Preksha Meditation : An Introduction (Booklet)
by J.S. Zaveri
Editor: Muni Mahendra Kumar
Third Edition Oct. 1995
Prekshā-dhyān is a technique of meditation for attitudinal change, behavioural modification and integrated development of personality. It is based on the wisdom of ancient philosophy and has been formulated in terms of modern scientific concepts. We hope that the synthesis of the ancient wisdom and the modern scientific knowledge would help us in achieving the blissful aim of establishing amity, peace and happiness in the world by eradicating the bestial urges such as cruelty, retaliation and hate.
The different methods of preksha (i.e. perception) include shvās-prekshā (perception of breathing), sharir preksha (perception of body), chaitany-kendr-prekshā (perception of psychic centres), etc. All these are methods of ultimate transformation in inner consciousness. Here, there is no need to sermonize for adopting virtues and giving up evils. When one starts practising perception, one experiences himself that he is changing, that anger and fear are pacifying, that one is getting transformed into a 'righteous person.'
For all this, we are grateful to Yugapradhana Acharya Shri Tulsi and his successor-designate Yuvacharya Shri Mahaprajna for their constant guidance and efforts in this direction.
