Preksha and Anupreksha

The system of Prekshadhyan bifurcates into (a) concentration of perception, and (b) concentration of thought, i.e. "Preksha and Anupreksha". In the former technique of meditation, perception is primarily used for concentration, while in the latter the conscious mind is encouraged to concentrate Oxi a thinking process, i.e. contemplation. Each contemplation is practised in five steps:

  1. Posture Selection
  2. Recitation of Mahapran Dhvani (6 times)
  3. Kayotsarg
  4. Perception and Contemplation
  5. Recitation of Mahapran Dhvani (6 times)

  2. Contemplation of Tolerance
  3. Contemplation of Gentleness
  4. Contemplation of Fearlessness
