In this video, Dada explains the meaning of the Sanskrit word, “Parishrama” or well-directed effort. He gives the opinion that this is the primary ingredient for success in meditation just as it is a primary ingredient for success in any physical or mental endeavor. Through this video Dada aims to remove the misconception that meditation is an “effortless technique”. Although not obviously laborious there is effort required in meditation in order for the state of “effortlessness” or spiritual trance to be achieved.
