Two Petals of the Ajna –
Third Eye Chakra
The seed syllable of Ajna is Ksham and the more well known, Om, or “Pranava Om”, which is believed to be the basic sound of the world and contains all other sounds. It is considered the supreme sound of the universe.
The Bīja mantras are monosyllabic seed sounds which, when they are spoken aloud, activate the energy of the chakras in order to purify and balance the mind and body.
The energy resonates in the chakra associated with the mantra, helping the speaker become aware of their body’s needs.
Each chakra is embedded with qualities called vrittis (whirlpools) which are thought-forms or emotions held within the chakra.
- Hang (Shiva)
- Kshang (Shakti)
The radiations of hang and kshang are white, pure (sattvic), and powerful.
In the radiations are the five Vayus (vital airs), five divine powers, and kundalini power.
