This page introduces the Online 121 Art of Dhyāna Modular Student Study Programme. As the student progresses through the interlinked and developmental Modules they will experience in-depth learning in all areas of Dhyāna practice and Dhyāna study theory.

The outcome will be the ability to independently and intelligently choose, adapt and ultimately self-develop and self-refine our personal Dhyāna Sādhana in the fields of Dhyāna practice and Dhyāna study theory.
