SAHASRARA CHAKRA

     


    Lord Siva's abode is the Sahasrara Chakra. 


    Satya Loka refers to this. This is seen at the very top of the brain. 


    When Kundalini and Lord Siva merge at the Sahasrara Chakra, the Yogi experiences Parama Ananda, or Supreme Bliss. 


    • The Yogi achieves the superconscious mind and the Highest Knowledge when Kundalini is brought to this core. 
    • He evolves into either a Brahmavidvarishtha or a full-fledged Jnani.
    • This Padma is known as Sahasradala-Padma because it has 1000 petals. 
    • One thousand Yoga Nadis, in other words, emanate from this center. 
    • There are different opinions about the exact number of petals. 
    • It is sufficient to know that numerous Nadis branch off from this point.



    The Yoga Nadis' vibrations are expressed by Sanskrit letters, much like the vibrations of other Chakras. 


    • On all Yoga Nadis, all 50 letters of the Sanskrit alphabet are repeated over and over. A Sukshma center is located here. 
    • The hippocampus is the human body's corresponding core.


    Just the first six Chakras, Muladhara, Svadhishthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddha, and Ajna, are referred to as "Shat-Chakras." Over it all is the Sahasrara Chakra. 

    • This is the most important Chakra of them all. 
    • This center is intimately connected to all of the Chakras. 
    • As a result, it is not counted among the Shat-Chakras. 
    • This is the Chakra that sits on top of all the others.



    In certain yoga traditions, the crown chakra, also known as Sahasrara or "thousand-petalled," is the seventh fundamental chakra. 

    • The Sahasrara is mentioned in a few medieval hatha yoga books, such as the ivasahit and the Tirumantiram, but not in the Pacimnya or Nath lineages; the Kubjikamatatantra only mentions the six lower chakras. 
    • The location of the Sahasrara is debated in the scriptures; some say it is beyond the body, while others say it is at the fontanelle or brahmarandhra on the top of the head, where the soul departs the body after death. 
    • A lotus flower with 1,000 petals of various hues is regarded as the Sahasrara. 
    • Each layer has around 50 petals and is organized in 20 layers. 
    • The pericarp is golden, and a round moon area inside it is imprinted with a bright triangle that may point upwards or downwards. 

    It is claimed to be the most delicate chakra in the system, referring to pure awareness, and it is from this chakra that all the other chakras issue. 

    • It is sometimes referred to as a thousand-petaled lotus. 
    • The state of Nirvikalpa Samdhi is achieved when a yogi is able to elevate their kundalini (consciousness energy) to this level. 
    • Shirshasana Vrikshasana are exercises for the Sahasrra Chakra. 
    • Khatu Pranam. 
    • Om Kriya Yoga 
    • Singing/Chanting while focussing on the Sahasrra Chakra. 



    What is the Sahasrara Chakra? 


    • The petal of a lotus flower represents the seven chakras in the body, which keep the flow of energy flowing. 
    • A global harmony of body, mind, and spirit is achieved when all of the petals are fully opened. 
    • The seventh chakra, Sahasrara, is where divine energy is activated. 




    What are the qualities of the Sahsrara chakra? 



    • The Sahasrara Chakra gives a more cheerful view on life as it activates. 
    • Our behaviors and attitudes have changed noticeably. 
    • The ego no longer has control over the Self. 
    • Gratitude, compassion, and acceptance become expressions of our inner Self. 
    • It is a rejection of any negative ideas that cause us to be unhappy and stressed. 
    • With a clear viewpoint, a balanced Crown Chakra gives spiritual insight and tranquility. 
    • He or she may sense disappointment, boredom, depression, and restlessness if the Crown Chakra is imbalanced or obstructed. 



    What is the color of the Sahasrara Chakra? 


    • The Crown Chakra is violet or white in hue. 
    • Violet is a hue associated with spirituality. 
    • When fully active, it is an uniting hue that incorporates all of the properties of the other chakras. 
    • It evokes powerful feelings of letting go as well as exhilaration at the prospect of change. 
    • There is an awareness of a significant shift. 
    • The violet spirit helps the self to see beyond the physical and material aspects of life. 



    Sahasrara Chakra, A Window to Your Higher Self


    Sahasrara is a Sanskrit word that signifies "thousand" or "infinite." 


    • The Sahasrara Chakra, also known as the Crown Chakra, is positioned at the crown of the head. 
    • The seventh chakra, Sahasrara, is the last of the seven chakras. 
    • It establishes a close connection with the highest Self. 


    The Crown Chakra's activation signifies a global flow of energy and spiritual enlightenment. 


    • It is symbolized as pure white light or the color violet. 
    • AUM is the Sahasrara Chakra's seed mantra. 
    • It is thought to have an impact on brain processes including memory, intellect, and acute attention. 


    Because it shines like the Sun, it is also known as the "Thousand-Petalled Lotus," "Brahmarandhra" (the entryway to God), or the "Centre of a Million Rays." No other light compares to the Sun's splendour. 




    All other Chakras' energy and radiation pale in comparison to the splendour of the Sahasrara Chakra. 


    • Medha Shakti is a powerful force found in the Sahasrara Chakra. 
    • Medha Shakti is a hormone that affects memory, focus, and intellect in the brain. 
    • Medha Shakti may be activated and strengthened via yoga. 
    • The Sahasrara is not distinguished by its color or quality. 
    • It is pure light that is made up of all colors. 


    Like the streams of a thousand rivers flowing into the sea, the energy of all Nadis converges at one center. 

    Shiva, the Supreme Self, has his seat here. 



    The Sahasrara Chakra's waking signifies the unveiling of Divine Splendor and the achievement of Supreme Consciousness. 


    • Ignorance dissolves with the waking of the Sahasrara Chakra, just as darkness fades with the dawning of the Sun. 
    • This Chakra reflects the Yoga aim of Self-Realization and God-Realization, in which the individual soul merges with Cosmic Consciousness. 
    • The person who obtains it is free of all Karmas and achieves Moksha, or total emancipation from the cycle of rebirth and death. 


    The Yogi attains Nirvikalpa Samadhi (the greatest degree of Samadhi) at the Sahasrara Chakra during meditation, when the mind finally comes to total quiet and finds fulfillment in the unity of knowledge, the knower, and the object of knowledge. 


    • The thousand-petaled Lotus blooms in the Sahasrara Chakra as a symbol of complete, unfolding Consciousness. 
    • Shiva in the form of pure, Supreme Consciousness is the Divinity of this Chakra. Thus the Adi Tattva, the Supreme, spiritual Tattva, is the equivalent element. 
    • The Mantra for Agya Chakra is the same as for Agya Chakra, and it begins with the sound OM. 



    What is the function of the Sahasrara chakra?


    • The crown chakra is also known as "the bridge to the cosmos," or sahasrra chakra in Sanskrit. 
    • All seven chakras are spiritual in essence, but this one is the most spiritual. 
    • It is the individual's center of spirit, enlightenment, knowledge, global awareness, and connection to higher guidance, and it is located above the top of the head. 



    When the Sahasrara chakra opens, what happens?


    • The Sahasrara chakra, often known as the crown chakra, is positioned at the top of the head. 
    • When it first opens, you're likely to go through a flurry of physical, emotional, and spiritual changes. 
    • It's also possible that you've already balanced and awakened your other six chakras by the time your crown chakra opens. 



    How to activate the Sahasrara chakra? 


    Here's what I propose doing when you're ready to activate your crown chakra: Please keep your voice down. 


    • A sound or mantra is linked with each chakra. 
    • Take some time to meditate... 
    • Books and podcasts may help you broaden your horizons. 
    • Make a habit of expressing thanks. 



    All meditation techniques benefit the seven chakras by keeping them open and aligned. 


    • Self-awareness, emotional management, and relaxation are all benefits of meditation. 


    Steps to a basic Sahasrara Chakra meditation: 


    1. Sit with your back straight and your feet flat on the floor in a comfortable posture. 
    2. Place your hands on your knees and turn your palms towards the sky to achieve the 'mudra' stance. 
    3. Close your eyes and take a deep breath in through your nose and out through your mouth. 
    4. Continue to take calm, even breaths. 
    5. Imagine the white hue of the lotus petals unfurling. 
    6. Visualize a brilliant hue enveloping your head and expanding gently throughout your whole body. 
    7. After 5 to 10 minutes, open your eyes and sit quietly for a while. 
    8. Seed mantra recitation AUM is also beneficial for deep meditation and Crown Chakra repair. 


    The Crown Chakra is activated by yoga positions in which your forehead meets the ground, as well as sitting postures. 


    3 simple yoga asanas to help you balance your Sahasrara Chakra:


    Shirshasana (headstand) 


    1. This yoga asana is thought to be ideal for stimulating the Crown Chakra's energy. 
    2. This asana strengthens, stabilizes, and energizes the core muscles while activating them. 
    3. Make an effort to hold this position for at least five effortless breaths. 
    4. Shirshasana provides mental clarity and balance when practiced regularly. 


    Sasangasana (Rabbit Pose) 


    1. Rabbit Pose is an excellent approach to engage deeply with the Crown Chakra. 
    2. The head, spine, and shoulders are all relaxed in this yoga stance. 
    3. Kneel and bend forward, bringing your crown of head to the ground. 
    4. By reaching back with your arms, cup your heels with your hands. 
    5. Instead of putting strong pressure down into the earth, lightly touch the floor with your head. 
    6. Lower your hips toward your heels, release your grasp on the heels, and roll up through your spine to a sitting posture after several breaths. 



    Savasana (Corpse Pose) 


    1. This yoga asana is the easiest and most efficient way to achieve detachment. 
    2. It teaches you to let go of everything of your ambitions, expectations, efforts, and judgements completely. 
    3. Visualize white light coming from the summit of your head and down the length of your spine as you inhale to increase the benefits to the Crown Chakra. 
    4. Visualize the light ascending up the length of your spine to the top of your head as you exhale. 



    What are recommended foods for a healthy and balanced Saharasra Chakra?


    • Natural, healthful meals that enhance overall well-being make up the Crown Chakra foods. 
    • Fresh and organic foods, such as vegetables, fruits, brown rice, brown bread, and robust broths, aid in the alignment of energy centers. 
    • Violet foods, such as eggplant and red grapes, are beneficial because they correspond to the Crown Chakra's hues. 
    • Ginger spice is a natural cleanser that also enhances spiritual clarity. 
    • Herbal teas help to clear clogs in the intestines by supporting digestive health. 



    When the crown chakra is blocked, what happens? 


    When your crown chakra is blocked, you may notice the following mental symptoms: 

    • Confusion. 
    • A sense of disconnection from the rest of the world. 
    • Spiritualization to the extreme (i.e., too much meditation) 



    What flower is linked with the head chakra, or Sahasrara? 


    • The crown chakra, also known as Sahasrara, or the thousand-petal lotus flower, is sometimes portrayed as a thousand-petal lotus flower in full bloom at the crown of your head. 
    • The roots of this lotus flower link to the Earth, and its petals flow as a stream of Divine knowledge and awareness out from the crown and down through the chakras.
