When the Universe surrenders to the stillness within you: Living in Meditation Today, in meditation, there are numerous techniques, trends and crash courses and everyone has an opinion on which is the best. But, in essence, what is meditation according to the scriptures? This is what Swami Tejomayananda seeks to answer in his series of talks alone with sessions of guided meditation conducted at Chinmaya International Foundation (The Academic & Research Wing of Chinmaya Mission) in 2012. These talks are based on Dhyanaswarupam, an original composition of Swami Tejomayananda that draws inspiration from the Upanishads. Delving into what the Upanishads means by the word "meditation," he seeks to explain the theoretical aspects and the preparatory steps that need to be taken. Once the mind is ready, he then proceeds to guide the listeners in the actual practice of meditation.
