This article explores some numeric correspondences that have deeper connections. Some of it is speculative.
The 7th or crown chakra is composed of 1,000 petals. This chakra runs the opening and some activity of the 6 lower chakras but is mostly out of our awareness, much like many bodily functions.
The chakras are managed by a set of 50 devata each, working together to create sutras of light (subtle geometry) and mantra (vibration) to produce experiences and form.
There seem to be 50 sounds used by the 50 devata. Our human approximation of these sounds is the Sanskrit alphabet.
There are also 50 petals on the lower 6 chakras. I’ve seen descriptions of which petal has which sound and produces which qualities, but that appears to be misaligned.
There are 7 primary chakras and 13 primary sub-chakras (hands, elbows, shoulders, feet, knees, hips, and the high heart). That totals 20 chakras.
20 chakras x 50 devata = 1,000, the same as the crown chakra.
Sarva* loka, the abode of the Divine Mother, has 19 enclosures (described in the Devi Bhaagavatum). Sarva loka is within Brahma loka, making 20. But the connection here isn’t clear, even after sitting with it a bit.
The principle of nested spaces, layer within layer, shows us that fundamental patterns repeat themselves throughout creation. Recognizing the patterns helps us understand how the world works. Very complex yet easy-to-understand principles.
*Sarva means wholeness or all
