Sahasrara as the Lotus of one thousand petals

Sahasrara is the most beautiful part of your being. It is a big lotus with one thousand petals of different colours appearing like inflated flames. It is a thing that has been seen by many people, but to see it pour that torrential rain was like these flames becoming a fountain, a fountain of colour, fountain of fragrance; when you think of a flower pouring its colour and its fragrance around.

People have written very little about Sahasrara, because whatever they have seen is from outside, and it is not possible for them to see from inside. Even if you reach from inside and the whole Sahasrara is not opened out, you cannot see its beauty; because when it is closed, the whole of it, you just pass through an aperture and get out of it. But just imagine a huge big one thousand petalled lotus, and you are sitting inside on the corona and looking at all those petals, all very beautifully coloured, and fragrant, and pulsating with the bliss of joy.

To remain on that position is the ideal position, but then after the silence you are filled with tremendous compassion and love, and you are drawn out to people who haven't yet known what is having eyes. And then you try to put your attention to the

Sahasrara of millions of people; and then you start seeing the problems that exist in the Sahasrara. And even if you desire to open the Sahasrara, it is a very difficult thing, because the channeling of the Divine to human beings has to be done through human beings. The power may be with you, but it has to be channeled through human beings.
