Psycho-analysis may help in exposing
10-20 % of the past before the patient's consciousness,
meditation however if done regularly, will expose 100%
before him, thus this is the only technique that promises
the full liberation from bondages of ego or antahkarna..
Psycho-analysis primarily focuses on
the search for the final goal, in doing so, it blocks
freedom and happiness, as in obsessions. Meditation on
the other hand removes all obsessions, hence brings freedom
In Psycho-analysis, there is a significant
role of transference and counter- transference, where
as in meditation, there is no role of the same.
Psycho-analysis is time consuming and
expensive to undertake, where as meditation does not involve
any expenditure, as one has not to purchase time from
the analyst and can practice mediation in their own surrounding
and time, after having mastered the art (Goel, 1993).
