‘ ‘ध्यान’ – ‘तन’ और ‘मन’ से ही नहीं, ‘आत्मा’ से भी करना चाहिए।’

‘ ‘Dhyan’ – kewal ‘tann’ aur ‘mann’ se hi nahi , ‘atman’ se bhi karna chahiye …’

Swamiji said …

“Once, on being faced with the question – ‘Tum tedhe kyun khade hote ho?’ ‘तुम टेढ़े क्यों खड़े होते हो?’ – Lord Krishna, answered in his usual mischievous manner, ‘Main toh aisa hi hoon ! Tedha ! Main andar mushkil see hee aata hoon, lekin ek baar agar kisi ke bhitar chala jaata hoon, toh uske baad bahar nahi aa sakta; usey kabhi apne se alag nahi karta hoon!’ ‘मैं तो ऐसा ही हूं! Tedha ! मैं मुश्किल से ही अंदर आता हूं, लेकिन एक बार अगर किसी के भीतर चला जाता हूं, तो उसके बाद बाहर नहीं आ सकता, उसे कभी अपने से अलग नहीं करता हूं!’

“How wonderful must it be for those chosen few who are showered with the divine blessings of ‘Kanha’,’Ishwar’, ‘Allah’, ‘Christ’ इस अद्भुत तरीके से ! And, this is precisely what we should aim for ! ‘Dhyaan’ karte huey humey ‘Bhagwan’ ko apne andar, apni ‘atman’ mein, utaarne ki poori koshish karni chahiye.”

“However, as is in most endeavours of life, things are easier said than done. Success comes not to those who simply wish, but those who develop a burning desire and fan those flames to keep it going. Similarly, those on the path of spirituality must strive to kindle the desire to attain self realisation. Chanting God’s name or one’s ‘Guru mantra’ is no doubt essential and extremely beneficial; but one must learn to push himself beyond, as simply saying the ‘mantras’ mechanically is not enough. We must awaken the ‘jivatman’ from its slumber and motivate it to participate wholeheartedly along with our physical being while meditating.’ Bahut zaroori hota hai – ‘Aatman’ ki ‘chetna’ ko jagana!’ We need to call out to ‘Him’ from the deep recesses of our inner being while yearning for His ‘darshan’.”

” Every precious moment spent in ‘dhyan’ – while meditating on ‘His’ glorious form of our choice, gives us a golden opportunity to understand the divine nature of the ‘spiritual’ path. We understand the importance of meditating not only with our eyes closed and by trying to control a distracted mind that wanders in all directions, but also, by reaching a stage when our ‘atman’ is able to provide us with the insight and strength needed to experience the feeling of being ‘one’ with ‘Him’ – ‘Kyunki inhi kshon ke dauran humey ‘Ishwar’ ka ansh’ hona ka adbhut ehsaas, anubhooti hoti hai !’ “

“ While this is certainly not easy,  the struggle of focussing one’s ‘entire’ being on God must continue.The meaning and significance of each syllable of the sacred ‘guru mantra’ needs to be absorbed by us and every recital of the ‘guru mantra’ must make us aware of the cleansing of the ‘jivatman’ that begins to take place within us. A few, among us, very keen and alert can detect the cleansing process of the ‘ruh’ that sets in motion.The blissful reward of seeking liberation from the cycle of life and death is revealed to us, when our inner being, the ‘jivatman’, allows us to see a vision most beautiful; ‘its’ existence within us in the form of ‘pure’ light ; fascinatingly different from the colourful lights of divinity that we see emitting from our outer being while meditating.”

“ Meditation should not be considered as an ordinary task that is to be accomplished by us within a particular time frame. No. Rather, it is the most valuable ladder that can help us reach God’s abode. It is during those quiet moments when we sit in ‘dhyan mudra’ that we are able to hear our soul speak to us; connecting us, mentally and emotionally, to God and ‘Guru’, and, listen we must to our soul, as it is older than our heart, and wiser than our mind.”

  3. Om Gurudevo Namaha,
    Such a beautiful message.It is so enlightening and encouraging.
    Whatever your wellness interests, you’ll find a wealth of support, knowledge and inspiration from our Experts, Doctors, Professors and celebrities covering all things Mind, Body and Soul.
    Did you know that helping others, without expecting anything in return, is actually good for your health? Most of us believe kindness and generosity are virtuous qualities, and we cheer for those who give time, money or emotional support selflessly. We know it feels good to do or witness a good deed, but behind the goodness is a growing mound of science that shows giving is a great thing for the mind, body and soul.
    Psychologists have a term for that pleasant feeling you get when you give someone a hand. It’s called a “helper’s high,” and it usually leads to a sense of euphoria that may be accompanied by a surge of energy. The emotional benefits usually don’t end there, though; what follows is commonly a lingering feeling of calmness, a mindset that may keep worries from taking hold. Even if you’re getting nothing tangible from a kind act, you’re soaking up some major emotional perks.
    Generosity and similar altruistic pursuits also make their mark on a physical level beyond the general sensation of relaxation. Scientists have determined that acts of goodness are associated with the release of oxytocin – a hormone best known for creating emotional bonds but also linked to heart health. The effect of this cardioprotective compound also extends to reducing harmful free radicals and inflammation in the body, a ripple effect that may reinforce overall wellness and even healthy aging.
    A 2013 study indicated that American adults who volunteer feel emotionally, mentally and physically healthier than their non-volunteering counterparts. Related findings revealed that being a volunteer helps people to better contend with and lessen stress in their lives, as well as connect with others in their community. Another notable trend pointed out by the study is that volunteers tend to be more conscientious of their wellness and are more proactive in their own health care.
    Remarkably, the positive effects of altruism go beyond the giver and the recipient. A recent article pinpointed how kind acts resonate even further when others witness them. Deemed “peak experiences,” these glimpses of compassion — for example, someone helping an injured animal or a child consoling a sad fellow tike — tend to give onlookers a wholehearted feeling of elation, even if they don’t have a direct connection to the situation or are merely watching it on a TV or computer screen.
    Kindness clearly resonates, affecting anyone in its positive radius. The downside? Well, there isn’t one, unless you factor in the disappointing realization that there aren’t more moments of generosity in the world. And in those cases, the solution is easy — perform a new, good act of your own. Those around you will benefit, and so will you.
    Thank You Swamiji for always being there.
    Jai Gurudevo Namaha
