Next, we consider the psychical benefits derived from meditation. The basic improvement is the change in habits i.e. transmutation of attitude and, behaviour. If one practises medita­tion systematically and regularly, it must have profound effect on one's emotional nature. The psychological distortions such as cruelty, retaliation, greed; hate, jealousy, deceit, haughtiness and aggression are sure to be reduced; in intensity as a result of meditation.

The change is due to the harmonization of the endocrines. When the flow of psychic attention is diverted from navel, lower abdomen and genitals towards heart, throat, nose, tip, forehead and cranium, there is blissful hormonal influence on our mental states and behaviour as a result of which the bad habits begin to disappear. There is a natural subsidence in the intensity of the bad habits, because the hormonal synthesis, which nourished them, is withdrawn and the psychological dynamite is defused.

The perception of psychic centres does eradicate psychologi­cal distortions. But this does not mean that the total change is instantaneous. The long process of eradication of the evil com­mences with the commencement of the practice.
