Energy Lines


There is no set rule that energy lines run exactly as mentioned below. Therefore, please take them with a pinch of salt. They are based on Asokananda's teachings.

  • There are ten major lines: Sen Sumana, Sen Ittha, Sen Pingala, Sen Kalathari, Sen Sahatsarangsi, Sen Thawari, Sen Lawusang, Sen Ulangka, Sen Nanthakrawat, Sen Khitchanna

  • The lines are invisible. They are invisibly connected to send sensation when pressing at the right pressure points to the corresponding directions.

1. Sen Sumana:  

It starts at the tip of the tongue. It is a central line  and loops around the body. This pathway resembles the Sushumna Nadi in the yogic tradition. All Chakras are located on this Line.

Indications: Works with Sense of taste and smell. Is related to  digestive issues, abdominal pain, back pain. It is also used to with relation to chest problem, bronchitis, asthma, spasm of the diaphragm, nausea and cold.   


Therapy Application: Line 3 Inside on the legs, Point 0 of the back of the head. Chest Points in chest massage. Sen Sumana is only working when Sen Ittha/Pingkala are balanced.



2) Sen Ittha and 3) Sen Pingkhala:

They are major lines balancing energy through all Chakras.

          a) Itha: Left channel for  feminine qualities (Lunar), Emotional, feelings, active catalyst for Pingkhala

7) Sen Lawusang (Left side of the body) and 8) Sen Ulanggka (right side of the body):  


This pathway starts in the left ear and travels down the left side of the throat into the chest toward the left nipple. At the nipple, the line turns inward and travels toward the navel, ending above the navel in the solar plexus region.
