What is the origin of the name Panchase?
Panchase refers to the five seats occupied by the divine mother. The word panch means five. It is derived from the root word Asana yoga (physical posture) and represents the feminine principle in yoga. There is an ancient yoga system in which a person experiences five different levels of existence, and the number five represents that idea. In this symbol, there are three levels of manifestation – thinking, feeling, and sensing. These three levels of manifestation are completed by the levels above and below. Panchase is considered by the ancient Vedics to be one of the most sacred places for meditation.
