Reading this book is like embarking on an  illuminating journey with Daaji where he invites you to delve into the very core of your consciousness, guiding you along the deep path that connects with your highest self through the transformative practices of Heartfulness meditation and guided chakra exercises.

Traditionally, when we contemplate well-being, our focus tends to gravitate toward the nurturing of our physical and mental health often neglecting a pursuit of serenity, purpose, and connectivity in our existence. However, Daaji sheds light on this frequently disregarded facet, the third dimension of our well-being that he calls : The Spiritual Anatomy.

The Expanded Chakras

In this book, the chakras emerge as pivotal waypoints in the cartography of consciousness, serving as the spiritual energy centers that constitute our spiritual anatomy. These energy centers control our hearts, our actions, and the sustainable wellspring of joy and meaning we ardently seek. Within this spiritual odyssey, readers will learn:

– The pivotal role and significance of the chakras
– Insights into the obstacles that impede our chakras and the means to purify them
– Meditation methodologies that draw one closer to the heart’s sanctum
– The profound impact of connecting with our chakras on our hearts, minds, and souls
