The crown chakra is the 7th chakra in the body, which allows you to feel divine unity and harmony with all living beings and everything around you.
The key purpose of the crown chakra is to align you through spirituality, self-realization, awareness, and enlightenment with the Divine power and the infinite stream of healing energy.
The element associated with the crown chakra is 'thought', and the color of the crown chakra is violet.
Sahasrara translates (from Sanskrit) to 'thousandfold' and the crown chakra symbol is depicted by a thousand-petalled lotus, and it consists of the following elements:
- 1000 petals with all vrittis from previous chakras.
- Circle in the middle.
- Seed mantra OM ॐ in the center.
Let's have a look at each of these elements individually and find out what is their meaning.
Crown Chakra Symbol: 1000-Petalled Lotus
The crown chakra symbol is usually represented as a violet-colored 1,000-petaled lotus flower, regardless of tradition or artist who created the symbol illustration.
A thousand petals of the Sahasrara symbol are meant to symbolize the power of kundalini energy, which rises into the awakened crown chakra.
When Kundalini moves across the top of the brain, the divine realization is manifested in the region of the Baihui or DU 20 (place where all energies of the body converge).
Ultimately, this amazing feeling can be described as a flower with multiple petals opening on top of your head.

Crown Chakra Symbol: Circle Of Oneness
The circle in the center of the symbol portrays the vacuum of space.
As your consciousness rises from lower chakras all the way up to crown chakra, you will be able to connect and merge with this infinite space.
You can also think of it as a ‘Circle of Oneness’ with all living beings in the Universe.
Crown chakra symbol sometimes has a syllable OM ॐ in the middle of it, also known as bija mantra (or seed mantra).
The OM is considered to be the world's fundamental sound, which includes all the other sounds. It is also a sacred spiritual symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, where it is regarded as the Universe's supreme sound and a representation of the Creator.
