In several religious tradition’s simulations of the human body regarding its visible formation may be parallel to its “subtle” or “spiritual” structures, which function to mediate between the material and the transcendent realm. The theory of the subtleties delivers a flexible and soft relationship of the human individual to wider metaphysical and ideological systems. The construction of these subtleties actually trains the person through different practices like “ zikr”, “ Muraqabah”, meditational traditions like ‘yantra yoga’ in Buddhism, meditative visualization like ‘mantras’, ‘mudras’ in Hinduism and ‘Meridians’ energy points in Chine’s tradition. These subtleties which are the inborn points of lights in each human body having positions in particular organs with specific colors and significant works according to their traditions. These function within that tradition ought to reflect religious and cultural transformation within that environment. In the following study, the esoteric theories of the subtle spiritual centers of the person developed by the Islamic Sufi tradition and the Buddhist Tibetan tradition will be considered.
