Steps to Meditation

The goal of meditation is samadhi, absorption in Divine Reality, the true Self, called Atman. To succeed in this essential spiritual practice requires that we get the restless and roving mind on our side – i.e., that we purify the mind. Sri Krishna states in the Bhagavad Gita that Knowledge is the greatest purifier. This Knowledge consists of, 1) hearing about the nature of the eternal, blissful Self, Atman, our true Identity, 2) recognizing the false ideas that prevent us from realizing the Atman, and, 3) practicing the methods that lead us to realization. These three together are the focus of this class. With sincere practice, the mind will thereby become one’s friend, and ready for deep meditation on the blissful, boundless Self.
