THE AJNA CHAKRA SYSTEM
YOGIC BRAIN mapping
The ajna system was our ancestors attempt at trying to explain the higher experiences of the human mind.
THE AJNA SYSTEM.
|BUDDHI||Intellect. Logical and rational thinking. Decision making and discriminative faculty of the mind. Intoxicants, like alcohol, reduce the control that the intellect has on the system, this is why we often act irrationally when we are intoxicated.|
Feeling of being an individual.
Perhaps the Ahamkara is the experience of the individual mind.
|HIGHER COGNITIVE EXPERIENCES.||The neo-cortex and it's experiences.|
MODERN BRAIN MAPPING.
Modern brain research divides the brain into four main categories.
These modern categories can be mapped onto the yogic model of "three head chakras."
Bindu chakra (back of the head)
The Logical Brain:
(front of the head)
|The Higher Mind:
||Crown chakra (top of the head)|
