Jai SaiMaster,

We pray god or Guru with mantra or something else... we can find some change in that particular time instantly oe peace of mind (May be or not)!!

How we can decide that we are in correct dhyanam?

మన  ఎరుక మూడు నిరూపకాల కంటే ఎక్కువ  స్థాయిలో  పనిచెయడమే  ద్యానం . అడి మాత్రమే సరియైన ద్యానం అవుతుంది.
అది కానప్పుదు జాగరూకతో వున్న  నిద్ర మాత్రమే అవుతుంది. అది ద్యాన ప్రయత్నం మాత్రమే అవుతుంది


Correct me if it is wrong...

Jai Sai Master!

Just like one does not know that one is asleep when in sleep, so does a person does not know one is in dhyana that one is in dhyana. Only later does one see the fact. Dhyana, when it happens, results in deep relaxation and crystal clear awareness after waking up from it, along with a sense of novelty about life. One's mind does not wander but is still and poised, ready. Those are clear symptoms that one's dhyana went well that day.

Jai Sai Master!!

Jai Sai Master!

I found that my previous message was rather not helpful. So, here is a slightly longer answer.

When we sit and meditate, the first thing would be try to find comfort in our posture. It is very helpful to observe oneself from head to toe and from toe to head, part by part, slowly observing how we are sitting, and whether we are comfortable, whether the collar of our shirt is alright or pressing too much, etc. After about a minute of this, it will be great to relax our breath. Try to get the breath to feel relaxed, slow and even. It might take a few minutes to get this right.

Once the breath and body feel relaxed, try and picture Master or Baba, slowly observing the image in our mind until it takes clarity. Sometimes, when we try to picture Baba or Master, several images rush at us, one after the other. Thats alright, thats just mind finding the reference (like search on a computer with a million hits). Eventually, you will select on or the other of Master (based on your liking) and just observe that picture.

To help that process, it is immensely useful to have a picture in hand, which you can see and then closer your eyes and picture that. Once the image is there, then with all your heart, ask permission from Him to meditate, and then pray for His blessings to help you in your meditation.

I generally do not do and do not recommend meditating on Mantra. And after the above steps, usually Mantras have their own steps (most people do not know this, and neither do they teach).

Then, start meditation. In the intial days, meditation might not feel any different than thinking or imagining something. But unknown to us, mind is slowing down. It might take several days/weeks/months or even years, before we notice any difference from that. But slowly but surely, without one's own knowing, time passes away. It might be 1 hour later, but it feels like not more than few minutes. Or it might just be a couple of minutes, but it feels like several hours.

Based on the mind's capability to hold that state, slowly that starts to get disturbed. That image, imagination, starts to get disturbed. If it is not time for us to get up, just try to relax, if need be, relax the breath again, and try again to slowly, calmy, pleaseantly to imagine, or think.

After the required time of practice elapses, meditation starts to 'happen' instead of us 'doing it'. We sit, mind calms down, image/imagination starts, and then thats it.

Its that calmness and stillness and freshness both during and after meditation that suggest whether meditation occured or not.

Jai Sai Master!!
