maybe I am wrong, but aren´t the Marmas special points at the human body?
Chakras are in the astral and spiritual bodies.
Marmas are in the physical body, they are the same/similar as chinese meridians and accupressure points
Marmas and chakras exist on different levels. Marmas are energy points that can be accessed through certain areas on the body (much like accupuncture points). They represent end-points of the nadi-s (energy conduits in the body) and can be massaged to increase health and vitality. Chakra-s are much more subtle. They are accessed through the mind rather than through bodily touch, and they represent stages and focal points (usually 7) that include the individual psyche and soul aa well as the individual's energy and thought patterns.

In Yoga we talk about "Koshas", or dimension. A person has a physical dimension (annamaya), an energetic dimension (pranamaya), a mental dimension (manomaya), a deep personality dimension (vygnanamaya) and a spiritual dimension (anandamaya. The Marmas are located in the intersection of bodily and energectic dimensions. The Chakra-s are located in the upper 3 dimensions (mental, deep personality and spiritual).

Das that help? kind regards, Oda
Dear Aditi,

Marmas and Chakras are different.Marmas are vital points in the body and is always have a specific pin point anatomical location whereas the Chakras are broadly located in a particular location.

Chakras are more of functional entity and Marmas are anatomical entities.

In connection with an injury,Marmas produces pain and other specific symptoms on trauma and need treatment.



Love and blessings.

hi aditi.
marmas in ayurveda we called it vital organs like heart,lungs,brain, etc.
marmas plays an important role in our body.

chakras means- there are seven chakras in our body which is-
root- at the base of the spine
the chakras act as valves for energy from consciousness through the endocrine and nervous systems to different parts of the physical body.
i hope now you understand the meaning of marmas and chakras.


HAri Om,

We studied from Ayurvedic Doctors 107 Marma Points are all over the body. Only in the head & neck there is 37 MArma points. There are Vital points. If we hurted here, we will die very soon, or later or it will be very long treatment. The Marma Vaidyas able to use this points for Healing. This treatment is incredible.

Can anyone tell me where i can study, a crash course in Maerma massage either in UK or South India?
HAri Om,

I'm just study that from a very very good indian doctor, who thought before in Haridwar, in India.
He lives in BUdapest.
That course was began in middle of February.
If You are interesting to meet him, just come to Budapest. Next Friday evening he will give a lecture.
Just answer to my e-mail address:

Have a nice evening.
HAri Om,

learning marmas is not a easy thing. marmam means secret. this scientific knowledge has been kept secret for centuries because, it can cause equal amount of negative effect in the body, if wrongly administered. this marmam science was started by a yogic saint called Agathiyar long long ago. There are different types of marmam. one involves just touch, other involves pressure and third one involves vision. finding an expert in marmam is very very difficult. some families in deep interior Kerala, in India, still practice these techniques. but finding the right person is difficult, because there are some fakes who pretend to be experts.
There are Seven chief Divine Power centers in our body that are called "Chakras" and besides there are also 108 very special and important power points situated at different location in our whole body which have been called Marmas in "Veda".

So out of 108 Marmas, 64 are located in the head region only and others are located in the region of neck, back, arms, chest, Thai and so on and these marmas helps one to get his body purified but the question is how to activate these marmas and to activate these itself a very special task and that is pure "TANTRA" and it should be done according to the Vedic way and I can tell you sincerely that books cannot tell you.

Where as Chakras are such Divine Power Centres which help one to get the powers of Nature and that are called Goddess Powers and once it is activated the then its affect can be seen his behaviour. No doubt. But the same question arises as said above.

So relation in between Marmas and Chakras is nothing but a part of spiritual body (Suckchama Sarir) are situated in this material (Sthul Deha) body, So Unless and until you are fully pure with both external and internal body, cannot be able to enter into the activation of Chakras. Our ancient Maharshis and Yogis were able to cure their body through activating these points as they knew this method, technique so called Tantra.

This is true because I have been done it with the help of my Sadguru and that I have got indirect you. Although I have been gone through all Dickcha Sanskar but experienced it my home only and I am continue on the path of my actual target.

Hello Sir,

Thanks in Advance................
Dear Mr. Kumar,

If I am late for responding your query, pls do pardon me but sorry to tell you that to whom you asked this question was making me whether should I reply or not.Any way you tell me why you want to learn this?

It is a path of Sadhana so be sure and do let me know. The process is to get first Dickchha from a Sadguru you believe or a master of such gyana.who can tell you all this or give a mantra sadhana through that you can have such knowledge because gyana can only be received from a real Sadgurdev by following the provided guide lines with complete devotion, faith, love and attentive.

Wish you all the best,

Kriyananda Maharshi Dayananda
