Hara

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Breath [..] reaches to the inside {of the abdomen}. The Hara is the center […]”

“According to the Karlfried Durckheim Hara: The Vital Centre of Men, ´Hara implies for the Japanese all that he considers essential to men´s character and destiny. Hara is the center of the human body. It is at the same time the center in a spiritual sense or, to be more accurate, a nature given spiritual sense.´”

“Traditionally then for the Japanese, hara, the belly, meant strenght, maturity and a tranquil mind.”
