Folding manuscript with diagrams of chakras as focal points of energies during Yoga practice 

The principal subject of this folding manuscript is a female deity placed above a male deity. They are decorated with diagrams of meditative chakras and paintings of animals and other subjects. Chakras adorn the stomach and other auspicious ornaments are painted on the legs, arms and foreheads. Each of them is decorated with three other deities. Chakras are regarded as focal points for the reception and transmission of energies. The most popular system distinguishes seven chakras.
