This two petalled center is called Agnya and is located where the two optic nerves cross each other in the brain (Optic chiasma). This center caters to Pituitary and Pineal glands in the body which manifests the two institutions of ego and superego within us.

Since this center governs our eyes, too much visual engagements like computers, televisions, over reading, etc, weakens this center. Indulging in mental callisthenics and intellectual feats leads to blocking of this center and one develops the notion of I-ness and ego.

When Kundalini pierces the Agnya, the person immediately becomes thoughtless and forgiving, which is the essence of this center, that is it allows us to forgive others.

Forgiveness is the power to let go of anger, hatred and resentment and to discover, in humility, the nobility and generosity of the spirit. Once we start to see that by not forgiving others we are actually doing no harm to anyone other than ourselves, we start to realize that it is not only wise and generous to forgive but also very practical and pragmatic. By forgiving, we start to feel a tremendous sense of peace and relief.


Sit upright and relaxed, cross-legged, on the floor. If you choose to sit on a chair, place your feet a little apart from each other, without shoes. Rest your hands palms open and upward on your lap.
