“The highest joy is given by meditation”

—Swami Rama

How can we experience the full benefits of meditation? The time-tested methods of the Himalayan sages provide a complete system for us to follow. In this newly restored video lecture from 1991, Swami Rama maps out a plan for how to deepen our meditation, including: developing a quiet, steady body and breath; cultivating sankalpa shakti (willpower and determination); letting go of anything that makes us brood; and leading our mind to a state of sukha mana (happiness) before we begin our meditation. When we learn to expand the whole field of our mind—conscious and unconscious—then we can experience the unparalleled joy that comes from knowing ourselves on every level.
