When unconscious became conscious this is Samadhi

Where to put our attention during meditation? February 26, 2011


Every incarnation is transformation of Niraakar in Sakaar. If during meditation we put our attention on particular incarnation we can achieve enlightenment.

 

Dhammapada :

21. Out Of The Forest

“Awake
And day and night they watch
And meditate upon their master.

 

Bhagawat gita:

Prashaantaatmaa vigatabheer brahmachaarivrate sthitah;

Manah samyamya macchitto yukta aaseeta matparah.

6:14. Serene-minded, fearless, firm in the vow of a Brahmachari, having controlled the mind,

thinking of Me and balanced in mind, let him sit, having Me as his supreme goal.

Yunjannevam sadaa’tmaanam yogee niyatamaanasah;

Shaantim nirvaanaparamaam matsamsthaamadhigacchati.

6:15. Thus, always keeping the mind balanced, the Yogi, with the mind controlled, attains to

the peace abiding in Me, which culminates in liberation.

Yoginaamapi sarveshaam madgatenaantaraatmanaa;

Shraddhaavaan bhajate yo maam sa me yuktatamo matah.

6:47. And among all the Yogis, he who, full of faith and with his inner self merged in Me,

worships Me, he is deemed by Me to be the most devout.

The King May 7, 2008


A week ago I had a trip to Lion park- Johannesburg. It is a great experience to sense the King so close.

“So one has to understand that you are part and parcel of the heart of the universe.  One thing is essential that you have to be very flexible people.  You have to be flexibility of the heart cells.  Now heart has to pump.  It has to be strong, and surprisingly the lion is your emblem, so you have to have a lion’s heart.  And lion’s heart means he’s not afraid.  He’s the king and he lives like a king, like a lion.  And Leo as in astrology is a man who is extremely generous.  Lion-hearted.  Not afraid of anyone.  There should be no fear.”  – Shri Mataji

 

 

When you see life from within April 21, 2008


Your view of the world and the life that you see,
is totally the opposite of what it appears to be.
It’s not in the real world that we see all the time,
but it’s quietly happening in the back of your mind.

An opportunity is growing …to understanding yourself,
and you can’t even read it from the books on the shelf.
Light enters darkness, when you go that next step.
here’s something unique you must learn to accept.

The world as you see it …that great illusion,
is totally the opposite, and you must reach this conclusion.
You only go outward to get further in,
you only get further, when you see life from within.

 

THE STATE OF STHITAPRAJNA – INTEGRATION STATE April 16, 2008


As you know yoga is union, connection or integration between individual and the collective consciousness. This state was beautifully described in Gita, chapter 2.

54. What, O Krishna, is the description of him who has steady wisdom and is merged in the state of Sthitaprajna? How does one of steady wisdom speak? How does he sit? How does he walk?

55. When a man completely casts off, O Arjuna, all the desires of the mind and is satisfied in the Self by the Self, then is he said to be one of steady wisdom!

56. He whose mind is not shaken by adversity, who does not hanker after pleasures, and who is free from attachment, fear and anger, is called a sage of steady wisdom.

57. He who is everywhere without attachment, on meeting with anything good or bad, who neither rejoices nor hates, his wisdom is fixed.

58. When, like the tortoise which withdraws its limbs on all sides, he withdraws his senses from the sense-objects, then his wisdom becomes steady.

59. The objects of the senses turn away from the abstinent man, leaving the longing (behind); but his longing also turns away on seeing the Supreme.

60. The turbulent senses, O Arjuna, do violently carry away the mind of a wise man though he be striving (to control them)!

61. Having restrained them all he should sit steadfast, intent on Me; his wisdom is steady whose senses are under control.

62. When a man thinks of the objects, attachment to them arises; from attachment desire is born; from desire anger arises.

This description is in compliance with Patanjali’s “Yogas citta vrtti nirodhah”
