LOCATION: The crown chakra, of course, is located at the top of the head and is linked on a physical level to the pituitary gland. The third eye chakra is situated in the middle of the forehead and is connected to the pineal gland on a physical level.
IMPORTANCE: Flowering of this Chakra leads to a state of complete union with the cosmic consciousness or enlightenment.
The Sahasrara Chakra symbolises detachment from illusion; an essential element in obtaining higher consciousness of the truth that one is all and all is one.
Often referred to as a thousand-petaled lotus, it is said to be the most subtle chakra in the system, relating to pure consciousness, and it is from this chakra that all the other chakras emanate. When a yogi is able to raise his/her kundalini, energy of consciousness, up to this point, the state of Nirvikalpa Samādhi is experienced.
This stage is said to bring about rebirth or the siddhis – occult powers of transforming into the divine, and being able to do whatever one wishes.
