brahmanāḍi - ब्रह्मनाडि

The causal (deepest) spine. [ref name=”bg17″]The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita, Swami Kriyananda. Chapter 17, “Freedom Through Inner Renunciation.”[/ref]

Raising one’s energy through the brahmanadi is the last test a yogi must go through to attain full union with the Divine. The opening of the brahmanadi is at the top of the head, and when one draws one’s energy to this point, one becomes reunited with God. [backref name=”bg17″]
