The study of the correspondence of the endocrine glands and the vrttis in the chakras, including how they influence each other.
The mental images, desires, samskaras etc. waiting expression via the vrttis and the indriyas creates disturbances in the mind and body. This is reflected as imbalances and disturbances of the hormone secreting glands. These imbalances in turn are felt in the mind.
Asanas, or yoga postures, are designed to apply pressure on the various glands in order to balance the secretion of their hormones. In this way it is possible to bring balance to the physical and crude mental bodies, bringing the vrttis under control and calming the mind for deeper mediation.
