Sitting in Siddhasan or Padmasan the aspirant should first close his or her eyes to overcome all visual distractions. Then he should contemplate that his true form is Atma (soul) and not the body. He should also ponder upon the attributes of Atam (soul); that it is eternal, pure, blissful, and free from all worldly bondages. As one advances in Dhyan, by profoundly focusing either on the guru or murit of God, one sees God within one's Atma.
