Dhyana & Beyond
Dhyana & Beyond
Dhyana (meditation) is a state of mind when one truly and totally dissolves into a state of high focus. In popular terms, it is often called ‘being in the zone’ — a state of flow. This is only possible when the mind is absolutely under one’s control.
In Yoga, one often imagines a Yogi seated crossed-legged, deep within a forest, or at the foot of a steep and majestic mountain, eyes closed, palms resting on the knees, fingers in a hand mudra (gesture). A halo seems to surround his body and his often shorn head. Well, that is how ancient Indian sages sat in meditation, and there may still be many Yogis who sit in contemplation like this.
Nonetheless, it is but one way to practice meditation. Whenever we are totally absorbed in an activity that interests us and has our whole attention, we are in a state of meditation. This ability to maintain unswerving attention in any activity is the secret of success. This practice becomes a powerful tool for a practitioner to conquer oneself and transcend beyond the realm of human consciousness. Pratimoksha, the Yoga Alliance US accredited yoga studio offers meditation classes for all ages.
