Meditation from a Real Master

"You only know real meditation after you are awakened by transmission from a real master." I just read this from an article and it's not the first time I've read it. Is this true? If so I feel like my own efforts at home are being wasted. This would answer a big question for me and many others if you would kindly respond. Thank you Deepak, P.S your book "Super Brain" was brilliant and is a true transformational tool for anyone


Getting meditation instruction from a realized teacher is the ideal, but if that was the absolute requirement to get real benefits from meditation, then we wouldn’t have the mountain of scientific research or all the self- reported benefits of meditation that do have. Also, there are many references in the wisdom traditions of the world where individuals have meditated their way to enlightenment without a formal teacher. Some would say that in those cases the teacher eventually came to them in the form of observing Nature, or inspiration, but either way, it is sincerity and dedication to practice that ultimately leads to spiritual illumination.

Dear Deepak, \nyou know the saying that when Disciple is ready the master appears. \n\nTrue master gives true Meditation which is samadhi. \n\nBut then how can one know what is true meditation if one doesn`t know it through experience...?\n\nI will make 2 points to support the claim that only after being awakened by real master one can really get in meditation or samadhi. \n\n1) When true meditation happens, either one has a master in physical form or Shiv the infinite consciousness or call whatever you may want, is the guru or master. \n\n2) Sometimes, the past life masters have already awakened the soul and the soul only needs to work out certain karma to be re-aligned back to the state achieved in previous birth by the grace of Master awakening the soul.\n\nThank you for reading my comments. I found the topic close to my heart so felt obliged to reply.\n\

@Dr Ratan Saini.... Yeah in that way you can fool anyone: the method of meditation determines to which level reach. Lol there is only one level of enlightenment and that is freedom!! The freedom to be can only be found inside oneself and every ONE experiences it differently....

True Meditation will always lead to supreme source of energy. The method of meditation determines to which level we reach. To know the best method one must have true teacher !!!

Wanting to meditate has to come from within you......even if you get the best guru in the world and skeptical about it....def. not going to work.....Guru or no Guru......peace /God lies within you and you HAVE to close to eyes and find the peace which leads to everything else........
