Dasama Dwara – The Tenth Door in Human Body in Hindu Tradition

Dasama means tenth and Dwara means Door –thus Dasama Dwara is the tenth door. As per Hindu tradition there are ten doors in a human body. But most people are only aware of nine doors (navadwarapura as mentioned in Bhagavad Gita) – the two eyes, two nostrils, mouth, two ears, the anus, and the opening of the generative organ and for urination. The tenth door is in the skull and this remains closed in most persons.

The tenth door is also known as Brahma Randhara or Vhdrti. It is also known as Brahma Dwara in the Shat-chakra-nirupana

Dasama Dwara is mentioned in the Katha Upanishad (II:3:16). It is said that there are one hundred and one channels (nadis) of the heart. Of these one channel pierces the skull leading outwards. The soul that goes out through the Dasama Dwara attains moksha.

It is said that when the Kundalini power is aroused by the practice of yoga, the aroused Kundalini power opens up the path to Dasama Dwara and one attains moksha through it.
