~Samadhi~

Samadhi is the eighth and final step on the path of yoga, as defined by Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. The term is derived from several Sanskrit roots; sam meaning “together” or “completely,” a meaning “toward” and dhe, meaning “put.” Direct translations vary, and interpretations range from “bliss” to “liberation” and even “enlightenment.”

In Hinduism and Buddhism, samadhi is regarded as the pinnacle of all spiritual and intellectual activity, in addition to being a precondition for attaining samsara (release from the cycle of death and rebirth).

In yoga, samadhi is considered to be the state in which individual and universal consciousness unite. It is a blissful form of total meditative absorption, reached once the practitioner has moved through the preliminary steps on Patanjal’s eightfold path.

The spiritual significance of Samadhi is profound, since it encompasses self-realization and symbolizes the ultimate connection with the Divine.

Poetry {4} ~ LIFE & DEATH PARADOX

Eternal cosmos dreamt up a dream

Within itself experiencing life dressed in seams

Drawing lines into two

Contorting

Metamorphoring

Fractals refracting light

Experiencing itself through me and you

Dancing between life and death

One and the same

You could see life as the humorous game

Balance of the opposites

Merging into one

Returning home when our mission is lived, said and done

We and naked, nothing hides from the creator

Laying there swimming in our illusions

Lost in a life of confusions

There is no end in this cyclical paradox

Opening the door to pandora’s box

Love is the essence and the truth of my eternal being

For the eyes who are seeing

I am you and you are me

Our true nature is to be free

In a world we are seekers

Weaving lives as tapestrys

Woven through threads

Death is the road

Life is the traveller

My soul is my guide

Love is there to provide

Bypassing the delusion of life and death’s divide

Death is but changing of our robes

Into the cosmic bliss of our abode.
