The Secret of Past Lives ► 13 ►The Manner of Knowing the Previous Birth through Preksha ► B. Sharir Preksha (Perception of Body)

Posted: 19.10.2017

Perception of Body is an alternate third step of Prekshadhyan.

In this step the body is perceived not from open eyes but through conscious mind. Eyes remain closed. Taking the conscious mind to each and every part of the body, perceive transformations, vibrations and sensations taking place inside the body as an observer. This is called Sharir Preksha. In this practice we have to feel the touch of the cloth, sweating, itching, pain etc. Just experience all sensations.

[For trainer: Clarify this thing while explaining about Sharir Preksha and also with its practice.]

  • Concentrate your conscious mind on the big toe of your right foot. Perceive the whole portion of it. Experience the subtle vibrations of the vital energy taking place there. Experience them without any like or dislike. Perceive and comprehend just as an observer.
  • Now shift your attention to each part of the right leg one by one. Concentrate your mind and perceive the other toes, sole, heel, ankle, upper part of the foot, calf muscles, knee, thigh, up to the waist. Perceive all the parts, experience the sensations and vibrations taking place in each part just as an observer.
  • In the same way, repeat this process on your left leg.

This completes the trip of the lower body.

  • Now undertake the trip of the middle body. Concentrate your conscious mind on your lower abdomen, in and around that region and experience the subtle vibration of vital energy taking place over there. Perceive and comprehend just as an observer.
  • Now focus your attention to every internal organ of abdomen— kidneys, large intestine, small intestine, spleen, liver, pancreas, duodenum, gall-bladder, stomach and the diaphragm. Perceive each organ for 20-30 seconds and experience the sensations and vibrations taking place in each just as an observer.
  • Then concentrate your mind on the whole portion of the chest including the lungs, heart, inter costal muscles. Perceive and comprehend all the parts just as an observer.
  • Now practice the perception of the whole portion of the back including the spine, spinal cord and neck. Perceive and comprehend all the parts just as an observer.
  • Now concentrate on the right hand including the thumb, fingers, palm, wrist, lower arm, elbow, upper arm and shoulder. Perceive and comprehend all the parts just as an observer.
  • In the same way concentrate on each part of the left hand and perceive each part one by one just as an observer.
  • Concentrate on your neck, throat and vocal cord inside. Perceive the subtle vibrations of the vital energy over there. Perceive and comprehend all the parts just as an observer.

The trip of the middle part is completed.

  • Now undertake the trip from the chin up to the head. Concentrating on each part one by one—perceive the chin, lips, inner portion of the mouth including the tongue, teeth and palate, cheeks, nose, right ear (all three parts of it - the outer, the middle, and the inner), right temple, left ear and left temple, right eye, left eye, forehead and the head. While pursuing the head perceive all parts of the brain (front, back, right, left, outer and inner). Allow your conscious mind to permeate throughout the brain. Perceive and comprehend all the parts just as an observer.

The trip of the upper part of the body is completed.

  • Now practise the perception of the body as a whole. Those who can practise comfortably in the standing position can stand up slowly while keeping the eyes closed. Conscious mind is potential enough to concentrate on one point as well as to permeate throughout the body. Allow your conscious mind to concentrate on the big toes. Now spread the conscious mind according to the shape of the body to travel from the big toes up to the head and from the head down to the toes speedily. In between, practice holding your breath. Try to touch each and every cell of your body through the conscious mind. Experience each and every cell of your body ignited with the strong flow of vital energy. Feel the flow of Bio-electricity throughout the body. The sensation of pain, touch of clothes or any other specific sensation stops there for a while. Perceive it with equanimity, without any like or dislike. Slow down the speed of your conscious mind. Get yourself completely absorbed in the perception of body.
