Sanskrit: सहस्रार, Sahasrāra or Sahastrara - the seventh primary chakra, according to Hindu tradition. It is located either at the top of the head, or a little above it.
The Sahasrara Chakra symbolises detachment from illusion; an essential element in obtaining supramental higher consciousness of the truth that one is all and all is one. Often referred to as a thousand-petaled lotus, it is said to be the most subtle chakra in the system, relating to pure consciousness, and it is from this chakra that all the other chakras emanate. When a yogi is able to raise his or her kundalini, energy of consciousness, up to this point, the state of Samādhi is experienced.
