on an object is called meditation. Contemplating
is a minor work of the brain. Object seeing
principle is concentration. This para's meaning
is first to conceive in your mind as it is.
Even without the assistance of Guru, anybody
can contemplate or meditate. Read and know the
meaning of the particular terminologies in this
para. It will help you to start the concentration
on your own effort. I am writing for this. Take
the word meditation first. Its meaning is continuous
functioning of little process of your mind.
Meditation is a methodology in yoga. Then take
the word concentration. Slight difference in
the meaning is in it. A man with curiosity seeing
the centre portion of an object does that work
only as many times as possible. It is defined
as concentration in yoga. Contemplation is synonymous
with concentration. Do contemplate. It is another
type of emphasizing meditation.
the yogic practitioner should select an object
for the concentration. It is necessary and it
is the free will of the practitioner. Through
the internet, I am giving you one lesson to
see with your mind or "Manas" in the
Sanskrit language. "Manas" is the
mind. When very little work is given to the
brain, it is called as "Manas". Total
brain is for some other work. For religious
practice I am writing under this heading.
Lesson for Practice
in front of you an 18 inches hollow glass pipe.
With your "manas" you yourself take
one small white ball of the size of a table
tennis ball. From the top push the ball to the
centre of the pipe. Now you are imagining a
ball in the middle of the glass pipe. It is
a concentrating figure for your yoga. Then you
do a work with the help of your imagination.
Imagination is the work of the brain. As the
practitioner is very much interested in the
meditation it is possible to achieve a slight
tranquility in the state of the body, mind and
intellect. At that time imagine that you are
thrusting the pipe inside your body so that
it is in a place between the Adam's apple and
the navel portion of your upper body. The top
and bottom of the pipe are now inside your body
following my instructions.
