Samadhi is a spiritual experience that opens us to the highest state of consciousness and inner bliss. It is stepping into your enlightened nature that is free from all suffering. Samadhi is found through diving into a consistent state of pure consciousness, that is void of attachment to any thought. Samadhi is a deep personal, intimate merging with the divine inside you and all around you. It is being unified with the Universe through your consciousness.
The final step in the eight-fold path of Yoga is the attainment of Samadhi. Samadhi means “to bring together, to merge.” In the state of samadhi the body and senses are at rest, as if asleep, yet the faculty of mind and reason are alert, as if awake; one goes beyond consciousness. During samadhi, we realise what it is to be an identity without differences, and how a liberated soul can enjoy pure awareness of this pure identity. The conscious mind drops back into that unconscious oblivion from which it first emerged.
Thus, samadhi refers to union or true Yoga. There is an ending to the separation that is created by the “I” and “mine” of our illusory perceptions of reality. The mind does not distinguish between self and non-self, or between the object contemplated and the process of contemplation. The mind and the intellect have stopped and there is only the experience of consciousness, truth and unutterable joy.
The achievement of samadhi is a difficult task. For this reason the Yoga Sutra suggests the practice of asanas and pranayama as preparation for dharana, because these influence mental activities and create space in the crowded schedule of the mind. Once dharana has occurred, dhyana and samadhi can follow.
These eight steps of yoga indicate a pathway that leads to the attainment of physical, ethical, emotional, and psycho-spiritual health. Yoga does not seek to change the individual; rather, it allows the natural state of total health and integration in each of us to become a reality.

I am Anirban Chatterjee, a resident of West Bengal, India. And as a Hindu (in fact, a Brahmin, i.e descendant of the priestly class credited to have founded the roots of Hinduism itself, but I guess you know that already), I am very surprised to see in fact how much you know about our religion. I am not a very religious person myself, but once I certainly was. And I can honestly say, that your interpretation of Hinduism is truly based on far more understanding about its roots than most Indian Hindus, and even the Brahmins and scholars.
And that too, from someone apparently from the west (if I get it correctly, you’re either American or European, guessing from your name). A great pleasure, and my earnest respect to you and your understanding alike.
Dear Anirban Chatterjee,

Dear Gabriela, I have had active kundalini for several years which has reached my head but not yet broken through the crown. I have had a gentle experience with no fireworks, just an ebb and flow of whirling, twitching, vibration and buzzing that occurs mostly when I am meditating or just about to fall asleep. I’ve also had a lot of growth and challenges but trust the process of unfolding. I feel a longing to leave behind my mental obscurations and old patterns and experience life more openly. I want to experience Truth and serve. I was wondering if you would be available for a consultation. Please let me know if this is a possibility. In the meantime, thank you so much for the depth of your articles and for your generosity in sharing them.
Thank you for your nice message… Keep going and trust your heart ❤
