This is a three-day discourse series delivered by Poojya Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha in New Delhi.
Swamiji begins with a deep analysis of the composite inner personality of man. This exposition opens up new avenues of thought and introspection for a discerning listener.
Swamiji defines meditation as “abiding in the middle presence”. Mind is the source of numerous thoughts. The arising and cessation of thoughts can be distinguished only by the neutral middle presence which is referred to as ‘I’. Sitting in solitude, plunging deep inside and unravelling the inner process is the purpose of Meditation.
Swamiji exhorts us not to be enmeshed in external perceptions and activities. ‘I’ is the centre of all perceptions and activities and meditation is meant to unearth this inner splendour. Try to get a glimpse of the uncontaminated, unbounded Soul. Meditation is the only way to understand its secret, says Swamiji.

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
