In this age
of technology, industrialisation and over-urbanisation, we are constantly
subjected to tremendous stresses and tensions. These, in turn, produce
psychosomatic diseases like hypertension, insomnia, and various types
of heart diseases. In desperation, people take to drinking and dangerous
drugs which give temporary relief, but create more serious problems. The
remedy does not lie in drugs or fantasy, but in the process of catharsis
and development of inherit powers.
Philosophy teaches us to realise that our existence is functioning in
duality, i. e. there is a spiritual self within a physical body. Science
is also proving that life's processes for men lie almost wholly within
himself and are amenable to control. The control has to be exercised by
the power of spiritual self, and that inherent potency can be developed
by knowing how to live properly, which includes eating, drinking and breathing
properly as well as thinking properly.
is Preksha Meditation ?
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 ancienty wisdom and the modern
scientific concept 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 different modes of Preksha-Meditation includes svasa-preksha ( perception
of breathing ), sarira-Preksha ( perception of body ), chaitanyakendra-
preksha ( perception of psychic centres), etc. All these are methods to
ultimate transformation in the inner consciousness. Here, there is no
need to sermonise for adopting virtues and giving up evils. When one starts
practicing perception, one experiences himself that he is changing, that
anger and fear are pacifying, that greed and deceit are deteriorating,
that one is getting transform into a " righteous person".
