Central channel, (rtsa dbu ma), avadhuti. The central subtle channel within the body, running from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. (RY)

Vajra body endowed with the six elements. The six outer elements are the five elements and the element of mental objects (chos khams). The six inner elements are flesh, blood, warmth, breath, vacuities and the all-ground consciousness. The six secret elements are the nadis as the stable earth element, the syllable HANG at the crown of the head as the liquid water element, the A-stroke at the navel center as the warm fire element, the life-prana (srog gi rlung) as the moving wind element, the avadhuti as the void space element, and the all-ground wisdom as the cognizant wisdom element. This last category is the uncommon explanation. (RY)
