Meditation is an ancient technique to revive your weary soul. It helps you deal effectively with stress and rediscover a sense of profound peace and inner calmness. Meditation is a state of consciousness that can be understood only on a direct, intuitive level. Ordinary experiences are limited by time, space, and the laws of casualty, but the meditative state transcends all boundaries. Meditation is a natural state of consciousness that isn’t learned any more than one learns to sleep.
When the mind becomes one-pointed and steady, it will naturally go beyond the normal mundane awareness into the state referred to as Meditation.
How to Meditate? Sitting down comfortably, spine erect, head straight, hands on the top of the knees, in the lap, or wherever comfortable with eyes closed. For a few moments become aware of the whole body from the top of the head to the tip of the toes. Experience open space within the body. Imagine the whole body to be in the form of a flame. Try to visualize a bright tiny flame or a symbol of preferred deity in front of the closed eyes. See the flame in Chidakasha (the open void space the darkness in the front of the closed eyes). Gradually experience the radiating light of the flame spreading throughout the body, purifying the body, and illuminating each and every part of the body. The whole body becomes one with the light. Each and every cell of the body becomes one with the light. There is no part of the physical body where darkness can exist.
Each and every cell of the body is infused with the light. Experience the whole body in the form of pure light. At first this is a process of imagination and concentration, but a feeling then develops. The body then responds to that feeling and one can actually see the radiance internally. Try to experience and feel that radiance, now within yourself. See yourself internally filled with and externally surrounded by light. Continue to observe yourself in the form of light and mentally repeat the mantra OM with every inhalation and exhalation. With total awareness repeat the mantra internally. Do not miss a single breath and repeat the mantra OM with every inhalation and exhalation.
Merge yourself completely in the repetition of the mantra and the experience of light within. Now inhale deeply and chant OM three times.
