Basic Principles Of Preksha Meditation

Since perception is the key to this meditation technique, it is known as Preksha Meditation. Preksha means to perceive and Dhyan means meditation. The word Preksha is derived from the root iksha, which means to see. When the prefix Pra is added, it becomes Pra+iksha, which now means to perceive carefully and profoundly being free from attachment and aversion. In this technique, one has to observe the internal phenomenon of the body. In the beginning a person observes the states of the gross body, then the phases of the taijassharir, (the electrical body), followed by the vibrations in the karma sharir (the micro body). At a more advanced stage of the meditation process, the practitioner may succeed even in witnessing his past life. Thus while progressing through the gross to the subtle bodies, the art of visualizing ones own self may be acquired.

SampikkhaeAppagamappaenam this aphorism from the Jain canon Dasaveaaliyam forms the basic principle for Preksha Meditation. It means, 'See yourself through yourself.' Perceive and realize the most subtle aspects of consciousness through your own conscious mind.'
Acharya Siddhasena (6th Cent., A.D.) wrote, 'Let us observe the state of our body, perceive the form of our mind. Let us sit in meditation and observe the different states of our body.' Thousand of different kinds of changes occur in our body and to witness all these changes with inner eye is called the perception of self through self.

"Mr KC Jain inspired me to visit Adhyatma Sadhna Kendra Chhatarpur n do the Mantra Chanting in a unique scientific rhythmatic way n experience the difference both internally as also through Aura Scanning being done there. What I witnessed on 28th September was amazing. I entered meditative state within minutes of rhythmatic chanting n my pre n post scanning results just stunned me ( scans attached). I guess a combination of spiritual environment in Mantra Chanting room n the way it's being administered has played the critical role. Impact study by way of Aura scanning is bound to inspire each one. I thank Sh KC Jain for having invited me there n wish him n the Kendra all the best. SAYAR BENGANI DELHI"

"मैंने अपनी धर्मपत्नी के साथ अध्यात्म साधना केंद्र में हो रहे प्रेक्षा ध्यान शिविर में स्वास्थ्य हेतु भाग लिया । मेरी पत्नी के घुटनों में और बीपी में बहुत ज्यादा समस्या बढे होने के कारण दूसरे दिन हमने घर वापस जाने का निर्णय लिया। परंतु श्री के सी जैन के आश्वासन पर हमने 2 दिन और रुकने का फैसला लिया। यहां की योग थैरेपिस्ट ने जो उपचार प्रदान किया ना सिर्फ दर्द में आराम आया बल्कि वह बिना सहारे के चलने में सक्षम हो गई साथ में बढ़ी हुई बीपी में भी साइकोथेरेपी से विशेष फायदा हुआ । 7 दिन के प्रेक्षा ध्यान शिविर करने के उपरांत मेरी पत्नी पूरी तरह स्वस्थ महसूस कर रही हैं, हमने जाना की समस्या का कारण हम खुद हैं और समाधान भी भीतर है। मैं खुद भी अपने फ्रोजेन शोल्डर को पूरी तरह से स्वस्थ महसूस कर रहा हूं और मैंने 3 किलो वजन भी कम किया है। यहां पर हो रहे गहन वैज्ञानिक शोधों को AIIMS की रिसर्च टीम ने भी प्रमाणित किया है। पूरी टीम को हार्दिक धन्यवाद। नाम -अजित जैन , दिल्ली"
