FAQs on meditation

first_imgMeditation is widely discussed and used practice. Originally, with spiritual, philosophical and mystic beginnings, it is now part of daily lifestyle with no region or religious tags. Even with such a prevalent user base, there does not seem to be a single accepted definition and methodology. If we need a veritable source for understanding meditation, where do we look?Lord Krishna, the predominant deity in Hinduism, has answered these in the scripture Bhagavad Gita. Chapter 6 of this prolific text is often called “Yoga of Meditation.” Though not mentioned by name (meditation is called Dhyāna in Sanskrit), it is clear the chapter is about the form of Yoga that helps find inner peace, realise the Self and unite with God. This is meditation.Krishna’s elucidations on “Yoga of Meditation” are paraphrased here in this FAQ. The answers are annotated with the appropriate original verses in Bhagavad Gita. A keen reader may refer to these for cogent explanations. An ample number of original Sanskrit text with word-by-word translation, meanings and commentary are available. This author recommends the writings by Swami Sivananda of Divine Life Society and Swami Swarupanada of Ramakrishna Math.Self is the inner essence (the incorporeal crux of living being), called Ātman in Hindu philosophies. spirit or soul in western philosophies. Self is differentiated from self, where the latter indicates the organic components of a being that includes body and mind. Realisation of Self leading towards unification with God is considered the primary mission of human existence.1)      What exactly is Yoga?Yoga is a mechanism for detachment from body senses and from action results. As a human, we make use of our senses and capabilities (mind, hands, eyes, etc.) to perform actions. When the actions are performed, we assess the results. If the actions yield favourable results, that brings us happiness. If the action results are unfavourable, that brings us unhappiness. Yoga helps detach results from the actions. This helps us attain immense peace and balance irrespective of pleasure or pain condition, hot or cold weather, honour and dishonour state, or any favourable or unfavourable situation. In short, Yoga teaches us severance from union with pain.VI – 4, 232)      Who is a Yogi?Yogi is the one engaged in profound yoga leading to a controlled body, steady mind with no attachment to adverse feelings. Yogi firmly believes and absorbs in the Self, sees uniformity everywhere and in everyone, irrespective of pleasure or pain.VI – 2, 10, 323)      Is there a recommended practice for Yoga?Sit in a clean spot on a firm seatKeep mind & senses undisturbed and composedHold the body, head, neck erect & perfectly stillFocus gaze only at the tip of the nose (Looking at the tip of the nose, called Nasikāgra Drishti, is prescribed in Gita, the objective being to avoid distraction in surroundings. Alternatively, some people keep the eyes closed inwardly focusing on the spot between the two eyes, called Bhrumadhya Drishti.)Think only of God (In Gita, Krishna says “think of Me”. This is interpretable as “think of God”, “Self” or “supreme divinity”.)Calm, controlled mind is essential for practice of Yoga. Akin to a lamp in a windless spot that shines the best unflickered, a mind in composed state advances into Self-realisation the quickest unfettered.VI – 11, 12, 13, 14, 19, 244)      What do we get by practicing yoga thus?With persistent practice of yoga practice with a disciplined mind and detached senses, we reach a state called yuktā or steadfast or united or nirvana. This is the state where we understand Self, self, how they are related and coexist. We are completely satisfied with life, unperturbed by anything that may happen to us or around us.Every thing valued the same – gold or gravel;Every feeling felt the same – happy or harrowed;Every one treated the same – friend or foe;Every emotion is subdued – passion or placid;Every desire is unnecessary – money or mate; We attain infinite divine bliss unlike anything else experienced before. This is a state from which we never want to move away from. This is the ultimate unification with God where we see God in all beings and all beings in God.We are God Himself.VI – 7, 8, 9, 18, 20, 21, 22, 27, 28, 29, 30,5)      To be yogi, do we need to detach from family, from job and live like sanyasi?No. Whatever maybe the mode of living, anyone who follows the practice of yoga committedly can attain unity with God.VI – 316)      Are there changes in life style needed to be effective yoga?Yoga yields the intended results with moderation in eating, sleeping, recreation, work and all bodily activities.VI: 16, 177)      Mind is very restless by nature. How do I control the mind and focus only on God?Yes. Mind is indeed restless and difficult to control, but it is possible to subdue. This control is possible with the rightly managed self. Firm up the mind to focus on Self and nothing else over a period of time gradually. When the mind wanders, bring it back steadily, but firmly, back to focus on Self.VI – 25, 26, 35, 368)      What happens if we start Yoga and are unable to complete them?If we have followed spiritual path of God-realization, even briefly, we face no grief. The progress to unification is not lost and on resurgence we can continue from the halted stage.VI – 41, 42, 43, 449)      Is this Yoga practical in today’s demanding and materialistic world?The practice of yoga is such it imposes no restrictions on yogi’s profession and worldly duties.See 5) To be yogi, do we need to detach from family, from job and live like sanyasi?, 8) What happens if we start Yoga and is unable to complete them?10)  There are several spiritual paths to God realisation. Why choose yoga among all?Some of the taken roads for God realisation are ascetism (abstinence from sensual pleasures), knowledge (study of scriptures), action (unselfish work) and yoga (meditation being one of the types of yoga).The path of yogi is considered the most superior. And among all yogis, one with complete faith and merger of his self into God is considered the most devout. Therefore, be thou a yogi!VI – 46, 47last_img read more
