 Dharna means to think yourself to a part of the supreme soul. Its a part of meditation only. In my own brother’s words 😍 dharna is the concentration of the object of meditation it means you try to think of that object and resembles all its features. For example, take Krishna as an object and feel yourself be Krishna and slowly you will generate all the qualities of Krishna.
