Why Meditation is Required — a Simple Explanation

I have been practising Samarpan Meditation for the past 12 years now and the benefits are tangible and for me have attained a kind of permanence. Meditation is recommended for a whole lot of reasons — it calms the mind, it dissipates anger, it increases love and compassion, it perpetuates good health, it conserves energy and at higher levels it begins to give you deeper insights about life. I will try and explain meditation in relation to the human anatomy. The human body is supposed to have about 72000 channels through which the energy flows — but the important ones are the Ida (Right), Pingala (Left) and Sushumna (Central). The energy flows through these three channels and as you know for doing any activity energy is required — whether it is studying, playing, eating, sex, etc.

But to go into deeper levels of consciousness we need to clear our mind of prejudices, hatreds, anger, preconceived ideas — once we do this, we are open to receive universal energy. Through consistent and regular practise of samarpan meditation we are in a position to harness the energy within us and bring it to a focal point — which otherwise is dissipated in one’s daily routine.

Once you are able to do this, these energies which are present in the Right and Left channels need to be brought and stabilised at the root chakra — the Muladhar. Then, in very high states of meditation this energy travels upwards through the three channels, once this happens your awareness rises from the gross to the subtler and still subtler till you finally reach That, and That is something beyond the Five Senses.

Some basics to remember — practice meditation at least once a day, preferably early in the morning between 3.30 am to 5.30 am — this time is most suitable as all the higher energies are in operation at this time. As far as possible avoid lying, stick to the Truth in your daily life — try your best. Lead a very simple life — do not base your happiness on your worldly possessions — they are temporary in nature. Moderation is the key to happiness. Try your best not to injure or hurt other beings, including humans — do your best to avoid hurting others — physically or mentally.

If you practice this daily, your mind will become quiet and you will slowly start tapping into higher states of consciousness. Your entire success is dependent on your dedication, faith, total and unconditional surrender, your single pointed focus on your goal and your understanding of what you are trying to do and achieve with divine Grace. Remain humble, compassionate, loving and caring as you reach higher levels of consciousness.
