2. 'Belly'. The human body's inner centre of gravity and the source of breath (energy), which is traditionally located about four centimetres below the navel, between the latter and the vertebral column. According to Japanese belief, it is here that profound vital forces reside. Through the Hara men and women can communicate with the universal energy, and there Ki is found. 'Deep' breathing must take place from the Hara, for it is from there that all the individual's physical and psychic forces emanate. The art of concentrating all mental and physical forces on this point is called Haragei. In Buddhism, Hara is called Tanden, the Japanese translation of the Chinese word Dantian, 'cinnabar field', the focal point for adepts of the Dao (Tao). Also called Seika-no-itten. See Ki, Aiki, Kime, Ibuki, Tanden.

The hara is also called tanden, dantian, and tan tien.
