Seven Spinal Chakras (By Mihran K. Serailian)


This painting of the Chakras is based upon drawings brought from India by Mr. Hall in 1924. Several symbols not generally included were added: (1) interlaced triangles behind the figures, the body of the yogi himself forming the upright triangle; (2) the beam of golden light rising from the Brahmarandra, or Gate of Brahma, in the crown of the head; and (3) the Sahasrara, or Thousand-Petaled Lotus, in the upper part of the brain, which is generally pictured as an inverted lotus-like cap, but here is shown as a great flower-like sunburst, with a white center and concentric rings of petals.|  Mihran K.
