What is Meditation?

What is Meditation and what you will get when you practice it or what you will lose when you are in practice.

What is Meditation and what you will get when you practice it or what you will lose when you are in practice.

Hope this is the final version of it and no further intuitions will come to my mind to add some more to it.

What did you get in meditation, someone asked me? I replied; I did get nothing but let me tell you what I have lost and how much I have benefited out of it;

01. I lost my anger, anxiety and depression;
02. I lost my insecure feelings and fear of what's next?

74.This is what we all humans must be doing and vying for.
75. This is the only domain of knowledge that encompasses all knowledge in it.
76. If we all practice meditation, I see no problems world over.

82.Unless you go into it and get it spark nothing will come to you.
83. You keep thinking, it will keep coming into your heart and mind so you may incline in further.
84. It is an individual search you have to carry it on all alone to see divine light individually.
85. Keep navigating deep into it, there is no end until you see the light.
86. When it is bestowed upon you, you will go very quiet and calm and will become a very serene person.
87. Sometimes you want to say something but no, you can not.
88. I keep thinking as it comes to my mind I follow it
89. When you will be in practice, maybe you will explain better than me.
90. You can guide others but you can't take them to light and show them. It is not in your reach.
91. There are certain preconditions to be abided by.
92. You have to completely submit yourself to God with honesty, piety, and service to humanity with kindness and with all mercy in it.
93. If you have abundance of material wealth, keep a portion of it which is necessary for you and for your family and rest you spend on mankind so they all may benefit out of it.
94. When you were born you did not bring anything with you, this fact you must keep in mind.
95. There will be a very few to fall in line with but anyhow these are the basic requirements of meditation.
96. Now you are at a crossroad thinking what to do? Keep in mind truth will prevail eventually and finally.
97. We are materialistic and very hard to follow but it is the truth and reality of our lives.
98. Being humans we must follow the reality of our lives.
99. We are fallible, only The God and Our Souls are Eternal. So we are duty bound to do good deeds for our souls.

In short, the conclusion is, I can do whatever I can but it is not my right. it entirely depends on Divine Mercy to bestow upon me.
Unless we come out of selfishness and ego, divine light can't we see!

Just start sitting in meditation (Bundagi) with a clean, clear and pure heart then will see a sea of change in all of us.
