    To me, chakras are a laughable concept, and about as silly as crystals, ghosts, or Bigfoot. Chakras, as they are traditionally understood, aren't glands, but some kind of energy centers in the body.

    What I think you're talking about is this.

    Chakras and their importance are posited to reside in the psyche. However, there are those who believe that chakras have a physical manifestation as well.

    So, as usually happens, some people are trying to reconcile religion with science. Predictably,

    These associations remain speculative, however, and have yet to be empirically validated.

      @hallucigenia -

      Fair does. Considering the audacity of my original comment ("read up on the science before making judgement" - whatever I wrote which I deleted in embarrassment) I think I've fallen victim to thinking I knew more about the subject than I do! I think I'm on poor form today...my apologies D:
