the process through which one removes all the clutter in the brain
(not mind). Lesser the thoughts invoked... better is the concentration!
The ultimate stage of meditation is reaching the stage of Nirvikalpa
Samadhi... the stage of nothingness... when everything becomes still...
one can have a dialogue with God Almighty on one-to-one basis!
the path... the process for a seeker of spirituality. Meditation
leads to inner calm... inner peace... removes anxiety, stresses
and tensions of day-to-day life! Breathing in the Shavasana pose
of yoga is the best form of meditation. Concentrating on breathing...
who needs what... using the 3 ~ 5 or 5 ~ 8 modes... one finally
reaches the source of breathing!
It is our soul
atman... the spirit within that has manifested the human form to
work out its karma... Remove the dross impurities within. Our soul
atman that seems to reside within our heart... needs pure oxygen
to survive! Lying in the Shavasana pose of yoga when we concentrate
on inhaling and exhaling rhythmically... we develop perfect focus
than meditation is having a goal in life. Having a goal in life
is journey half covered. In absence of a goal life is like a rudderless
boat going round and round in the ocean. Having a goal in life...
pursuing it with the bulldog determination of Winston Churchill
with all eggs in one basket is what life is all about!
Unless we have
a goal in life... what can be the purpose of meditation? For a seeker
of spirituality meditation yoga simply is the means... a path to
reach God at the earliest. Lying in the Shavasana pose of yoga...
practicing Neti (not this, not this) as preached and advocated by
Maharishi Ramana, I finally realized God in 1993 at 37 years of
the end of spiritual pursuit... meditation carries no further meaning
for me. I have reached the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last
in the cosmic life cycle! Religion is not concerned with meditation
but spirituality is.
