How to meditate

  • The next step is to think or imagine that your Guru, the spiritual teacher, is sitting before you. It need not be your Guru, if you do not have a Guru; think of whomever you believe in and have faith in, as your God, be it Jesus, Mohammed, Krishna, Ram, Nanak, or a supernatural power.
  • Rays of light are emitting from Guru (divine power) and entering your body directly through your heart. Forget about everything else and concentrate only on the above-mentioned light, and that it’s spreading inside your whole body, and that you are getting immersed in that light.
  • Continue this concentration until your mind goes astray. Try to bring your mind back to observing the light. Repeat the same process every time your mind goes wandering
  • We do this for about 15 - 20 minutes

Slide In Praise of the Guru Hey dinbandhu, dayal guru, kehi bhanti tav gun gaaun main Tumhre pavitra charitra kehi vidhi, naath kahi ke sunaau main Jihva apaavan hai meri, guru naam kaise lijiye O kind and benevolent Guru! You are friend of the weak and the helpless! How should I sing your praise and describe your qualities? In what way can I express and sing about your unblemished character? My words and my tongue are impure, so how should I utter your name? My mind is engrossed in worldly matters. How do I give such a mind (to you)? Worldly wealth are only forms of Maya (ever changing and perishable), how can I offer them to you! I am deep into worldly matters and don’t know not how to concentrate my mind on you! Mun phuns rahaa bhav-jaal mein, vuh kis tarah prabhu dijiye Dhun dhaanya maaya roop hein, kyon kur nichhavar kijiye Sansaar saagar mein phunsaa, guru-dhyaan kaise kijiye Tun kaise arpan kur sakun, wuh to mahaa paapi adham Dhun-dhaanya au mun deke guru, tumse nahin udhhaar hum Shradhhaa sumirini bhent kari, main deen ho charno padaa How can I offer my sinful body, in your service! I cannot even repay a small fraction of your love and compassion by offering to you worldly riches and my impure mind! I have nothing to offer to you, but devotion and remembrance. So, I humbly offer these (devotion and remembrance) at your feet! Slide In Praise of the Guru Main patit hoon tum patitpaawan, aapkaa hai aasaraa Bhav – sindhu mein phuns rahaa, gurudev mujhe uthaayie Gahi banh deenaanaath apradhee ko paar lagayie I am impure & sinful and you are cleanser and purifier of such people! I only have you to look up to! I am caught in the whirlpool of worldly desires. Gurudev please lift me up (and out of it)! The savior of the weak, please catch hold me by my arm and take me beyond this world, to true freedom (Nirvana)! Gurudev, all those who bow at your feet, do attain true freedom (Nirvana)! I am a beggar at your doorstep, Gurudev with no one else to rely on! I am weak and helpless, you are protector of the weak and helpless! I am sinful and you are the purifier! Jo deen ho charno pade, hey naath wey saare tare Tera bhikhaaree tun bina, prabhu aasaraa kiskaa kare Main deen hoon tum deenbandhu, main adham tum tum naath ho Main hoon anaath kripaanidhan, to tum annathon ke naath ho Maataa pitaa sut bhraat bhaarya, koi saath na jayenge Oos paap kumbhee narak mein, koi na haath bataayenge I don’t have anyone Gurudev, you are the Guardian and Master of all! Mother, father, spouse, children or siblings, none of them will accompany me after death! No one will share the punishments for my sins in Hell Realizing this Gurudev! I seek your refuge. I have nowhere else to go! Gurudev take me across the river (the world), to true freedom (Nirvana)! There is no one else (but you!) who is mine! Yuh soch ke tuv sharan aaya, ub thikaanaa hai nahin Bus paar kardo meri Nauka, aur apanaa hai nahin Slide In Praise of the Lord Main patit hoon tum patitpaawan, aapkaa hai aasaraa Bhav – sindhu mein phuns rahaa, gurudev mujhe uthaayie Gahi banh deenaanaath apradhee ko paar lagayie I am impure & sinful and you are cleanser and purifier of such people!
