- The top of your head is the tenth gate or the crown chakra. It is normally covered by hair that acts as antennae to protect the top of the head from sun and exposure, as well as to channel sun and vitamin D energy. Yogis or Sikhs do not cut their hair, they coil or knot it on top of head on their solar center.
- In men the solar center is on top of the head at the front (anterior fontanel). Women have two solar centers: one is at the center of the crown chakra, the other is on top of the head towards the back (posterior fontanel). For all, coiling or knotting the hair at the solar centers channels one’s radiant energy and helps retain a spiritual focus
- The pressure of the multiple wraps of the turban keeps the 26 bones of the skull in place. There are pressure points on the forehead that keep you calm and relaxed.
- Turbans cover the temples, which protects you from mental or psychic negativity of other people. The pressure of the turban also changes the pattern of blood flow to the brain. When you tie up your hair and wrap the turban around it, all the parts of your skull are pulled together and supported.
- Men have a beard to give a protective energy field around the face, women don't. The chuni provides that protection ( to crown chakra and energy field around the face) so you don't attract the wrong kind of energy.
