Meditation is the 7th Stage of Yoga

Kriya Yoga Dhyana


Dhyana or Meditation is a series of breathing techniques and exercises experienced from a different level of consciousness a different degree of awareness. It is the connection to the Life Force (Prana) that makes this experience possible. This is stage 7 of an 8 stage process. There is a lot of preparatory work that must be in place before you actually meditate.

Purpose: Dhyana marks the shift from the effortful work of concentration to the effortless flow state of meditation. Meditation is a state of being where the mind has transcended the limits of instinct and rational thinking. The practitioner has accessed a part of the mind that can do many things at once. The success of this practice is reliant on the initial union with the Divine. Like attracts like and to draw from particles or waves (matter or mind) is duality or fear and limitation; becomes fear and limitation. However, to draw from Spirit (Truth and Wholeness) one becomes Truth and Whole.
