Agya Chakra


The Agnya Chakra is situated in the center of the brain area, and represents the sixth stage of man’s evolution. We can identify its position as the middle of the forehead. It is the gateway to the Sahasrara Chakra, and so will not allow the Kundalini to rise above if there are any impurities in the mind. When the Kundalini passes through this Chakra, our thought waves elongate so that the space between the two thoughts grows wider. This space is silence, and as the petals of the Chakra open up, silence blossoms in the center and spreads outwards, pushing our thoughts to the periphery of our awareness. This is where the state of “thoughtless awareness” happens. In this state we actually feel the beautiful silence, the stillness, which is at the heart of creation.

Location in Human body


The primary quality of the Agnya Chakra is forgiveness. At this point in our evolution man had developed a sophisticated society, but with this sophistication came the problem of ego
– the idea that he was doing it all. This problem of I-ness was accelerated by the continuing success of these material gains
– flourishing civilizations, world trade routes and other such trappings. The natural result of this could only be an inflated Ego, and this arrogance was further fuelled by the conditionings of upbringing and environment (e.g. from parents and friends), the perils of the Superego. So Ego and SuperEgo conspired to make man very isolated from his Spirit, from his true essence.

The Human Mind -

The human mind is divided into an Ego and SuperEgo. These are located at the uppermost endpoints of the channels of Ida Nadi (the Moon Line of Left Channel) and Pingala Nadi (the Sun Line or Right Channel). These two channels cross over at
the Agnya Chakra. Everything which relates to the past (such as memories, conditionings, and emotions) accumulates as a residue in the SuperEgo on the right – having crossed over from the Left Channel – side of the brain. Everything which relates to the future (such as thinking, planning, action, etc.) likewise accumulates as a residue, but in the Ego on the left side of the brain.

It is not that we should want to destroy our Ego, it has a very useful place in our being. Without it we would not be able to act at all. But we need to bring it into balance with the SuperEgo in order to create a space through which the Kundalini can
ascend to pass into the Sahasrara. And controlling Ego is a hard task to master

Forgiveness -

Forgiveness (and forbearnance) and humour are perhaps the most effective methods. The Ego is a creature of action. It thrives on doing – on punishing for a wrong, on effecting a change, on obtaining a desire. By practising forbearance, we slow down the fuel of the Ego, we force the Ego to wait. By so doing our Spirit then has the time to shine through in our action, and the true course becomes manifest. It is a simple truism that if at any time we seem in a hurry to accomplish some task or achieve some event, then the Ego is the driver of the chariot. The Spirit operates to a Divine timetable, and even so ensures that the end result is of total benefit to us as Spiritual beings, without our having to “push things along”. Forgiveness is simply another fact of this state.

Humour also provides a strong dose of medicine for an Ego in full flight. It is easy to deflate the balloon of Ego and pull it back into proportion by pricking it with a pin of humour. By watching the Ego as a witness, we can begin to see its subtle tricks and manipulations, and then we see the joke of it all. We can never fight the Ego, that is a contradiction of terms (fighting requires action, the action is Ego, Ego fights Ego…?). we can only bring it down with our laughter, and then our Heart will break through its stranghold.


The presiding deity (or role model) of the Left Agnya center is Shri Mahavira, who was the incarnated expression of the SuperEgo of the Virata. His seat is in the SuperEgo in the right temple. He preached non violence to the self and others. His message was very subtle – that one should not harbour violent thoughts, and that through gentleness of mind the SuperEgo was sublimated. He showed man how to rise above the gross mind.

Shri Buddha is the deity of the Right Agnya, and He expresses the Ego of the Virata, and has His seat in the Ego on the left temple. He spread the message of compassion and non violence. He preached the eightfold path, and taught self balance called the middle path. He revealed the art of piercing the Ego for the ascent of Kundalini.

En route to the Sahasrara Chakra, the Sushumna Channel passes through the center Agnya Chakra. This is the place of Lord Jesus and Mary. Jesus said the He was the Light of the
Path, and it is His Path that leads us to the kingdom of Heaven in the Sahasrara. Through His power of forgiveness He brought redemption to mankind. He came to help man realise his own
Ego by allowing Himself to be crucified; great repentance was aroused in man, who could then see the monstrosity of his own Ego and thus realise humility. Jesus then showed true forgiveness. If one sincerely asks for forgiveness it will be given. Not only do we leave the past behind with forgiveness, but we leave our Karmas and Sins behind as well. The Spirit cannot
accumulate sin or Karmas (the fruit of past actions) any more then it can accumulate guilt. Once we are beyond the Ego, in the Spirit, we are beyond all of our past actions. The coming of Christ was a major breakthrough in the human Spiritual ascent; He dissolved all the guilt; sublimated the Ego, taught forgiveness and proclaimed the immortality of the Spirit through His Resurrection. He was born again into the Spirit, and we also are born again into our Spirit, when our Kundalini gives us our second birth.


Amongst other things, the Agnya Chakra governs our sight. We should therefore respect our eyes as a gift with which the beauty of the Divine creation is revealed to us. We should not waste or abuse that gift. To stop the eyes from wandering, or from suffering from attention on gross things, we should encourage ourselves to take time out to look at the natural things like sky and grass, or even look at a flame as a means of cleansing.


Clearing the Left Chakra:

Using the Elements:

Look at the Agnya spot on the photograph of Shri Mataji through a candle flame.
Use the candle treatment on the back of the head (aka Back Agnya treatment).
Let the sunlight fall on the back of the head.


Mother, please forgive me for anything I may have done against my Spirit.

General Advice:

Left hand towards the photo, right hand on the back of the head. Tapping the back of the head with right palm, left hand towards the photo. Reduce the pressure on the SuperEgo by stroking the right temple across the back of the head downwards to the Swadisthan Chakra. In severe cases use burning camphor bhandans on the back of the head.
Do not live in the past. Reflecting on past events and relationships, and other nostalgic attitudes feeds the SuperEgo, so try to stop indulging in these habits and conditionings.
* Sometimes the SuperEgo becomes so overbloated that it squeezes the Ego and presses down the Vishudhi Chakra at the base of the skull and neck. This is sometimes incorrectly diagnosed as a Vishudhi problem – the cure is as above.

Clearing the Right Chakra:

Using the Elements:

Look at the Agnya spot on the photograph of Shri Mataji through a candle flame.


Mother, I forgive everyone, including myself.
Mother, You do everything, I do nothing.

General Advice:

Left hand towards the photo, right hand on the forehead.
Stop all meditative activities involving the Agnya,
e.g. concentration, visualization, hypnosis, clairvoyance, etc.
Forget the many wrong conditionings presented by the “Christian” organizations and churches.
Do not be futuristic, try to stay in the present.
* When there is excessive overbloating of the
Ego, the SuperEgo becomes squeezed and
memory problems can develop.
