Meditation For Inner Peace and Social Harmony by Dada Rainjitananda

In this vast Universe…

…there are so many galaxies, stars and planets  …and amongst them

 The planet Earth In this planet there are so many beings,

Undeveloped beings and developed

…amongst them… …human beings

 Every being, every entity has a characteristic of its own.  The cause of its existence  The essential factor that keeps it alive, that makes it exist.  It may be a developed entity or any element, take for example:

Fire  What is the essential characteristic of fire?  What is the reason for its existence?

 To burn.  It exists because…  …it burns

Human Beings  What is the essential characteristic of human beings?

Human life  What is human life for?  What are human beings searching for?  The Yogis say:  Happiness, love  Peace Bliss

 How much of that?  How much of happiness / peace do we want?  How many minutes, hours or days?

But what is happening in the world?

Progress??  Are we progressing??

Are the people finding that peace and happiness?

What is the difficulty?  The senses  The mind

For how long are the senses pleased?  Eyes – Movie – 2 hours  Ears – Music CD – 1 hour  Feeling – roller coaster ride – 10 min  Taste – Ice Cream – 5 min  Smell – Flower – 10 sec  The senses have a limited capacity to satisfy

What is Meditation  It is a system to develop the human mind in all aspects  To attain harmony, inner peace and happiness.

The Human Mind  In YOGIC science the mind is divided into layers

The First Layer  The Conscious Mind

The Second Layer The Subconscious Mind

The Superconscious Mind  Third Layer: Supramental – intuition, creativity  Fourth Layer: Subliminal – conscience and non-attachment  3. Fifth Layer: the golden layer.

How to reach there?

The Microcosm and … The human being

…the Macrocosm  The Cosmic Consciousness

Mental Expansion  The microcosm is like a drop of water  The Macrocosm is like the ocean  When the microcosm thinks of the Macrocosm…  …human mind expands to infinite

The “Mantra”  Thinking about the Infinite…  … the Macrocosm,  … the Cosmic Consciousness.  It is a thought or a word which expands the mind …calms the mind  …and liberates it from limitations  No side effects




MANTRA  Meditating with a mantra helps the mind to reach the deeper layers

Regular practice is a must to attain progress in Meditation.

How does meditation affects the society?

Movement  The movement with the help of meditation is from the external layers to the inner layers of the mind.  Each layer being more expanded than the previous one.  The Microcosm expands to merge with the Macrocosm.

 Now if, during this process of movement,the mind becomes heavy, it will not be able to move forward.  Suppose you are crossing a river. If the boat becomes heavy due to water percolation, what will happen?  You will not be able to cross the river.  You will have to arrange to pump the water out.

 So what is this process of pumping out the water in the case of the human mind?  How to free the mind from worldly bondages ?  By rendering selfless service to society.

Human society …is one and… …indivisible

 Today, due to superstition, dogmatism narrow-mindedness, separatism and all kinds of `isms' human society is splitting into numerous parts

 In order to build the human society it is necessary to adopt the path of synthesis.

 To build a society, there are two distinct psychologies.  One is service psychology, which inspires people to promote collective interest.

 The second is group psychology, which only tries to promote the limited interest of a small group.

 The thoughts and ideas of those who are guided by service psychology remain far above narrow group interests.

 On the other hand, those who are guided by group psychology want to establish the authority of their group and impose their interests on others.  This leads to inter-personal and inter- group conflict.

 Only the psychology of service, the synthetic approach leads to unity and cohesion amongst numerous individuals and groups.

Psychic Movement  When people move in the psychic sphere they should define a mission in their minds, and they should move towards the fulfillment of that mission.

 Suppose a student is studying.  He will have to remember that he has to pass an examination.  If he does not think about passing the examination,  if he studies  only for the sake of study,  he will never pass it.

 To keep a mission before one's eyes is mandatory.  If there is no mission, then psychic endeavor will become meaningless.  It will be just a waste of time.

What is the best mission? • One’s mission is to promote the welfare of the world. • The welfare of the universe.

Beyond the mental sphere. • Above the mental sphere there is the spiritual sphere. • In the spiritual sphere the movement is internal, from mind to spirit. • Here the mission is Self- Realization.

•One meditates.  When there is the question of Self- Realization , of spiritual beatitude, one will have to move within.

 For psychic progress and to make the mind light we take the mission of “Universal welfare”…  And for Self-Realization we meditate on the Universal Consciousness with the help of a Mantra.  This is the formula of the path of bliss.

Universal Mantras Baba Nam Kevalam Everything is Cosmic Consciousness Love is all there is

Let us experience meditation  Baba Nam Kevalam  Everything is Cosmic Consciousness  Love is all there is
