Instructions on Spirituality – Swami Virajananda – 2 — MEDITATE
– December 07, 2017
When you begin meditation, first sit steadily for a while and watch the mind; let it wander for a while and watch the mind; let it wander wherever it pleases.
Think that you are the witness, the seer. Sit watching how the mind floats and thinks, runs and skips.
Keep thinking, “I am not the body, nor the senses, nor the mind; I am altogether separate from the mind. The mind, too, is material; it is only a finer form of matter. I am the Atman (Self), the master; the mind is my servant.”
Whenever any idle thought arises in the mind, try at once to put it down forcibly.
—— Paramartha Prasanga Para 3. By Swami Virajananda
