In publishing this booklet, it is hoped to bring to the reader, in simple language, some of the truths, already known to the ancient philosophies, and now known to modern science.

What is Prekṣã-dhyãna?

Prekṣã-dhyãna is a technique of meditation for attitudinal change, behavioural modification and integrated development of personality. It is based on the wisdom of ancient philosophy and has been formulated in terms of modern scientific concepts. We hope that the synthesis of the ancient wisdom and the modern scientific knowledge would help us in achieving the blissful aim of establishing amity, peace and happiness in the world by eradicating the bestial urges such as cruelty, retaliation and hate.

The differnet methods of Prekṣã (i.e perception) include švãsa-prekṣã (perception of breathing), šarīra-prekṣã (perception of body), chaitanya-kendra-prekṣã (perception of psychic centres), etc. All these are methods of ultimate transformation in inner consciousness. Here, there is no need to sermonize for adopting virtues and giving up evils. When one starts practising perception, one experiences himself that he is changing, that anger and fear are pacifying, that one is getting transformed into a 'righteous' person.

Our series on "Science of Living" includes tracts on various facets of prekṣã-dhyãna. In this booklet perception of psychic centres is discussed in details. Every man wishes to develop his personality and become a good mam But the question is—What is the process by which one can develop an integrated personality? The answer is—perception of psychic centres. It is a process of harmonizing one's endocrine system and thereby achieving the development of integrated personality.

There are certain portions in our body where psychic energy is more concentrated than the other parts. These, therefore, are psychic centres. Perception of psychic centres, means "focusing of full attention on these centres, and meditation of these centres with concentration". These centres, are associated with ductless glands which are situated at these places and are called "endocrines". The endocrines exert profound influence on mental states and behaviour of an individual.

One of the main purposes of meditation is to eradicate evil from the way of life, behaviour and attitude of a person. The question is: Why do the attitude and behaviour get vitiated in the first place? What controls these personality fac­tors? What are the regulators and how do they regulate? It has now been established by scientifc research that every mental and emotional event is linked to hormones and neuro-hormones produced by the specialised nerves, hypothalamus and the endocrines. A whole new nervous system based on chemical substances is being mapped out in laboratories all over the world. Systematic mediation prescribing concentration on psychic centres, i.e. concentrated perception of endocrine glands and certain portions of the brain, gives the average person a safe means of controlling his moods and altering behaviour too. It could teach practical methods of treating emotional disorders and drug addictions. For a lasting change of attitude and behaviour, one must transmute the synthesization of the hormones. Same is the case for a permanent control of one's moods and altering one's way of life-transmutation of hormonal synthesization. Perception of psychic centres is a safe, practical, easy-to-learn technique for obtaining these results.

Benefits of Prekṣã-dhyãna

Prekṣã may appear to mean different things to differnet people because it contributes to increase physical, nervous as well as spiritual energies.

On physical level, it helps each bodily cell to revitalize itself; it facilitates digestion; it makes respiration more efficient and improves circulation and quality of blood; strengthens immune-system.

On mental level, it proves to be an applied method to train the mind to concentrate; it cleans and relaxes the mind; it offers a way to treat serious psychosomatic illnesses without drugs; it is an efficient tool for ending addictions and other bad habits; it reveals to one the mysteries of his mind by the realization and the real experience of the inner consciousness which includes the subconscious and the unconscious.

On the emotional level, the strengthening of conscious reasoning controls reactions to environmental conditions situations, and behaviour of others; harmonization of the functioning of nervous and endocrine systems results in control and ultimate eradication of psychological distortions.

On spiritual level, the firm control of the reasoning mind, regulation and transformation of blood-chemistry through proper synthesization of neuro-endocrinal secretions, and production of dispassionate internal vibrations lead one to attain the power to control the mind, and to become free from the effects of external forces compelling one to lose equanimity.

No Theological Dogma

Prekṣã-dhyãna can be learnt and practised by anybody without distinction of caste, colour, country and creed. There is no communal or theological bias, nor does it insist on any particular theological belief.

Though the process is not very difficult to learn and practise, it is essential to learn the technique through experienced and trained teachers. Normally a ten-day retreat (training camp) is a suitable means to acquire proper training.

Review of Results

During the last fifteen years, hundreds of training camps have been organised and more than 13,000 persons have been oriented in this technique. Amongst them are scientists, doctors, engineers, professors, government servants and other intelligentsia, besides the general public. Police Department, Education Department and others have taken part in the special courses organised by Tulsi Adhyatma Nidam. More such courses are being planned for different disciplines, professions and work areas. Over and above those who have been trained in these camps, thousands of others have practised prekṣã-dhyãna and have been benefited thereby. While many of them have restored their physical health, hundreds of others have been cured of mental tensions, hypertension and other psychosomatic diseases.

For all these, we are grateful to Yugapradhana Acharya Shri Tulsi and his successor-designate Yuvacharya Shri Mahaprajna for their constant guidance and efforts in this direction.

These two great spiritual saints have truly blessed the entire human race with the boon of prekṣã-dhyãna, and we are confident that all and sundry will be benefited by learning and practising this universal and easy-to-learn technique of prekṣã-dhyãna.

Three permanent training centres have been established viz 1. Tulsi Adhyatma Nidam at Jain Vishva Bharati Ladnun, (Rajasthan) 2. Adhyatma Sadhna Kendra at Mehrauli, New Delhi and 3. Tulsi Sadhana Shikhar at Rajsamand (Rajasthan).
