‘Anja’ means to know. Ajna Chakra is situated in the middle of the head behind the eyebrow centre. It is associated with the face, eyes, ears, nose, sinuses, cerebellum, and the central nervous system.
Ajna chakra connects all the senses - sight, sound, smell, taste and touch, and also extrasensory perception. It is often symbolised by the colour violet and a lotus flower with two petals. Its corresponding mantra is AUM.
The positive attributes of the Ajna Chakra are true knowledge, inspiration and intuition. Misdirected Manifestations include confusion, indecision and uninspired.
