Meditation has been an integral part of all spiritual systems. Various techniques have been developed and taught for the correct practice of meditation. Yet, it is only when the practice transcends the technique and becomes the experience, that the realization can be complete
Meditation is all about learning to ‘see’.
To understand truth beyond subjective interpretations
Attention between eyebrows, let mind be before thought.
Let form fill with breath essence, to the top of the head and there shower as light.
In meditation, your mind is not asleep or dreaming. It is relaxed, clear and inwardly focused
Roam about until exhausted and then, dropping to the ground, in this dropping be whole.
How to Meditate
Meditation is a skill of conscious, sustained attention. You already have part of this skill. Except that you tend to use it more to focus on what worries and stresses you than the more positive aspects of your life. So, here are a few pointers for meditation:
Begin by learning to focus on something non-threatening. This will relax you, break your stress response, and will pave the way for meditation.
Choose a time when you are not likely to be disturbed. Concentrate on a subject that appeals to you—it could be a flower, a word, or the flame of a candle.
Notice how your thoughts wander. Don`t attempt to control them. Observe them with detachment.
Within a few weeks, you will notice a marked difference in your capacity to focus. This is the stepping stone to awareness.
Place your whole attention in the nerve, delicate as the lotus thread,in the centre of your spinal column. In such be transformed.
At the point of sleep, when the sleep has not yet come And the external wakefulness vanishes, At this point Being is revealed.
Today, meditation has been accepted as an effective remedy for stress and stress-related disorders.
Bathe in the centre of sound, As in the continuous sound of a waterfall. Or, by putting the fingers in the ears, Hear the sound of sounds.
Meditation is not extraneous to our being but an integral part of it. And as long as we treat it as a chore or a disciplinary measure, its truth will elude us
Nirvikalpa samadhi is the complete identification with the universe, where nothing but the awareness remains
