My father used to sit for meditation every day and I also used to sit on his side. I used to close my eyes when my father was closing his eyes for his meditation. But as I was not aware what the meditation is, I used to open my eyes within few minutes. My father used to sit for meditation for very long hours. One day when he finished his meditation, I asked him to teach me meditation. He said that I am still young to learn meditation. I said Dhruva and Pralhad were also young when they were meditating. He said Dhruva and Pralhad had surrendered to the spiritual master. If you want to learn meditation you will also have to surrender to the spiritual master because only spiritual master’s grace can awaken our internal energy. I answered him that I have already accepted you as my spiritual master. My father told me that when the time is ripe only then I will be initiated. But to be able to do it, try to practice it with me every day. I used to sit by my father every day without fail. Several days passed like that.
