The throat is the region of the fifth chakra, which is called vishudha, meaning "pure" and the seed is "ham." It has a sixteen-petaled lotus as a symbol. This is the chakra which has the power of speech and manifestation through words It is the chakra of diplomacy. Balance here is expressed by clarity in speech, thought and action. It removes all our guilts and remorses when it is opened by the Kundalini, and gives us a kind and compassionate voice. The tendencies to dominate others or to feel dominated by others, the feelings of superiority or inferiority and all jealousies are removed when this chakra is nourished by the Kundalini.
The Vishuddhi is the chakra which gives us the connection with the whole, enabling us to feel our oneness and the fact that we are all part and parcel of the whole.
