When we hear the word meditation what the first picture comes in your mind?, that we have to sit quietly in a certain position by applying some mudra and it will also consume so much of time, and many other things to attain peace. Actually many spiritual aspirants have a misconception that the purpose of meditation is just to achieve divine bliss, divine ecstasy, peace, calmness, and divine oneness. These are just partial benefits. Anyhow you will going to get it. It is all by default or you may say these are all additional perks. The purpose of spiritual practices is to accelerate the evolutionary development of the soul so that the person can be of greater service to mankind and to the planet earth.
Moreover, it is with the help of meditation that our mind is woken up from its unawareness of true reality, thus liberating ourselves from samsara and further reaching the enlightened state of our true buddhic nature for the benefit of all. We just has to create the necessary atmosphere in our body, mind, emotions and energy then meditation has to blossom within us, it is not going somewhere, it’s a home coming, it’s getting back to our original nature. By spending half an hour a day, it is possible to revolutionize one’s attitude and approach to life. The practice is easy, pleasant and invigorating. Never say that “I have to do it” instead say “I choose to do it” then see the difference within you.
Actually, our buddhic nature cannot be fabricated; our nature is primordially enlightened but because of our ordinary speech and discursive thinking obscures it. The nature of our mind the Buddha nature is like space itself but it is obscured by clouds so the whole point of meditation practice is to eradicate the clouds and allow the actualization of what already is – the awakened state of mind, the Buddha nature. And that’s why I always say,
“No meditation No life”
“Know meditation Know life”.
