Meditation Gives You Direct Insight and Knowledge

Our Yoga Sutra of the Week 3.5 says: When focus, meditation and blissful absorption are practiced together, insight and true wisdom shine forth!

Meditation teacher Ryan Kurczak gives this commentary on Yoga Sutra 3.5: “Concentrated meditation to the stage of complete absorption into the object or ideal contemplated gives direct insight and knowledge into that object or ideal.”

You can see a good example in the picture above regarding love.  Another example is when we meditate on divine qualities until we are aware of nothing else, we can experience those divine qualities first hand. Then our insight is born of knowledge rather than belief or just reading or hearing about something.

Knowledge from direct experience results from the combined skillful practice of concentration, meditation, and blissful absorption.

Come and get the experience of divine qualities first hand at 7:15pm Friday Night Meditation Class with Sri Ekan!
