5th Chakra : Right Knowledge
States of Being in the Chakras

Gyana or right knowledge is the first state of Consciousness in the Fifth Chakra, when the energy starts vibrating on the level of the Akash element, the 5th in the Stupa of the body. Gyana is a powerful uplifting force that takes one to the Plane of Bliss (Anand Loka), beyond the chakras. Gyana is the understanding of the laws of existance and of the means to synchronize with them. Gyana makes it clear that by reducing the scope and area of Karma one can remove the cause of bondage in Maya or Illusion. Gyana is the source of billions of pages that contain the world's religious teachings. The blank page that remains after the writing has long faded is Gyana and whatever was written is only an illusion created by the inc of Ego through Karma.
