(Amṛta Nāḍī): The energy channel which, according to Ramana Maharshi, rises from the Heart Center (in the middle of the chest one finger-width to the right) to the head. The ascension of energy via this channel supports the mental and psychological activities of the individual, creating a false sense of separateness. The energy of Pure Consciousness rises through amrita nadi, providing the power for the mind instrument to function.
