The word Ajna means "command", in the sense of the Guru's command (spiritual guidance). The Tantric Ajna or Brow chakra has two petals, is associated with the tattwa of Manas or Mind (not to be confused with the Manas-Chakra), which is beyond even the most subtle elements (although still part of embodied existence). It is said to be white in colour. More recently in Western occult and New Age thought the Ajna chakra has been identified with the "third eye" (eye of psychic vision), and other such concepts not found in the original Tantrika system.
