The Microcosm and …The human being

Meditating with a mantra helps the mind to reach the deeper layers

Page 30: Yoga

Regular practice is a must to attain progress in Meditation.

How does meditation affects the society?

By expanding the mind the feeling of Universalism is awakened.

The feeling of closeness with everyone and everything.

Meditation changes the individual psychology and the social psychology.

Page 32: Yoga

Social Psychology

To build a society, there are two distinct psychologies.

One is service psychology, which inspires people to promote collective interest.

Page 33: Yoga

The second is group psychology, which only tries to promote the limited interest of a small group.

Page 34: Yoga

Those who are guided by group psychology want to establish the authority of their group and impose their interests on others.

This leads to inter-personal and inter-group conflict.

Page 35: Yoga

Only the psychology of service, the synthetic approach leads to unity and cohesion amongst numerous individuals and groups.

Page 36: Yoga

What is the best psychology?

• The idea to promote the welfare of the universe.

Page 37: Yoga

Human society

…is one and…


Page 38: Yoga

For psychic progress and to make the mind light we take the idea of “Universal welfare”…

And for Self-Realization we meditate on the Universal Consciousness with the help of a Mantra.

This is the formula of the path of bliss.
