Rakhi: Can anybody meditate on om.what is best method of doing meditation?
Swami Ramswarup: Anyone can meditate (name-jaap) on OM but first it is learnt from learned acharya.

PROCEDURE OF CHANTING

Please, start the day by chanting Gayatri mantra in the early morning sitting on suitable asan like Sukhasan, Siddhasan or Padmasan etc. concentrate on the point between two eyebrows which is called “Agyachakra”. The Gayatri mantra should be chanted along with its meaning both times. Also, please try to perform daily hawan even with Gayatri mantra. Then try to study any of my books daily and put up question if any.

After 15 days chant the Gayatri mantra only thrice thereafter do the name jaap of Almighty God-“Om”. The jaap must be done daily by heart and not orally.

Yes it is to be learnt first from learned acharya.

Meditation

Meditation is the seventh step of Ashtang Yog. Eight steps of Ashtang Yog are- Yam, Niyam, Asan, Prannayam, Pratyahar, Dhranna, Dhyan, Samadhi. So, to meditate properly, one has to first listen to Vedas and know properly about Ashtang Yoga under the guidance of learned acharya of Vedas and Yog.

So, to meditate one has to know first about six steps of Ashtang Yog and then he has to reach on seventh stage of meditation. Proper worship of God according to Vedas, like to do yajyen/havan with ved mantras, name jaap of God enables the aspirant to start practice of Ashtang Yoga.

Swami Ramswarup: Sat Sri Akal, beti. Ishwar kee prapti Guru Kripa , mata-pita , Guru kee seva se, naam jaap se, Brahmacharya dharann karne se, yogabhyaas karne se aur Guru se vedic vidya sunkar uspar achrann karne se hotee hai. Yeh vidya thodi kathin avashya hai lekin asambhav nahi hai. Yeh pehle Guru se seekhnee chahiye. Is sadhna dwara bhale-bure aadi ka theek theek gyan swayam ho jaata hai.
