Granthis — Knots in the Body/Mind Mechanism #180
The Sanskrit word, “granthi,” signifies blockages that occur at all levels of the embodied soul’s psycho/physical being. This has usually to do with not having ones prana purified and accessible, and there are many reasons for this shortcoming — impure food, poor eating habits, laziness, karmas from past lifetimes, bad upbringing, etc. The wisdom chart here goes about listing the main impediments that cause such blockages to occur, so that the soul desirous of freedom can resolve to change their habits, find a guru, receive instructions, and move forward to the goal of human existence — enlightenment of all levels of being.
