(Viṣṇu Granthi): “The knot of Vishnu,” the second energetic and psychic contraction preventing the free flow of prana (energy) in the human being. Such a knot is seen as a tangle of nadis (energy channels). It is located in anahata chakra. (According to some yogis, it is located at the level of manipura chakra or on sushumna nadi between manipura and anahata chakras). It is associated with emotional attachment, attachment to limited forms of compassion, and doing good deeds. It is the knot that creates the desire to preserve ancient traditions and spiritual orders.
