Om - Meditation

Sthiti: Sit in any comfortable meditative posture feeling completely relaxed.


Phase - I

Close your eyes and start chanting OM mentally. Allow the mind to repeat Om continuously without break. If there are distractions, you chant OM faster, not giving a chance for distractions. After a while the chanting slows down. Consciously slow it down further. If the mind jumps to distractions, again increase the speed of japa of OM kara. Thus, by increasing and allowing the speed to slow down, you should be able to have an unbroken stream of the japa in the mind.

Phase - II

Make the chanting soften and soften and gentler and gentler, and more and more effortless. As you progress on the path of meditation, you will reach the second phase of japa in which you start feeling the vibration of the japa in some parts of the body and later throughout the body.

Phase - III

As you slow down the japa of OM. Observe the gap between OM. Further you slow down the gap widens and widens to diffuse into silence.

Phase - IV

The very deep experience of silence helps to expand from the 3-dimensional awareness of the body to all pervasive awareness. The bed of silence becomes deeper and more expansive - an ocean of silence with waves on it. Now merge into complete silence AJAPA. This silence is the source of Creativity, Power, Knowledge and Bliss.

Phase - V

From this deep ocean of silence in the heart region, let one OM emerge as an audible sound which diffuses into the entire body and the space all around. Enjoy the beautiful vibrations. Blink the eyes slowly, gently open the eyes and come out of meditation.


Try to touch this state of deep rest and inner silence several times in the day whenever you have some free time.
