Frequently Asked Questions
What is Ajna Press?
Ajna Press is a publishing company focused on publishing poems and stories to help open the mind to various perspectives.
What is Ajna?
Ajna is a Sanskrit word which refers to the third eye.The third eye point is on the forehead, two finger widths above the bridge of the nose. Some people wear a colored dot on their forehead called a bindi at the third eye point. But this surface definition isn’t really sufficient. Phisiologically, the Ajna is associated with the pituitary gland which is nestled under the brain – the pituitary acts as an interface between the endocrine system and the central nervous system.
Yet the Ajna really isn’t simply a physical manifestation. As the sixth chakra, it exists both in the physical body and the subtle body. It’s more or less an interface between the seen and unseen, the manifest and unmanifest.
To feed your intellect regarding Ajna we recommend a web search or books on yoga and chakras. To really learn about Ajna we highly recommend meditation. Repeated regular meditation.
Why the name Ajna Press?
In the study of certain yoga practices, focus on the third eye with the other two eyes during meditation puts a certain stress on the optic nerve. Prolonged and repeated focus on the Ajna can create a sensation of opening of the third eye. Thus the exercise of focusing on the third eye is essentially an ajna press.
