Geyacakra (गेयचक्र).—Geyacakra (mantra 69) means a cakra whose glories are worthy of being extolled in song. The reference here is to the path of the kuṇḍalinī in its ascent from the mulādhāra to the sahasrāra at the top. The geyacakra is sūryamaṇḍala (the disc of the sun) in the middle of that path. This mantra implies that the deity seated in the sūryamaṇḍala assists Devī, who is Tripūrasundarī or kuṇḍalinī-śakti, to the sahasrāra (see mantras 99, 110).
