Manipura translates from Sanskrit as "city of jewels" or "lustrous gem". Associated with fire and the power of transformation, it is said to govern digestion and metabolism as the home of Agni and the vital wind Samana Vayu. In a balanced body, the energies of Prana Vayu and Apana Vayu (inward and outward flowing energy) meet here. The third chakra is often associated with the colors yellow, blue in classical tantra, or red in the Nath tradition.
