Great article. Essential reading for everyone who works with chakras, thinks about them, or imagines they actually might have them - as well as those who have heard of them but don't understand what they are.
(Note: Based on this article, I'd suggest that most of us don't understand what they really are! [confused] [cool][wink])

Exactly, most westerners interested in this subject have been brainwashed by poorly written, poorly researched books on this subject. Wallis's insights are spot on, because he reads/writes sanskrit, which Judith does not. Her entire career involving chakra books, relies on a child molester whose own organization (Theosophical Society) rejected his book on the chakras. Blavatsky openly condemned his book, but Judith picks it up, and turns it into a cash register. Her associates have tried to downplay Wallis's contribution on this subject, time and time again, because it does not jive with her reckless research. Ramesh Bjonnes, who also reads sanskrit, and has written books on yoga, confirms Wallis's research. Trul Khor, which is a form of yoga, by all historical accounts, older than the Vedic system, lines up with the oldest Vedic writings completely. It has a 5 chakra system based on the 5 Elements, just like the oldest Vedic system. Over time, the Vedic system adopted additional commentaries, but the Trul Khor system has never changed from 5 to this day. Listen, if you want to believe in a system that falls outside conventional wisdom, and relies on opinion over fact, go for it; but don't tell me to believe your hyperbole.

Mitch, I assume you are referring to C.W. Leadbeater and his book The Chakras.
