Query: I am
interested in learning meditation.Do you offer postal
Without understanding the true meaning and purport of meditation... no
form of meditation serves any purpose! Why? Why I am being so blunt? I have observed people meditating in a
dimly lit room concentrating on the centre of a small bulb! The benefits... absolutely nil! What after all is
the definition and meaning of meditation?
Meditation in Hindi is termed yoga. And what does yoga mean? Yoga is
derived from the root word Yog which in Hindi stands for synthesis between the two... our soul atman on its
cosmic journey and the super atman... the Parmatman... God Almighty himself! Ever since every soul atman
separated from its source, God Almighty himself... the goal of life for every soul atman remains regaining
its pure pristine original cosmic form at the earliest.
Devoid of all impurities within... every soul atman regains its original
pure pristine form! And how does one negate the dross impurities within! We must always remember it is not
the impurities dross within the human body... but our soul atman that is of importance! It is our soul atman
that is on its cosmic journey and not the human body.
Every soul atman manifests a series of 8.4 million bodies (an earthly
journey of 96.4 million years) to work out its karma... remove the dross impurities within! Within this
period every soul atman is expected to reach the end goal of cosmic life... the 8.4 millionth manifestation!
Right from the first manifestation as a human being... the goal of soul atman remains liberation from the
cycle of birth and death forever.
The purpose of meditation yoga primarily is removing the dross impurities
within! As the impurities dross within the soul atman remove... the human being climbs the spiritual ladder
faster. Lesser the impurities within... higher brackets of life does the human being reach! The moment
complete dross impurities within the soul atman remove... one reaches the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya
jnana) and finally salvation (moksha).
To reach the source of cosmic life, God Almighty himself we need to
concentrate on our breathing process! Who needs breathing... the human being or the soul atman? Lying in the
Shavasana pose of yoga when we deeply concentrate on the breathing process we ultimately realize it is our
soul atman within our heart that requires breathing!
Reaching the source of breathing is the ultimate goal of human life! The
moment human beings realize we are a potential source of energy... the soul atman itself in its cosmic
glory... we realize our true self... our inner self forever! Right from the first manifestation as an amoeba
(single cell formation) to the form of human beings (the highest manifest stage in the cosmic life cycle) the
goal of soul atman remains liberation from the cycle of birth and death forever.
It is only in the human form the soul atman regains its original pure
pristine form... never otherwise! As a human being to meditate... conduct yoga and reach the source of
breathing is the essence of meditation yoga! Every form of yoga meditation primarily indulges in taking
control of the breathing process... understanding it in its entirety!
It is only through the path of breathing one reaches the source of
breathing... our soul atman within! Following this path of yoga meditation does not require any postal
teaching. Lying in the Shavasana pose of yoga one must practice Neti (not this, not this) as preached and
advocated by Maharishi Ramana. We may or may not desire traveling the spiritual path now.
Yet... elevating self on the path of meditation has its benefits!
Spirituality is never to be feared of! Meditation is part of spirituality... following the inner path... the
inner goal of life! We need not ever fear our soul atman within. The moment one gains enlightenment... the
fear of death permanently vanishes... one for all practical purposes gains immortality!
In the last about 150 years only two persons gained enlightenment... they
were Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana. Reading any literature related to the two is truly
enlightening. The path of meditation yoga is best followed the Ramakrishna Paramhansa or the Maharishi Ramana
For every human being the path of meditation yoga primarily remains
different! Why? Meditation simply does not lay in the various forms of yoga exercises alone. As many human
beings as many forms of meditation yoga can there be. The teachings remaining the same... every student in
class follows the teacher in a different manner!
It is not the teaching imparted that rules the roost... it is the level
of understanding of the student that plays the vital role! In whatever stage of life one may be... we can
meditate and enhance self on the spiritual path! Those indulging in materialistic pursuits of life need not
meditate in any manner.
Meditation is directly linked to our inner world... the world of our soul
atman within! The sweet small inner voice of our soul atman that seems to come from within our heart must
become our guide in the journey of life. By remaining absolutely truthful... one can distinctly hear the
voice of our soul atman that always guides us on the right path.
While meditating whenever we tend to go wrong... the sweet small inner
voice of our soul atman always prompts us on the right path! In the journey of life we are never alone. God
Almighty in minuscule form is present within us as our soul atman. Our soul atman is the primal source of
life... the form of human beings simply being a garb for the soul atman within!
Think seriously... think of our relationship as a human being with our
soul atman. What is our relationship with God Almighty? Why were we born a human being? What is our ultimate
goal of life? What is our relationship with insects, animals and plants! We would ultimately realize that
different forms of manifestation are nothing but small sojourns in the life of our soul atman!
Our soul atman is on a cosmic journey of 96.4 million earthly years...
that constitutes a single span of life in the life of soul atman! In the human form alone we have 1.1 million
manifestations (an earthly journey of 12.4 million years) to reach the stage of enlightenment and salvation.
We may desire or not... every human being indulges in meditation yoga at a certain stage of life!
Who knows what we shall be in the next manifestation... why not travel
the spiritual path now!
I again repeat... so much literature is available freely world over and
particularly in India... proper meditation yoga can easily be conducted simply by concentrating our energies
on our breathing process. The most vital ingredient on the path of spirituality and meditation yoga is
remaining truthful all along! Practicing truthfulness in its entirety is the most difficult aspect of human
May God bless you!
