INTRODUCTORY MEDITATION INSTRUCTIONS

Introductory or Interim Meditation Instructions For Those Not Formally Initiated Yet Into Surat Shabd Yoga Mediation: Inner Light and Sound (based on the writings of Kirpal Singh, see the RuhaniSatsangUSA website)

“Meditation is the process of withdrawing the attention from the world outside, and focusing it at the seat of the soul in the body, behind and between the eyebrows. This point is known as the inner eye, third eye, the single eye, shiv netra, tisra til, or the divya chakshu. In order to withdraw our attention and focus it on this Point, mind must be controlled and stilled.

“Sit in one pose, and move not your head, limbs or eyes. Sit straight but relaxed with no tension in the body below. Sit still, please.

“Close your eyes as in sleep, and look sweetly, lovingly, intently into the middle of the darkness lying in front of you. You will see a dark veil. That which sees the dark veil within, without the help of your physical eyes, is the inner eye. Do not put any strain on your physical eyes, nor turn them upwards, for that will result in headache or heat. Pay no attention to the breathing process… let it go on naturally.

“There are two currents working in the body; one of motor-currents or prana or the vital-airs, and the other of surat, or attention, which gives us the sense of feeling. The Saints do not touch the prana currents which govern breathing, circulation of blood, growing of hair and nails. The pranic system of breath-control is the way of yogis and not that of the Saints. The Saints’ way is to concentrate surat or attention at the Single or third eye while mentally repeating the mantra of five charged names which act as an “open sesame” to the higher planes.

“Those who are initiated, repeat the Five Charged Words, one by one, very slowly, mentally, internally, at intervals, so that your inner eye is not disturbed. Those who have not been initiated, just sit in sweet remembrance of God ….. repeating with the tongue of thought any name of God or Saint which you hold dear.”

[For example: Ram, Hari, HU {pronounced “HOOOOO”}, AUM {pronounced “OOOMMM”}, Allah, Yeshua, Radhaswami {Ra-da-Swa-MMMEEEEEE}, or some other sacred name]

“As you look within, you will see a sky, or blue sky: If you look minutely into it, you will find it studded with stars, or you may see pinpoints of Light. If so, try to locate the big star out of them, and fix your whole attention on that. Then you may see the inner sun or moon. If so, focus all your attention into the middle; it will break into pieces, and you will cross it. Beyond you will see the radiant form of the Master or his Master… “

“…Become the eye itself. Go on looking constantly without a break…..Any effort on your part stands in the way; let yours be an effortless effort, and you will find that your soul will be withdrawn from the body…..”

Remember, this is the Introductory Meditation, not the full practice learned at the time of Initiation. This is only the beginning.
