The figure Buddha is for many a symbol of enlightenment and inner development. He is the founder of Buddhism. The basis of Buddhist teaching is to create a path through which you suffer less from life, such as from your desires. You achieve this "enlightenment" by learning, meditating and dealing with others in a responsible manner.
Buddha was born as Siddharta Gautama. He was a prince and lived a luxurious, protected life in his palace. Eventually he went out into the wide world, meditating under a tree to enlightenment. From that moment on, Siddharta Gautama was called "Buddha", which means "he who has awakened".
The 7 chakras and yoga
Creating peace as in Buddhism is also well suited to yoga and the teaching of the 7 chakras. Chakra means "wheel" in Sanskrit. Each wheel is an energy hub in our body. These energy nodes must all be able to flow to feel good. Yoga and healthy, stress-free living can help with this. During yoga you meditate in all kinds of postures. Through that you stimulate your chakras.
Each chakra represents a mental, spiritual and physical part of us. The 7 chakras we encounter most are:
Root chakra (red): safety, orientation
Sacral chakra (orange): sexuality and creativity
Solar plexus chakra (yellow): energy, joy
Heart chakra (pink or green): love for others, self-love, kindness.
Throat chakra (light blue): being able to express yourself
Third eye chakra (indigo blue): knowing, understanding
Crown chakra (purple): being able to see completely, she involved
