Although one learns the skill of meditation by actually practising it, one must try to follow the basic instructions given by Jagadguru Kripalu Ji Maharaj.
Mind is the life and soul of the meditation . While meditating, the mind should be focused on the Naam, Roop, Guna, Leela, Dham or the Saints of God.
While meditating, one must bring a feeling of extreme powerlessness or deenata . The feeling should be stronger than a helpless grass blade which is crushed all the time and can do nothing.
The Sadhak should practise extreme tolerance like the stem of a tree. Whatever happens in the world, the effort should be to keep the mind in God and Guru only.
The Sadhak should feel that God and Guru are sitting right in front of him and that the form he is visualizing is Real and Divine.
The Sadhak should get the feeling that the seperation from God is the reason for his sorrow and grief. The Sadhak should shed tears and long for God to appear.
