Gaining transcendent awareness

The first step is to bring the mind to the Transcendent. Through transcendent meditation, the attention is brought from gross experience to subtler fields of experience until the subtlest experience is transcended and the state of transcendental consciousness is gained. The march of the mind in this direction is so simple as to be automatic; as it enters into experience of a subtler nature, the mind feels increased charm because it is proceeding towards absolute bliss. Once the mind reaches transcendent consciousness, it no longer remains a conscious mind; it gains the status of absolute Being.

— Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, On The Bhagavad Gita
