Chaitanya Kendra Preksha

In order to gain finer individual traits, human beings have been longing for ways of self-transformation. This change in the personality is possible through perception of psychic centers, which results in the harmonization of the endocrine system - the main source of our emotions. Preksha Meditation has recognised thirteen important centers for this purpose.

The human endocrine system secretes extra-cellular signalling chemical compounds called hormones and governs growth, metabolism, and emotions through them. It is commonly believed that our emotions are product of our brain where as, in reality, emotions are the result of hormones. Meditation on the psychic centers can establish control over endocrine system and bring about transformation in our personality.

Objectives

Although, our consciousness resides through out the body, it subsists in its most concentrated form along the psychic centers. In other words, psychic centers are the focal points from where the waves of consciousness emanate in the body. During the perception of psychic centers, attention is focused for a long time on a specific part of the body.

The main objectives of the perception of the psychic centers are:

  • Rectification of attitudes, behaviour, and emotions
  • Transformation in the habits
  • Building a positive character and compassionate personality
  • Establishment of control over emotions

Human beings are unique in the sense that they possess logical and reasoning power. However, good ideals and positive character can be sustained only through proper understanding of the centers of the character-building. Perception of the psychic centers is an important technique for this purpose.

Character is not linked with brain, but is linked with the endocrine system. In other words, one may be intelligent but not necessarily a good human being. The basic source of character is the karmic body. The vibrations of karmic body reach the electrical body. The vibrations of the electrical body enter the physical body and thus influence the endocrine glands or the psychic centers. We can awaken the hidden powers of the psychic centers by practising chaitanya kendra preksha.
