The Microcosmic Orbit


The Microcosmic Orbit

The microcosmic orbit showing the yin (descending, in black), and yang (ascending, flame) points.
These can be equated with the chakras of many New Age holistic healing systems
(but less so with the chakras of original Tantra)
diagram from Mantak and Maneewan Chia Awaken Healing Light of the Tao (Healing Tao Books, 1993), p.170.
