Thai Sib Sen – Sen Kalathari

Sen Kalathari, also called the “emotional and psychic line,” or “sychological and spiritual Sen,” is one of the ten Thai Sib Sen or primary Sen Energy Lines as known in Traditional Thai Massage and Thai Yoga Reusi Datton.

It’s also the Energy Line strongly connected to “movement of the limbs.” Sen Kalathari is associated with the Fire and Wind Elements.

As for the connection to organs, Sen Kalathari typically relates to the heart, although many abdominal organs are also associated with this Sen Line.

Other names found for Kalathari are Kaniataree, Kanlataree, Kantaree, Galadhari, or even Gandhari. Interesting fact is that the name Kalathari, notably the last two synonyms, reminds us of Gandhari Nadi, a Yoga Nadi Channel. Depending on how one interprets Gandhari Nadi — especially when taken together with Hastijihva Nadi — there may indeed be similarities.

Nevertheless, when you closely study the locations and trajectories of the fourteen principal Nadis, it rather seems that there’s more resemblance with Varuna Nadi, which like Kalathari “spreads everywhere” and “reaches the entire body.”

Trajectory and Location of Sen Kalathari

In any case, Sen Kalathari starts at the navel and divides into four sections, two on the right, two on the left, and runs on both the front and backside of the body.

The line runs from the navel up to the chest and shoulders, down the middle lines of the arms (second inside line) to the wrists and from there — through branch lines — to the tips of all the fingers on both the left and right side of the body.

Furthermore, it runs from the navel down the mid-line of the inside of the legs (second inside line) and splits into branch lines going under the feet and from there to all the tips of the toes on both the left and right side of the body.

See the image above for the trajectory on the backside of the body (the extension lines), running over outside lines number two of the arms and legs (middle lines) and further through branch lines to the tips of the fingers and on top of the feet to all the toes, and over lines number two on the back (on both sides of the spinal column on the muscle, not in the groove, which would be either Sen Pingkhala or Sen Ittha), finally crossing over the head.
