Yogic thought for the day

On samadhi, by a master: Harish Johari

" Samadhi is the pure bliss of total inactivity. Up to the sixth chakra, the yogi may enter a trance in which activity or form still remains within the consciousness. In sahasrara chakra, the prana moves upward and reaches the highest point. The mind establishes itself in the pure void of shunya mandala, the space between the two hemispheres. At this time all feelings, emotions, and desires, whihc are the activities of the mind, are dissolved in their primary cause. The union is achieved. The yogi is sat-chid-ananda, truth-being-bliss. He is his own real self. And as long as he stays in his physical body he retains nondual consciousness, enjoying the play of lila (maya or the illusion of living or life) without becoming troubled by pleasure and pain, honors and humiliations."
