This painting shows the chakras of Higher Consciousness : the 6th chakra and the 7th chakra, as well as the Soma Chakra and the Kameshvara Chakra, sub-chakras that lie in between the 6th and 7th chakra.

The deity of the 6th chakra is Ardhnarishvara, in which the duality of Shiva & Shakti, male & female, solar and lunar ceases to exist. This duality is also the duality of the left and right sides of our brain, as shown in the head of the yogi behind the deities. It finds its final balance of male and female energies in the Kameshvara Chakra.

When the I-Consciousness of the yogi has dissolved, the wish-fulfilling cow Kamadhenu (who is located in the Soma Chakra) provides nectar (soma) to the pineal gland that is the physical counterpart of the 6th chakra.

In the Kameshvara Chakra, the Kundalini energy in the form of Kameshvari is united with Lord Shiva in the form of Kameshvara. In this union also merge the 3 gunas (sattva, rajas and tamas), the 3 aspects of consciousness (knowing, feeling and doing) as well as truth (satyam), beauty (sundaram) and goodness (shivam). The final objective of Kundalini yoga has been reached.

The thousand-petaled lotus represents the 7th Chakra in which the deity becomes the inner Guru and immortality is achieved. The yogi is sat-chit-ananda or truth-being-bliss, the highest state of existence. Even if he stays in the physical body, he retains non-dual consciousness.

Full details on the symbolism of this painting can be found inside the Chakras Book.
