After reading the Introduction and the dharana
, I had a beautiful experience. As I was focusing my awareness on my out-breath and in-breath, my breathing slowed down and became more even and stable. I could feel the prana
rising from my subtle heart and subsiding there.
As my breathing slowed down, the pause between my out-breath and in-breath lengthened. When I came out of this state, I was peaceful, joyful, and relaxed. My worries had disappeared.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for this guidance on how to practice meditating on the movement of my breath.

What an amazing experience it was, meditating with this dharana
! Like a river, I flowed into a dark space where there was only a deep silence. Suddenly, all my worries and fears vanished. I didn´t care any more about the funny tricks that the outer world offers every day. I just got lost between the spaces of the incoming and the outgoing breath.
Now, for the first time in so many years of meditating, I know the meaning of peace.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for being in my life. My heart is your temple.
