Reference : Chakras by Harish Johari
This centre is located between the eyebrows, where Hindus traditionally apply kumkum, chandan or other form of bottu or bindi.
This is the point on which Krishna advises us to meditate, in the bhagavad gita.
A person who has reached this chakra cannot be dragged down to the previous 5 chakras. (Yay!)
In this chakra the yOgI becomes a divine manifestation, (s)he is past dvandvas like good and bad etc.
- He realises that he is eternal and the body is temporary.
- All experience and ideas only serve to clarify one’s perception.
- Whatever one desires it comes true.
- One can see the future, present and past.
In the fifth or vis’uddha cakra, a person realises sah aham – soham – He I am!
In the anAhata or 4th chakra, one evolves through joy or Ananda.
In the vi’suddha cakra, one evolves through cit, which might be translated roughly as consciousness.
- In the आज्ञा चक्र, one attains to sat and realises that there is no observed and observer. He is now a hamsa!
- Everyone in his presence becomes calm.
- He is beyond desire.
- He understands the inner meaning of cosmic knowledge and can generate scriptures.
- He is beyond time – kAlAtIta!
This tattva here is called mahAtattva. According to tantra, this is the same as buddhi tattva whivh is the cause of manas, buddhi, ahankAra and citta.
