Dispenser of Golden Mean

It is not a bold claim to proclaim that Vishvas Meditation provides us the golden mean of leading a peaceful, blissful life which is not shaken by the extremes of our sojourn on this battlefield of life. However courageous one may be, calmness of mind is shattered when blows after blows blow the wind of devastation over someone. With regular Vishvas Meditation you get to know that you are Absolute Existence, Absolute Knowledge and Absolute Bliss and no amount of hardship can conquer your true nature. In the vast span of life, a man is easily tossed from one extreme of joy to another extreme of sorrow. At one time, one may be burning mid-night oil and at another time, one may be killing time in idle gossip or back-biting. Sometimes he is extremely optimistic finding everything in the universe glorious and splendid. At other times thick dark clouds of pessimism engulf him hankering for a silver lining somewhere. To him, the world appears to be a place of destruction and devastation. In order to avoid such a situation of the extremes of one type or another, one should devote oneself to Vishvas Meditation daily on regular basis.

Gurudev says, "With Vishvas Meditation, you get a steadfast faith in yourself, your true nature that you would never lead the life of extravagance. It would be a balanced life because you won't be guided by the dictates of your mind. It will be your slave as meditation takes you to your true Self leaving this demon ego far behind."

To lead a peaceful life in this world of trial and tribulations is just like walking on the edge of a razor. One loses the balance very easily and is swept away with the tide of time. One who wavers not among sense-storms and whose mind broods placid, soothed with holy wont "attains the nameless joy beyond all scope of sense; revealed to soul - and only to soul" leads a life of bliss. Himalayan mountains of difficulties won't shake him from his true path of righteousness because for him, self is not a distant entity dwelling far away from him. Gurudev Shri Swami Ji's usual sermon is:-

मैं और मेरा यार, दोनो इक बस्ती में बसते हैं। *
किस्मत की क्या खूबी है, कि दर्शन को तरसते हैं।।

With the deeper plunge into Vishvas Meditation the aspirant does feel His presence and that person is known as a perfect yogi by Lord Krishna in Bhagwad Gita.

In Arnold's translation of Chapter VI 19-23 of Bhagvad Gita, description of a perfect yogi is:-

Steadfast as a lamp burns in a place sheltered from wind
Such is the likeness of yogi's mind
Shut from the sense storms and burning bright to Heaven
When mind broods placid, soothed with holy wont,
When self contemplates self and in itself hath comfort.

 

When it knows the nameless joy beyond all scope of sense, revealed to soul - only to soul and, knowing, wavers not True to the farther Truth, when, holding, this. It deems no other treasure compatible, but, harbored there cannot be stirred or shook by any gravest grief, call that state peace that happy severance yoga; call that man the perfect yogi, when mind eventually becomes no-mind and the thoughtlessness prevails in deep meditation, self contemplates self. As Gurudev Shri Ji chants in a very holy voice

ये सैर क्या है अजब अनोखा, कि राम मुझमें मैं राम में हूँ।
बगैर सूरत अजब है जलवा, कि राम मुझमें मैं राम में हूँ।।

It is a fact in letter and spirit that when you dive deep into Vishvas Meditation, you enjoy everlasting Bliss beyond expression in words. Continuous daily meditation won't let anyone lead the life of extremes either in joy or sorrow. He will lead a balanced life full of peace and joy as explained by Lord Krishna in Bhagwad Gita.

युक्ताहारविहारस्य युक्तचेष्ठस्य कर्मसु
युक्तस्वप्नाववोधस्य योगी भवति दुःखहा।

An aspirant crosses the ocean of suffering through having a balanced food, following a life of good conduct, rightful behavior, proper deeds and keeping the balance of sleep and awakening. Excessive of anything misses the mark of life.

In our daily life, we tend to go to the extremes and suffer in the end by missing the aim of life which is Self-Realization. Even if we do not succeed in attaining our aim, Vishvas Meditation provides us a blissful life, a balanced life and a dispenser of golden mean.
