Meditation : Antarmana and bahirmana.

There are two types of meditation : Antarmana and bahirmana.

Antamana meditation is meditation inside ourselves when when we try to see what is wrong with us. Bahirmana meditation is outside how we have to live outside. We have to have a discipline that is not imposed on us but which we happily accept and imbibe. To master any art a rigorous triangle is required. So we cannot take Sahaja Yoga lightly. In Shaja Yoga there is no severe tapas (Penance). It is all blessings, but we shouldn’t get lost in the blessings.

Antaramana meditation is very important. Everyone should meditate morning and evening everyday. Fro lack of sufficient meditation people go on catching, clearing, again catching, again clearing. The conditioning, ego, and badhas come and go and do not detach permanently, Just as we bath everyday, we have to wash ourselves within everyday. Meditation is antaratma tapa. To live in the Himalayas or do serve penance is not required, but we have to do this meditation early in the morning.
