How do we quiet the mind?
The modifications are calmed or controlled by steady practice and dispassion.
—Yoga Sutra 1.12
Four Stages of Superconscious Meditation Practice:
Some of the benefits of regular superconscious meditation practice include:
- Stress reduction
- Concentration enhanced
- Intuition awakened
- Mental clarity
- Spiritual realization
Most importantly, meditation affords us the opportunity to know through direct experience who we are as spiritual beings. Knowledge of the true Self is the basis for transforming our personality and our life. Once we realize through our own experience that our nature is birthless, deathless, eternal Being, the fears and anxieties of life in this world fade.
