Meditation(Dhayana) is entirely different from concentration( Ekaagrata). Concentration means applying your thoughts and mental energy to a point, thus it is often called one-pointedness of mind. Whereas, meditation means going beyond your mind.
‘Bheja Shor karta hai’ a hit song from a Bollywood movie is worth mentioning here. Our mind is constantly murmering, talking, shouting, planning, dreaming, desiring, complaining; yes, the mind is constantly making a lot of noise. Meditation is one of the eight sutras of Yoga that calms the mind and helps you go beyond the incessant rattle the mind is producing every jiffy.
“Dhayana Aivam Chakra Vigyan Jyoti’ ,a book penned by Acharya Gopal Krishna ji, throws light on the deeper insight of meditation (Dhayana) and chakras in the human body.
Practicing OORJA breathing along with meditation is benefitting numerous followers of Yogacharya Gopal Krishna ji in attaining improved consciousness and revitalized self.
