images. i have recorded about 200 images.

Some are in abstract form.

meditation

Dear Namasivayam,

 

There will be no answer to your question ... or many answers can be found ...

Some may have visions ... other don't have ... yet the meditator is always the same.

It may not be so important if there are visions or not ...

And if any surely one should not spend the time in counting them. This would be absurd.

This is like you are going through a street and count what you are seeing.

It may be a playful entertainment at times though.

 

Bhagavan advices to cling to the meditator, not to the visions.

The one who meditates is always there. This is good, isn't it? So one needs neither care

if visions nor if no visions.

 

Some say, visions may happen when meditation reaches a certain debth or is done intently. But here

someone else - more experienced - should then answer.

I myself had one vision-like experience once only ... which had to do with Bhagavan ...

and it never repeated :) I like to remember as it told something what is still felt

much important to be understood in Bhagavan's teaching. So the importance I feel is not in the

happening of the vision - but what it was pointing to.

 

In Zen I have learned from teachers, that they say, if a vision comes - and even

if it is that of Buddha -

one should kill this vision-Buddha.

This may point to the same as in Bhagavan's atma vichara, where one asks deep within:

to whom does it - the vision - appear - and hold to that and not to the vision.

 

Kind regards

Gabriele
