How to Meditate Meditation Techniques What is Yoga Meditation

Query: Could you tell me what to experience through varoious Meditation techniques, from Taoist standpoint without Religion in the background.

Vijay Kumar:
Before delving into the bottomless pit of Meditation I would like to clarify and discuss upon Religion and Spirituality at large.

Continued from... Religion and Spirituality Meditation Techniques

Having explained the terms Religion and Spirituality in detail, now I shall elaborate upon the meaning of Meditation and its importance in daily life.

In Hinduism Meditation is defined as Yoga. Rather Meditation is a word coined much later and what initially existed was the word Yoga. and what does Yoga mean? Yoga is derived from the word "Yog"... and Yog in Hinduism means literally the + sign. As we say it in Hindi that 2 yog 2 means 4. Simply adding two plus two, which equals four. In the cosmic domain yog stands for the attempt of atman soul to combine with Parmatman (Brahman, God Almighty Creator).

Ever since the Big Bang occurred... every atman soul makes an attempt to comeback to its cosmic glory the earliest possible... the original pristine pure form but it cannot do so on its own. It needs a body to work out its Karma... pass through a life span of 96.4 million years and a total of 8.4 million manifestations.

This is similar as one KG of iron in a hundred KG of iron ore cannot purify itself and come out of its own. We need the right mining machinery to drain out the 99% impurities and it is only after that we can expect to see one KG of iron (the purified Atman soul, the soul) in its cosmic glory. The removal of 99% impurities... the dross within... requires an atman soul to manifest again and again... a total of 8.4 million manifestations and a life span of 96.4 million years.

The process of purification... when this lump of hundred KG of iron ore gets reduced to 86 KG... then 75... then 50... and finally one KG of pure iron. For this Karma to happen every human being requires meditating and following austere practices so that the dross within can be removed and our atman the soul within proceeds on its cosmic journey at a faster pace. The effort of atman the soul within to regain its pristine pure form prompts the physical form... the form of a human being to proceed faster so that the goal can be achieved early and in this process the human being is required to meditate. Meditation propels one to remove the dross within faster and gain more and more of Spiritual purity.

and how do you meditate! Is it merely sitting in a dark room concentrating on the center of a small lit bulb... trying to block (rather still) our thoughts... no it is not like that. I have seen people engaging not for years but decades in various forms of Meditation without even ever trying to understand the true meaning of Meditation. Unless we know what Meditation means... how can we even think of practicing it!

Whenever we try to go wrong... the small sweet inner voice always tries to prompt us towards the right path... is it not a form of Meditation for our atman the soul within cannot but afford wastage of precious time by its physical manifest form (the form of a human being). Most Human Beings tend to ignore the promptings of atman the soul within and continue with their lives basing their decisions more on ego than our atman the soul within. This is where we falter... for our ego tends to keep us submerged in the sensual surroundings of the five senses and we forget the true goal of life!

Meditation does not mean sitting anywhere closing our eyes and concentrating on nothing or trying to focus on the various faces of gods. We shall never achieve anything by this process... Meditation truly means cutting across all the queries within us forever... the sooner the queries dissolve... we shall one day come face-to-face with God... reach the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi (the stage of nothingness)... the culmination of all that we call Spiritual. Nirvikalpa Samadhi is the stage when we have almost crossed over the physical barrier of life... we have gained absolute control over our five senses and finally the straying mind.

To control the numerous thoughts entering our brain every moment of life is the most difficult to achieve. Gaining absolute control over the mind is possible after we have gained absolute control of senses. The sooner the control is established over the five senses... we are easily able to establish our control over the numerous thoughts entering our brain. The moment we reach the stage when the flow of inconsistent thoughts stops forever it is known as the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi... here we come across face-to-face with God Almighty in all its cosmic glory.

I just but find no words to describe this stage as only after gaining control of senses do we reach the stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi. The stage of Nirvikalpa Samadhi is much beyond the comprehension of senses. It is the final culmination of all that is the Spiritual... one has reached the end of cosmic life. Having crossed the threshold of 8.4 million manifestations the journey as a human being comes to an end. One gains enlightenment... becomes a Mahavira, Buddha, Christ or a Mohammed.

The correct mode of Meditation is lying in the Shavasana pose (the dead form) and practicing Neti (not this, not this). This was the path taken by Maharishi Ramana... it is a wonderful means of Meditation... I was lucky that God guided me on this path inherently. What is a Shavasana pose... how it can be practiced and what we exactly mean by Neti can be asked of any Yoga master. The definitions of these is also available here- Shavasana - Nirvikalpa Samadhi - Silence... the talk within

To practice Neti as it is intended to be is the shortest path of Meditation for realizing God... gaining enlightenment? So many Mantras to be followed... how can I surmise all of them here. Some are even forbidden by God not to be disclosed to a normal human being.

It shall be around three years from now that I shall rise above the present mortal plane after my family consisting of my wife and two lovely daughters settle down and I am on my own to serve the community more freely. Only then I shall be able to disclose to the world community... a glimpse of the cosmic truth.

As on date there is not one human being present on Mother Earth who can assimilate the total meaning of my words... but there has got to be one who is awaiting me with abated breath... one who shall be able to understand all what I have to communicate before leaving this mortal frame. I have been waiting since 1993 to leave my body but my family does not permit it. My job already having been done... I have but to spread the fragrance of the cosmic wisdom so that the common masses can benefit out of it. The time is not yet ripe for it.

Whether it is the Jainism, Buddhism, Taoism or Confucianism way of Meditation... the prime goal of all is the same. What I have narrated about is the correct mode and procedure for conducting Meditation.

God bless you!
