Preksha Dhyana: Perception of Psychic Centres


Our series on "Science of Living" includes tracts on various facets of preksā-dhyāna. In this booklet perception of psychic centres is discussed in details. Every man wishes to develop his personality and become a good man. But the question is - What is the process by which one can develop an integrated personality? The answer is - perception of psychic centres. It is a process of harmonizing one's endocrine system and thereby achieving the development of integrated personality.

There are certain portions in our body where psychic energy is more concentrated than the other parts. These, therefore, are psychic centres. Perception of psychic centres, means "focusing of full attention on these centres, and meditation of these centres with concentration". These centres, are associated with ductless glands which are situated at these places and are called "endocrines". The endocrines exert profound influence on mental states and behaviour of an individual.

One of the main purposes of meditation is to eradicate evil from the way of life, behaviour and attitude of a person. The question is: Why do the attitude and behaviour get vitiated in the first place? What controls these personality factors? What are the regulators and how do they regulate? It has now been established by scientific research that every mental and emotional event is linked to hormones and neurohormones produced by the specialised nerves, hypothalamus and the endocrines. A whole new nervous system based on chemical substances is being mapped out in laboratories all over the world. Systematic mediation prescribing concentration on psychic centres, i.e. concentrated perception of endocrine glands and certain portions of the brain, gives the average person a safe means of controlling his moods and altering behaviour too. It could teach practical methods of treating emotional disorders and drug addictions. For a lasting change of attitude and behaviour, one must transmute the synthesization of the hormones. Same is the case for a permanent control of one's moods and altering one's way of life-transmutation of hormonal synthesization. Perception of psychic centres is a safe, practical, easy-to-learn technique for obtaining these results.
