What Ashtama Chakra … 8th plexus

This entire set of topics shall discuss the 8th plexus or eighth chakra of Yoga whose knowledge is originally related to Atharvaveda, but sadly this knowledge is already lost from this world … Within Siddha sciences and their vast lore’s, the 8th chakra (or Ashtama Chakra) is also termed as Niralamba Chakra and Niralambasthana … But since the placement of the four petals of this chakra resemble the placement of upper four great white worlds that are a part of Brahmaloka (who in other words is also addressed as Sadyojata face of Shiva), thus I have even termed this four petalled lotus as Brahma Chakra and as Brahmaloka Chakra and also as Sadyojata Chakra …

 

AA-1 … Base of this discussion upon the 8th plexus or Ashtama Chakra …

As I had told earlier that within the knowledge of this text I shall only be doing a detailed discussion upon the eighth plexus (Ashtama Chakra or 8th plexus) or in other words, within this text I would not be discussing the first seven (or seven lower) plexus’s of Yoga Tantra that are told about in the Sanatan Dharma

Not repeating that earlier given knowledge of the seven plexus’s (i.e. Sapta Chakra) is because of the fact that this knowledge was already given by me during a much earlier transmigrated incarnation which as such was around 5694 BC (+/- 1 to 2.7 years) and when I was known by a name which if translated in English means “reverence to the divine leaf” …

At the time of my above discussed transmigrated incarnation (I mean, incarnated through the path of transmigration of soul), I was a Yogi of Aghora Marg (i.e. I was an Aghori) who had also left his incarnated frame as soon as he had distributed his knowledge for which he had arrived at that time … After this incarnation, I attained the golden colored self luminous accomplishment which directly relates and thus is an intrinsic unbroken partless-part of the golden colored Tatpurusha face of Sadashiva … And thus, as soon as the de-incarnation process was completed, I entered into the Tatpurusha face of Shiva from where I have returned this time around …

And it also was within that incarnation that I was only granted the name which if translated in English means “reverence to the divine leaf” and this name was granted only because of the fact that I had attained the macrocosmic status of being the “one of the divine leaves” which are present inside the basket on which Sri Bhagwan Balakrishna (i.e. childlike stage of Sri Bhagwan Krishna) rests and whilst that basket continuously and eternally floats within the vast and thus unfathomable macrocosmic waters …

And since there are many leaves in that divine basket of Sri Bhagwan Balakrishna, so there have also been many Yogi’s who have held this name (i.e. reverence to the divine leaf) … But as far as the last nine thousand years of the current quadrant of the present precession cycle stands, I was the first amongst those Yogi’s to have attained this status …

In each full cycle of precession of equinoxes which has a time span of 24,000 human solar years (as per middle time units of precession) and which itself is a time span of 25,920 human solar years (as per the currently applicable nadir time units of precession), only one Yogi attains this status … This is the unsaid rule …

And there have also been a series of precession cycles, where no Yogi had attained this status of the being the divine leaf of our discussions …

The Yogi who had attained this status prior to me, was none other than Brahmarishi Markandeya … And when he went even beyond, then I had attained this status because at any single time there cannot be more than 108 of such divine leaf’s within the entirety of the multi-world, multi-plane, multi-universal macrocosmic creation …

 

So since the knowledge of first seven plexus’s was already provided during the earlier discussed incarnation that was also achieved by adopting the process of transmigration of soul (by this phrase, I mean process or Tantra of Parkaya Pravesh and which in simple words, can also be termed as Virgin Birth) and since that knowledge system is still available within this world, so the need to repeat it again does not even make sense …

As is very well described within Yoga Tantras, there are seven plexus’s (Chakra) and these are as follows, from the lowermost plexus till the uppermost plexus …

  • Mooladhar chakra … Root plexus …
  • Swadhisthan Chakra … The sex plexus …
  • Manipur chakra … Navel plexus …
  • Anahat Chakra … Heart Plexus …
  • Vishuddh Chakra … Throat plexus …
  • Ajna Chakra (or Agya Chakra) … Or in other words, the Third eye plexus as it is also called …
  • 7th plexus or thousand petalled lotus at the top of brain … Sahasrara or Brahmarandra Chakra or Shunya Chakra … Or simply, crown plexus …

 

That phase when this knowledge was rendered by me was the phase when the pristine divinities of the golden colored, east facing Tatpurusha face of Sadashiva were most active within this world …

Tatpurusha itself is the Yogeshwara (Lord of Yoga and Yogi’s), Maheshwara (The lord of all or the great-lord), Yogiraaj (King of Yoga Tantra), Yoga Guru (Guru of all Yoga Tantras and Yogi’s), Poorna Yoga (Fullness of Yoga) and Poorna-Yogi (the complete Yogi) and it is due to this reason, the same Tatpurusha is also the Lord of all Yoga Tantras and is also the Lord of all Yogi’s that ever were, are and could ever be resting in any part of the Maker’s Makings … In Vedanta, Tatpurusha of Raja Yoga is addressed as Sadyojata face of Sadashiva who itself is the one that is addressed as Hiranyagarbha Brahma in the Vedic lore, and Hiranyagarbha itself is the Okar of Yoga Tantra (the same Okar of Yoga, is also addressed as Ukar) … Without the divinities of Tatpurusha face of Shiva present within a world, there can neither be any Yoga Tantra nor any Yogi …

 

AA-2 … 8th plexus (or Ashtama Chakra) and its path …

This is a brief discussion upon the 8th plexus (or 8th chakra or Ashtama Chakra) and its path …

The path to reach the 8th plexus is in five stages as discussed below …

 

1st stage of path of eighth plexus …

When the consciousness of a Yogi rises from the Mooladhar Chakra (Root plexus) and then just about reaches the base of the 7th plexus, then this only denotes the accomplishment of the first stage of Yoga …

This relates to the east facing, diamond white colored Sadyojata face of Sadashiva from whom the four headed grandfather of allness (I.e. Pitamah Brahma Ji) is self manifested …

And thus it also related to Samaveda and also to Dwarika Sarada Aamnaya Peetha (or in other words, Dwarika Sharada Vyasa Peetha) …

Thus this is also the stage of self realization of the innermost meaning of the Vedic Mahavakya of Samaveda which is told as “Tat Twam Asi (which actually means “That Thou Are”) …

And it eventually is from the above discussed first stage, that the Yogi enters the 2nd stage of Yoga as is described below …

 

2nd stage of path of eighth plexus …

Within the 7th plexus (i.e. the thousand petalled Sahasrara or Brahmarandra Chakra), there are three smaller plexus’s placed one on top of the other … The uppermost of these is the Manas Chakra (i.e. the six petalled mind plexus or lotus of mind) …

This six petalled mind plexus is white colored and its petals are equally placed or located in the six directions …

This mind plexus denotes the final perfect non-dual unioned state of Shakti and Shiva or in other words the final union of Prakriti to Purusha … The petals of this plexus are of a white color and they are envelopes by a very light colored (serene) blue light which keeps becoming darker as the sight moves away (or beyond these six petals of the mind plexus) …

And as we had discussed earlier that when Prakriti and Purusha unite to each other within the six petalled mind plexus (i.e. Manas Chakra), then is the self realization and entry into “elemental voidness (or in other words this is also called as Shunya Tattva)” which itself is via the earlier stage of self manifestation of “Shunya Samadhi (or the trance within emptiness or absorption in emptiness)” … The elemental voidness or Shunya Tattva has also been addressed as macrocosmic voidness or primordial voidness or primordial state of nature or voidness of allness or Sarva Shunya or the great emptiness or great voidness or simply, Mahashunya

Above condition of Mahashunya is also described as the state of “eternal non-lightness enveloping eternal non-lightness” within Naasadiya Sukta of Rig Veda which was already discussed in the earlier topic of “As IT self expressed itself” and in another earlier topic of “As IT Progressed” where we had told that the former non lightness relates to Shunya Brahman (Zero Infinite, which itself is the same as Infinite Zero) and the latter non lightness relates to Sarva Shunya (Voidness of allness or emptiness of all that is or macrocosmic voidness which is being discussed here) …

It is to this plexus that every knowledge which has concepts of emptiness (Shunya or Shunyata) is related, because this is also the plexus from where a Yogi self realizes the Shunyata (emptiness) …

This realization of Shunya is the second stage of Yoga …

This relates to the south facing, deep blue colored Aghora face of Sadashiva from whom the reddish-orange colored Rudra Deva self manifests, so this stage is also denotes the self realization of Rudra

This is also related to the Vedic monastery of Yajurveda i.e. Sringeri Sarada Aamnaya Peetha …

Thus this is also the stage of self realization of the innermost meaning of the Mahavakya of Yajurveda, which was told as “Aham Brahmasmi (which in English language can be written as “I Am That”) …

And it eventually is from the above discussed first stage, that the Yogi enters the 3rd stage of Yoga as is described below …

 

3rd stage of path of eighth plexus …

This is the stage where the Yogi’s consciousness begins moving beyond the mind plexus and thus is also begins moving beyond the 7th plexus (or crown plexus) …

This path of rise of consciousness is within a very brightly lighted subtle channel that rises beyond the mind plexus, which itself is located at the uppermost part of the 7th plexus …

It is within this golden channel subtle channel (tubular structure) that the Yogi’s consciousness rises upwards and moves beyond the 7th plexus … This is the channel where Raam Naad (which actually means, the sound of Ram) which has already been discussed in the previous set of topics, is heard (self realized) by that Yogi …

Within various knowledge systems, this golden channel has been termed as follows …

  • Vajradanda … The golden staff of lightening of Siddha sciences …
  • Vajradanda Chakra … The golden staff of lightening of Siddha sciences …
  • Vajra … The golden colored thunderbolt (of Devaraja Indra) …
  • Ratnasaru (or Ratnamaru) … The sword of next Avatar of Sri Bhagwan Vishnu i.e. Bhagwan Kalki …
  • Staff of many of the ancient Greek gods …
  • Staff of Moses
  • In Sikh Lore, this is addressed as Khanda Saab … This is told to be 300 hands long …
  • The staff of symbol of Caduceus …
  • Mount Meru … Or in other words, Mount Sumeru … And which also means the same as self manifested Merudanda …
  • This is also the path of Vajrayana sect of Buddhism …

Accomplishment of self realization and thence the further transit through this subtle golden channel denotes the accomplishment of the 3rd stage of Yoga …

And it is from this 3rd stage of Yoga that the Yogi moves to the 4th stage of Yoga as is discussed below …

This stage relates to the Tatpurusha face of Shiva and thus it also relates to Rigveda and to the Aamnaya Peetha of east i.e. Jagannath Puri …

And since Indra Deva (or in other words, Devaraja Indra or Idandra Deva) is self manifested from (or out of) the same Tatpurusha face, so this 8th plexus is also the plexus of Indra Deva …

Thus this is also the stage of self realization of the Great statement (which in Sanskrit language is termed as a Mahavakya) of Rig Veda, which is told as “Prajnanam Brahma, which actually means as self luminous is That (“That” means, Absolute being)” …

 

4th stage of path of eighth plexus …

This stage has two parts which are also discussed in a later topic …

This golden highly lighted yet very subtle channel that rises up from the top of 7th plexus (i.e. it rises beyond the mind plexus) ultimately terminates just below the Eighth Chakra … Due to this reason, 8th plexus has no contact to anything and thus is seems to be floating in a vast fathomless empty space which envelopes it …

Thus 8th plexus has four very vast sized petals which are placed in such a way that three petals are upon one side and one is on the other side … Thus it looks like vast wings of a flying bird …

Thus the 8th plexus was also termed as following …

  • Swatantra chakra … Independent plexus …
  • Niralamba chakra … Rootless plexus (as it has no contact to anything else) …
  • Niralambasthana … The place of final freedom or independence or place of a final liberation (i.e. isolation from allness and her each part or Kaivalya Moksha) …
  • The vehicle of Sri Bhagwan Vishnu … Also told as Garuda
  • The state of self realization of Zero-Infinite, Infinite-Zero … This was told as Shunya Brahman .(or that which is “empty, yet it is full”) …
  • What is told as Shunya Brahman in above bullet point is the same as what is addressed as Sriman Narayana (in Vedic Lore), Vishwakarma (in Vedas), Panch Mukha Sadashiva (in Shaivism) and the same was addressed as Panch Brahma (in Upanishads) …
  • Brahm Chakra (or Brahma Chakra or Brahmaloka Chakra or Sadyojata Chakra) … The plexus of Brahm (or in other words, Brahma or Brahman) … I have termed it such because the positioning of its petals is the exactly the same as the “four upper great-white worlds” of “Brahmaloka (i.e. abode of grandfather and creator of allness or the Loka of Pitamah Brahma Ji)” …
  • Vishvaroop Brahm Chakra … The plexus of macrocosmic state of the Maker or plexus of Maker’s Makings as within this plexus, infinite universes are self realized and thus this 8th plexus itself is the plexus of Maker’s Makings or Vishvaroop Brahma Chakra …

 

Continuing with above bullet point … I say so because of the fact that macrocosmic creation (Maker’s Makings) is none other than he self expressed, self manifested state and self presence of the attributeless-infinite absolute being and thus the macrocosmic creation (or Maker’s Makings) itself is the macrocosmic state of the Maker i.e. macrocosmic creation itself is Vishvaroop Brahma … And since the 8th plexus is where the entirety of the multi-universal macrocosmic creation (i.e. entirety of Maker’s Makings) is self realized, so this 8th plexus of our current discussion is also “The Plexus of Maker’s Makings or Vishvaroop Brahm Chakra” …

 

  • Kaivalya chakra … The plexus of a final liberation … This is also the Chakra (or plexus) of Kaivalya Moksha … The word written here is Kaivalya … This world (of Kaivalya) means the same as Moksha, which actually means “a full, final and permanent isolation from allness and her each part” … This is why within the Siddha sciences, this plexus was addressed as the “place of final independence or Niralambasthana” …

 

Accomplishment of self realization and thence the further stage of firmly resting in this 8th plexus denotes the accomplishment of 4th stage of Yoga … The 4th stage of Yoga itself is the finally describable stage of Yoga …

This 4th stage relates to the Vamadeva face of Sadashiva and thus it also relates to Atharvaveda and to Jyotish Aamnaya Peetha …

And since Sri Bhagwan Vishnu is self manifested out of the same Vamadeva face of Shiva, so this 8th plexus is also the plexus of self realization of Sri Bhagwan Vishnu …

Thus this is also the stage of self realization of the Vaidik Mahavakya of Atharvaveda, which is told as “Ayam Atma Brahma (which when translated in English is as a phrase of This Is That” …

 

Thus are the four stages of Yoga which relate to the four Vedas and which in turn relate to the Chatur Aamnaya Peetha which itself are within each aspirant … And eventually is to these inner Peethas that the four Vyasa Peetha are related whilst being “mirror images” of the four inner Aamnaya Peethas that have subtly been discussed here …

So with this as a base, we shall now proceed into further deeper discussions on the 8th plexus and that too via the path of Atharvaveda because it eventually was within Atharvaveda that the knowledge of this plexus was original rendered …

 

AA-3 … And finally …

And even when above is absolutely true, yet the self realizations of the 3rd and 4th stages can be interchanged for some aspirants …

By above I mean that what is told in above discussions as 3rd stage would be self realized as the 4th stage by some aspirant’s and what is told as the 4th stage would be self realized as the 3rd stage by some aspirant’s …

But even when above stated aspect would be the case, yet these aspirants do not end up being thrown out of the timeless Vedas (i.e. Vedic lore’s) … I happen to be one of such aspirants …

 

The discussions continue …

Irrespective of what may be apparent to any aspirant of now or ever, within the current transmigrated incarnation I remain as a little student of the Absolute.
