Dharana Darshan includes as yet unpublished classic meditation practices derived from the Upanishads, the Tantras and other traditional yogic texts. The core of the book is Swami Niranjanananda's adaptation of the complex upanishadic akasha (space) dharanas for modern practitioners, including chidakasha, hridayakasha, daharakasha and vyoma panchaka dharanas, along with advanced stages of the classic ajapa japa and trataka practices. Also included is an introduction explaining the theory and purpose of concentration, psychic symbol, visualization, and the obstacles commonly encountered by practitioners.

This book is designed for those already familiar with the fundamentals of meditation and have a degree of mastery in the pratyahara (sensory withdrawal) practices.
