What is the ultimate purpose of meditation?
Asked By: BluOmni 3 hours ago
In the Vedas, it is written that whatever state the relinguisher of his body remembers at death is the state he attains. If he remembers the Source, he attains the Source’s nature at death. And becomes at One with the Omniverse, “God”, Cosmic Consciousness, etc.
Practicing meditation brings awareness from your Ego to your true state. A source tells me: at the moment of death, complete separation of Ego which is left in the body at death and one’s true nature takes place.
If one is aware, at that moment of death they are able to recognize and remember that meditative state practiced during their incarnation. One remembers the Source at death and attains its Nature. If one was too attached to the Ego during his incarnation, at the moment of death he will be unable to “remember” anything but the Ego… so that separation at that very moment of death will bring nothing but confusion to him. He will remember Egocentric aspects of the life relinguished. That state he will attain.

Meditation is turning one’s mind heavenwards
to reflect the light of the Ancient Beauty.
What is Mind, how to turn heavenwards,
how to attain reflection, what is Light of
the Ancient Beauty? And lots of other questions
are answered in the sacred verses (especially in
the Prayers and Meditations of Baha’u’llah, for
mankind in this Cycle of five thousand centuries).
Meditation has been practiced by human beings
throughout history that led us to the present civilization,
and it will lead us to a much higher level in the future.
Today, many children have learned and known how
to meditate, and the results are tremendously beyond

“You cannot apply the name ‘man’ to any being void of this faculty of meditation; without it he would be a mere animal, lower than the beasts.
Through the faculty of meditation man attains to eternal life; through it he receives the breath of the Holy Spirit — the bestowal of the Spirit is given in reflection and meditation.
The spirit of man is itself informed and strengthened during meditation; through it affairs of which man knew nothing are unfolded before his view. Through it he receives Divine inspiration, through it he receives heavenly food….”

Of man is meditation
