For many years I have related to this teaching with a strained effort, trying to understand intellectually that the mantra, Consciousness, and my own Self are one.
Now, reading it here, I feel as if I understand it anew. The pulsation, the energy of the mantra that I experience when I gently focus within—of course this is Consciousness and my own Self! Suddenly, it’s so obvious!
In the audio webcast meditation session, “Know the Self,” Swami Dharmananda spoke of the importance of having one-pointed focus on the goal of meditation: the Self. This teaching is illuminating how I can make the right effort to focus on the goal.
I am grateful to Gurumayi for bringing the ancient teachings alive. And I am amazed and delighted to experience this through the website.
