SAINTS AND MAHATMAS, during initiation, talk about three practices. The first is Simran. The second is Dhyan, where you contemplate on the Form of the Master at the back of the Eye Center. And the third is Bhajan, where you listen to the Holy Sound Current.
Our attention today is all focused outwardly in all worldly matters. To bring back that attention and focus it within, the Masters give us these Five Names that we repeat, and that Simran and the contemplation of the Master within help us. These two practices help to get our attention focused inward.
We need repetition to cut repetition. Right now, we are repeating the thoughts and our outwardly pursuits in our mind. So, the Simran helps us, the repetition of the Naam helps us, to cut that outward repetition. And we are all the time contemplating on things outside. And the contemplation of the Master within helps to, again, focus the attention and contemplation within.
Our soul is at the back of the Eye Center. And the Sound Current is also reverberating at the back of the Eye Center. So, listening to that and focusing within, is what Dhyan is.
The third thing is Bhajan. When we do Bhajan, we try to listen to the Sound Current resonating at the back of the Eye Center. When we sit for our Bhajan, we should try to simply see, try to look within with our inner eye, and try to listen within with our inner ear. At that time, we should not be doing our Simran.
When we do our meditation, the focus should be more to do our Simran and Dhyan, that is, the Simran and the contemplation of the Master within. We should spend more and more time doing that when we sit for meditation. While we are doing our Simran, and while we are contemplating on the Master within, at that time, it is likely that we may hear the Sound Current also. But, we should not focus on the Sound Current. We should stay focused on the Simran and we should stay focused on contemplating the Form of our Master within.
We should focus on these things one at a time. As our Simran improves, as our contemplation within of the Form of the Master improves, automatically, the listening to the Sound Current will also improve. So, we should focus on one thing at a time.
It is Simran and Dhyan, which help us to come above from the six chakras to the seventh, and focus at the back of the Eye Center. Only with Simran and Dhyan, we are able to cross this Path. And, thereafter, it is the Shabd, which takes us further. And that is the true Shabd behind the Eye Center.
When we do our Simran and Dhyan, and the attention of the soul gets focused at the back of the Eye Center, the Radiant Form of the Master is sitting there at the back of the Eye Center, and we get to see the Radiant Form of the Master there. So, when we focus at the back of the Eye Center, and we manifest the Radiant Form of the Master within, then, with the Grace of the Master, He takes us and gets us to do the darshan of Jyoti. And, after that, we can start hearing the Sound Current.
The Sound Current that we are all listening to when we are doing our meditation now, or even when we are doing Bhajan now, is the Sound Current coming from the six chakras that are there below the Eye Center. So, when we go within, and when we go at the back of the Eye Center and, with the Grace of the Master, the Sound Current manifests, that is Anahad Shabd. And that is the true Sound Current that will take us back. And that Sound will never stop. That Sound will continuously be resonating there, and that is the True Sound that will take us back to God Almighty.
It is only after we are able to completely, inwardly focus our attention and go to the back of the Eye Center with the help of Simran and Dhyan then, with the Grace of the Master, the true Sound Current, that is, Anahad Shabd, will manifest. So, below that, till we come to the back of the Eye Center, our focus should be to improve our Simran and Dhyan.
So, the atmosphere is quiet. We should make the most of this. We should get connected with Simran and Dhyan. So, close your eyes.
