Gurudeva explains how he views physical problems as resulting from subconscious congestions, attachments and unresolved experiences. He prescribes the vasana daha tantra, subconscious purification through fire, the principle of which even modern science is admitting the benefits of.

I've experienced reincarnation without losing my identity. I experience my identity that goes through the string of beads. And I never became the bead totally. Many people experience reincarnation asone bead and then another bead and then another bead. I experience it as a thread.
