Ishwar Putra Arun (Aadishri Arun)
The right way to do meditation is to first put all our attention on our third eye. This is where the opening for the higher journey is and this is the point that leads us to the sahas-dal-kamal. To be successful we should forget the world, our fears and worries and even our senses and we should concentrate at this point. Initially as we do this, we will only see darkness. We should not give up but instead call out the name of the Lord thought to thought. This is called Simran. We should also try to visualize a flame of light and soon it will flash into existence. Once we succeed and we see the light flame, we should go beyond this lighted flame and we will see the blue wheel. We should use our longing for our Lord as a source of energy, strength and determination to pierce through the blue wheel and we will soon arrive at the light that makes us forget everything. We should develop our concentration and practice at this place i.e. the third eye. The one who does this soon starts the journey from the lower to the higher and from the outer to the inner..
This is the first step to meditation as is revealed by Aadishri Arun.
(Ishwar Putra Arun)
In Anami, there is an ocean of light and a drop of light is called soul. This soul is a part of the Supreme Being in the true sense. This individual soul came from the soundless state i.e Anami to Agam, Alakh state to the essence of sound form i.e. Veena, Flute, Sarangi, Taal and Bell, Conch. Then it came at Third Eye and gathered at the junction of Ida, Pingla, Sushamna. From here it spread into two eyes and then came into six chakra i.e. Muladhara, Svadhishthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddha and Ajna, the city of nine gates. We can return back to our own home i.e. ocean of Light in pure naked soul a drop of Light by following the same path. Surat Shabd Yog is one of the best techniques to return our own home easily.
One can attain the Supreme Lord and return back to his house by using the following techniques:
(1) Manasik jap: “manasik” means mental, and “jap” gives the information to chant the mantra or sacred name of God. In this mansik jap one should practice mentally repeating names of God with the “thought”. It is called Simran also.
(2) Manasik Yog: Manasik dhyan is a technique of mentally visualizing a Form of God. One should repeat the name given by authorized Guru while visualizing.
(3) Light Meditation: the practice of the meditation on the Third Eye. As one is in the darkness repeating the divine names and visualizing the form of Light that lighted automatically flashes of Light, shimmering Light, lights of various colors, clouds of Light, sparks or fireflies etc….
(4) Sound Meditation: As one’s concentration develops at the Third Eye, one begins to move from lower to higher, from outer to inner.
( 5) Soundless Meditation: In the Soundless state, there are three plans i.e. Anami, Agam, Alakh. In Anami, God is in the form of Nameless, the Soundless One, Ocean of Love.
From one step to another the soul beholds strange things which cannot be described in human language. Every region and everything is utterly beyond words. What beauty and glory! How can I describe them? There is nothing here to convey the idea
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.

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.
