The precutting of auricular cartilage is connected to one of the forms of initiations that are called Chira Diksha. The word Chira means a cut. After this initiation big earrings are passed through the cut that are called Cundala. The cut in the center of the ear is a connection of two energy centers that are linked with the control of sexual energy. This action allows a Yogi to sublime qualities of this energy. And even more than mentioned above, this act is also some kind of a challenge for a Disciple, the one who has decided to follow this way and through pain to prove his determination to become a Nath.
