Speaking in the terms that Jesus Christ used when teaching His disciples — apostles, — the baptism of the Holy Spirit is the
"Latihan" meditation that we described above.
But the next, deeper, stage of cognizing Him — "birth" and "maturing" in Him
— should be performed in another meditation that is called "Pranava". This was exactly what Jesus tried to talk about with Nicodemus (John 3:1-21). Apostle Philip spoke in detail about the same in parable manner [6,14].
To perform this meditation we need to find a place, favorable from the energetic standpoint, which would be open, without houses and trees (mountains, beaches or sandbanks, steppe etc.). At this place we should going out from anahata through chitrini as far back as possible, to expand as consciousness there, to feel the Living Light Love of the Holy Spirit — and, having infused ourselves into Him, to start moving forward together with Him as one Flow passing by and through the body. The body is like in a huge river. Let it get washed through and become absolutely transparent.
This meditation can be repeated many times: the Holy Spirit is always happy to help the worthy ones. Performing the meditation will be easier if it is accompanied by wonderful Orthodox prayer
"Heavenly Tsar" or mantra "AUM".
This prayer can be translated from the Church Slavonic language like this:
"Heavenly Tsar, the Consoler, the Spirit of Truth!
Omnipresent and All-pervading!
Treasury of all good and Source of all life!
Come and abide in us!
And cleanse us of all impurity!
And save, oh the Blessed One, our souls!
We should be singing this prayer while moving in "Pranava".
The mantra "AUM" (or "OM") in reality sounds like AOUM. One should sing it delicately, in a prolonged manner and in a high-pitched voice (just like the mantra for anahata), also while moving in
"Pranava". (Growling of the "OM" sound in coarse voices, which is practiced in some ignorant pseudo-religious companies — is a
"singing for the devil", but not for the Holy Spirit).
In the future we should learn to stop in the "Pranava" meditation being merged with the Holy Spirit and being aware of ourselves as a part of Him.
The Holy Spirit can be cognized in His more subtle manifestation also in the
"Pranava" meditation, but performed in a slightly different way.
This time we should get back from anahata not horizontally, but down at an angle of approximately forty degrees. In other words we find ourselves below the Earth surface — and find a layer of still more subtle Living Light. And then, just as we did while performing the first variant of the
"Pranava" meditation, we start moving inside Him as a Flow in the forward-up direction about and through the body.
As we further master the Mergence with this Light we may discover that He prevails inside our planet except its core.
He should be explored through filling Him with oneself as anahata — both in front and behind the vertical plane which coincides with the back of one's standing body.
The next levels of "birth" and "maturing" are to be performed in the Divine Fire, which we will talk about a little later.
