“After six days Jesus took Peter, James and John with him and led them up a light mountain, when they were all alone. There he was transfigured before them. His clothes became dazzling white, whiter than anyone in the world could bleach them. And there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus. Peter said to Jesus, ‘Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us put up three shelters one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” (He did not know what to say, they were frightened). Then a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and a voice came from the cloud: ‘This is my Son, whom I love, Listen to him.’” Mark 9/2-7; Mathew 17/1-8; Luke 9/28-36

Meditation not only brings transformation of the inner being, rather transfiguration. Transfiguration is the change in appearance and personality of a person in a spiritual way. Through regular, sincere and deep meditation, the body, cells, atoms, tissues, skin, flesh, marrow, everything gets changed. The face of Jesus was shining like the sun and his clothes was the whitest of everything.
The Experience has metaphysical implication:
The mountain represents the head in the body. They went to the top of the high mountain means concentrating in the fontanelle.

Three persons accompanied Jesus and witnessed the transfiguration. Those were Peter, James and John symbolizing three Divine qualities for meditation and realization.

Peter is the faith, James is the belief and John is the love.

One is to go to the mountain top, i.e. fontanelle, with faith, belief and love, to the presence of Christ, where one will perceive the formless sunshine, Divine illumination and the Divine voice of the prophets.

Meditation transforms life and transfigures the body. Meditation brings change in inner and outer life of the person. Meditation is not a mechanical process, rather practiced with love, faith, belief and devotion, brings quick spiritual evolution.

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary and what is unseen is eternal.” 2 Corinthians 4/18
