PRACTISE OF MEDITATION and
thinking of nothing else is constantly engaged in contemplation of
God attains the supremely effulgent Divine Purusha

"On those ever UNITED THROUGH MEDITATION WITH ME and
worshipping me with love, I confer that yoga of wisdom through which
they come to me".
VII) Gita - Chapter 12 -
Slokas 6 and 7:
"On the other hand, those who depending exclusively on me and
surrendering all actions to me, worship me, CONSTANTLY MEDITATING ON ME WITH SINGLE-MINDED
DEVOTION. These Arjuna, I speedily deliver from the ocean of birth and
death; their mind being fixed on Me".
Slokas 6 and 7:
"Therefore, fix your mind on
Me, and establish you intellect in Me alone, thereafter you
will abide solely in Me. There is no doubt about
"If you cannot steadily fix the mind on Me, Arjuna, then seek to
attain Me through the Yoga of repeated practice".
VIII) Gita - Chapter 13 -

Supreme spirit in the heart with the help of their refined and sharp
intellect; others realise it thro' the discipline of knowledge, and
others again, thro' the discipline of action".

VII. THE POWER OF TRUE -
(The Main Secrets revealed by Bhagawan Shri.
Lahari Krishna IN HIS OWN WORDS and thro' His own practical
experiences in Meditation)
1) MEDITATION IS
".......So you must MEDITATE OF HIM. In these meetings,
MEDITATION IS VERY IMPORTANT, not shouting..........."
2) THIS ASHRAM IS
A PLACE FOR MEDITATION:
".......We are seeking God to get into more love of God. THIS
ASHRAM IS A PLACE FOR MEDITATION: for shouting people you can shout;
for singing people you can sing; and there is no restriction
for your worship......."
OFCOURSE IS VERY USEFUL FOR US:
".......But the main thing is MEDITATION OFCOURSE IS VERY USEFUL FOR
US. Yoga is a very good exercise and makes your body
strong. As you meditate for hours
together, you feel sometimes that THE POWER OF GOD coming into
you and you will feel weak. Controlling the mind
is not easy. But what am I telling you? You can touch
the mouth like this (straight) or you can touch it like this also
(round about). So many people struggle to get into that
peace. What is the blessing of
God coming down now? He comes down to bless you
MEANS TO REMEMBER WHAT ALL HE HAS DONE FOR US:
".......What all the Unseen God spoke, that people could not
understand. That's why He said, "You must go in the
woods. Listen to nature. Listen to birds. Look at
the ant............ So you have to study and that's why ? TO
MEDITATE. MEDITATION means to
remember what all He has done for us. We see the
birds, trees and other things..........."
5) MEDITATION IS
COMPARED TO THE COW CHEWING BACK THE CUD ONCE AGAIN AFTER THE FOOD
HAS GONE INTO THE STOMACH:
".......Do not eat pig meat why? Even though it is
clovenfooted, it will not chew (the cud). It will not
MEDITATE. But cows will
MEDITATE. After biting and chewing the grass, it will
meditate, "Is it right what I eat? Have anybody learnt lesson
thro' me? Have I done the perfect will of God? " It will
think like that. Pigs are not like that........"
6) MEDITATE ON
THAT NAME "LAHARI":
".......All the Bhagawans who MEDITATE ON THAT NAME "LAHARI" then
only they get some relief. So if you go and ask them they say,
Don't utter that name. Now some people divide the same.
They say, LA, LA, LA. Then they say HARI, HARI, HARI,.
So that name will not be told. That is why God's name is cut
in two and said Hari, Hari, Hari. In that name there is
power. If there is power in that Name don't you think there is
power in HIM who possesses that name?.........."
7) IF YOU MEDITATE
FOR EIGHT HOURS (DAILY) IN ONE OR TWO WEEKS YOU WILL FIND OUT GOD
".......Praying is also working. Many people think that
praying is not working. IF YOU MEDITATE FOR EIGHT HOURS, IN
ONE OR TWO WEEKS YOU WILL FIND OUT GOD WITHOUT FAIL. Even if
you don't find Him, He will pull you. Why are you here in the
Ashram? To pray more......."
8) WHO CAN GIVE
'THE REMEDY' TO OVERCOME THE FIVE SENSES ?:
".......Everybody will say if you do Yogic exercises you can control
the five senses. They want to go to the jungles; they go to a
place where there is no sound trouble and THEY WANT TO MEDITATE with
the idea that they can overcome the five senses. Even Buddha
said he was under a tree and got this revelation. Any ordinary
man can say all the troubles is because of this lust, BUT WHO CAN
GIVE 'THE REMEDY' TO OVERCOME THE FIVE SENSES ??........."
9) NARAYANA IS THE
ONLY PERSON WHO HAS CONTROLLED ALL THE FIVE SENSES WITHOUT
".......You know man has got a spinal column: thro' that only the
FIVE SENSES act. That is why it is called Aadhi-Seshan
(serpent). Narayana is sleeping on Aadhi-Sesha. He is
lying on a serpent. IT ONLY DEPICTS THAT HE IS THE ONLY PERSON
WHO HAS CONTROLLED ALL THE FIVE SENSES WITHOUT SIN. So,
without touching Him you cannot control the five
10) YOU GET MORE
POWER TO OVERCOME:
".......This MEDITATING and all, spend more time... Because we have
to search God more and more and MEDITATION and like that you get more power to overcome.
11) SPEND YOUR
TIME AT LEAST ONE HOUR EVERY NIGHT:
".......But you are so busy you have no time in the nights
even. So unnecessary things you are to cut away, unnecessary
visiting and all and then SPEND your TIME AT LEAST ONE HOUR EVERY
NIGHT MEDITATING IN YOUR BED. GOD WILL BLESS YOU. Now I
get up every morning; from 2 O'Clock to 6 O'Clock. I just sit
and MEDITATE and it is a great blessing in my life. The whole
day I can be busy; BUT THIS MEDITATION HELPS YOU. But for you
I do not want you to give so much time;
at least one hour you are to give in the morning thanking
God for all His things. That is a prayer. Can't you
thank him for every breath He gives us? We are so delicate but
it is free and everything free. So we have to thank Him.
That THANKFULNESS brings us a blessing.........."
12) BE AWAKE IN
THE NIGHT (PRAY AND MEDITATE):
".......When it is night time in the world, that is the DAY-TIME for
Him. If you just sleep even at six then in what way are you
connected to God? Sleep in the afternoon and BE AWAKE IN THE NIGHT (Pray and
Meditate) I am keeping awake even at three in the morning.
People in the house take this as a disease and give me sleeping
tablets. Even then I can't sleep....."
13) GET UP AT 5 O'
CLOCK AND SIT AND MEDITATE:
".......You don't have to go to the jungles and MEDITATE for
years. In your own house before you go to sleep spend about a
half an hour MEDITATING. You will realise God in your
life. GET UP AT 5'O CLOCK AND SIT AND MEDITATE. Even if
you are married don't worry; even married people can get the
CONCENTRATING ON GOD YOU WON'T GET THE POWER, NOT SO
".......Some people say, "I am old, I want to sleep. But if
you pray well, you won't get sleep. When I say, you pray, I
ask you only to close your eyes and MEDITATE. Keeping a
pillow, sit comfortable, close your eyes and MEDITATE - Practise
like that. In that sleep itself you'll get THE POWER.
But without concentrating on God you won't get that Power, not so
15) YOU'LL GET THE
"CHARGE" CONTINUOUSLY COMING. "CHARGE" WILL NEVER COME UNLESS
YOU PLUG IT IN CHRIST-JESUS (OR NARAYANA):
".......When you go to sleep how should you sleep? Suppose you
think of eating Biriyani (a tasty hot meat meal) in a wedding house,
in the night you'll get all Biriyani visions. So what you have
to do? When you go to sleep, you think and say "LORD, I HAVE switched on thee only; all my
love is only for thee". (and closing the eyes
meditate in that thought). When you get up also, you must be
in that thought only. Then you'll
get "the charge" continuously coming. "CHARGE will
never come unless you plug it in Christ-Jesus and take it out.
You must not plug your concentration on human beings. If you
practise like this after sometime you can sleep like that and in the
night it will CHARGE you. I'll do like that only, just I'll
sleep on my knees. AFTER EIGHT HOURS WHEN I AWAKE A MIGHTY POWER WILL COME INSIDE
MEDITATION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN "MECHANICAL
".......It (Meditation) is more than your shouting. You say
'Thoram, Thoram' (Thothram means praise the Lord) - but this
(Meditation) is more powerful than 'thoram'. You shout (with
your mouth) 'thoram' casting your eyes (and straying your thoughts)
everywhere. But this (MEDITATION) is not like that because you concentrate all your thoughts on
it, no place for other thoughts, you have to bring all your
thoughts on that. Then that is called "TRANSCENDENTAL
17) YOU WON'T GO
WEAK, THAT IS THE IMPORTANCEOF MEDITATION:
".......One man wanted to see what I was doing in the night.
How I looked fresh without sleeping. So he came behind and was
watching me through the window. I was in my knees (IN
MEDITATION) till early morning. I was looking very fresh in
the morning aftrer I got up. Why? what did I do?
" I just connect my battery IN HIM and even if I lie down and
sleep, I go off to "Nishtai" (Meditation) and (I said) that gives me
lot of power. Are you not feeling weak sir? No, you won't go weak. That is the importance
of MEDITATION. Nowadays they do 'Yoga' for the sake
of body. When you eat good food, your body automatically
fattens. Then to reduce the body two exercises and running are
18) MEDITATE THE
".......You can meditate the WHOLE NIGHT, and in the morning you can
19) WHEN WE
MEDITATE HE WILL SHOW WHAT PLAN HE HAS KEPT FOR US:
".......Why Yoga came in India ? FOR MEDITATION.
Important people doing MEDITATION are only in India: There is
no MEDITATION in foreign countries. They keep cushions, and
all that like doing exercise, they get up and sit, get up and
sometimes kneel down. There won't be any devotion in
that. They just sing all mournful songs with solemn
music. But they won't get the deep spiritual experiencies
which we have. God should speak to us. What is
being spoken is God's Word. What is written is not
important. WHEN WE MEDITATE HE WILL SHOW THE PLAN HE HAS KEPT
FOR US. If there is a mango seedling, only that plant will
know what plan He has kept inside and others won't know. Only
when the plant come out and we see the leaves, we can find out and
not before that........".
20) HE TALKS TO
YOU AND GUIDES YOU:
".......What is the blessing of Meditation? He talks to you
and guides you. In my life God has talked to me many times and
guided me - go here and go there like that. We don't spend
much time Meditating and asking God to talk to us. We are so
busy in this world we have no time to give to God. God comes
to us, "My man, give some time to me". But he (men) will say,
"No I am very busy I have to earn money". After many
years death will come to you and then you will say; "Please give me
some time to think about God"........"
21) IF YOU SIT
LIKE THAT (IN MEDITATION) GOD WILL SPEAK TO YOU:
".......See, Isaac goes in the evenings to MEDITATE - (Gen
4:63). But when or where are we meditating? Has
anyone sat quietly for one or two hours and listened to His
voice? Now if you sit like that God will speak to you. But
you, like telephone bell, press the button and before the
man (Lord) could come, you run away finishing your prayers.
You see the door bell. You press it. Before the man
could come from inside the house, you think that he is not there and
go away. This is our prayers. If you come and wait, you
can talk to him and go. Then only we can talk......."
22) YOU OVERCOME
THE STING OF DEATH:
".......So yesterday we saw in "Kaivalya Upanishad" To know him
eternal life. And you can have no other way for Eternal
life. IF YOU MEDITATE ON HIM, you overcome the sting of
death. It is in Upanishad.
WHEN YOU TOUCH
THAT YOU TOO GO TO THE HOLY PLACE
".........Look at the Sacrifice.
You may say, Brother, You are that sacrifice. You are
asked to look on the Brazen Serpent. Life is inside that
serpent. Not to see down. This is called TRUE
TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION OR IMMORTAL YOGA. Not just
sitting here and thinking of your stomach. This has to
go TRANSCENDENTAL, to Lucifer's time, to creation's time
and go to early time when the First-born was created.
When you touch that thou too go to the Holy
WE GO INTO THE HOLY OF HOLIES AND TOUCH
".......So today you call this' as
Meditation on Early Sacrifice. First, you may
not know what is happening. It is dark. Ayyah is
telling to see somewhere far off. Because I am telling
you to go back and back into millions and millions of years
before the world was created; before the angels including
Lucifer were created when there was no mountain and no
sea. We go into the Holy of Holies and touch
YOU WILL SEE YOUR COUNTER PART
".......So now we have a faith which is
something not written in the word. This is called "TRUE
TRANSCENDENTAL MEDITATION". It is not Meditation of two
thousand years back. It has to cross and leave Adam's
time and then go beyond Millions of Yugas. You have to
still penetrate into the time (age) when there was not one
mountain or tree. Then still when you go forward, you
will see your counter-part there. Then you come to the
realization: I was before the world began. You are
getting into the Holy Place. BUT THE BRIDE MEMBERS HAVE
GONE EVEN FURTHER AND ALSO HAVE
PLEASE NOTE CAREFULLY
At this junction one has to clearly understand that when our
LORD-GOD asks us to 'go back in Meditation' or look up'. He
only wants us to MEDITATE ON HIM (His Own Human-Form) - bringing
back to our remembrance ( to the extent possible) the Great Incident
of Supreme Sacrifice (That took place millions and millions of years
But at the same time we should be aware that the very Lord Himself
has now come down directly in our midst and we have to LOOK TO HIM FOR LIFE and not on top.
(into the void) People without proper revelation look on
top. They say mechanically "Aadhi Bali, Aadhi Bali, Aadhi Bali
and miss the very Aadhi-Bali-God Himself who is now living among us
without Death. REDEMPTION is
completed on earth only by God coming down as the son of
David (In King David's lineage) He had to totally purchase and
redeem us from all our bondages by paying the FULL AMOUNT ( total
release of His Holy Ghost in the flesh) only Now. That is why
the son of David is called the REDEMER ( the one and only one who
lives without death eternally) Having this great revelation Job has
declared boldly "MY REDEEMER LIVETH !!"
VIII. PERSONAL EXPERIENCES OF BHAGAWAN
SHRI. LAHARI KRISHNA IN
WHEN I WAS IN
MEDITATION IN A JUNGLE A GREAT JOY CAME INTO MY
".........One day WHEN I WAS IN
MEDITATION in a jungle, A GREAT JOY came into my life. I
got Shanthi (Peace)......."
I USED TO BE ON MY KNEES FOR EIGHT HOURS
".......When I was in Florida, for one
month, I used to be on my knees for eight hours daily.
After eight hours I'll take bath and come. When one
month completed I could not come here. I suffered a
lot. In those days suffering means, I used to go
walking. I will go to all denominations. Then I
met all the preachers in 1960. Met Oral Roberts and
others Everyone will say, join us, join us. I told, "I
have joined with Jesus, then how can I join you? "Then
they came to fight with me........"
I USED TO MEDITATE FOR HOURS
".......When I got saved, God never spoke
to me properly. After 10 years I got the Holy Ghost,
speaking in tongues. At that time I USED TO MEDITATE FOR
HOURS TOGETHER. When my wife and children go to sleep, I
will sit on my bed and meditate for 8, 10 hours like
that. He does not speak in 1 hour or 2 hours, 3,4,5,6,
hours. I don't know how God speaks every second to
some people as they claim. It is all
false. Then I wanted to stop the prayer. The
power won't allow me to stop. THEN SUDDENLY A LIGHT
SHINES INSIDE YOUR BRAIN. Then the Voice comes; "MY SON,
READ MY WORD FOR POWER". How can you have power without
knowing the word,. Then again the Voice came WHILE
MEDITATING, "Read my Word for power and guidance". So I
didn't go for preaching.........."
WHEN I PRAY OR
MEDITATE, I LOOK UP ;
"..........Sivanandha Yogi, he got a
revelation just like Buddha and he said, 'It is not my eyes
turning it is SOMEBODY INSIDE ME turning the eye. That
is a great revelation. So because you close the eyes, it
doesn't mean that your eyes are closed. You can have
your eyes closed by showing open eyes and you can have your
eyes open by showing closed eyes.......... It is not the eyes
but the man inside you that is the problem. Now listen,
I want to look here, my head turns and I look here. WHEN
I PRAY OR MEDITATE, I LOOK UP LIKE THIS. I DON'T CLOSE
THE EYES. I LOOK UP AND MEDITATE. So my mind
cannot turn this way or that way because that man in me is
making my eyes look up. This makes you take the
effort...... The way I am telling you in the "Motor
way". By that way you can cross the river of rebirth
very easily. ALL YOGIS AND MEDITATION PEOPLE are like
the rowing boatman (SELF-EFFORTS) but for me I HAVE AN
"ENGINE" and that "ENGINE" WILL TAKE
I WAS IN MY KNEES
IN MEDITATION TILL EARLY MORNING
".........One man wanted to see what I
was doing in the night. How I looked fresh wishout
sleeping. So he came behind and was watching me through
the window. I was in my knees ( IN MEDITATION) till
early morning. I was looking very fresh in the morning
after I got up. Why? What did I do? "I just
connect my battery IN HIM and even if I lie down and sleep, I
go off to "NISHTTAI" (MEDITATION) and ( I said ) that gives me
lot of power. Are you not feeling weak, Sir? No,
you won't go weak. That is the importance of
PROJECTING OF THE SPIRIT INTO THE OUTER
"..........But the earth ( it was lost)
by self-Man want to become holy. He wants to go from
planet to planet. I read Bogar's books. He says I
went to China, Japan and all..... Rome, Putting a Gulisai
(pill). So I thought, he must be a great man. He
has put the "formula" for that pill. He says so many
kilos of Ganja (Opium) you must take (to prepare the
One day when I was in Madras, 'one man gave me some betal
beeda to chew, me and Mr. Ebenezer..... with tobacco..
We couldn't stand. Both closed the door and fell on the
beds. And in the night, I am going to Tondiarpet and so
many places. What man This is something very nice.
But I am lying down there; but THE WESTERNERS, THEY SAY THIS
IS PROJECTION OF THE SPIRIT INTO THE OUTER WORLD. After
that, I am very careful in taking this beda (betal packet)...
If you think it is wrong, you ask Bro. Ebenezer how he
felt. (In that state) I saw Bro. Desikan having a
fight at home about nearly 15 miles away. I told Bro.
Ebenezer, "There is a big fight at Desikan's house; Next day
early morning, he (Desikan) comes and says; There was a big
fight in our house. So immediately I could have gone
after that (practise)....."
I WAS A SADHU IN
A SOFFRON ROBE AND GROWING A
".........You don't need to go the
jungles, in your very home you can bring heaven to you.
One day I thought being a bachelor I can get more of
God. I was a sadhu in a saffron robe and growing a beard
and was going in the jungles there thinking that I was going
to heaven that way. I never know that God could be found
out in the very house. You don't find God in the Jungles
you don't find him in the churches...."
MEDITATION ON THE NEW
"..........But when I am sleeping.
He wakes me up suddenly even against my comfort. I will
say, "What Lord? You are waking me up now" And
then within ten minutes or about fifteen minutes.
"Message will come one after another. That makes me
weak. THEN I LIE DOWN AND MEDITATE OVER THAT.
My! It is terrible. Then immediately I come and
