(Anāhata Cakra): The “un-struck” center. This name refers to the fact that shabda Brahman (the cosmic sound) is heard mostly at this level. This sound begins in the Heart as OM, the seed of all sounds. It is the fourth energy center in the human body, located in the middle of the chest. It is related to the Air element and the Heart, bestowing unconditional love, selflessness, humility, affection, and transpersonal emotions. Anahata chakra is the seat of harmony, good tendencies, tolerance, sanctity, balance, and compassion. At this level, there is no longer any attachment to security, worldly pleas­ures, honors, or social status, as the motivating force is love. Unconditional love dawns in anahata chakra.
