Samadhi in Heartfulness is very #different, because at times we are so absorbed while also remaining aware of everything around.
That’s the #beauty of it. It is what is traditionally called the #Turiya state. Let me explain it to you scientifically.
When they measure #brain activities using #EEG, there are changes in the brain according to #fast thinking, slow #thinking, or no thinking while #sleeping.
The #synaptic firing creates the #electromagnetic field, which can be measured by an EEG #machine.
Children think very fast, producing fast #brainwave frequencies, 30-40 Hz. During sleep it is 3 to 4 Hz, #Delta wave #frequency.
If you experience Delta wave #frequencies while you are #awake, it means you are as relaxed as during sleep, but you are fully #aware.
This #mental relaxation akin to sleep, while aware, is the Turiya state. This easily happens in Heartfulness #Meditation. Even the first time you #meditate, you can achieve this Delta state.
But the idea is not only to have this Delta state during meditation. Such a #relaxed state should also be there during our day-to-day #activities.
We may be making #coffee, doing the dishes, or ironing clothes; involved in a #business deal; having an argument with someone; yet we are so #calm and #peaceful inside. In the Shastras this is called the Turiyatit state.
How is it that most of us are not able to feel that in day-to-day #life? There are many reasons behind it.
We need to remove the impact of our conditioning. This happens through the Heartfulness practice of Cleaning. -- #Daaji (31.7.2019, #Bengaluru)
