Attain cosmic consciousness

Sometimes, this peace is so deep that it takes us into total inner absorption where we become oblivious to our external surroundings and remain there for several hours. However, we retain our individual identity and still see the form of the soul. This state of equipoise is called Savikalpa Samadhi.
In the state of Nirvikalpa Samadhi, we attain a state of deep meditation and remain that way for several days without getting up or being aware of our external surroundings. In this state of all encompassing peace, the river of our consciousness, which has been flowing for innumerable lifetimes, finally attains fulfilment by merging with the ocean of infinite cosmic energy.
We experience a complete dissolution of our identity as we merge with the soul forever. We are liberated from the shackles of karma, the tyranny of the ego and the vicious loop of rebirth. We achieve the supreme goal of human life. We attain the state of self-realisation as we become one with the one. We attain union with our soul and the pure infinite cosmic consciousness. We have fulfilled our journey; our inner pilgrimage has ended and reached the point of no return.
We, who were ordinary human beings caught in the trap of delusion, are transformed into divine beings overflowing with wisdom. The miraculous metamorphosis is complete.
When we emerge from this state of deep inner absorption, we are transformed forever. Just like a colourful butterfly that emerges from its cocoon, we return as enlightened beings and become a fount of perennial power, peace, love and bliss to take others to enlightenment and bliss.
Then every moment is a joyful union, a blissful communion, a permanent reunion with our soul. We flow with meditation, we glow with meditation and we live in meditation forever and ever.
