With the consistent practice of Dharana (concentration) a continuous and uninterrupted flow of attention at one point, called meditation, is achieved.
Meditation requires calmness, serenity and a balanced state of mind, overcoming the ego and is completed in a state of consciousness in the object of his contemplation – the universal spirit.
Voluntary forgetfulness is the greatest spiritual practice. Forgetting the world around, environment, friends, and even our physical entity gives us a direct innate understanding, knowledge and wisdom in order to raise man beyond physical consciousness. That is the correct kind of meditation.
An indispensable tool for successful meditation is the rhythmic repetition of the mantra. The mantras are sacred words or phrases with positive energy representing vibrations and aim cleansing and dedication of the mind to the inner world. The AUM or Om mantra can be repeated mentally with inhaling and exhaling.
There is no other feeling except a state of supreme bliss. The yogi sees light that shines beyond the earth and the heavens, he sees light in his own heart.
The meditator, the object of meditation and the fact of meditation are all one. When the focus is consistently at least 2.5 minutes we have Dhyana.
