A Study on Improving Physiological and Psychological Personalities of the Students by Vethathiri Maharishi’s Nine-Center Meditation using Electroencephalography

A. Raj Kumar, G.R. Valliamal


The Nine-center Meditation of Simplified Kundalini Yoga was formulated by Sage Vethathiri Maharishi to improve the functions of endocrine glands. It involves the following centers: Mooladhara, Swadhistana, Manipuraga, Anahatha, Visuddhi, Agna, Thuriya, Shakthi Kalam and Shiva Kalam. Meditation is done on all the nine centers, seven of which are endocrine glands located within the physical body and Shakthi Kalam, Shiva Kalam are Universal field and Absolute space, respectively. Meditation commences at Mooladhara Chakra; followed by meditation on each of other chakras and concludes when the mind merges with Absolute space. Mind is a magnetic wave with self-rotating movement. The speed of mind is measured in terms of mental frequency. Scientists have discovered through the use of Electro Encephalograph (EEG) that the mind works at frequencies ranging from 1–40 cycles/sec. To prove the research concept, forty four students of two different schools pursuing 11th standard were selected and chosen one as experimental group and another one as controlled group. The former group alone underwent and practiced the Nine-Centre Meditation for six months. The Mind frequencies of the students of both groups were measured by EEG test in Vethathiri Maharishi’s Kundalini Yoga research centre and their BMI (Body Mass Index), pulse rate, blood pressure were measured by a medical officer in the centre. After six month regular practice of the Nine-Centre Meditation, the former group of students progressed well compared to the later in the following: increase in BMI, academic marks, harmony in relation with parents, teachers, friends and decrease in pulse rate, blood pressure and mind frequencies. The Nine-Centre Meditation regulates and promotes the functions of the endocrine glands and mind so that streamline and uplift physiological and psychological functions of humans especially student community very rapidly.
