Master the Mind - Episode 21

sthitaprajña (The Equanimous One)

In the twenty-first discourse of the Master the Mind series, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai elaborates on the personality of the sthitaprajña. Sadguru explains that when the time is right, a spiritual aspirant moves from the state of dhāraṇā to dhyāna, after which he begins to experience samādhi, even if only fleetingly. However, even a cursory experience of samādhi is bound to kindle an overpowering urge in the aspirant to constantly experience this state. Sadguru teaches us in simple terms how one should undertake the practice of meditation on one thought like ‘ahaṁ brahma, sarvaṁ brahma’ and permanently become one with that thought in due course of time. When that happens, one becomes a sthitaprajña or a jīvanmukta. Sadguru inspires us with examples from the life of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba (Swami) to illustrate how He was always in the state of Supreme Consciousness state and did everything from that state alone. That indeed is the pathway for everyone to tread, so that we can eventually get to experience the state that Swami always lived in.
