Spiritual Equation – Ceteris Paribus Guru


When we talk of meditation, we are actually talking about hypnosis; the two words are synonyms, for those who understand both. In this article, I will be discussing ‘dhyan’.

The present day human being is a devolved version of the beings of the vedic period, where dharma was foremost—even before self and therefore the pollution levels of air, water and soil were negligible. It is only when the human being began retracting his vision towards his individual self and finally, in today’s yug, not looking beyond oneself, the environment responded and a plethora of diseases and problems of all kinds—mental, emotional and physical took gigantic and multi-faceted forms.


The human race today is on the verge of extinction only due to its myopic vision of Creation, limiting to oneself only—the self-destructing philosophy of ‘I, me and myself…’ all this is leading to a low level of consciousness and vice versa, a vicious circle.

The practice of dhyan is a clear exit route from this, but dhyan comes with certain preconditions. Patanjali said—yam, niyam, asan, pranayam, pratyahar, dharna, DHYAN. Sounds complicated and also very cumbersome to the modern level of consciousness, but a natural daily practice for those who are evolved. I have given an equation, which would lead to the state of dhyan… an exit route to all present day maladies:

Service/seva leads to good karmas, which leads to dhyan, which leads to gyan, which leads to vairagya, which leads to reality and bliss.

**Ceteris Paribus Guru

In the present yug, there is no other way. If you attempt dhyan otherwise, without the preconditions, then you will only be doing meditation or a self-hypnosis and just fooling yourself. Here the focus would be on an object called pratyay. Maximum you will reach is at a subconscious level where you will daydream. You will give it up after a while as thoughts will never leave you and you will get frustrated, dhyan will never happen.

At Dhyan Ashram we teach dhyan, the way it is, through the practice of Sanatan Kriya under a Guru, free of cost. For us it is not a business but a seva, which takes us to higher planes of consciousness.

A seeker should always look for preconditions whenever he/she wants to venture on this path, which are:

  1. Dhyan should be a sadhna, not a business.
  2. There should be a living Guru, for only he/she can give you the vision and experience of shakti.
  3. The Guru should exude the glow and health which you have been promised.
  4. The purpose of dhyan should be evolution and nothing else, sanitised of any commercial activity.

Only then will the effect of maya reduce and reality will dawn, otherwise the Guru will make all the money and you will float in bliss, the hypnotic one!
