Drg drsya viveka- vere 29

HARIH  OM 
Drg  drsya  viveka-  verse  29

                     The  total  stillness  within  due  to  the  experience  of  Bliss  is  the  third  kind  of  meditation  as  described  previously. . One  should  always  spend  time  in the  practice  of  these  six  meditations.  When  the  conscious  mind  deliberately  entertains  the  thought  flow  regarding  existence   and  sees  its   identity   with  that  existence   as  'I am  Existence ' ,  the  sub-conscious  mind  picks  up  the  same  thought  . The  conscious  effort  of  the  meditator  is  not  required. . This  leads  to  the  nirvikalpaka  state  in which  subject-  object  division  is  not  there   and  the  conscious  mind  lies  quite. . Even  in  deep  sleep  state  ,this  is  experienced. . After  waking  up,  I  am  able  to  recollect  that  I  did  not  have  any  experience  in  sleep. . Absence  of  thoughts  is  registered  in  the  sub-conscious  mind  in  the  deep  sleep  state. . Nirvikalpaka  samadhi  is  a  state  of  absorption  in  which  Vedantic  thoughts  stay  on  in  the  subtle  form. . With  this  the  author   concludes  the  description  of  the  six  meditations. 

                   I  should  keep  on  practising  samadhi  abhyasa  until  it  becomes  sahaja  samadhi. , which  means  that  the  Vedantic  thoughts  are  in  my  mind  all  the  time  in  and  through  the  worldly  transactions  . It  becomes  effortlessly  present  in  my  mind.   Of  the  six  meditations,  four  are  deliberately  practised  by  the  seeker  -the  two  fold  internal  and  two  fold  external  meditations  with  the  help  of  the  Vedantic  teachings. . Nirvikalpaka  samadhi  cannot  be  deliberately  practised  . As  a  person  practices  meditation  for  some  time  , the  thought  patterns  get  established  in the  sub-conscious  mind. . The  will  withdraws   and  even  after  the  will  subsides  ,  the  vritti  continues. . The  continuation  of  the  vritti  without  the  effort  of  the  mind  is  called  nirvikalpaka  samadhi. . It  is  only  a  possible  consequence  of  practising  saguna  samadhi.
