Paras on sahaja: It is wrong to use the illustration of a camera shutter--the image getting larger or vaguer or smaller and sharper as it opens or closes--for attention focused on nirvikalpa in meditation or spread out in sahaja in the wakeful state. The correct illustration is this: the stillness is being experienced at the centre of a circle, the thoughts revolve around it at the circumference. But the degree of Stillness remains just as much in outer activity as in meditation.
