Ghaṭasthāna (घटस्थान, “Place of the Jar”):—The Yoginīs of the Yoginīcakra reside in the Ghaṭasthāna, kubjikāmata-tantra (or, kādiprakaraṇa). It is said that they are born from the water of this Jar and possess its qualities. This Ghaṭasthāna is localized above the heart-lotus (which refers to the Mātṛcakra), also known as the area of the throat (kaṇṭha). It is also known as Ghaṭādhāra (‘The Base of the Jar’). Located within the Ghaṭasthāna is the sixfold site of Kuleśvara which consists of a vajra-lotus where the Yoginīs are seated.
