The body has chakras. Chakras are energy centres with certain psychological and spiritual functions. One of the important centres is the heart centre, also known as the Anahata Chakra. This Chakra is connected with love, compassion and devotion. The heart chakra is the “emotional heart”. When you love your partner, parents, children or relatives, it is the heart chakra manifesting.
There is also a “divine heart” and this is located on top of the crown. It is called the crown center. In Sanskrit, it is known as the Sahasrara Chakra. The crown center is the center of divine love, the center of divine union or yoga. Unless your crown center is activated, you will not experience soul realisation or divine union with your higher soul. But before it can be activated, the heart center must be activated first. The crown center involved universal love. When a person does not have love for his own parents or relatives, how can he expect to have love for many people, including other beings?
