By Swami Sivananda. Meditation is the flow of continuous thought of one thing or God. Meditation is the keeping of one idea of God alone always like the continuous flow of oil from one vessel to another. A continuous flow of perception or thought is Dhyana or meditation. Meditation is a mysterious ladder which reaches from earth to heaven, from error to truth, from darkness to light, from pain to bliss, from restlessness to abiding peace, from ignorance to knowledge, from mortality to immortality. Meditation leads to Knowledge of the Self which brings about eternal peace, supreme bliss. Meditation prepares you for the integral experience or direct intuitive knowledge. 46 pages. Edition 2017.
