Crown Chakra | Sahasrara

Crown Chakra

Sanskrit Translation: Sahasrara

Color: Violet/White

Location: At the very top of your head, resting on your crown.


According to most tantric yoga traditions, the final chakra translates as ‘a thousand petals’. This refers to its beautiful, petal-ladened symbology.

Sahasrara is nothing but pure consciousness, connecting you to the Universe. This complete Universe is also known as ‘Om’. And it’s quite literally nothing personal…

When it comes to the concept of The Crown Chakra, it’s something we all have in common. Every human, animal, plant, eco-system, planet and star has that same lifeforce energy. It’s also worth noting that this chakra exists beyond your unique ego. It is your connection to ‘God’, whatever you deem that to be.


Achieving a balanced crown chakra is the goal of any spiritual practice. Moreover, it’s not easy to do. Once truly balanced–you’ve achieved enlightenment. In other words, you discover the secret of who you really are. Transcending suffering is known in Buddhist tradition as ‘Nirvana’.

Besides working as control centers chakras also works as centers of interchange between physical, astral & causal dimensions. Through the chakras subtle energies from the astral body to causal body can be transferred, similarly physical energy can be transformed into the subtle energy through the action of the chakras & also that physical energy can be converted into mental energy within the physical dimension. As the chakras awaken man not only becomes aware of the higher realms of existence but also gains the power to enter those realms & then in turn to support & give life to lower dimensions.
