Two-day yoga conference concludes
Ludhiana, October 3
“With spiritual progress, the mind grows in magnitude. The mind increases its periphery until it finally merges in the Supreme Entity.” This was stated by the spiritual head of Ananda Marga Pracharaka Samgha (AMPS) Vishwadevananda Avadhuta during a two days meditation conference which concluded here today.
He said during the course of spiritual progress, a spiritual aspirant would develop many faculties or attributes, but one must always be vigilant that these faculties do not divert one from the chosen path, from the cherished goal.
Large number of people from all over India attended the conference. After the afternoon meditation, followers took out a procession in the city with banner and placards.
In the evening, the Renaissance Artists and Writers Association (RAWA) presented a colourful cultural programme based on “prabhata samgita” composed by Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar.

Dharana is the sixth limb of ashtanga yoga. It involves deep meditation where the object being focused on is held in the mind without consciousness wavering from it. Dharana means “holding steady”, “collection” or “concentration” of the mind
The basic idea is to hold the concentration or focus of attention in one direction. When the body has been prepared by asanas, the mind has been calmed by pranayama and the senses have been brought under control by pratyahara, the “seeker” reaches the sixth stage. dharana. Here, the mind has to be stilled in order to achieve this state of complete absorption.
The objective in dharana is to steady the mind by intently focusing on one particular activity of the mind. The more deep the focus, the easier other activities of the mind fall away. Now we can reach our greater potential for inner healing.
As the practitioner becomes more advanced, consciousness of the act of meditation disappears, and only the consciousness of being exists.
