Importance of Throat in KC - reference talk this morning 13 Jan 21

Topic starter

Hi
There was a question asked at the end of the morning session on why the throat is important, why the prayers that were read out mentioned the importance of the throat and the heart.
I did some searching and found this in relation to Krishna, is this true? If not pls can you answer for me. Here is a section but there is more in the link....

Throat chakra is an important energy point of expression within our being, closely linked to our heart and soul it acts as a prominent expression of the Creator aspect held within our being. The chakra vibrates naturally at the vibration of truth akin to a well of self-expression and divine sacred wisdom.

Hare Krishna Nuala Mataji. Yes I remember this question specifically as I was the person who asked it. It was a prayer in which the Acharya is praying for Krishna to become manifest in his heart and throat. The heart refers to him developing love for Krishna, while the throat refers to Krishna speaking through him. I hope this helps. Haribol. Bhakta David.

Hi David

Wow, that is great, thanks for asking this question. I'm interested how the throat comes into play in awakening as have some deep rooted conditioning on this level that I'm praying for Krishna to help with. 
May I ask another question throat related, is there any difference doing mantra internally or voice it externally? I'm wondering if this would make any difference to my expression / communication in life?
It is so appreciative you monks asking questions at the end of the talk, as this is another method of shining some wisdom for us devotees, so thank you very much.
Is there a way of us devotees asking questions online? In your service Nuala

The expression issue is in regards to talking about Truth/God/Krishna, it is like a block because I cannot ever talk about something that is so much greater than myself.

Hare Krishna Nuala. Yes, it is recommended to chant Japa loud enough so that it is audible to us. The reason for this is that we are also supposed to hear ourself chant the Maha Mantra. Their may be some who may chant solely internally with the mind, however this happens at an advanced stage and therefor one is recommended to chant audible enough for them to hear themselves. Presently we have not been answering or receiving online questions during the morning program. This however is a very good idea so i will look into it to see if this is possible. This block may be due to humility or it also may be due to conditioning. I know in general society today spiritual topics are not openly discussed and people will usually feel uncomfortable to discuss these matters. This is because the souls in this material world have a deep conditioning of envy towards the Supreme Lord even though they might not be conscious of it. The conditioned living entity as stated by Srila Prabhupada has a psychology of being the enjoyer and the proprietor, however Krishna is the true enjoyer and proprietor. The conditioned souls are therefore trying to lord it over the material nature. Due to this one may experience strong reactions from others when speaking about spiritual subject matters as it is a subject matter which can caused strong defensive reactions from individuals who are still very much attached to idea of being the enjoyer and the propietor. For this reason it may be perfectly fitting not to speak about Krishna in certain situations as it may cause strong reactions from others. I believe as long as you have the idea of Krishna being superior without any envy then there is nothing to be concerned about. Thanks. Haribol.

Hare Krishna Nuala. Starting tomorrow there will be a zoom class for the regular morning class. These zoom classes will take place from Fridays to Sundays and there will be the option to join the zoom group and ask questions via zoom. Haribol.
