Makara King of Sea Serpents

Makara is the designation of the King of Sea Serpents in
Buddhism and Hinduism. He is also referred to as the Sea King. 

In Kundalini Yoga, Makara is the personification of the
energies of Svadisthana, the second chakra. When
the Kundalini reaches the third eye, Makara changes into
Bindu, a point of radiant light, according to Arthur Avalon
in this book, The Serpent Fire.
