The practice of preksa meditation breaks our torpor and makes the mind wakefully attached to truth and moral discipline. Such a mind cannot be deluded by anybody. In this respect mantras or charms are very useful. We employ charms to remove mental and physical diseases. We can make ourselves pure with the help of Bhavana which can give us mental and physical health. When consciousness has been aroused, holy feelings rise in our minds and make our thought realistic. With such thoughts we proceed to perceive the soul. Feeling, thoughts and perception become im­mersed in consciousness and the mind becomes free from attach­ments and aversions and remains neutral. It stops reacting. This is the way to get rid of all problems and miseries.

False consciousness makes us indulge in sense pleasures. This happens at the level of the unconsciousness. We become deluded by the waves of electric energy flowing through the object, the fingers, eyes and speech. This happens at the level of conscious­ness associated with Bhavana.

Our mind establishes conscious relations with objects and men, seeks that which is beneficial and renounces that which is harmful. This cannot be done until we have freed ourselves from delusions caused by feeling. We engage ourselves in free think­ing. This happens at the level of consciousness associated with thinking.

We are not satisfied with the external forms of things and try to comprehend their subtleties. This happens at the level of con­sciousness associated with perception. Having made the uncon­scious conscious, we employ the power of perception to self-per­ception.
