Nadi

The Sanskrit term Nadi comes from the root Nad wich means "motion". It is a tubular organ of the astral body trough wich the Prana (vital force) flows.
It consists of three layer, one inside the other. The innermost is called Sira, the middle layer Damani, the outer Nadi, like the intire organ.

All the Nadis spring from the Kanda, this is just above the Muladhara Chakra. It is in the juntion where Sushumna Nadi is connected with the Muladhara Chakra . Kanda-Mula, in shape like a bird's egg, is a center of astral body, the root from where all the Nadis spring and carry the Prana.
The body is filled with innumerables Nadis, that cannot to be counted. Nadis are said to be from 72,000 to 3,50,000.

"The subtle lines, Yoga Nadis, have influece in the physical body. All the subtle (Sukshuma) Prana-Nadis and Chakra have gross manifestation and operation in the physical body. The gross nerves and plexus have close relationship with the subtle ones.You should understand this point very well. Since the physical centres have close relationshi with the astral centres, the vibrations that are produced in the phisical centres by prescribed methods, have desired effects in the astral centres."
