet and the genital organ. This is the lowermost chakra in the body. Mula-adhaar means foundation. The mulaadhara chakra is the foundation of the physical structure and the energy body, it is the foundation of one’s existential and spiritual life.
The physical body of an individual is formed by the sexual energy of two individuals, this is the energy that power’s the cellular union and forms the energy signature of the individual also termed as the pranamaya kosha. If there are distortions in the pranamaya kosha, these will continue to disturb the existential and spiritual life of the individual. Thus, the cleaning of the mulaadhara chakra is the most crucial energy center, unless and until this is balanced and stabilized, the balancing of the upper energy centers is a futile exercise in vain.
Knowing your truth is a basic need that comes from this energy center at the base of your spine. When you are not connected to this place in your body, every lie, big or small, breaks the connection with the real you. Neglecting who you really weakens your true foundation, decreases your essential strength, and leads to fluctuating levels of security.
You have the right to fully show who you are, to match your inner world with the outer. Allow Mulaadhara to teach you how to walk your real path. Your presence is welcome and much needed, in its purest and most honest form.
The practice of Vipassana not only stabilizes one’s mulaadhara chakra but also stabilizes the higher chakras and unveils the truth of our ONENESS spiritually and existentially.
True advancement in Vipassana is marked with dis-association with that which is not aligned with your highest spiritual nature.
It is only after the individual’s mulaadhara chakra is totally balanced and aligned that one realizes that there are no enemies, there are only unstable energy forms emanating from one’s pranamaya kosha!
Vipassana is the most potent internal cleansing sadhana!!
