Preksha Meditation

What is Preksha?

Preksha MeditationPreksha is a process of awakening one’s own reasoning mind (viveka) and thereby control one’s passions and emotions. It is based on the principle of engaging one’s mind by concentrating on the perception rather than on thought. The perception again is that of internal phenomena of consciousness and not that of external objects. It is a technique of seeing one’s inner self. It consists of regulation and ultimate control of respiratory and other physiological functions nervous system endocrine (ductless glands) systems and subtle inherent vibrations which produce passions.
Based on the teachings of Mahavir, 6th century B.C, and tuned into the level of modern man. Acharya Mahapragya’s Preksha Meditation is a miraculous way for self-healing.

Following are the seven steps of Preksha:

  • Pranayam: Conscious control and regulation of breath is pranayam. This will result in increase of will power and benefit the autonomous nervous system.
