Practice Meditation with All the Sincerity; Success is All Yours!

– Maharshi Santsewiji Paramhans







[Verses composed by Maharshi Santsewi ji Paramhans are very few in numbers; in fact, his prose itself had a lucid inimitable poetic style (his discourses left the audience spellbound). Presented below is the English rendering of a Hindi verse, underscoring the importance & the method of meditation, composed by Maharshi Santsewiji Paramhans, the charismatic exponent of Santmat, excerpted from the book titled "Satsang Bhajanawali" compiled by Swami Ashutosh, Editor, Hindi monthly "Shanti Sandesh" (Message of Peace) published by Maharshi Mehi Ashram, Kuppaghat, Bhagalpur, Bihar, India

- Translated by Pravesh K. Singh

The Original Verse (Transliterated Hindi Version):

"Karo tum saadhanaa man se, safalataa haath hai tere.

Nishchhal bhakti kar guru kee, sahaayak saath hai tere.

Na chhodo jaap maanas ko, na chhodo dhyaan maanas ko.

Adaa do drishti sukhaman me, to kaalaa vindu hai nere.

Pratham kaalaa darasataa hai, wahee phir shwet hotaa hai.

Jhalakataa jyoti jagamag hai, va mitataa tam kaa gheraa hai.

Drishti jab vindu par jamatee, to anahad naad hai milataa.

Naubat paanch tapane par, nahee maayaa kaa gheraa hai.

Pancham naubat akath dhwani, prabhu se milaatee hai.

Sant tanh bhaav nahi dwaitee, nahee chauraasee feraa hai."




TRANSLATION:

Practice meditation with sincerity; success is ensured.

Worship your Guru selflessly; the saviour is alongside you.

Never ever discontinue or relinquish the 'maanas jap' (mental recitation of the sacred mantra given by the Guru); never ever discontinue or relinquish the 'maanas dhyaan' (trying to visualise the form of Guru or the venerated deity in the inner sky).

Fix your gaze at the Sushumna (the central & the most important one of the three principal or major yogic nerves inside; it plays an important role in the achievement of the Supreme Bliss); a black Point is nearby (comes into sight).

The black Point is seen first; the same turns white subsequently.

Sparkling brilliant Light that is seen within; ends the kingdom of darkness.

While your gaze is fixed at the Point (refulgent Point viewed inside); you also get to listen to a myriad of Sounds.

Transcending the Five Central Sounds; all the trappings of 'maayaa' (illusion) get shattered.

The fifth Central indescribable Sound (springing straight from Him); takes its listener to the Lord.

Gone is all sense of duality; Gone is the fearful trap of the 8.4 million (species).
