Q.
What is meditation?
A.
Meditation is a simple process Of watching your own mind. Not fighting with the mind Not trying to control it either Just remaining there, a choiceless witness. Whatsoever passes you simply take note of it With no prejudice for or against. You don't call it names That this should not come to my mind That this is an ugly thought and This is a very beautiful and virtuous thought. You should not judge You should remain non-judgmental Because the moment you judge, you lose meditation. You become identified. Either you become a friend or you become a foe. You create relationships. Meditation means Remaining unrelated with your thought process Utterly unrelated, cool, calm Watching whatsoever is passing. And then a miracle happens: Slowly slowly one becomes aware That less and less thoughts are passing. The more alert you are, the less thoughts pass The less alert you are, the more thoughts pass. It is as if traffic depends on your awareness. When you are perfectly aware Even for a single moment, all thinking stops. Immediately, there is a sudden stop And the road is empty, there is no traffic. That moment is meditation. Slowly slowly those moments come more and more Those empty spaces come again and again And stay longer. And you become capable of moving easily Into those empty spaces with no effort. So whenever you want you can move Into those empty spaces with no effort. They are refreshing, rejuvenating And they make you aware of who you are. Freed from the mind you are freed From all ideas about yourself. Now you can see who you are without any prejudice. And to know oneself Is to know all that is worth knowing. And to miss self-knowledge is to miss all. A man may know everything in the world But if he does not know himself He is utterly ignorant He is just a walking Encyclopaedia Britannica. Freedom without awareness is only an empty idea. It contains nothing. One cannot be really free without being aware Because your unconscious goes on dominating you Your unconscious goes on pulling your strings. You may think, you may believe that you are free But you are not free, you are just a victim Of natural forces, blind forces. So there are two types of people. The majority Follows the tradition, the society, the state. The orthodox people, the conventional The conformists ? they follow the crowd They are not free. And then there are a few rebellious spirits Dro

Q.
There are so many, very different kinds of techniques. Do they have some common meeting ground?
A.
There are one hundred and twelve methods of meditation, but witnessing is an essential part of all one hundred and twelve methods. So as far as I am concerned, witnessing is the only method. Those one hundred and twelve are different applications of witnessing. The essential core, the spirit of meditation is to learn how to witness. You are seeing a tree: You are there, the tree is there, but can’t you find one thing more? – that you are seeing the tree, that there is a witness in you which is seeing you seeing the tree. The world is not divided only into the object and the subject. There is also something beyond both, and that beyond is meditation. So in every act...and I don’t want people to sit for one hour or half an hour in the morning or in the evening. That kind of meditation is not going to help, because if you meditate for one hour, then for twenty-three hours you will be doing just the opposite of it. Meditation can be victorious: witnessing is such a method that it can spread over twenty-four hours of your day.

Q.
What are the different meditation techniques?
A.
Meditation involves concentrating on something to take our attention beyond the random thought activity that is usually going on in our heads. This can involve a solid object or picture, a mantra, breath, or guided visualization. Typical objects employed include a candle flame or a flower. Some people use pictures, such as a mandala - a highly colored symmetric painting - or a picture of a spiritual teacher in a high meditative state. Mantras are sounds which have a flowing, meditative quality and may be repeated out loud or inwardly. The breath is also a common focal point. Finally, guided visualization is also considered by some to be a form of meditation. A guided visualization can help to bring one into a meditative state; also, visualization may be used once a meditative state has been reached to produce various results.

Q.
How a person can control his thoughts?
A.
Thoughts are nothing but your experiences and expectations.Just keep watching your thoughts as a witness, slowly they will start disappearing.

Q.
What is Yoga?
A.
Developed in India, Yoga is a psycho-physical discipline with roots going back about 5,000 years. Today, most Yoga practices in the West focuses on the physical postures called "asanas," breathing exercises called "pranayama," and meditation. However, there's more to it than that, and the deeper you go the richer and more diverse the tradition becomes. The word "Yoga" means union. Linguistically, it is related to the Old English "yoke." Traditionally, the goal of Yoga is union with the Absolute, known as Brahman, or with Atman, the true self. These days the focus is often on the more down-to-earth benefits of Yoga, including improved physical fitness, mental clarity, greater self-understanding, stress control and general well-being. Spirituality, however, is a strong underlying theme to most practices. The beauty of Yoga is in its versatility, allowing practitioners to focus on the physical, psychological or spiritual, or a combination of all three.

Q.
Swami ji, who is God. We human beings think he looks like us same way animals think he looks like them then where is God and how he looks and from where he is controlling each and every thing of this world?
A.
He is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient. He doesn't create the world. He manifests in all forms. He lives within you too. When you experience him within you and others, all your questions stop.
