Daily Dose for the Soul

Each one of us is a master of infinite possibilities at a universal scale. Meditation is to experience your own magnificence, it is to live your potential. It is a state where joy and peace flows from every action you perform, every work you utter, every thought you contemplate. There are no shortcuts. The only way to taste the fruits of meditation is to do it right, to do it properly.

The ultimate bliss and beauty you experience upon reaching the final stage of meditation has been given various names including the awakening of the kundalini, samadhi, nirvikalapa samadhi, even nirvana, and so on. In this stage of perfection called trance, or samadhi, one’s mind is completely restrained from material mental activities by practice of yoga. This perfection is characterised by one’s ability to see the self by the pure mind and to relish and revive in the self. In that joyous state, one is situated in boundless transcendental happiness, realised through transcendental senses. Established thus, one never departs from the truth, and upon gaining this he thinks there is no greater gain. Being situated in such a position, one if never shaken, even in the midst of the greatest difficulty. This indeed is actual freedom from all miseries arising from material conflict.

From Bhagwad Gita, “O Krishna, says Arjuna, you talk about the equanimity of mind. To tell you the truth, I don’t think its practical or feasible. mind if so powerful and wayward that I can imagine containing air by creating a vacuum with my arrows, but I can’t possibly tame my mind so it thinks, acts and behaves the way I want it to.”

      Meditation is the art (and science) of making the mind still. Only when the turbulent thought waves are calmed down is one able to go beyond normal dimensions of consciousness. There are many different methods of meditation. However, the goal of most all meditations is the same; to make the mind and body still. Bliss meditation, being simple yet powerful, can be practiced by anyone to be in Ekatvam, in Oneness with their Higher Self.
