A withdrawn yogi is caught amidst his sadhana. Underneath the red and blue striated dhoti, His limbs are locked into padmasana. With his hands resting on the broad-based knees, the sadhaka is in the stance of intense contemplation. His golden-coloured body is giving off the ebullient glow of one steeped in sadhana, in touch with each of one’s chakras. According to ancient hathayogic texts, chakras in one’s body are the points of ascending culmination of one’s primal nadis (a nadi is a quantum of existential being).

This folk art composition depicts the blossoming of the sahasrara chakra, which is situated at the crown of the head. The word ‘sahasrara’ literally means ‘thousand’: the imagery of this chakra, according to the Hathapradipika, comprises a lotus with a thousand jewel-like petals. From the solid-coloured petals of the yogi’s sahasrara chakra to the rudimentary features of His face, this composition bears the hallmark of a quality Madhubani painting.

Note the richly coloured serpents that flank the central seated figure. Figuratively, they arise from His kundalini (the coccygeal seat of energy, dormant in most of us) and motion towards the superiormost chakra of human anatomy. Note how skilfully has this motion been conveyed by the undulations of the serpentine bodies. His long black hair is an indication of the years he has spent in sadhana in order for His kundalini to awaken and traverse to the sahasrara.
