Copyright Theft

Perhaps we should be flattered by the number of people including dealers who continually infringe our IP (Intellectual Property) rights by using our copyright images, but we do not find it amusing, and will take legal action against any copyright thieves.

There were seven in all. The chakra system is the ultimate source of the significance of sevens in myth, legend and mystical and spiritual systems the world over.
