What is the "Third Eye" that Buddhist refer to?

topic posted Mon, January 5, 2009 - 8:56 PM by  Metaphysics

I think this might help us see what I refer to as God, a divine intelligence, IS within Consciousness itself

God is...only as your awareness of it is ...a higher consciousness, then you will see with no eyes - so raise your awareness if you want to know the Divine ...Atheist will never know God.

First the Eye of Consciousness (the symbol on the dollar bill and Kemetic pyramid) then there's the 3rd Eye of what I the Minds eye.

Five eyes (五眼) include (1) the Physical-eye that a sentient being is born with; (2) the God-eye that can see anything anywhere; (3) the Wisdom-eye that can see emptiness of phenomena; (4) the Dharma-eye that can discriminate all illusory phenomena; and (5) the Buddha-eye of omniscience which includes the preceding four. (See three wisdom-knowledges.)

The Third Eye is esoterically often referred to as the “Eye of Consciousness” for it is with the “Third Eye of Consciousness” that we all in truth really see and perceive the many dimensions and levels of reality! You do not see with your physical eyes, you see with your mind and “Eye of Consciousness!’

In Hinduism and Buddhism, the third eye is a symbol of enlightenment (see moksha and nirvana). The third eye is the ajna chakra (sixth chakra) also known as brow chakra or brow centre This is commonly denoted in Indian and East Asian iconography with a dot, eye or mark on the forehead of deities or enlightened beings, such as Shiva (God of Destruction), the Buddha, or any number of yogis, sages and bodhisattvas. This symbol is called the "Third Eye" or "Eye of Wisdom", or, in Buddhism, the urna. In Hinduism, it is believed that the opening of Shiva's third eye is the end of the universe.


The Eye of Providence or the all-seeing eye is a symbol showing an eye surrounded by rays of light or a glory, and usually enclosed by a triangle. It is representing the eye of God within and without keeping watch on humankind (Divine Providence).

Aldebaran is called the Eye of Revelation.

*Aldebaran ( α Tau, α Tauri, Alpha Tauri) is the brightest star in the constellation Taurus (Dog Star) and one of the brightest stars in the nighttime sky. Because of its location in the head of Taurus, it has historically been called the Bull's Eye. It is Venus and Sirius that are symbols of the eye of Consciousness. Gautama the Buddha or Gotama, literally means the conductor of the Cow (Taurus)

Mercury, the messenger of time, was also called Budh. Sirius is the star of the planet Mercury. The 'Lord of Wisdom' is Mercury, Ptah or the star Sirius (Dog Star) was in Taurus.

...Siddhartha - again, not a name but a title, means "Rich in Yogic Power."

Eye Symbology

Reality is experienced through the 'eye' or 'I' of time. It is your personal journey, simultaneously on many levels, through a 360º computer consciousness virtual reality program.

The physical eye has a pupil. We are pupils/students in a university experiencing consciously through the lens of time or virtual reality.

The opening of the eye, is symbolic of a time of awakening, the evolution of consciousness -- the activation of your DNA = 11:11 digital alarm. The opening of the eye, Iris, Isis, I, can be the physical eye or what is called the 'third eye', which looks up and out, has a lens and is the pineal gland.

The camera slows down the action allowing us to experience events as linear in nature, when indeed they are not. Exploring in linear time allows us to experience emotions through an electromagnetic field, duality, polarity, love vs. fear. We see balance as we awaken and remember that we are souls sparks, the twinkling lights you see, who are in a physical form that is evolving back to its original creation, pole shifts of consciousness, earth changes both physical and as metaphors.

There is much symbology linked with the image of the 'eye', all linking to the eye as a metaphor for the source of creation, God, Eye of God.

      "We call it the "The Third Eye", Europeans call it The Pineal gland which is in the center of the brain." The Pineal gland goes on to produce the *Melanin."

      "The symbolism of the ancient scriptures shows that man is the author of his destiny and is judged by his own actions. The ball is squarely in the court of man, and we must take responsibility for our actions. Humans can no longer afford to pass the moral buck."

      As the Eye--the All seeing-- it represents the divine omnipresence. As it is the One Being dwelling in all things as their consciousness and being, it is the unity of the world (Eye of Heru - Hero's Journey is the Astrology chart)

      The Hidden Book of Amenti (KMT)

      Within the system of Kundalini, the third eye is referred to as the ajna (SEKER) center or chakra. When one aspires to ones SEKER center, they are in the midst of great power. The SEKER chakra is the most powerful center of the six chakras. The third chakra is a synthesis of the previous five with, of course, balance from the heart chakra.

      All chakras denote endocrine glands and their secretions; lesser chakras extend from the central tree to the appendages of the body. Thus, the pineal gland or third eye signifies the higher fruit of the human tree of life. The physiological system represents that tree. It is also the divine doorway to Amen and diefication, leading to ever-higher levels of consciousness. When ones third eye is open, her psychic and spiritual powers defy limits and are infinite. It is also called the Master gland due to the fact that it is responsible for the manufacturing of various chemicals and proteins proper to body function.

      The pineal gland, and more, was understood by the ancient elders who saw this organ as the doorway to higher and deeper consciousness, the third chakra leading to eternal bliss. The pineal gland is black serpent, which saddles the middle of both brows

      "The Third chakra is the chakra of forgiveness and compassion. Forgiveness is the power to let go of anger, hatred and resentment and to discover, in humility, the nobility and generosity of the Spirit. It is the one that dissolves all our conditionings, ego, habits, false ideas of racialism, and all our misidentifications. It is the narrow gate which opens the way for our consciousness to ascend to its final destination, which is the first center."

      "The third centre is called SEKER (Agnya) Chakra and has only two petals. This is the centre placed where the two optic nerves cross each other in the brain (optic chiasma). The centre caters for pituitary and pineal body which manifest the two institutions of ego and superego within us."

      Resides in the two-petalled Agnya-chakra. Residing in this Chakra, controls various organs (Indriyas). Hence, it is known as Agnya-Chakra situated between the eye-brows.)

      In India I am known as Mahavishnu. But when I came to this Earth, I was crucified. My Message is that of Resurrection, to show you that you are the Eternal Spirit and not your body, materialism, or your thoughts. I was born in a manger to show you that the Spirit within you has nothing to do with money, material comfort or power — it is all powerful, all-pervading and eternal. Forgiving those who would have killed Me, I have opened in the Cosmos and within your being a narrow passage on the path which leads you beyond to God. When the Spirit is awakened in you by Kundalini, you are born again, and cross this Gate. Then you enter the Realm of Divine Awareness, becoming a child in the Kingdom of God.

      Karma, reincarnation, self-realization and the Divine Feminine as Holy Ghost -- God the Mother. Christ's teachings are more African and Eastern than the Churches would have us believe or would like to admit.

      The most ancient Eastern spiritual texts, the Vedas, of India, tell us that the process of spiritual awakening by which one attains truth -awareness is called 'Self-Realization'.

      The Self Realized person lives in direct experience of reality -- this is called "Jnana" ( a traditional sanskrit word meaning 'knowledge' or 'Gnosis';). Such a person is called a "Jnani" ('knower ' or 'gnostic' ) or "dwijaha" ('twice born'; first from a human mother to the earthly plane then secondly as a child of the Goddess, or Divine Mother, who gives the seeker their second, spiritual birth, Self- Realisation, into the plane of mystic awareness- gnosis! ). The traditional Indian texts extol the 'Divine Mother' as the Cosmic Matriarch, bestower of the highest treasure of Self-Realization upon Her deserving children. Many Indian mystic traditions say this same goddess is represented within the human being as the divine feminine power called Kundalini.

      So, Christ seems to be telling us that the kingdom of Heaven, which is a state of God-like perfection and child-like innocence is attained by some inner phenomenon. In the Gnostic Scriptures Christ spoke directly of this as an inner transformation, self realisation. He also told us that the Holy Ghost or Divine Mother is the power by which this is accomplished.

      • My Blog: Melanin, The Pineal Gland, and the 3rd Eye

        "We call it the "The Third Eye", but others call it The Pineal gland which is in the center of the brain." The Pineal gland goes on to produce the Melanin. Melanocysts are the actual cells that hold the Melanin, and in comparison, White people have the same amount of Melanocysts as Black people; but the difference is "in White people Melanocysts are closer together, and smaller in size." Where as in "Black people our Melanocysts are spread out and larger in size."

        "The Science of the Melanin" and "Dark Matter, Dark Secrets" melanin lies beyond skin pigmentation and the material-spiritual relationship of melanin!

        The pineal gland was the last endocrine gland to have its function discovered. Its location deep in the brain seemed to indicate its importance. This combination led to its being a "mystery" gland with myth, superstition and even metaphysical theories surrounding its perceived function.

        The pineal gland is occasionally associated with the third chakra (also called Ajna or the third eye chakra in yoga, SEKER (Sphere 3) in the Kemetic Tree of Life "Binah "Understanding). It is believed by some to be a dormant organ that can be awakened to enable "telepathic" communication.

        To start at the beginning: Melanin is a Greek name (from melanos) which denotes the color black. It is true however that before the Greeks appropriated Afrikan civilization and science, in KMT or Egypt (which is a Greek misguided name) the ancient black Egyptian (Metu Nefer) word that had the blackest connotation was KMT and they named themselves by it (kamau).

        On a psychological level, the study of melanin is a key to unlock mental slavery of ALL people. Melanin is the fundamental unit of the universe and can exist in four forms including Cosmic Melanin, Planetary Melanin, Plant Kingdom Melanin (chlorophyll) and Animal Kingdom melanin (black pigmentation). The latter is the appropriate field of study for Afrikans.

        Today, we can see how our ancestors, the indigenous people of this planet, have been able to reuse these energies in the past for the benefit of man in the expression of advanced civilizations we see today pyramid, temples, mathematics, architecture, cosmology and more.

        The organ of the human body with the largest surface area is, of course, the skin. Many people are aware that the deep concentration of melanin in African peoples skin makes them black and enables them to use the rays of the sun more effectively than our less “melanated” counterparts, but what few know is that melanin is not only present in our skin but it permeates our whole physical being. It is contained in a small battery cell called a Melanosome. The degree of blackness in various organs in Afrikan people depends on the type of melanin contained and its weight.

        Melanin is present in each organ and regulates the workings of our brain. Within the human brain stem are 12 centers of black melanin. On the earth, only humans have deep pigmentation of all twelve-brain centers. The brain center with the deepest pigmentation is the Locus Coeruleus or Black Dot. The Locus Coeruleus supplies the pineal gland with norepinephrine.

        The pineal gland controls the flow of melatonin during the night hours to activate R.E.M sleep which allows us to communicate with internal memory pools or other dimensions of life in nature. Melanin also causes seratonin to flow more effectively in the waking state so to “inspirience” more spirituality. This also helps to keep spiritual intunement at an apex.

        Melanin in its most concentrated form is black (Kemet). It is black because its chemical (KEM) structure will not allow any energy to escape once that energy has come in contact with it. This gives us an insight on Dark Stars and Black Matter.

        this is the reason I'm always talking about Black Kemet "Black" this or that etc is not about race, but to give insights into the next phase of Dark Matter and Black Stars...and who it relates to all of us

          the third eye is what it is.

          you can see it during meditation...

          and your consciousness can rise into it and experience its various abilities, powers, insights and etc.

          But everything has to be done in accordance with proper spiritual discipline. Forcing these kinds of things usually results in all sorts of problems and misery to the aspirant.

          You develop the insight, then see that your mother is going to die in a few weeks. Then you give yourself a heart attack from seeing that. You have to be ready for the experience when it comes.

          Everyone wants power and abilities. But the real power always lies in spiritual qualities like patience, compassion, peace and etc. Powers and abilities are just "stuff" - and more often than not, reasonably disturbing stuff. If you have the full load of spiritual qualities...and can also enter into a meditative state in which fear no longer exists, where self-control and detachment are extreme...then you can handle some of these abilities properly. But who among us has that kind of ability? Who could guard a vault with millions of dollars...with no control over you...and not even steal a penny? Who could do that if someone in your family was dying and in need of an expensive operation? When folks have that kind of moral discipline, then the powers are not a problem. But, of course, then the aspirant is far beyond being amused by their qualities...and will only use them for good.

            jo: Everyone wants power and abilities

            Actually there comes a point when power and abilities really aren't that attractive, at least for me.

              I think the urge to control and dominate others is a form of power-seeking.

              However that personal relationships, in work relationships, etc.

              Occult powers are just an extreme manifestation of that.

              But seekers can encounter these whether they want to or not...they can arise even if one hates them. Then one has to deal with them and the problems they cause, regardless.

              I think all of us deal with attractions to power and to control. It is very hard to really and truly surrender and let things go their own way.

              I think that more often that not just becomes an empty passive gesture, rather than true surrender. I think true surrender is not weakness, but dynamic action in the right direction.

              But words are just ink or some electronic blip. Putting spiritual truths into practice in the real world is a whole different thing.
