4th Chakra Teaching Poster :
The Plane of Fragrance

This yoga poster created especially for teaching is based on the Plane of Fragrance painting by Pieter Weltevrede, that is also available as a poster without texts.

In the fourth chakra one experiences divine fragrances in meditation. Smell ceases to be linked to Earth and the first chakra, becoming a symbol of the Divine, carrying a strong emotional impact. In the course of Suddharma (apt religion), the devotee offers scents to the deity (like Krishna in this painting), in the form of flowers and/or incense. The fourth chakra Consciousness creates a change in the body chemistry so that it ceases to produce bad odors. The devotee will refrain of using articifical odors on his body, so that the body odors become a measuring tool of Consciousness. A person vibrating on this plane exudes a fragrance not unlike that of lotus flowers or sandelwood.
