Question: I have read that there are seven spiritual centres in the body, but you have just given us six.

Sri Chinmoy: Sahasrara is considered to be the seventh spiritual centre, although it is not linked to the other six. The Sahasrara chakra is located at the crown of the head.

When one enters into this crown centre, he enters into trance and goes beyond the consciousness of this world. The mantra of this centre is 'Supreme'.

There are many other insignificant centres in the subtle body, but the six I have talked about and this Sahasrara chakra are the most important ones.
