Most Powerful Mantra for Opening the Third Eye Chakra

Dec 25, 2007
Not only Kundalini Yoga, but all of yoga is really based on the seven chakra system. In this system there are seven chakra points that lie along the spine, from the base to the crown of the head, and each of these chakra points is responsible for the organs and glands situation in it's region. The chakras, though, are responsible for not just the organs and glands, but they are also responsible for our various personality traits and characteristic. Of these seven chakras, more of the most important and fascinating is the Ajna chakra, or Third Eye.

Situated in the middle of brain directly behind the center of the forehead, is the Third Eye chakra. This chakra governs the pituitary glad, which is the master gland for the endocrine system and strongly influences the functioning of the other endocrine glands. The endocrine system is very key to your overall health, thus, for optimum wellbeing, having the pituitary gland functioning properly is of paramount importance. Opening, balancing and healing the Ajna chakra, directly improves the functioning of this most important gland.

In addition, the Third Eye is considered to be the seat of wisdom and intuition. It allows us to see the unseen and know the unknown. Opening this chakra allows you to develop your intuitive, psychic nature. The more balanced and open this center is, the greater power of intuition and insight you will have. So let's find out how to activate this most important chakra point.

The most powerful method of opening the Third Eye chakra, is with the use of the OM (AUM) mantra. Each chakra and a seed sound, or bij mantra, which is a sound that that particular center resonates with, and chanting that sound activates that center. For the Ajna chakra, the seed sound is the AUM mantra. Chanting it aloud, or just mentally is one of the best techniques for opening this chakra. Here are two good methods for chanting this mantra.

In the first AUM mantra chanting technique, you should inhale deeply and then make a long OOO sound, for about two thirds of the breath. Then, for the last one third of the breath, make the sound MMM. Feel this sound emerging from the center of the forehead and emanating outwards. In addition, have your eyes turned slightly upwards as if you are trying to look through the center of the forehead. This is called Shambhavi Mudra, and it further stimulates the Third Eye.

The second technique for chanting the AUM mantra, does not require you to even verbalize the sound. Instead, close your eyes and as you inhale, feel the sound OOO entering through the center of your forehead, and as you exhale feel the sound MMM leaving from the center of your forehead. Repeat this meditation for as long as you like, imagining the sounds entering and leaving. Again, you should have your eyes turned slightly upwards, without strain, as if you are looking through the center of the forehead.

Both of the techniques above are excellent mediation methods for opening and balancing the Third Eye chakra. As I mentioned, opening this center bestows numerous benefits, ranging from excellent health, wisdom and even psychic powers. My only request is that you use the powers you ascertain for helping yourself and other in your spiritual evolution only. May the pure light within you guide you.
