The science of psychology, as studied and practised within the traditions of Yoga and Tantra, begins with our chakras (or plexi, psycho-spiritual centres) and the various glands associated with each chakra. The development of these structures is influenced by all our past actions and by a range of environmental factors that, like the mind itself, go far beyond what is conventionally contemplated by psychology. Shrii Shrii Anandamuirti explains and enhances this science.
By performing Asanas regularly, human beings can control the propensities attached to each chakra, and hence the thoughts which arise in their minds, and their behaviour. Alldsanas have either a pressurizing or depressurizing effect on the glands and sub-glands. If someone has a great fear of public speaking, it means his or her manipura chakra is weak Through the regular practice of maytirdsana [peacock posture], this propensity will be controlled and fear will be eliminated.
