Bindu = point, drop
Who has not at some stage dreamt of the “fountain of eternal youth”, and wished to find it? As in most sagas and myths there is also a kernel of truth in this. For this fountain of youth, vitality and health is located in the Bindu Chakra – one of the most mysterious and remarkable energy centres in the human body.
The Bindu Chakra lies beneath the cowlick that most people have at the back of their head. Anatomically it is located where the bones of the back and sides of the skull meet (the occiput and the parietal). The direction of the stream of cosmic energy flowing into the Chakra can be seen quite clearly at this point. Some people have two cowlicks, indicating the existence of two energy centres. These people often possess exceptional vitality and creativity, but on the other hand can also be inclined towards hyperactivity and extreme nervousness. In these cases the method described later in this chapter can help to balance out the energy flow again.
