Excerpt: There are four pillars that protect our meditative practice. You can think of them as holding up the inner temple. The two outer pillars are gyana and dharma. Gyana is understood as having two levels, the lower gyana and the higher gyana. In this case, the outer pillar is the lower gyana, which is the conceptual understanding of non-duality, of your absolute oneness with God; that yourself is the One Self. That absolute understanding of that and the capacity to affirm that in your mind when maya begins to attack is the first protection.

The second outer pillar, dharma, comprises your yogic vows and your general yogic attitude towards life, that protect you from that karma. The more you understand the logic of the dharma, that follows directly from the gyana, the more you will be clear of the importance of the yamas and the niyamas. To keep the mind in a sattvic state, so that the Supreme Self can be realized. (Event: Divine Love is Real Retreat) Recorded on the morning of Monday, February 20, 2012.
