Current Meditations – Can I Feel Non-duality?

These are the meditation practices we are currently doing together at Shanti Sadan.

Below are two recordings of a guided meditation session including these practices:
– the full session with an introduction and guidance on each practice. It is warmly recommend to watch this one at least once in order to benefit most. The session included an introduction on the question ‘Can I feel Non-duality?’
– a shortened version with the practices which could be followed repeatedly as a way of doing our own regular meditation.

 

This is the full session (49 minutes). Watching this at least once will help us gain most from the practices
This version includes an introduction on ‘Can I feel Non-duality?’

This is the edited version with just the practices (20 minutes). A good way of doing daily meditation would be to simply follow this recording.

Summary of the Practices

1. Inner preparation

we turn within to that in us which is ever-present, ever illumined. [About one minute]

More on the preparation for meditation

 

2. Breathing practice

Breathe slowly and consciously.
As you breathe in, imagine the breath is being drawn up as if from the region of the navel to the point between the eyebrows.
With each breath say, silently to yourself, the word ‘light’. [Four minutes]

 

3. Visualisation

Picture in your mind a sunrise. See the sun appearing on the horizon, moving slowly upwards. See the whole scene gradually brighten, until the sun becomes a mass of radiant splendour.  [Five minutes]

 

4. Meditation on a text

Like the rising sun, I shed the light of peace.
Eternal truth am I. 
Bliss am I.

Repeat the text to yourself a few times until you have the main idea in focus, then try to keep your attention on that.
If the mind wanders off, when you become aware of this, calmly go back to the text and its meaning.
Absorb your attention in the great truth expressed in the text.
[Six minutes.]
