What I want to share from my experiences is that love conquers everything.It is my hope that it will inspire the readers to open their hearts to the Divine. If we can try to understand that we all are equally part of the Divine and are here to achieve this greater Truth and to realise our Self - if we make this our goal and do everything with Love…then everything will be lovely and you will always be happy.

A Meditation given by Sri Swami Vishwananda

We do this meditation. When we can practice, I will use OM as a reference. You can use any Divine form that you feel close with. Because OM is the cosmic sound, it resounds in everybody’s heart. Even if you create a form, you give OM a form, at the same time you focus on it. OM is just vibration.

Leave your eyes open, don’t close them, because in the moment you close them, you start thinking. I want you to take five deep breaths – in and out and when you breathe out, drop your shoulders and release all the tension from them. Take your time. Breathe in slowly and breathe out slowly. You don’t need to be quick. Now, close your eyes. Use the creative power that God has given to mankind. As God is the Creator, so you are also a creator. So, let’s create the Divine form, at your third eye, in between your eyebrows. Create an OM sign, if you know how it looks, or you can create a cross, or the form of the Divine Mother, Krishna, any Divine form. Look with the inward eye... look at how beautiful the form is and listen to your breathing. Breathe the Divine name in, slowly. Breathe until you cannot inhale anymore. Then hold you breath and focus at your third eye on the Divine form, and breathe out again, the same Divine name. If you have a guru mantra, it is nice, that you do the guru mantra with the breath. Don’t forget to listen to your breath, too. It’s a great help. This helps you to focus. Forget about everything. Just let your focus be on the Divine form or on any Divine aspect that you have created. Slowly, let it grow. This divine aspect is the same size as your face, which is full of light. It is growing more and more. Half of your body, you see in just this Divine form. Now you see your whole body and this Divine aspect is the same size, and this Divine aspect becoming bigger, you see your physical body inside this Divine form. You see yourself in the Divine. You see that your body is becoming light and merging into this divine form. Continue going deeper and deeper in it. Now slowly, reduce this divine aspect. Bring it near your heart. Let it merge in your heart. Feel the love, and see the light that this aspect brings to you.

Now slowly open your eyes, but stay within this state.
