Purpose of Meditation: Hong Sau Class – 1/21/1984

Purpose of Meditation – meditation connects you to divine energy

When practicing Hong Sau, do it with the thought that your breath is a cosmic phenomena. It is not just you breathing, you are participating in a greater flow of “cosmic breath.”

At the beginning of the talk, Kriyananda says, “Any discussion of how to meditate should begin with the question, why meditation?”

Meditation helps us face challenges. We can attune ourselves so completely to God that we loose the consciousness of the small self and merge into the Divine.

Kriyananda explains that the breath is the result of the movement of energy in the spine.

You can use this recording for personal or group meditations.

There are three MP3’s: The entire talk, the chant, and the 24 minute guided Hong Sau meditation.
