A CAT SITS ON MY LAP WHILE MEDITATING

Postby pskchoudary » Wed May 15, 2013 1:52 pm

Hi!

I am KRISHNA, a few days back as i was meditating inside the premises of a Temple near my house, and as i was in a deep spiritual trance like state i could sense something heavy on my lap and it was moving.though i was aware that it was a CAT. as i had seen it wandering inside the temple many a time. after i completed my spiritual routine. i opened my eyes and i was surprised rather than shocked to see that the cat was in a deep sleep, and it really put me in a deep thought process as to what might be the underlying meaning for this unique incident.


GOD BLESS!!!…..

The underlying meaning is that cat was tired and your lap was soft and warm. My cats do it quite often.

The cat was clearly your tantric consort in a past life, and inspired by the depth of your samadhi she fell into a profound state of yoga nidra in your lap.

Well I must have had a whole host of tantric consorts in my past life then. Sometimes two cats sit on my lap at the same time! :thinking:

I normally have two parrots standing on me while sitting for 30 minutes in the morning. Sometimes I hold them up in each hand for the whole period. What does that mean?

Remind me not to shake hands with you if we ever meet early in the morning! :lol:

Only in the past life? You disappoint me, Greg. I figured there would be a line around the block.

Why do you feel it was unique?
Are cats unfriendly around you?

I wish I have such cats as I like cats very much and want to make them sleep in my lap too.
You are lucky to have such special friends.

The underlying meaning of your incident is exactly the same as in the picture below. :D

My dog meditates with me. When my bell sounds, he settles down right next to me (I'm lying down). He is perfectly still till the bell sounds again.

Peace
