Meditation and the Bhagavad Gita part 2

 

 

The Bhagavad Gita is full of affirmations that can help you to positively create a successful life.  Each verse or sloka has a lesson that you can learn from if you know how to interpret it.

The Dru Bhagavad Gita Online course can be a handy resource for your meditation if you choose to bridge it in.  The course is a step-by-step guide to interpreting the messages of the Gita and it explains how to apply them practically in your life. The course is particularly helpful if you want to take your explorations of the Gita to a deeper level. And this is perfect for the meditator who wants to use the truths of sacred scripture to meditate on.

Of course you can use other scriptures, but the Gita is a quantum spiritual scripture because it helps you to lead a material life and at the same time shows you how to be spiritual.

Perhaps you would like to know what the Gita says about the practice of meditation itself? If so then Chapter 6 in the Dru Bhagavad Gita is for you. It recommends how to sit for meditation and also what to also focus on so that you can enhance your meditation experience.  It gives various details to optimise your meditation practice but remember to take on just those things that work for you. These instructions are just guidelines for you to consider.

Chapter six also says that meditation is the most important tool you will ever be given, because it is the only way to transcend the body/mind and to find your real Self.  As soon as you touch who you really are, then everything you are not melts away. Thoughts, emotions, ego, personality and intellect are all transcended.

Meditation also brings everything inside of us into alignment. From this point of balanced awareness we can enter into each day confident that we can meet any challenge with our minds positive and clear.

Sloka 19 of  Chapter six says ‘Just as a lamp in sheltered place does not flicker, the controlled mind, absorbed in meditation, remains ever steady’.

And this is the aim isn’t it? To have a steady mind through all of the events that unfolds in our lives.
