Preksha Dhyana: Perception of Breathing

About:

Our series on "Science of Living" includes tracts on various facets of prekṣā dhyāna.

In the present one, the reader will find an elaborate discussion on śvāsa- prekṣā (perception of breathing). It goes without saying that breathing and vital energy (prāna) are the prime factors of our life, and hence the first step to unlock the latent ener­gies within us would be to develop the prāna through pro­per regulation of breathing. The method of śvāsa- prekṣā is thus a vital medium for making life energetic, which is very necessary for an aspirant of spiritual development. He aspires to make his mind ever vigilant. The only way to achieve this is to bring about a vital change in the mode of living, which ultimately requires a change in the mode of breathing. Without properly regulating the process of breathing, one could hope of little progress in his sādhanā.
