The Method - The Meditation Script

1. To start the beginner meditation close your eyes and visualize the letter A. See the letter in your mind’s eye. Try to picture it as clearly as possible, right in front of your field of vision. Keep it in your vision for a moment.

2. Now, visualize just to the right of the letter A, to the next letter, B. See it as clearly as possible, just like the previous letter. See it as solidly as possible in your mind’s eye. Keep it in your field of view for a moment.

3. Shift back into the space between the two letters, A and B, and do Japa. To do Japa, say the sound of “Ahh”. The sound should go for as long as your can. Try to continue this sound for at least 10 seconds. Focus on the sound. Feel the sound leaving your throat. Feel it entering the room. If your thoughts move somewhere else, gently but firmly, bring your focus back to the sound you are making. The sound of Japa, the sound of God, the sound of “Ahh”. Keep your focus on the sound of “Ahh”.

4. Make the sound two times, while you’re in the space between the two letters, A and B. Focus only on the sound of “Ahh”.

5. Now put your focus back on the letter B. See the letter in your mind’s eye. Try to picture it as clearly as possible, right in front of your field of vision. Keep it in your vision for a moment.

6. Now, visualize the next letter, C, just to the right of the letter B. See it as clearly as possible, just like the previous letter. See it as solidly as possible in your mind’s eye. Keep it in your field of view for a moment.

7. Shift back into the space between the two letters, B and C, and do Japa. Focus on the sound. Feel the sound leaving your throat. Feel it entering the room your in. The sound of Japa, the sound of God, the sound of “Ahh”. Keep your focus on the sound of “Ahh”.

8. Make the sound twice while you’re in the space between the two letters, B and C. Focusing entirely on the sound you are making.

9. Continue by visualizing the letter C again. Go through the rest of the letters A – G using the same process.
