Vishuddhi literally means purification. Vishuddhi is responsible for health, youth and longevity and is also known as the centre of nectar and poison. Some believe it to be where thought waves are received and then sent on to the brain. The sensation related to this chakra is cold, sweet drops of nectar dripping into it, causing a feeling of beautiful and blissful intoxication. Vishuddhi is important in Kriya Yoga practices.
