What is Sen Sumana?

Sen Sumana begins two thumb widths above the navel and ends at the bitter part of the tongue.

Sen Sumana is the first of ten Sen in the Sen Sib, consisting of one major and four minor lines. Sen Sumana is predominantly linked to the Wind element, playing a crucial role in respiratory functions and addressing abdominal and digestive concerns. It is often associated with critical organs such as the heart, lungs, and stomach.

Moreover, Sen Sumana resembles the Indian Sushumna Nadi, as both energy pathways traverse the region where the seven primary Chakras are situated.
