INTRODUCTION This presentation is just a summary of what has been done so far. These researches are only the attempts to document few effects of Vihangam Yoga. None of the medical and psychological tests can claim to measure the complete effects of Vihangam Yoga meditation techniques.

Restful Alertness:

Restful Alertness There is a state of high relaxation during the Vihangam Yoga meditation meaning that the person is not anxious or tensed. There is a high alertness during the meditation, which means he can react efficiently to the task on which he is concentrating. There is state of consciousness which is difficult to interpret scientifically .

Reduction of Negativity :

Reduction of Negativity A series of bad events causes negative thoughts -- It can be far more dangerous that just a thought… We conducted a study on 12 MBBS students who failed in a recent exam. -- All of them had occasional suicidal thoughts . The suicidal tendency was measured using the Becks suicidal ideation scale . One group of students was asked to control their suicidal thoughts and other negative feelings by themselves. Next group of students practiced the first level meditation of Vihangam Yoga for 10 days!

Discussion: Vihangam Yoga is a science even at the philosophical level:

Discussion: Vihangam Yoga is a science even at the philosophical level Karl Popper said…. Any construct which can be tested in a method which falsifies it is scientific His Holiness Sadguru Sadafaldeo Ji Maharaj said….. Yadi Vidhivat tum Sadhan Kariho, Amar lok pahunchaunga So we have a method of testing here- Vidhivat Sadhan………So Vihangam Yoga is scientific even at the philosophical level of science


Conclusion….. Several people who left alcohol after doing Vihangam Yoga meditation were interviewed regarding the reason for leaving alcohol. Some said it is gods grace, some said it is pleasure and happiness that they regained through it A neuroscientist said that it is because of alteration of neurochemicals in brain which resulted in quitting of alcohol


Who among them is right and who is wrong? Actually every one is right. It is just that they are seeing the fact through different perspectives……they are having different frames of references All it depends is on the frame of reference— Sir Albert Einstein Conclusion…..
