religion,

posted by .

Can someone help me. I've done 4 definitions of terms. But i don't know the last one can someone check what i have and then explain to me the last one. The religion i am studying is Hinduism.

Terms:
Karma-(My answer)The Buddhist's judgment, which determines at death the future state of the deceased. It is also their flat on actions, pronouncing them to be meritorious or otherwise.

Reincarnation-(My answer)the belief that the soul, upon death of the body, comes back to earth in another body or form.

Yoga-(My answer)a school of Hindu philosophy advocating and prescribing a course of physical and mental disciplines for attaining liberation from the material world and union of the self with the Supreme Being or ultimate principle.

Guru-is a teacher, or as some suggest a person who "leads others into a learning."

Chakras - ? this is the one I don't know.

Please go to the following site:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chakra

I READ THAT DEFINITION BUT I DON'T UNDERSTAND IT THE ONE IN WIKIPEDIA AND I'VE DONE DIFFERENT DICTIONARIES AS WELL.

The easiest definition I found is that chakras are the "energy centers of the body where body and spirit most strongly connect."

This site has this and other definitions.

Thank you for your help the way that i read it in dictionaries even in the dictionary ecarta didn't make sence at all. This class of religion that i 'm taking is very difficult when dealing with different types of religions.
