Death Meditation :
Meeting death before it comes
fact of Life
Death meditation technique is one of my favorites meditation
technique. This meditation is not only very easy but also a great rejuvenating yogic exercise for our body. It is a very simple yet very powerful technique which introduce you to your death before you die actually.
There is one fact of life which is universally applicable to all of us :
All of us will die one day.
Death is an absolute realty of life. Everybody who has come, will have to go one day. However one part of our existence will never die.
Your physical body will merge into the chemistry of our planet. .
Your mind will cease to exist.
..and each and everything that constitute your personality in this world - your success, your failure, your friends, your enemies, your joy, your sorrows, your ambitions, plans and just about everything which you now consider as your own will lost its relevance.
However… One thing will remain intact. One thing will be there untouched,
'as it is' even in death, even after death….. that thing is your real identity, the true foundation of your existence - Self.
In this meditation, you will realized this eternal aspect of your existence - self in you.
For this meditation we'll use a very important & powerful tool available to mankind. This tool is 'Imagination' .
"Imagination is more powerful than knowledge."
Do you know what is imagination ? It is nothing but going into a belief so deeply that the belief itself becomes a reality. Many meditation techniques ( particularly those developed in Tibet ) are based on imagination. In the spiritual world the concept of higher reality prevails over the perceivable reality. The boundary between what is real and what is illusion gets so blurred in higher spiritual plane that one has to take the shelter of imagination to understand it .Before telling you about meditation, I want to tell you some more about the power of imagination .
