| How to Open Your Third Eye
Meditation on Your Third Eye
This meditation is used to unite your attention with your attentional principle. This technique is called Purusa Dhyan meditation. Purusa is the form of consciousness in which you will behold your attentional principle. Dhyan means to meditate, to gaze upon an object of meditation, to unite your attention with that object. In this meditation, your attentional principle is the object of meditation.
The attentional principle consists of four elements: your attention (chittam), vehicles (swarup), the essential form of your attentional principle (purusa), and the wave of consciousness (chetan).
Attention is your mind stuff. Attention is like the cursor on your computer. It determines where you are focusing. By changing this focus you can see different things within. Changing this focus of your attention is called fixation or dharana.
Your attentional principle is encased in several vehicles. When it rises out of its body focus behind the pitiuitary gland center, it travels to higher Planes. These different vehicles allow it to operate in those higher Planes.
This is like when you go deep under the water, you wear a deep sea diving suit. If you go up in the stratosphere, you may have to wear a pressurized flight suit. If you go up into outer space, you will need to wear a space suit. The attentional principle’s vehicles are like these specialized suits that you have to wear when you go into these different environments.
The essential form of your attentional principle is called purusa. When the vehicles of its astral, causal and mental bodies have been put aside, it functions in this essential form.
At its deepest core, your attentional principle is like a wave of consciousness. When you focus at this level, you move from contemplating your attentional principle to being your attentional principle. You identify with it.
In this meditation technique, you will learn how to focus on your attentional principle and open this third eye within you.
