The pilot study opens up prospects for future research to scientifically validate the teachings of Sant-Mat and Ra-Dha-Sva-Aah-Mi Faith

Monmouth County, New Jersey Feb 22, 2023 ( - Dayalbagh Educational Institute is an educational institution located at Dayalbagh in Agra. The institute has been given deemed university status by the University Grants Commission of India in 1981. 

Consciousness is considered to be the final frontier of science. Scientific measurement of the experiential states of consciousness is a highly challenging task that is being attempted by scientists using advanced neuroimaging techniques that include, EEG, Meg, and fMRI. It is not proper to influence and disturb the meditator during measurement and hence non-invasive technique is required for measurements. Recently, infrared thermography (IRT) has been used to study meditation as it is a non-invasive, simple, and cost-effective technique that gives the temperature variation of the object that is studied, which is called a thermogram. It had been shown recently with IRT, that mindfulness meditation and g-tummo Tibetan meditation result in an increase in the temperature of the forehead and full body respectively.

In the doctoral research work carried out by Ms. Rosy Parmar at the Department of Physics and Computer Science, Dayalbagh Educational Institute, Agra, India, under the supervision of Dr. Dayal Pyari Srivastava and Prof. Sukhdev Roy, the effect of Surat-Shabda-Yoga (Ultra-Transcendental Meditation) on the psycho-physiological states of consciousness of children, short-term meditators and long-term meditators has been studied using Infra-Red Thermography. It has been shown that it leads to a larger increase in the temperature of the tip of the fingers, palms, and the position of the third-eye, and that too in a relatively shorter time.

An important finding from the IRT imaging is that the temperature of the nostrils decreases during Surat-Shabda-Yoga meditation and becomes low indicating that the breathing has become very light and the meditator is in a higher state of consciousness. Controlling breathing to attain higher states of consciousness by yogic practices, is the fundamental exercise which is carried out in the age-old practice of pranayama, which is easily achieved by Surat-Shabda-Yoga meditation on Ra-Dha-Sva-Aah-Mi name and contemplation on the form of the living Sant Satguru.
The study also shows that other physiological parameters that include, blood pressure, oxygen level, and pulse rate also get regulated and stabilized with Surat-Shabda-Yoga meditation. A psychometric study using MBTI and CQI psychometric tests has also been carried out that shows that Surat-Shabda-Yoga has a strong transformative effect on the subjects.

The pilot study opens up exciting prospects for future research using multi-modal techniques align with IRT, involving larger group of subjects and with more advanced equipment to scientifically validate the wisdom of the Eastern Saints and their teachings of Sant-Mat and Ra-Dha-Sva-Aah-Mi Faith. The PhD Thesis was awarded the PhD degree during the 41st Convocation of the Dayalbagh Educational Institute, Agra, India on February 18, 2023.
