Namaskar The question is, how to get wisdom by doing meditation? It is one of the two most important benefits of meditation. For the success we need only two things. We need energy and we need knowledge. Know how and do. That is the success formula In the young age we have lots of energy, but not much intelligence, in the old age we have a lot of deeper intelligence, but not much energy. But if you will somehow manage to get these both at the same time, the wisdom and energy. Then we will be very successful human beings. So, how to get wisdom and how to get energy? I have recorded the video about how to get energy in meditation. So today , is how to get knowledge in meditation. How to get wisdom in meditation. There is an intellectual knowledge, and that intellectual knowledge applies in certain circumstances. but in other circumstances it may not be applicable. To be able to know, how to apply your knowledge and experience, you must have wisdom. Which is intuitive, deeper knowledge. By doing meditation you establish connection with Prajiana. Prajina means Supreme wisdom. The thing is that we are only partially individuals. We have individual body, It is separate from other things And we also have our conscious mind, its separate. i feel my desires are separate from somebody else’s desire. And then I have subconscious mind also individual. I have my own character, I have my own personality, I have my own psychological traits, they are mine. And they are not his or hers. But if you go deeper still, if you go still deeper in the mind, you will discover that some portion of the mind, normally unaccessible, normally unknown to the person. It actually exists. And It is not only unknown but it is also collective. As Yung, did say, he named it collective unconscious. And , yogiis, they call it, superconscious mind. The mind which is above our normal intelligence. Which is unexpressed. Which is beyond the symbolism. So, if we will somehow establish the connection of the lower layers of the mind with that superconscous mind, we will become wise. And meditation does exactly that. After half a year if you start doing meditation today, after half an year it will just occur to you oh, somehow, I have become so wise. How did it happen? Why did it happen? Because meditation does exactly that . It establishes the connection of the lower layers of the mind with the higher layers of the mind. In the higher layers of the mind there are three of them. You can subdivide into three. The first layer, it has the quality of creativity. Second layer has the quality of intuition. It is the ability to discriminate, true from untrue, true from false, yes from no. So, this is what we need in life. When I want to do something yes or no ? I should be able to judge yes or no. so , when I have developed that ability, then I am succeeding in all spheres of life, yes or no. So that is the… And then final intuitional ability, interesting the final intuitional ability is love. When you are able to have love for other beings, other creatures. Somehow in the feeling of that love all the actions are intuitively correct. So the meditation process develops the higher layers of our mind. How does it develop? To be creative, to be creative you need to abstract yourself from existing existing knowledge, from existing… from the things that have been already created from the things that you have already learnt. To be creative you need to be innovative. So something new, find out something which didn’t exist before. And for that what you need to do? You need to do the particular process of meditation. that is called pratayahara yoga. It is withdrawal of the mind from the external world. It is the withdrawal of the mind from the body Its the withdrawal of the mind from the thinking process The best it is explained in the personal lessons of meditation. But also we have explained at the meditation steps project. We have explained, to some extent in the basic meditation with Baba Nam Kevalam mantra. When you come in that state of clarity. When there is no movement in the mind. Then the creative ideas they start pop in the mind, they appear in the mind. Its just like a Cosmic WhatsApp. You are sitting, you are concentrating, and when the mind become still, message has come. Suddenly you become aware of something and you realise oh ! And is just like a windows are opening in your mind and you can see. Oh ! yeah, now I understand that. Now I see clearly the path before me, this is what I am going to do. So this is extremely important benefit of meditation. And that benefit help me very much. Because when I analyse, when I look back all my most important decisions, the decisions that lead to the prosperity, to the progress, they were taken in the meditation practice. Because I sat for meditation, I have some task sometimes I don’t have anything. I just move as I move, I do what I do. But then I sit in meditation and suddenly I realise, “Oh ! I must change.” I must change the trajectory of my movement. And I should stop doing this, and i should start doing that. And its just amazing how it works. because you have all the answers within yourself. you do have. In that powerful Omniscient Super conscious mind. But normally, we are too busy to to let that superconscious mind speak. And when that superconscious mind is speaking, it is so subtle It’s difficult to grasp. But in meditation mind becomes very subtle and then superconscious mind is able to penetrate to the lower layers of the mind and give a clear idea and picture. So very important process is the Pratyahara yoga. Pratyahara yoga is of many types. One type is when you sit in meditation and you withdraw and you make your mind completely still before you go into concentration and contemplation. So that is one Pratyahara yoga. Another Pratyahara yoga I also explained previously. The Video is called Guru Puja. Is the process when you become unattached. It is not enough to know, but also there has to be inner detachment. I am not attached to what I do. It may happen with this result or it may happen with other result. I am not fearing the future. I am not attracted to the future. I am living in the present and I am open. I am waiting for the cosmic force to guide me. I am listening I am listening to that inner guidance. I am listening to my heart. So in the process of Guru Puja, you are letting go of all your attachments, And you get that feeling, the sweet feeling of letting go or sort of surrender to the Cosmic, becoming just like you are making your body and mind obedient to in the hands of the cosmic flow. And then you are able to see the bigger picture. Somehow in meditation and also in this process of letting go the feelings of ego, of the egoistic attachments. You are able to perceive the bigger picture And that bigger picture if you follow through, it will bring you success. So, you have to be unbiased detached, for the wisdom to appear within you. And then day to day life also this attachments, they stick to us, we become inspired with something and we enjoy something and we become very attached and then in that process we become blind. So during the day we have to try to constantly maintain the state of meditation, even during our day today activities. So, these things, if we do, we become wise. And another thing is the ability to focus the mind. When the mind is the second ability when the mind is focused, when the mind is deeply concentrated when the mind is transformed in the small smallest possible point. When it is focussed, it is well done in the personal lesson of meditation but with the little less extended can be done in the basic meditation. You focus on the mantra. Your entirety becomes mantra. There is no other object. There is only one object. Your mind has become just like a Laser beem. There is only one thing in the mind. That kind of concentration develops even higher layer of the mind. and there you gain the ability to intuitively know and intuitively distinguish the truth from untruth. And then finally, when you contemplate on the meaning of the mantra when you contemlate on the meaning of the mantra, and flow with the mantra, that awakens Love within your heart. And this tree will become the complete wisdom. So, a wise person will do meditation, because it develops all the intuitive capabilities. Thank you very much.. let me know what you are thinking in your comments. Namaskar.
