Physical Benefits

Practice of Preksa Dhyana will bring about changes in the chemistry of the body. For integrated development of personality, it is necessary to bring about radical changes in the body-chemistry, i.e. the chemical secretion in the body should be more balanced. The hormones of pituitary and adrenals are mainly responsible for this.

When the mood and emotion-producing hormones from the adrenals are properly regulated and har­monized by those of pituitary, the equilibrium of the body-chemistry is more balanced. If the practice of meditation does not bring about desired equilibrium, then it must be concluded that the technique has not been properly followed.

Mental Benefits

Next to the chemical equilibrium is the mental equilibrium. Normally, any condition of stress or excitement upsets the mental balance. For instance, one is puffed up with the slight public admiration one may enjoy. If there is no mental equilibrium; even a minute event may assume mountainous proportions. On the other hand, with the mental equilibrium gravest situations can be tackled peacefully. Mental equilibrium will become more and more balanced with meditational practice. This is an important benefit derived from the practice of Preksa Dhyana.
