In the Himalayan Yoga Tradition, meditation is seen as a systematic method which leads one from the lower, material levels of awareness to the highest and most subtle state of consciousness. (“Yoga is samadhi.” – Vyasa’s commentary on YS I.1). The methods of applying meditative states of consciousness and meditative insights are studied so as to purify one’s thoughts and emotions and to refine one’s activities in everyday life. In actual practice, systematic “Steps of Meditation” are learned, including basic relaxations and breath awareness at the physical level. When these are established, sushumna application and subtle-body awareness is introduced along with mantra.
