Dharana - focused concentration on the breath, on a mental image, on a mantram, on the third-eye.
Dhyana - losing the association between the focus and the object focused on. Dropping identification with the mind and thought process.
Samadhi - the resulting enlightenment/bliss that occurs from raising kundalini and entering the state of Moksha.
This is all according to Patanjali and Raja Yoga, I forgot to add.
It's also apparent to see who meditates and who does not.
Just by the way anyway, awareness:
1. It was up to David to respond, not you! It wasn't your call to make.
2. You could have just reported it, but no
had to go and make yourself all 'holier than thou' over it.
3. You waited for 6 pages, until you decided that you hated me enough before raising the issue, when as soon as I posted it, this was the exact
PM you sent me:

There is a lot of pain in our friend, as I understand it. A trying too hard to "correct" and show people "the Light."
I am choosing not to respond to him at this time, during this period. Quite a few members already have, as I understand it. I admit, his presence in our thread is actually quite entertaining to me, and can ultimately only help further what awareness
wishes to share.
If you are now choosing to ignore our brother, DavidSun, or at least not respond to his posts, this would be a great idea.
I am happy that you spoke up and addressed those observations of yours. It's one of the reasons why I love conversing with you, your genuine openness.
Two-faced hypocrisy much?
I wasn't going to continue with this, but the more you poke the bear, the more it's gonna bite you.
At least people can see your 'true colours' now and I'm glad! Goodbye.
