"DHYANA-MANO-PRASTHAN" - SPIRITUAL WING
THE SPIRITUAL CENTER
'Dhyan' means concentration and contemplation with the view of minimizing thoughts and 'Prasthan' means evolutionary ascendancy with progress degree by degree. Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan is achievement of 'Manoprasthan' (The Ascension of Mind) through 'Dhyanaprasthan'. The mind through the process of meditation, by undergoing spiritualization in an indirect method, obtains the status of soul is what that is proved in Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan. The easy and accessible path, to reach the position of "Spirituality" from the "Materiality" of mind and body is, Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan.
Through the practice of Ascent Dhyana (by means of Asana - Pranayama - Dhyana), the ascension of physical (sensuous) mind (self) itself, in the direction of conscience, by transmutation of the same (Physical Mind) to the Spiritual Soul - thereafter Divine Soul - Universal Soul - Supreme Soul - until the origin of origin of universe (The Mother Universe/Divine Mother), is Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan.
Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan is the practical division affiliated to "Science Universe". Guruji has established Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan with spiritual consciousness and spirit for spiritual performances, and for Manoprasthan and Jnanaprasthan. Guruji establishes 'Divine Energy' at these centers and performs either directly or through Mediums.

TEMPLE OF THE 'MOTHER UNIVERSE' (VISWA MATA MANDIR)
According to Guruji, the origin of universe is the Mother Universe (Universal Nucleus/Mother Nucleus/Divine Nucleus). Everything in this universe is the manifestation of the Universal Energy emitted from this 'Zero Based Nucleus'. Probably, none of us can visualize the origin of universe, the Mother Universe, but Guruji can. The temple of Mother Universe is the establishment of the Mother Universe at a physical location in a different (objective) form representing the Mother Universe. There will be continuous flow of "Divine Energy" into this temple.
Asana - Inhalation - Exhalation - Meditation (AIEM) Centers (Sadhana Shibhirs)
The organization conducts spiritual practice sessions called 'AIEM' centers. These are conducted on every alternate weekends and other holidays when there is no spiritual performance of Guruji at Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan. The volunteers of the organization are involved in conducting these programs. The activities at these sessions include but, not limited to, teaching:
- Why to practice yoga?
- How to practice yoga?
- What Asanas are recommended for different age groups?
- How to practice (controlled breathing) Pranayama?
- How to practice meditation?
- Introduction to and discussion of Guruji’s subject
The prime purpose of these sessions is to inculcate the concept of 'Dhyan' in a detailed sense (including practice), which is not possible during the regular spiritual activities at Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan. By the end of the session we expect that all the participants accurately learn how to practice yoga, 'Pranayama' and meditation, and put them in regular practice once they leave the session making them as a part of their life.

AAROGYAPRASTHAN (Divine Healing)
'Divine (Energy) Healing' is one of the most important activities at Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan by Guruji. If needed, Guruji provides Divine Healing for patients residing at distant places even if they don't meet Guruji physically at Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan. 'Divine Healing' is the method used by Guruji to treat ailments, whether it be functional and/or organic. Guruji makes an accurate diagnosis and treats (by means of Divine Energy) all kinds of disorders, pertaining to both physical and mental health.
As the name suggests Aarogyaprasthan has two components, "Aarogyam" (scientific) means health, and "Prasthan" (spiritual) means ascendancy. "Aarogyaprasthan" is basically the combination of both 'Divine Healing' done by Guruji, and 'medical treatment' given by the medical professionals. According to Guruji, while "Aarogyam" is the component that has to be taken care of by the physicians, volunteers and the patients themselves, "Prasthan" is taken care of by Guruji. Both the components have equal responsibility and participation for the sake of both the individual health and the public health. This is how both the science and spirituality must work in a coordinate and cooperate fashion for the betterment of the society, not only in the healthcare sector but in others too. Guruji, with His medical team, has created "Medical Miracles" by means of Divine Healing.
The ultimate goal of Guruji is to combine 'Divinity' (Guruji's Divine Energy) and 'Science' (Allopathic Treatment) when needed, and make use of the same for both accurate diagnosis and treatment of all kinds of disorders, and make them available within the reach of the common man. Chronic debilitating, and untreatable disorders of economic and social burden in general, and diseases related to Heart, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes Mellitus and Hypertension in particular are the prime focus of the organization. The goal of the organization is to minimize, and ultimately eliminate these disorders, and make people free of them. Guruji says that diseases like HIV/AIDS and cancers can also be treated to some extent by means of Divine Healing, better than the treatment delivered by the existing medical sciences.
There are innumerable cases where people are completely treated of chronic disorders like Hypertension, Diabetes Mellitus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Heart Diseases and untreatable disorders like Cancers. And, the patients are now on no allopathic medication. There are also incidents where major surgical interventions have been averted and the existing conditions have been treated through Divine Healing. Guruji says that the Divine Healing is more effective when one meditates regularly.
Guruji conducts Aarogyaprasthan at Spiritual Centers on a particular day of the week/month where He dedicates the entire time for the treatment of patients/illnesses.
Note: "Asana - Pranayama - Dhyana" is a very important component in Aarogyaprasthan. Guruji radiates Divine Energy to every individual who meditates; that would keep the individual healthy (Dedication in Meditation is Medication). Guruji says one can receive the energy radiated by Him very easily if one meditates constantly.

- Ladies (including their family members), during their menstrual period (6 days), should not attend Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan, the reason being, Guruji establishes Mother Universe in the form of force, and Divine Mother is the Supreme. They can attend DhyanaManoPrasthan on seventh day. When impinged with other kinds of filthiness also, one should not come until they get over the same.
- On the day of visiting Dhyanaprasthan, one has to consume only vegetarian food. One should not consume alcoholic beverages and smoke. It is best if one can come complete fasting, or with at least no solid food consumption for two hours before coming to Dhyanaprasthan (try to attend Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan with empty stomach). Both, moderate hunger and moderate exhaustion helps one get good concentration.
- Self-discipline helps rather than code of law. So, please follow the spiritual and customary formalities. Kindly maintain "pin drop" silence in meditation hall to create the atmosphere of peace and harmony. If you feel it is necessary, kindly leave the meditation hall, complete the conversation and re-enter the hall. Kindly, enforce strict self-discipline during your presence in meditation hall. It is a request that all devotees have to maintain discipline and cooperate for the conduct of activities at Dhyanaprasthan.

- Thereafter, Mass Meditation would be practiced. Only those who participate in Mass Meditation would have eligibility to meet Guruji.
- Guruji conducts group discussions during Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan sessions intended for JnAnaprasthan.

- At the end of interview, Guruji will give you 'PrasAda' (includes sugar crystals, fruit, and turmeric powder). Please ask the volunteers to know how the PrasAda is to be consumed. Guruji stores energy in each one of those before giving it to the devotees. It is very important to consume, especially, turmeric in a disciplined fashioned, because it is intended to bring some changes, which may take the individual in the path of spirituality, and thus helpful in causing to practice meditation. However, mere consumption of turmeric power will not bring-in miraculous changes in life. Meditation is the only way one can bring changes in their life.
- Before leaving Dhyana-Mano-Prasthan, kindly, write your experiences in writing in the book intended for that only, or electronically after you leave DhyanaManoPrasthan.
