How do I meditate?
Meditation is a state of thoughtless awareness, where everyday activity of the mind ceases, but one remains peaceful and aware in Thoughtless Awareness.
To begin, place Shri Mataji’s photograph in front of you (on a table) with a lit candle before it. The candle flame contains the elements of light and fire which help to neutralise any subtle problems affecting meditation. The photo emanates very positive feelings of peace, love and compassion, which will help you reach the state of meditation and thoughtless awareness.
Rest your hands, palms up, on your lap with your fingers pointing towards the candle and photograph. Place your attention at the top of the head and allow yourself to enter into mental silence. Sit quietly for 10 to 15 minutes.
