Swamiji during satsang


Question: What is the nature of unity with God during meditation, from the point of view of the seeker?

Swamiji: Unity with God means being established in Absolute Bliss, Absolute Awareness. God is within you. You have to go deep within to experience him. To go deep within one has to have full control over one’s senses and mind.

Senses are the instruments of experiencing objects. Mind is the thinking energy. One cannot experience God by the mind. In order to experience God one has to go beyond the senses and mind. To control one’s mind completely is more difficult than to become to president of one’s country.

Question: How can we go beyond the mind?

Swamiji: To go beyond the mind, all the modification of mind have to be stopped. This is possible only in the state of nirvikalpa samadhi. In Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras the definition of yoga is: “Yoga chit vriti nirodh,” which means that yoga implies stopping all the modifications of the mind. These days most people take yoga to be only the practice of physical body postures.
