[raison d'etre = reason or justification for existence]

The endocrines are the tuning keys that tighten or lighten up the driving forces of the organism. They are, therefore, the psychic centres. They form a system (often called Endocrine Orchestra.) and cannot perform or function separately. Each influences the rest in the chain. The system is inter-related by chemical processes and inter-locked with the brain and the nervous system. Our thoughts affect the endocrines as the latter also influence our brain and mind. Imbalance or discordance in the endocrine system will vitiate the thought and produce psychological distortions, e.g. over-activity of the gonads will cause the mind to dwell on sexual matters, cause peevishness or irrational fear.

Practice of the perception of psychic centres has the capacity to restore equilibrium in the endocrine system to strengthen the power of reasoning mind and weaken the forces of primal urges.

Meditation is a process of integrated development of per­sonality. It changes habits, refines attitude and behaviour and transforms the entire personality of the practitioner. The result of meditational practice can be observed, defined and interpreted scientifically. Modern science has proved that life's processes lie almost wholly within oneself and are amenable to transformation. It has been established by the use of the feedback equipment that meditation changes the electrical activity as well as transmutes the synthesis of hormones.
