The Third Eye is deeply connected to Lord Shiva and His own blissful home – Varanasi, the spiritual capital of the world. Varanasi is the DNA of Vedic tradition where death itself is liberation. So, Third Eye is Shiva’s abode or Shivaloka, from where He expresses His all-auspiciousness and powers.

In Sanskrit, we have a proverb, "If you die in Varanasi, you will achieve liberation." ‘Varanasi’ means Third-Eye – the space between your nose and eyebrows. If your identity dies in Varanasi, when you leave your awareness at the Third Eye, you will become enlightened.

The Awakened Yogis and Masters of Vedic India have done deep research and fiery penances to explore the powers of Third Eye, for the supreme benefit of humanity. In Vedic history, there are countless incidents of Enlightened Masters initiating their disciples and enriching humanity through the powers of Third Eye vision.

For example,◆▶ Maharishi Valmiki wrote the whole scripture Ramayana (divine poetic narrations of Lord Rama) by accessing the cosmic records of every minute happening, feeling and experience through His Third-Eye vision.

◆▶ In Mahabharat, over 5000 years back, Bhagavan Veda Vyasa awakens the third eye of Sanjaya, the king’s charioteer, to visibly narrate to him the happenings and even the mind-set of Kurukshetra warriors, as it was unfolding thousands of miles away, just like a Live TV relay connection.

◆▶ Bhagavan Sri Krishna gifts the third eye vision to his dear devotee, disciple Arjuna, amidst the waging war-field of Kurukshetra during the Bhagavad Gita. He says – “Divyam dadāmi te cakṣuḥ (11.8) – Oh Arjuna, let me give you the Divine Eyes, without which you will not be able to see the inconceivable mystic power.” And opens His third-eye, through which Arjuna has the rarest spiritual, cosmic experience.

“All yogic powers are expressed from Third Eye only. Whether it is the power of materializing, teleporting or the power of intuition or the power of making your dreams into reality – everything is from the third eye.”
