The Sweet Reward Of Focus- DHYANA
Dhyana is meditative absorption, the 7th of Patanjali's eight limbs of yoga. Pratyahara, Dharana, and Dhyana go together with one leading to the other brining you to meditation.
I LOVE to explain it like this- at the very end of class what Dhyana is...
It's when they have practiced the Yamas and the Niymas-
Moved through Asana-
Focused and moved with the breath (Pranayama)-
Withdrew the senses by surrendering to Savasana-
Focused blissfully on that natural flow of their breath-
Sitting up with eyes still closed and hands at heart-
Not wanting to leave-
And that my friends is meditative absorption-
Ahh, the sweet surrender of the present moment-
Feeling one with everything-
There is no me or you-
Just pure consciousness-
Now that, to me, is Dyana.
