Day By Day with Bhagavan:
« on: December 03, 2012, 04:56:43 PM »

In the afternoon, G.V. Subbaramiah asked: What is the difference between manas japa and dhyana?

Bhagavan: They are the same. In both, the mind is concentrated on one thing, the mantra or the Self. Manrtra,
Japa, Dhyana -- are only different names. So long as they require effort we call them by these names. But when
the 'Self is realized, this goes on without any effort and what was the means becomes the goal.

Arunachala Siva.
