This series will help you to develop the ability to sit still long enough to be able to concentrate the mind so that it becomes balanced, steady, one-pointed, and able to concentrate on one object. When this concentration is intense enough, and sustained for long enough, then that concentration (dharana) becomes contemplation (dhyana), or what is called “meditation. If meditation is intense enough and sustained for long enough, then it will transform into a state of cosmic awareness, or bliss-divine (samadhi).
"Just as you cannot “do yoga,” you cannot “do meditation.” Yoga is the natural state of union with the divine source, happiness itself. What we can do are practices, which may reveal to us our resistance to that natural state. The practices of meditation, like the practices of yoga, are practices of letting go; letting go of tendencies and obscurations to the cosmic state of awareness, limitless joy. Meditation is one of the primary practices that allow us to let go, and let God." -Shri Sharon Gannon
