Lesson 196 - Refining a Sound in the Mind  (Audio)

From: Yogani
Date: Thu May 20, 2004 1:09pm

New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the archive, as previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why This Discussion?"


Q: What will be the effect of meditating on objects (such as an image of Om) and also ideas and meanings (such as that of God) when compared to meditation on sound (such as I AM)? It looks like my mind clings to an image sooner than to sound. Which do you advise for faster purification of the nervous system?

A: We should use only one object for deep meditation -- our mantra. And we do not cling to it. We only favor it, and we allow it to change and refine as we go inward. Sound is particularly effective because it refines easily in the mind to finer and finer vibrations, and can be picked up easily and gently with the attention very deep inside. Meditating on physical objects, symbols, pictures, or meanings of things is not as effective as sound for going deep. This is not to say it can't be done with these other objects. It is only that we should choose one way and use that with effectiveness. The sound of the mantra is very easy to refine to penetrate our depths of inner silence, using the procedure described early in the lessons. Then we are quickly cultivating inner silence in our nervous system, which is the cornerstone of all enlightenment.

The guru is in you.
