Sahasrara, which means “thousand petaled lotus,” is the seventh chakra and is located at the crown (top) of the head. It is represented by the color white or violet and is considered to be the center of wisdom and pure consciousness. Its issues are devotion, inspiration, selflessness, and spiritual understanding. It is related to the pituitary gland and also connects to the central nervous system.
