In the body the Mooladhara Chakra controls the excretory functions, as well as sexual activity, and exerts a general control on the sympathetic nervous system.
Before the human beings were created, before the earth and the sky, long before the sun, the moon and the galaxies, I filled everything with holiness and innocence.
Single-handedly, the Mother of the Universe, the Holy Spirit, Adi Shakti created me first to guard and protect Her everywhere. My total surrender and my exclusive alliance to Her can remove any obstacle.
In your body I am innocence, wisdom and spontaneity. I am the sancity of the marraige union and the blessings of saintly children.
When the Kundalini awakens My presence in you, you regain your lost innocence. She overcomes all of God's enemies outside, as well as those within your being.
I am the everlasting child and the sparkles of My innocence radiate the four corners of the Universe in a constant flow of bliss.
"Innocence is joy-giving. Innocence gives joy to people. Anything said innocently anything done innocently is very, very joy-giving...When Sahaja Yogis go anywhere, try to do anything, meet anybody, any social work, anything, people should feel that joy that you have within yourself. It is for that joy only the Adi Shakti (Primordial Power) created Shri Ganesha. Because that joy within you, of innocent joy, which doesn't harm anybody, which doesn't expect anything, which doesn't demand anything, which doesn't want anything, but just emitting joy all over, that sort of a personality you should have. There is nothing wrong in wearing good dresses, nothing wrong in eating good food, nothing wrong in having conversations, but in all that, it is the respect of the innocence, the expression of the innocence should be there. With this innocence, we can solve the problems. All the problems of the world can be solved. That's why Shri Ganesha is so important. If you do not have proper understanding of Shri Ganesha and if your Shri Ganesha is in jeopardy, I don't know what can happen to you...In these modern times, it is very important to preserve your innocence, that Shri Ganesha should be awakened within you and also in other people. That is going to save this world. Nothing else but the innocence that you have is going to save the world. Whatever you may know, whatever you may say, whatever you may write, please see that you are not hurting the Innocence within you. What is needed is your innocence. Innocence itself gives you moral strength, moral understanding. You don't have to read books for that. You don't have to go to any guru for that. Innocence will guide you and tell you that this is what is Sahaja; this is what you have to have. You all have got Realization. It is a very big thing that has happened to so many people. And I always want you to worship Shri Ganesha within you. Shri Ganesha is your innocence. It is the Spirit within you. When you want to know your Spirit, it is Shri Ganesha you become one with, one with Shri Ganesha. It is within you and is absolutely possible for all of you to be completely enlightened by the power of Shri Ganesha."

Here is an interesting picture of Sacrum Bone, as published in Taber's encyclopedic medical dictionary, edition 17. Amazingly it looks just like an elephant's face and trunk. Shri Ganesha protecting mother Kundalini in the Sacrum Bone
