      We have uploaded an article by Gurudev Sri Swami
      Sivanandaji Maharaj on the various stages of
      superconsciousness in meditation. The article titled
      "Raja Yoga Samadhi" is at:

      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      EXPANDING THE HEART: The Master continued, "By
      repeating the Lord's Name, by doing Kirtan, you gain
      strength, the mind is changed, and Rajas and Tamas
      are destroyed. You gain more purity and
      discrimination. You have to cultivate many virtues
      like humility, tolerance, courage and Ahimsa. You
      have to watch your mind and control your anger.
      Energy is wasted through anger. Why should you get
      angry with others? All are one. One life vibrates in
      all. Through ignorance you think that he is Sri
      Gupta, he is Sri Bannerji. All are one. Love all.

      "Share with others whatever you have. Do not close
      the door and eat alone. By sharing your heart
      expands. People generally keep the best things for
      themselves, those of medium quality for friends and
      relatives, and the worst is reserved for servants.
      Stale fruit is given to servants. You should give the
      best things to your servants. You should speak kindly
      to them. Then your heart will expand. It is not very
      easy to expand the heart. It has become as hard as
      concrete. It must melt like butter whenever you see a
      suffering man at your doorstep. You should hasten to
      give him milk. This is compassion. This is real
      Advaita. Therefore, develop kindness, mercy and love.
      Love unites, love cements."

      Concluding his instructions the Master said, "Next
      time come and stay here. During your holidays come
      here." All the visitors were very happy for having
      received so many valuable instructions, and with
      their hearts filled with joy they bowed to the Master
      and departed.


      "Have a new angle of vision. Behold the entire
      universe as Guru-Svarupa. See the guiding hand, the
      awakening voice, the illumining touch of the Guru in
      every object in this Creation. The whole world will
      now stand transformed before your changed vision. The
      Virat Guru will reveal all the precious secrets of
      life and bestow wisdom. The Supreme Guru, manifest in
      visible Nature, will teach you the most valuable
      lessons of life. Worship daily this Guru of Gurus,
      the Guru who taught even Avadhuta Dattatreya. The
      silent all-enduring earth with its lofty forbearance,
      the shady fruit-bearing tree with its willing self-
      sacrifice, the mighty Banyan tree (Pipal) reposing
      with patience in the tiny seed, the dripping drops
      whose persistence wears away the rocks, the planets
      and the seasons with their orderly punctuality and
      regularity are divine Gurus to him who will look,
      listen and receive." - Swami Sivananda
