Samadhi

Holding on the reality is Samadhi.

Holding to Samadhi with effort is Savikaipal Samadhi.

Merging in reality and remaining unaware of the world is Nirvikalpa Samadhi.

Merging unconsciously and remaining unaware of the world is Sleep.

Remaining in the primal ,pure,natural state without effort is Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi.— Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; First of all I want to explain it that we can not explain in language to Samadhi. Saints give us ideas how to reach this stage, it is our natural state . but we can not find it due to interference of our mind. our mind is like a grinding machine. it never becomes silente . in deep sleep it comes to stop and we feel happiness there. if by any method sometime mind becomes silent , in that moment we feels glimpse of bliss or we can say moments of Samadhi. so as Maharishi indicates us;

  1. Holding on to reality is Samadhi ; meaning when our mind goes inward by practice and merges in the self this is Samadhi.
  2. Holding to Samadhi with effort is Saviklpa Samadhi; when our practice is going and we come face to face with bliss but there is also thoughts exists vey lightly like background music. this is Savikalpa Samadhi.
  3. Merging unconsciously and remaining unaware of the world is sleep.
  4. Remaining in the primal ,pure ,natural state without effort is Sahaja nirvikalpa Samadhi.now no need to do practice ,meaning that you have reached to your destination.

What is ’I’? Nirvana.

What is ’I.’ or ’who am I.’ is the same thing. As I will give the example of Maharishi Ramana.

The body doesn’t say.’ I.’ nobody says ’I.’ did not exist in a deep sleep.

When ’I.’ rises all rises’ find out with keen intellect, whence this.’ I’?—Maharishi Ramana.

This is the method of the, Self -inquiry. Or we can say deep meditation. According to the knowledge of Vedanta Guru teach you that you are not body and mind. It is true, but we don’t believe in it. But real Saint memorises to you again and again. By his instructions and by the study of scriptures, when you understand this theory, then he will instruct you to do mediation, which means Observation of mind. And according to your practice and Grace one day, you find that bliss in your heart. This is self-realisation or understanding who am I? this is also Nirvana or liberation.

Problems and solutions

There is consciousness alone with quietness in the mind. This is precisely the state to be aimed at. The word ’diving.’ is appropriate if one has to turn the mind within to avoid being distracted by outgoing tendencies of the mind. But when deep quietness prevails without obstruction the consciousness, where is need to dive?—Maharishi Ramana.

Comment; for a man who is advanced in the practice of meditation, it’s straightforward to understand. When the mind is going outside in worldly affairs, we have to work on it, to come inside. Because in inwardness, we find the experience of bliss. But when it enjoys the joy continually, then there’s no need to practice. M

Ultimate truth.

Today while meditating in the morning, a thought suddenly came in my mind. That Vedanta, my Guru St Nikka Singh, maharishi Ramana, have repeated again and again Confirm it that you are not the body, my Guru while teaching us Bhagavad Gita used to say confirm It. 13th Chapter of Bhagwad Gita is on this subject.

Today, I think deeply about this: first thing, when we say, my land, my car, my son, my wife, my property we then believe to the body as.’ I’. But where from we got it? We didn’t send the application to God, that I want to born in human form! And if it is my body then.’ who am I’?. Only find this.’ I.’ then nothing to do more. This is real advice of Wise, Saints of. India.

Problems and soulations

The thought.’ I am not able to concentrate.’ is itself an obstacle. why should the thought arise?’—-Maharishi Ramona

Comment; In fact, every thought is itself an obstacle for meditation. To find Bliss in your heart, there should be not too much thinking. By looking on intellect, we minimise our thoughts. In the absence of ideas, we can find Bliss in our hearts. My Guru st Nikka Singh used to tell us that in a deep sleep you have nothing, no money no sex, but you are happy. Same happens in meditation.

Problems and Solutions

Success in turning the mind inward is achieved by practice and dispassion , and it succeeds only gradually. — Maharishi Ramana.

Comment; Maharishi Ramana was such a saint; he lived in a cave; meditation was his God blessing; he doesn’t read the books; his words come from his inner being. He told us that it takes time to turn the mind inward. And it will happen gradually and with dispassion.meaning that it needs more practice of mediation and dispassion.

The way of knowledge

There is nothing on earth equal in purity to the wisdom. He who becomes purified by yoga finds this in himself. In his self in the course of time.—-Gita Chapter 4th Solaka 10th.

Comment; I think this Solaka of Gita is very important. The whole truth has been told here. Simply we have already bliss in our hearts, but the problem is that we have to purify our hearts. Who can do it with Yoga finds it already there? So sell -realisation is not such thing which we have to purchase from the market. Only our task is to purify our hearts by Yoga.

Natural State

The state in which the awareness is firm, even when objects are sensed, is called the natural state.—-Maharishi Ramana.

Comment; our natural state is a Sat- chit-ananda or Self( bliss ). When this happens, and one is also is aware of the sense objects, this is natural state means that living in the world doing the actions you touch the bliss. I can do my job while working.

Mind

There is no entity by name of the mind. because of the emergence of thoughts, we surmise something from which they start. that we term ’ mind’—Maharishi Ramana.

Comment; According to Vedanta permanent is that thing which remains every time. So Observer in us remains every time. my Guru St.Nikka Singh Ji used to say that confirm it., ” you are not the body, you do not mind, but you are Observer, you can see in your Self that everything changes as mind, body, your senses but the observer never changed. during observation of the mind, your thoughts get emerge, ”

Problems and Soulations

Do not regret tamas ,but when sattva comes into play ,hold on to it and make the best of it.—Maharishi Ramana.

Comment; The mind has been divided by three mods according to Vedanta. When mind is cool and peaceful this mode is called sattvica, when mind occupied with worldly obstacles then this mode called Rajas and mind is lazy, sleep, and can’t discriminate between real and unreal then called tamas. tamas we can’t do meditation, some. People upset that time. our mind works according to our tendencies of this life and previous lives. these three mods changes every time, It’s not in our hands.so Maharishi told as his teaching notcomes regret that time when Sativa comes do your best for practice of meditation.

Divinity

One who is aware of his divinity,while in the body,is in state of bliss beyond description,transcending bondages and liberation,this is here and now.—-Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; in deep meditation when mind goes inward and emerge in the self then we touch the self or bliss.this stage of Samadhi is our real picture or self but because it’s so beautiful,cool, saints used so many words but our language has no enough capacity to explain it. Saint Kabir said,” a man who can’t speak has eaten sugar if you ask him about the taste he can not explain it “ that is Maharishi said that this state is beyond description,transcending,bondages and liberation and this is here and now.

Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2, Solakka 21

He who knows that it is indestructible and eternal, uncreated and unchanging. how such a person slay anyone, O Partha (Arjuna), or cause anyone to slay?

Comments; By practicing according to instructions of a real guru and by Grace of the lord one can find his self which is beyond of pleasure and pain. This is called self-realization or Nirvana. In this stage, it is possible to understand this solaka. according to Vedanta, our body is the combination of two elements spirit and matter. This physical part of the body we consider as ‘I’ but our consciousness is part of the spirit which is real. When one takes the experience of it then he knows the fact. 

             Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2,Solaka22.

Just as a person casts off worn-out garments and puts on others that are new , even so, does the embodied soul cast off worn-out bodies and take on others that are new.

Comments; The eternal soul does not move from place to place but the embodied soul moves from one abode to another.it takes birth each time and gathers to itself a mind. Life and body formed out of the materials of nature according to its past evolution and its need for the future. the psychic being is the vijnana which supports the triple manifestation of the body anna , life ( prana) and mind ( manas). When the gross physical body falls away, the vital and mental sheaths still remain as the vehicle of the soul. Rebirth is a law of nature. There is an objective connection between the various forms of life. Like corn, a mortal ripens and like corn is he born again.

Tat tam asi

My Guru St Nikka Singh gi described this secret of self-realization. it is very deep but I will said something on it. ‘Tat tam asi’ is an idea which Saints used to tell to their develped devotees . To finding the answer of’ who am I’ everybody said first ‘ I am’ in Sanskrit according to Vadantic language it is ‘ Aham asmi’ meaning ,’I am’ but it is not clear now you will put something as i am Hindu, I am Cristain.I am Scholar or something with it. But for Nirvana or Liberation this ‘ego’ should remove. when ‘ego’ starts we said it ‘Parshin Ahankara’ the effort for medition and worship or need for practice is needed to elimanate ‘ ego’ .now it is very important to understand this wherefrom ‘thought’ is arising Observer is also there. this is our self or lord.

If we understand that this is ‘ me’ then you will know the truth with fullness but it is not easy task ,beacuse we think from long time that I am body and mind. which is not true. now what happens? when we become one with mind it is called as Jiva . jiva is Birti sahit abasa . meaning when thought mix with self it is called Jiva. Some Saints said it Chtt jad ki granthi. meaning knot of Spirit and matter. when we remove this illusion by medition then we understand ‘ Tat tam asi’ meaning ‘ I am that’ for this we needed practices of worship and medition to purify our mind. this experince should be come from withen from our heart no other person can judge this only you will understand this. it is Sva samvad meaning your own experince.

The Sadguru.

He is a proper Sadguru to when your mind is attuned . He should be endowed with tranquility, patience, forgivness, and other virtues, he should be capable of attracting others even with his eyes just as a magnet attracts iron. He should have a feeling of equality towards all. He who has these virtues is a true Guru.—-Maharishi Ramana.

According to real Saints these qualities should be in Sadguru. In Upnishadas and Guruvani it has been clarified in so many books. and Maharihi Ramana was a living Guru he told his own qualities. we as desiples or seeker of truth should know this. In these days there are so many false Gurus in all over the world especially in India. My Guru, Saint Nikka Singh ji was like this real Guru. but as Sri Shankarcharya defined it in his Bashaya on Gita. He wrote that Gurus gave these ideas to followers in their mind while practicing. When he will find this stage, then he will satisfy. otherwise he understand about any Saint that he perfect or not.

Need for Practice.

Your effort is meant not to allow yourself to be distracted by other thoughts. —-Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; Main obstecle in mediation is our mind. our mind can never be take rest , every time it is running after worldly affairs. if you look inside on mind you will find that is is working every time. and it takes pain from outgoing tendencies. we have too much knowledge but this is only memories. real knowledge of the self is hidden under the thoughts of the mind. so for real medition our aim should be on emptying the mind so that we can touch the bliss. our Indian Saints said that Samadhi and deep sleep are like sisters. in deep sleep mind goes inside and touch the self but due to sleep there is ignornce but in Samadhi mind goes inside by our effort in awakning and touch to self. so our effort is meant not o allow ourself to be distracted by other thoughts.I am doing methods of medition like observing the mind and Nam-Japa , it is right but we can not explain by words bacuse it is divine experince.

Grace

Grace is the beginning , middle and the end.—-Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; According to Maharishi Ramana grace is every time and everywhere but our experince is different . we never touch it due to too much thinking. mind is like clouds on the self. when by practice of observation or nam-japa , we remove thoughts then we can find experince of bliss which is already there. that is why vadanta said that you are not body and mind. we have to work on it. thats all.

Non-objective medition.

No Meditation on any kind of object is helpfull. in meditation on an object whether concrete or abstract you are destroying the sense of oneness and creating duality. medition on what you are in reality.—- Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; There are so many methods for prastice of mediation. some people said to focus on any object like flower or any deity figure. but Maharishi said you are destroying the sense of oneness and creating duality. beacuse then you are creating new problem of any figure.Maharishi wants to tell his method by which he got enlightnment.only objervation of your mind you are not creating a new problem.

I know a Saint who was disiple of my Guru St Nikka Singh ji.he used to concentrate on Figure of Rama. one day he told St. Nikka Singh ji that he has concreted so many years on Figure of Rama while reciting Nam Japa. and now he can feel everywhere picture of Rama. then St Nikka Singh ji advised him to leave this practice and start objervation of mind which is non -objective meditation. Then he started this practice but find very hard to leave the figure of Rama. he sometimes used to tell us that you should start from biggining non-objective meditation. to leave figure becomes a great problem. this will lead towards liberation.

My ideas about Vadanta.

Friends I stayed with a great Saint . his name was Nikka Singh ji he was a great Saint who knows the secret of life. he was a Saint from Nirmal Panth. ( Nirmal Traditation). this traditation comes from Sikh tradition whose founder was Guru Gobind Singh ji . I studied Guruvani, Bhagwad Gita, from my Guru. As I found, these saints are Holy people and do not want money and offerings from the disciples. They want to teach them the secret of life. First, they teach them theory, then and they.

As my burning desire is that I can explain this essential knowledge to someone else. So it is a vast knowledge of human life. I make my mind to write a series of articles about this.

First of all, one thing that takes in mind that Holy Saints have a practical approach to this Vedanta knowledge. I will write a series of articles named’ My ideas about Vedanta. So what I read what I learned from Holy Saints of India, I will write and what practice my guru, instruct me. My experience of meditation I want to share it with someone else.

As I understand about this It is a very important to understand about this subject. ideas has given in Vadas, Gurubani, Buddhisum about it. so it is a vast subject. this is only approach is to tell disiples by riches this secret of life. I will write slowly, slowly to this as understand. so you can take help what I want to say. our Saints wants to tell us what experince they got. I want to write it in the name of ,’ My ideas about Vadanta’. as a series of my ideas.

My Guru ST Nikka Singh JI was a great Saint from line of Nirmal traditation. The founder of this Nirmal tradition was Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji.by so many beautiful examples in Gurubani it has define. by Bahgwad Gita also it is defined. it is a vast subject so it will take time to understand. I want to give examples from Guruvani, Vadas and I will give my experince for it. as I understand our Saints first teach theory of it and when they find that disiple is ready to work on it then they say to do Nam japa or medition. I want to teach this knowledge as I learned from my Guru.

Fruit of action.

If one feels he is doer one must reap the fruit of his action. if one inquires ‘who is the doer?’ and enters the heart, the doership idea will end and triple karma is destroyed. this is indeed is liberation.—Maharishi Ramana.

Comments;

Maharishi Ramana was such a saint who used his own experience of self-realization without reading scriptures. his words come from Samadhi. when we think that we are the doer of any Karma we have to reap the fruit of that karma. as you know the method of Maharishi was self-inquiry. so when we will put the question to ourself ‘ who is the doer? and our mind will go back and will merge in the self then we can feel the dawn of liberation.
