I recently read your thought provoking and heart touching book “meditation the art and science”. i am a novice in the path of spirituality and meditation. I want to know one thing which I missed in the book is experiences, visions, miracles in meditation .what are the inner experiences while meditating i want to know it earnestly from you. i don’t know why but the void will be filled when I receive your reply swami ji.


In my meditation I seek only the durable peace and total quiet. No other experiences that are distractions on spiritual path of atman-realization and are games the mind plays. Seek only tranquility. That is all I teach by the methods taught by my Gurudeva Swami Rama of the Himalayas. These we teach at our Ashram in Rishikesh.
