A Question and Answer about Meditation

Swami Veda Bharati holds the prestigious title of Mahamandaleshwara in the Swami order of monks.  He was also the Chancellor of HIHT University, Dehradun, which was established by Master Swami Rama. He authored approximately 18 books on Indian spirituality including a 1500 page comprehensive commentary on two of the four chapters of Patanjali’s Yoga-sutras. Before taking the vows of Swamihood in 1992, Swami Veda Bharati was known as Dr. Usharbudh Arya.

Question:
I recently read your thought provoking and heart touching book "meditation the art and science". I am a novice in the path of spirituality and meditation. I want to know one thing which I missed in the book is experiences, visions, miracles in meditation. What are the inner experiences while meditating I want to know it earnestly from you. I don't know why but the void will be filled when I receive your reply Swamiji.

Answer:
In my meditation I seek only the durable peace and total quiet. No other experiences that are distractions on spiritual path of atman-realization and are games the mind plays. Seek only tranquility. That is all I teach by the methods taught by my Gurudeva Swami Rama of the Himalayas. These we teach at our Ashram in Rishikesh. Love and blessings -- Swami Veda Bharati
