Meditation-Magnificent State of Bliss: Patanjali Yoga Sutra 108 Nithyananda Satsang 1-Feb-2011
Living Incarnation and Avatar Paramahamsa Nithyananda spoke today on the subtle difference in his translation of the Patanjali Yoga sutra about Dhyaan (Meditation) in Ashtanga Yoga. "Raising the frequency to a certain level so that the object on which the meditation is happening and the mediator both lose their boundary and become one. If you translate Dhyaan in a very ordinary way, as a flow of the mind etc, then you can meditate on anything but that won't make you enlightened. Then what is the use of the meditation? This is one more Sacred secret. Uninterrupted flowing of mind is not Dhyaan. Dhyana is a state in which both lose their boundary. Even if anyone retain this boundary, Enlightenment cannot happen. You can meditate on anything and if the boundary is lost, you can become enlightened." Paramahamsa Nithyananda explained that this is a subtle difference but a very important difference. This sacred sentiment behind the word Dhyaan should be understood. Boundarylessness is the goal of meditation, rather than the object of the meditation. "Right understanding of the cosmic law should be had and it will play a major role in the way you think, strategize and run your life," he emphasized. "Tatra pratyaya - raising the frequency to the level where the object and the mind lose their independent boundaries. If you think Dhyana is concentrating on one object, you will get into a lot of problems. It's like people taking celibacy vows and then how to maintain the celibacy and their image becomes the main focus. This is a perversion. I have seen people getting into perversions in the name of Dhyana. The purpose will be lost. Suffering and irritation can result." When you raise your frequency, you will have intense joy, peace and bliss. Not only the mind but the object on which you have been meditating lose their boundary and become one with the ORIGIN FROM WHERE BOTH CAME OUT. Understand this when you do your Dhyana.
