Samavarti (Lalaji era)
In principle the devotee or abhyasi should present himself before the Master in the same manner as a soldier does at the time of parade.
Our first and the foremost commandment relates to the proper observance of Sandhya and Upasana. By following it we begin to draw in power which we have finally to attain due course.
There must be yielding attitude towards the master.
If we make our heart the target of masterly force we begin to expand inside, with the result that in the long run we find ourselves stretching throughout the Godly empire.
We proceed with meditation on the heart thinking of the Divine Light within, and by so doing we gradually begin to rise or to express it better, to dive deep into the inner consciousness.
Meditation really means that the mind may be accustomed to the centre itself instead of wandering elsewhere. Meditation on heart is prescribed for that purpose.
Please think only that Godly light within is attracting you.
When we meditate, the central power we have remains in force.
It is at this point (Heart) that the connecting link between the animate and the inanimate is most clearly felt.
When you acquire a state of permanency in your meditation, touching the innermost plane, the idea of the Ultimate or God becomes quite near you.
If we try to retain the effect gained by meditation for the most part of the day, and abide in the same state for as long as we can, we are in a way in constant remembrance of God and our progress is easy and rapid.
The mind, which in its primordial state was absolutely pure and regulated has now been spoiled and polluted by our wrong ways and doings.

The grace of my Master Supreme has enabled us again to assemble here and feel the cozy warmth of the sunshine of His everlasting benignance.
Complications also arise by the effect of our wrong thinking and practice, which we have to clear off through the process of cleaning.
It (the process of cleaning) will help you in purging your mind and make you receptive of the efficacious influence of our great Master.
The density of the thought can only be removed if we take to the subtle method.
While meditating, if you secure even a temporary lull, that means you have gone a step further on the path.
Our Great Master has boldly asserted that one can, for sure, attain liberation in this very life, nay, even in a part of it, provided one is really earnest about it and has the fortune of having a proper guide.
PUJYA LALAJI MAHARAJ BIRTHDAY (BASANT PANCHAMI)
We should utilize this occasion in getting into the Master and Master alone, which will act as food and tonic for spiritual elevation.
Now since times are changing, as I have hinted at in 'Efficacy of Raj Yoga', only such means as introduced by our Revered Master Mahatma Ram Chandraji shall be in vogue throughout the world.
|22-Samavarti-145||03-Feb-2017||You should only meditate. You should not struggle with the ideas and thoughts which generally come in during meditation.||SS 136|
|23-Samavarti-145||04-Feb-2017||Meditation only at a certain fixed hour is not enough, for we are thus in touch with the sacred thought only for a while after which we have no idea of God whatsoever and are for most part of the day away from the path of service and devotion.||BWS 254|
|24-Samavarti-145||05-Feb-2017||One must be regular in the abhyas. If interest in meditation is created, half the work is done.||SS 21|
The knowledge of the Divine is a science.
'I' consciousness remains far and near, and it disappears also, if we do our abhyas devotedly.
"Awake, O sleepers, it's the hour of the dawn".
By meditation we create a temporary lull in our mind and calmness prevails for the time during which we are in touch with the divine force.
The external ways adopted for the purpose (attainment of purity) began to cast their effect upon the mind and thus the internal purity too began to develop.
Purity starts from being and impurities are the result of the wrong suggestions and improper utilization of the inner environment.
The divine experiences are the perceptions of the conditions relating to Divinity.
