Simple Steps: #31 The Meaning of Dhyana

Dhyana is the seventh limb of yoga and it means "to worship."

It is perfect contemplation and involves concentration upon a point of focus with the intention of knowing the truth about it.

The concept holds that when one focuses their mind on concentration of an object, the mind is transformed into the shape of the object.

For the practitioner of dhyana, when one focuses on the divine, they become more reflective of the divine, and as a result they know their own true nature.

Todays Simple Step

Imagine today that you are the Budda - the sage - the wise one.

How do you express the divine within yourself?

How do you keep yourself worthy of delivering the message you carry?

Practice being true to your message today.

This is your simple step.

Till next time...
