What we're about

The Art of Meditation

Whether you call it contemplation or prayer with attention, every spiritual tradition recommends some form of meditation (http://sos.org/page/meditation-connecting-with-our-soul.html) to help achieve a peaceful, fulfilling life. Through meditation, we experience a profound peace, bliss, and happiness unlike any we can find in this world.

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj teaches two forms of meditation: Jyoti and Shabd meditation. Jyoti meditation is a technique that focuses on the Inner Light. The second practice, Shabd meditation, is a higher-level technique taught at the time of initiation, which focuses on the Inner Light and Sound (http://sos.org/page/the-current-of-light-and-sound.html).

References to the divine Light and Sound of God are found in every religion. This power has also been called Naam, Shabd, the Holy Word, Sonorous Light, Voice of Silence, and other terms in various religions and languages.

Focusing our Attention

All day long our attention, the outer expression of our soul, is going out into the world through our five senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, and touch. Through Jyoti and Shabd meditation, we withdraw our attention from the outer world and focus it at the seat of the soul, the third eye, located between and behind the two eyebrows.

As we learn the art of Jyoti and Shabd meditation, we can collect our attention at the third eye and come in contact with the Light and Sound of God which is within each and every one of us. Through this divine connection, we can embark on the inner spiritual journey. The beauty of meditation is that the joy found when we focus within remains with us even after we resume our daily activities.
