Dhyana
Dhyana is the stage of meditative trainings that lead to Samadhi.

Meditation is the work of consciousness aimed at the consciousness development along the path to Perfection and to the Mergence with the Creator. Meditation is practiced at three stages of the Patanjalis scheme.

At the dharana stage adepts among other things learn how to expand consciousness in the subtlest and the most beautiful that exists in the world of matter. By means of such attunement they establish in sattva guna. (And through working with Yidam they may immediately come in contact with the Fiery manifestation of Divine Consciousness and experience Samadhi).

At the dhyana stage adepts work at increasing the mass of consciousness and at obtaining power in subtlety.

At the next stage their efforts will be focused upon interaction of individual consciousness with Consciousness of the Universal God and upon merging with Him in His Fiery Aspect as well as in the Infinity of the trans-mirror realm. ...more

Meditation means awareness - dhyan - and it is not concentration - concentration creates tension - meditation is project ed as being something complex and difficult to do and so many people propound so many complex ways of meditating - the simplest and the best way to do it - without invovling any guru - is to chant om louldly . note that you have to chant it louldly - and not softly or mentally - chant it loudly for 30 days - 30 chants every day - and see how differently you see the world . sanjeev sardana

Meditation is not for a few but is necessary for all human beings. The inner self of a person touches the Higher Self (the Param-Tattwa) during deep sleep daily. This unknown touch recharges the battery of man.

Meditation involves sitting in a relaxed position and clearing your mind. You may focus on a sound, like ooommm, or on your own breathing, or on nothing at all. Its necessary to have 5-20 distraction-free minutes to spend. Its helpful to have silence and privacy, but more practiced meditators can do it anywhere. Many practitioners of meditation attach a spiritual component to it, but it can also be a secular exercise.

Meditation has evolved out of many different religions and philosophies, which means there are many different techniques to choose from.

Some examples include:

Concentrating on the breath consciously noticing the movement of air in and out of your nostrils, or counting the breath in variety of ways.

Emptying the mind allowing the mind to clear an ...more
