Nirguna Meditation

15 Sep Concentration and Meditation by Swami Sivananda
From the book Concentration and Meditation by Sri Swami Sivananda:

Sit in Padmasana. Repeat OM mentally. Keep the meaning of OM always in the mind. Feel that you are the All-pervading, Infinite Light. Feel that you are the “Suddha-Sat-Chit-Ananda, Vyapaka, Atman, Nitya Suddha Buddha Mukta, eternally free Brahman.” Feel you are Chaitanya. Feel that you are the “Akhanda Paripurna, Ekarasa, Santa, Infinite, Eternal, Unchanging Existence.” Every atom, every molecule, every nerve, vein, artery, should powerfully vibrate with these ideas. Lip repetition of OM will not produce much benefit. It should be through heart, head and soul. Your whole soul should feel that you are the subtle, all-pervading Intelligence. This feeling should be kept up continuously.

Negate the body-idea when you repeat OM mentally. When you chant OM, feel:

  • Infinity I am                OM OM OM

  • All Light I am              OM OM OM

  • All Joy I am                 OM OM OM

  • All Glory I am              OM OM OM

  • All Power I am            OM OM OM

  • All Knowledge I am    OM OM OM

  • All Ananda I am         OM OM OM

Mediitate on the above ideas constantly. Constant effort with zeal and enthusiasm is indispensable. Repeat mentally the above ideas incessantly. You will realise.

SOHAM, I am That I am !!
