It is an amazing text to discover all encompassing human potential in one’s own self.

What is Dhaarana? Dhaarana is a power of the mind to hold on to something singularly, to the exclusive of everything in a state of complete absorption in the object of inner concentration. Dhaarana is a process of seeing and not thinking, by which "mindful awareness" or CHETANA, dominates and illumines the inner chambers of one's brain circuits. Dhaarana culminates in Dhyana to experience a free flow of consciousness. The Tantric symbols utilized for Dhaarana are Mantra the mystic sounds, Yantra – a geometric diagram representing these mystic sounds, and Mandala – the three dimensional form of the mantra and the yantra. The science of Mantra, Yantra and Mandala, is based on the science of sound, form and light, to create precise energy patterns inside the human body and Mind.
