The chakras are centres of vital energy in the subtle body, revealed by the great sages of India. Imbalances in the chakras caused by sprees, wrong thinking and trauma, lead to obstruction in psychic energy flow. When balanced, the Sahastraara or Crown chakra opens up the individual to universal consciousness and it slimitless energy and joy. Imbalances blight the inner life. Attuning the mind to the vibrations of Darbari Kanada, the great raga associated with the crown chakra, rewards the listener with divine wisdom, Tranquility and inner richness. When the crown chakra is healthy one has pure awareness of oneself and the world. This brings complete confidence and trust in the divine dispensation. The raga is essayed as spiritual contemplation by Pundit Pandering Parate, a respected sitarist of the Tanras gharana, in its traditional colour.
