If you are not the artist formerly known as Prince, why would you choose to purchase this Chakra Banner? Well, it is beautiful, loaded with symbolism, and an ideal focal point for meditation, chanting mantras, or breath yoga. But so are the other two Chakra Banners. Well, if no one banner speaks to you as the one to buy, you might consider basing your decision on the background color.Purple physically encourages creativity while calming the mind and the nerves. This color is uplifting and spiritual. Purple is the color of the crown chakra (also known as the Sahasrara) and is representative of pure thought. The crown chakra is the 7th chakra and the place believed to be where the divine enters into your being.In ancient Rome purple was the color of the Caesars. Only a limited few were allowed to wear purple, hence it’s “royal” significance, despite the fact that purple was the first color that we were able to produce as a man-made dye. Widows in Thailand wear purple as a sign of mourning, while in Tibet the amethyst is believed to be sacred to Buddha. The Egyptians find purple is symbolic of faith and virtue.
