Anahata or heart chakra is the fourth primary chakra, according to Hindu Yogic, Shakta and Buddhist Tantric traditions. Anahata Nad refers to the Vedic concept of unstruck sound. Anahata is associated with balance, calmness, and serenity. The heart is an integral organ of our body which holds the body. Heart represents the extreme emotions of love and anger, the two sides of our heart. Vier is a German word for number 4, Sanskrit being the roots of the language. Anahata is associated with balance dictates the importance of being unperturbed by the external forces of chaos. There are many challenges we face in our daily lives. The new opportunities put us in a dilemma of choice. There is a tussle between two contrasting choices in ourselves. Usually, the war of choices end with one dominating the other but Anahata provides a new perspective to the whole discussion. In Sanskrit, Anahata nad means the sound created paradoxically without two elements in contact. Whenever two elements collide, it causes friction which wears out one of the two opposing sides until the one dominates. Anahata provides a new concept where the two opposing force need not wear out each other and maintain a symbiotic and synergetic relations. The human desire to maintain the balance between the yin and yang is best represented by the concept of Anahata and Anahata nad representing that enriching relation.

The concept of Anahataviernad is achieving a symbiotic relation between fun and competition. It is often said that fun cuts the competitive spirit and competition cuts the fun aspects. This dilemma is clearly solved by attaining the state wherein the mind is controlling the body and not the other way round. The idea of a group being a competitive force without discarding the opportunities to explore new domains in spite the fact that it can cause a loss for the team was the driving force. When these two contrasting ideas collide together paradoxically, it represents the perfect balance which we strive to achieve.
