Up and down UG's torso, neck and head, at those points which Indian holy men call 'chakras', his friends observed swellings of various shapes and colours, which came and went at intervals. On his lower abdomen the swellings were horizontal, cigar-shaped bands. Above the navel was a hard, almond-shped swelling. A hard, blue swelling, like a large medallion, at the base of his throat. These two 'medallions' were as though suspended from a multicoloured, swollen ring blue, brownish and light yellow around his neck, as in pictures of Hindu Gods. There were also other similarities between the swellings and the depictions of Indian religious art: his throat was swollen to a shape that made his chin seem to rest on the head of a cobra, as in the traditional images of Shiva; just above the bridge of the nose was a white lotus-shaped swelling: all over the head the small blood vessels expanded, forming patterns like the stylised lumps on the heads of Buddha statues. Like the horns of Moses and the Taoist mystics, two large, hard swellings periodically came and went. The arteries in his neck expanded and rose, blue and snake-like, into his head.Printed Pages: 206.
