five chakras (wu mai-lun): It is a term for the centers of subtle or refined energy in the human body. They can be manipulated by the “dharma protecting deities” to allow for the development of supernormal powers. The chakra system in Buddhism developed differently from that practiced by yogis in India. One develops the three “meridians” or channels and five chakras by means of the Mind (Heart) Wind Bright Spots (Point) Dharma and other advanced tantric practice.
