Method of Contemplation
Various methods of Contemplation are prevalent. Amongst the Hindus, the practice is performed by fixing the eyes on the tip of the nose. Others contemplate on status or pictures of Saints. Still others fix their gaze on letters or even on different colours.
Amongst the Muslims also there are a number of methods for Contemplation, but they are generally related to the physical vision.
All these practices should be performed under the guidance of a Master or an Adept. We have not seen the Lord, and He can be seen only by a highly evolved soul. Therefore, the best course is to dwell upon the form of the Master, who is Himself in communion with the Lord. When we succeed in this method of Contemplation, the Radiant Form of the Master within becomes our guide in the upper regions and constantly remains with us.
