The Art Of Meditation – Ishwar Putra Arun

Whether you call it contemplation or prayer with attention, every spiritual recommends some form of meditation to help achieve a peaceful, fulfilling life. Through meditation, we experience a profound peace, bliss and happiness unlike any we can find in this world.

The most typical image of meditation has a person sitting cross legged on the ground. Their hands may be in a prayer position, or in resting on their knees and their eyes are usually closed. That is an accurate image of how many people choose to sit in meditation, but it is not the only way to do it. Some people prefer to lie down and others will prefer to sit up in a more comfortable position on a chair. Some people prefer to go in certain place for doing meditation and Some people prefer to go in a certain room for doing meditation.

Having a straight body posture (sitting or laying down straight) and comfort are the only important points to consider when you are trying out different stillness meditation positions. These practices are also some of the more challenging types of meditation for many of us due to their very nature. We as humans are simply out of practice of being still. They are also some of the best meditation practices to use to dissolve inner blocks and transform the false understanding you may have of yourself.

But according to Ishwar Putra Arun – people can do meditation at any place either on chair or on the ground. It is not essential to sit in a certain place or in a certain room. In true sense, Head is the room where people have to sit for doing meditation.

Ishwar Putra Arun teaches two form of meditation – Jyoti and Shabd meditation. Jyoti meditation is a technique that focuses on the Inner Light. The second practice, shabd meditation, is a higher-level taught at the time of initiation, which focuses on the Inner Light and Sound.

Focusing our Attention

People have made a union with the world through nine (9) doors. All day long their attention, the outer expression of their soul, is going out into the world through their five senses of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Dasam door is closed, but the path of Lord’s house starts from here. Through Shabd Surat Yog, we can collect our attention at the third eye and come in contact with the Light and Sound of God which is within each and every one of us. Through this divine connection, we can embark on the inner spiritual Journey. The beauty of meditation is that the joy found when we focus within remains with us even after we resume our daily activities.

Way Of Spiritual Journey

 

People have made a union with the world through nine (9) doors. All day long their attention, the outer expression of their soul, is going out into the world through their five senses of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch. Dasam door is closed, but the path of Lord house starts from here. Through Shabd Surat Yog, we can collect our attention at the third eye and come in contact with the Light and Sound of God which is within each and every one of us. Through this divine connection, we can embark on the spiritual Journey.

Benefits of Meditation

People have been practicing meditation for centuries. Today we see a surge in its popularity as new benefits continue to be discovered. Meditation has been proven to benefit both our bodies and minds. Many are now realizing an additional advantage — the tremendous benefits spiritual meditation has an additional advantage — the tremendous benefits spiritual meditation has for our soul.

Benefits of Meditation For The Body

Medical doctors have documented the harmful effects of stress on our physical health. During meditation our body is relaxed and our stress and tensions are relieved. Studies show that in meditation brain waves function at a frequency of 4—10 hertz, giving us a sensation of peace and total relaxation. These states have been proven to help the body in many ways, including improved sleep patterns, lower blood pressure, enhanced immune and digestive systems, and a reduced sensation of pain. When we practice Jyoti and Shabd meditation (Surat Shabd Yog), these benefits come as a natural by- product.

 

Benefits of Meditation For The Mind

During the day our mind is filled with thoughts. When we sit for meditation and focus our attention at the seat of the soul, the third eye, we begin to quiet the mind. We become at peace with ourselves and are not bothered by the problems around us. By meditating regularly, we develop sustained concentration. This increase in concentration coupled with reduced stress and tension, renewed energy, and improved relationships, helps us achieve success in our worldly activities. We become more efficient and productive and are better equipped to deal with life’s challenges.

Benefits of Meditation For The Soul

Jyoti and Shabd meditation (Surat Shabd Yog) practices are unique. They benefit not only the body and mind, but the soul as well. Our soul, a part of God, has been separated from God, its divine Source. Through Shabd meditation we can return to our true Home. As we connect with the powerful current of Light and Sound within us, it empowers our soul and we rise into dimensions of higher consciousness. The empowered soul is our true nature and a tremendous source of wisdom, love, and power. This is a purely spiritual experience. Ishwar Putra Arun encourages the people to meditate regularly. He knows that by focusing our attention within we are able to experience the inner realms and connect with God, fulfilling the true purpose of our existence.

Benefits of Meditation for World Peace

With regular meditation practice, we come to see each living thing as a part of God. This is a profound realization that brings about a fundamental change in the way we live. We begin to love all people equally and consider them part of our own family. A great transformation takes place in us, and we radiate love and compassion. If each person attains inner peace through meditation and develops love for all, it will not be long before peace prevails on our planet. We will live in unity and harmony with each other. In this way, our personal attainment of peace and happiness will contribute to a golden age of peace and happiness on earth.

 

The Spiritual Journey

Ishwar Putra Arun

Embarking on the spiritual journey is like getting into a very small boat and setting out on the ocean to search for unknown lands.

The light and sound are the two primary manifestation of God. When God desired to bring about creation, a current of Light and Sound emanated from God. It is a divine stream that brought all creation into being. The soul, absorbed in that current, starts to transcend physical consciousness and being its journey back to God.

The spiritual journey ends in the union of the individual soul with ultimate cosmic reality.

According to Ishwar Putra Arun there are eighteen (18) divisions of consciousness – six (6) chakra in body namely – Muladhara, Svadhishthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddha and Ajna, Five (5) in in side the head namely – Third Eye, Jyoti Niranjan (Om Brahm), Trikuti (Maya Brahm), Dasam Dwar (Ra Ram Brahm) and Mansarovar Lake and seven (7) are above the body namely –  Shunya, Maha Shunya, Bhanwar Gupha (Soham Brahm), Sat Lok, Alakh, Agam and Anami.

SATSANG ( Science of Spirituality)

Ishwar Putra Arun

SATSANG , is a center for delevering purely spiritual teachings and training to mankind, irrespective of class barriers such as caste, colour, creed , sect, age or education. In it Ishwar Putra Arun offers opportunity  free to all who are anxious for Self-knowledge and God-knowledge.

Satsang deals with the most abstruse problems connected with the soul and primarily imparts instructions in the Science of the Soul. All other considerations — physical, social , moral — are secondary and enter discussion only in so far as they aid in the upliftment of the soul.

Satsang does  not conform any formal places of worshiping. The human body is the true Temple of God, and since God is Spirit, those who worship Him, must worship Him in Spirit. The higher values of life–the greatness of God and the need for humility, leading to a pure and honest life of truth, chastity, abstinence, and a loving selfless service of humanity have always been enjoined by all spiritual teachers, as only an ethical life can pave the way of spiritual life.

In Satsang, Ishwar Putra Atrun teaches the importance of sacrifice and to follow in practical life. Father makes sacrifice for their children, Mother makes sacrifice, wife makes sacrifice for her husband, husband makes sacrifice for his wife, brother makes sacrifice for his sister and brother and sister makes sacrifice for her brother. When people forget this sacrifice feeling, the Adharm appears.  Satsang is the basic need of people to turn the people towards Dhama or towards the spending comfortable,  happy and peacefull life.

   Surat Shabd Yoga

                         

                                                                                                                                                   Ishwar Putra Arun

‘Surat’ means ‘Soul or Aatma’. ‘Shabd’ means ‘word’. In Surat Shabd Yoga, the term ‘word’ signifies the music of the soul. ‘Yoga’ means ‘union’. And that is the main purpose of Surat Shabd Yoga – the union of the soul with the essence of the absolute Supreme Being, using the dynamic force of creative energy surrounding the universe in the form of sound vibrations. Surat Shabd Yoga meditation aims to help the individual in realizing his true divine self. Liberating the soul from the cycle of life and death, Surat Shabd Yoga helps in achieving enlightenment and ultimately, Moksha.

Surat Shabd Yoga is a yogic meditation as ‘dying while living’. The meditation involves drawing one’s attention from the physical body and merging the consciousness with the inner sound. It is similar to the physical process of dying when the attention leaves the physical body and the soul merges into the celestial universe and the Divine. In Surat Shabd Yoga, one experiences the absorption of consciousness into the Sound in the state of full awareness.

Surat Shabd Yoga is a science of the soul. This meditation is also called ‘Sadhna’ as it leads to Moksha. Surat Shabd Yoga believes that initiation by a Satguru / Authorise Guru is a must for a successful Sadhna. This surat shabd yoga meditation technique is a simple process, but it needs practice to master it.

Although this meditation could be done anytime and anywhere but I advise to meditate early in the morning i.e. Brahm Muhurt (between 04:00 a.m to 06:06 a.m.), before breakfast and also just before you go to bed at night. One should make it a regular habit. This helps in becoming adept at this form of meditation. With regular practice, you can perfect it and then can do the meditation successfully whenever you need or want to do it.
