The in-depth understanding and insightful analysis of this fact by the —iÌis had given rise to the philosophies of ‘Brah® Darïana’, ‘Atma Jó³na’, ‘Tatra Jó³na’, ‘Atra Jó³na’, ‘Vyavah³ra Jó³na’, etc and hence to the gamut of the ancient scriptures of Indian Philosophy and Culture. Without self-recognition, a human being does not really understand the origin and purpose of his life, its dignity and duties. Like a child gets attracted towards every toy and every new scene and remains engrossed in unnecessary activities, a grownup person also, throughout his life, remains involved in the aspirations and actions which are triggered by the agile mind and the passions of the other sense organs.

The soaha® pr³ñ³y³ma is an excellent auto-suggestive experiment of psychology. After making an attempt to exhale all the weaknesses and sins with each breath, the s³dhaka indeed feels extremely relaxed and gets peace of mind. The feeling of receiving the mah³pr³ña with a breath increases his inner strength and deepens his ïraddh³ and self-confidence, which in turn become the motive force for the ascetic control of his body and mind and the source for his psychological and spiritual enlightenment.

The spiritual charge of up³san³ and s³dhan³ removes the mists of ignorance that shrouded it. The inner self is then purified and enlightened as an eternal reflection of divinity. The emotional power of the s³dhaka used in the advaita bh³va of the soaha® s³dhan³ awakens and elevates the state of the soul to revive its original glory and its unity with the Brah® begins to reflect in the s³dhaka’s personality. Without the emotional depth, motivation and mental concentration, the feelings and meditations associated with the soaha® s³dhan³ would be like ‘mere imaginations’ or ‘mental-amusement and diversion’ or ‘day dreaming’, and would not show any sign of progress.
