Agnya chakraAgnya chakra

This two petalled center is called the Agnya chakra and is located where the two optic nerves cross each other in the brain (Optic chiasma). This center caters to the Pituitary and Pineal glands in the body, manifesting as the two institutions known as the ego and superego.

Since this center governs our eyes, too much visual engagement like computers, televisions, over reading, etc, weakens this center. Indulging in mental callisthenics and intellectual feats leads to blocking of this center and one develops the notion of I-ness and ego.

When the kundalini pierces the Agnya, we immediately becomes thoughtless and forgiving, which is the essence of this center, that is, it spontaneously bestows us with the ability to forgive others.

Forgiveness is the power to let go of anger, hatred and resentment, and to discover, in humility, the nobility and generosity of the spirit. Once we start to see, that by not forgiving others we are actually doing no harm to anyone other than ourselves, we begin to realize that it is not only wise and generous to forgive, but also very practical. By forgiving, we begin to feel a tremendous sense of peace and relief.
