SATSANG OF SWAMI AMAR JYOTI

MEDITATION AND GURU'S GRACE
by Swami Amar Jyoti

For example, when you do yoga postures, if the mind is relaxed and meditative, you get better results. Still, you can do yoga exercises even if your mind is not at peace. With a restless, disturbed or distracted mind, you can talk on the phone, arrange furniture, write a letter, cook, deal with people, and do other things—but you cannot meditate. To put it differently: whatever you do in the other twenty-three hours of your day is going to affect that one hour of meditation.

The aim of meditation is to transcend the mind, actually. Whatever else you are doing—various duties and activities—you have to do with your mind. Deep meditation is solely dependent upon no mind. If mind is there, it is a disturbing factor and you cannot meditate. Any meditation on God, Guru, Om or Light is beyond the mind. Therefore, when the mind is disturbed, it will not only affect the quality of your meditation, it will not even allow you to meditate.

Rituals, exercises, practices, karma yoga, vegetarianism, and such are all just to help you relax your mind. Once the mind relaxes, meditation is easy. Even Satsang, the spiritual discourse of the holy ones, is given to relax the mind. Otherwise minds are busy with many things: power lovingness, position, lies, greed, attachments. You may say, “Oh, I have been meditating thirty years.” If you had actually been meditating for thirty years, by this time you would have been in the abode of Lord Shiva—Enlightened. Purity of mind and heart and relaxation are the two golden wings needed for deep meditation. Without them you cannot meditate. For those who avoid purifying the mind and heart, the results will not be there.
