Crown Chakra Lotus Incense Sticks
Sahasrara or crown chakra is generally considered to be the state of pure consciousness,
within which there is neither object nor subject.
When the Kundalini energy rises to this point, it unites with the male Shiva energy, and a state of liberatingsamadhi is attained.
Symbolized by a lotus with one thousand multi-coloured petals, it is located either at the crown of the head,
or above the crown of the head. Sahasrara is represented by the colour white and it involves such issues as inner wisdom and the death of the body.
Its role may be envisioned somewhat similarly to that of the pituitary gland,
which secretes hormones to communicate to the rest of the endocrine system and also connects to the central nervous system via the hypothalamus.
According to Gary Osborn, the thalamus is thought to have a key role in the physical basis
of consciousness and is the ‘Bridal Chamber’ mentioned in the Gnostic scriptures.
Sahasrara’s inner aspect deals with the release of karma, physical action with meditation,
mental action with universal consciousness and unity, and emotional action with “beingness.”
In Tibetan Buddhism, the point at the crown of the head is represented by a white circle,
with 33 downward pointing petals. It is of primary importance in the performance of phowa,
or consciousness projection after death, in order to obtain rebirth in a Pure Land.
Within this state is contained the White drop, or Bodhicitta, which is the essence of masculine energy.
Corresponding deity for material element of this state is Dhruva.
