Region: Solar plexus
Manipura is the third chakra of our spinal medulla. This chakra of our spinal medulla resides in the Nabhi Sthana (the navel area). The hepatic and splenic plexuses enter into activity when this chakra awakens. Ten yoga nadis emanate from this chakra. The color of this chakra is like a resplendent fire. The tattva Tejas is intimately related with this marvelous chakra. - Kundalini Yoga: The Mysteries of the Fire by Samael Aun Weor
