Once there was a talk between Shiva and Parvati. Shiva is one of the Hindu Trinity, who is always in a state of Samadhi. His place is often in the cremation ground. He used to freely roam about, never feeling separate from the universe. He would leave Parvati in Kailas, while on his itinerary. Parvati asked Shiva to teach her to meditate and enter samadhi so that she could always remain in that state without at any time feeling the separation. Shiva asked her to sit down in Asana, close her eyes and turn her gaze within and meditate. Then the following dialogue took place

Shiva :– What do you see now?

Parvati :–I see your form before my mental vision.

Shiva :– Go beyond that form. What do you see now?

Parvati :–I see a brilliant light

Shiva :– Still go beyond that light. What next?

Parvati :–I hear the sound Om

Shiva :– Transcend the sound. What is your experience now?

To this last question, there was no answer. Parvati had become one with the Cosmic Self. There was now no subject and object, no seer and seen, no hearer or heard, for her. All had dissolved into one really, one Existence. There was only one Changeless, nameless, formless, non-dual Brahman. Sometime later, when Parvati was gradually coming back to body consciousness, she was heard uttering softly

I am Brahman

This story of Shiva and Parvati may or may not be true but its value consists in teaching, by way of illustration, the process of meditation and ultimate realisation.
