Correct method of Meditation
(how to meditate)


Meditation is the English equivalent of Yog (in Hindi) and pronounced yoga in the West. For understanding the meaning and the correct method of meditation... we need to understand the real meaning behind the word Yog (in Hindi).

Yog that also means plus is the attempt of the soul (atman in Hinduism) to merge with the mighty soul... the God Almighty himself! As two plus two equals four... in Hindi two Yog two equals four! Ever since every soul (atman) got separated from God Almighty... it desires to Yog back with mighty soul, God Almighty himself (Parmatman in Hinduism).

True meditation is an attempt by the bodily form to speed up this merger between soul and mighty soul at the earliest. Any form of meditation nee yoga that leads one towards the ultimate goal of life... gaining salvation and freeing our soul atman within from the bondage of manifesting life again and again is the truest form of meditation (yoga).

Any form of yoga meditation that leads one towards instilling the senses and the mind... Leads one straight towards Nirvikalpa Samadhi! In fact, culmination of all forms of yoga meditation is reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi. And what is Nirvikalpa Samadhi?

Nirvikalpa Samadhi is the stage when one having conquered all the five senses and the mind reaches the stage of nothingness. Practicing Neti as advocated by Maharishi Ramana is the best form of meditation. It leads one directly towards God. Practicing Neti means negating the presence of everything in the Cosmos that is not God Almighty! Ultimately when everything gets negated... we come face-to-face with God Almighty.

Gaining control of the five senses and the mind is a tough task. It is indeed almost impossible. But for the truest seekers of spirituality nothing is impossible. Having absolute faith in God Almighty is an absolute ingredient on the path of spirituality. Without absolute faith in Almighty God... nothing much can be achieved on the spiritual plane.

Does this mean that atheists do not realize god. Yes, the truth is so! Atheists do not believe in the existence of God. They do believe in the existence of a higher power. Whatever be the definition of God... we must never negate the presence of God Almighty of which our soul atman within our heart is an integral part.

As our soul atman present within our heart being the real truth of life... the presence of God Almighty also cannot be negated. We may or may not believe the cosmos being created by God Almighty but to travel the spiritual path... belief in God is a must! Non believers of God Almighty continue living a mundane life... Bereft of the essential grace of God, a necessary input on the path towards God, they remain wherever they are.

If we can feel the presence of a flower by its smell... we also need to believe in the existence of God as we experience his grace in day-to-day matters of life. God Almighty does not have a Sakaar form (a physical existence). It is Nirakaar in nature (without a form). We recognize God Almighty by the presence of a soul atman residing in our heart.

Every soul atman residing in our heart is of the same essence as Almighty God. It is just that it is minuscule in nature. If an independent soul atman is a grain of sand... the whole mound is God Almighty.

In Bhagavad Gita, the sacred doctrine put forward by Lord Krishna in Mahabharata... the definition of God has been given thus, "the sum total of all purified souls atmans in the cosmos at a given point of time is what we call God Almighty". Amazingly... this sum total of all purified souls atmans in the cosmos totals half the size of a thumb. Bhagavad Gita is absolutely clear on that.

To negate the presence of God is negating our own presence. For every true seeker of spirituality... to gain enlightenment without belief in God Almighty is just not possible. Stated in other words, non believers in the existence of Moon never reach moon.

Meditation simply does not mean sitting in a quite darkened room and focusing our energies on the centre of a small lit bulb... never knowing where to go further! Yoga meditation is lying down in Shavasana pose of yoga and practicing Neti as practiced by Maharishi Ramana. If we find that the dross within is diminishing... we are on the right path of yoga meditation.

In a lump of hundred KG of iron ore... if we have 1 kg of pure iron... then we need to remove 99 KG of impurities to separate one KG of pure iron. And for separating one KG of pure iron from 99 KG impurities... we require a chain of 98.4 million manifestations. Only then our soul atman (one KG of pure iron) comes back to its original pure pristine form. The

Meditation yoga is all about removing 99 per cent impurities from hundred KG of iron ore so that our atman soul (one KG of pure iron) can come back to its original pristine pure form. And this can be achieved by gaining control over the five senses and the mind by practicing celibacy and following the path of Neti.

Apart from practicing celibacy, yoga meditation involves getting out of the clutches of Prarabdha karma. To eradicate sins of all the previous lives... we need to absolve ourselves in totality from the clutches of Prarabdha karma. Absolute control over the five senses and the mind can only be experienced after we have completely absolved ourselves from the sins of past lives.

And how do we absolve ourselves clear of the sins of the past lives. It is by chanting the mantra related to Prarabdha karma. The essence of the mantra related to Prarabdha karma is, "it cuts across the shackles of the karma of past lives in totality". No residual balance of karma of past lives to tackle... one easily gains the seat of Nirvikalpa Samadhi.

Whatever karma we perform in our present life... good or bad... we can absolve ourselves of the ill effects by proper meditation and chanting of requisite mantra. But what of the accumulated negative residual karma of past lives. How to come out of its clutches forever? The sacred mantra that absolves one of the clutches of the sins of past lives shall be delivered to the mankind at the right opportune moment.

Pure meditation is indulging in acts that bring us nearer to God Almighty. The crux of cosmic life is that God Almighty has ordained a maximum journey of 96.4 million earthly years (8.4 million manifestations) to clear 99 per cent impurities ingrained within our soul atman. The moment one KG of pure iron is separated from 99 KG of impurities... one gains enlightenment (Kaivalya Jnana) and finally salvation (moksha in Hinduism).

To proceed on the path of pure spirituality within this life or not is the sole prerogative of every human being. It is better we start early!
