Immerse your mind in holy waters of viveka(the right understanding, consciousness ), so that vices like fear, anxiety, aversion, jealousy and hatred could be washed away.
Hello friends, in the current atmosphere of incessant scare posed by the pandemic, the anxiety has become our constant companion. As far as my experience indicates that more I try to get rid of it, more it comes back to torment me in another form and parcel. What’s the way out? The wise saints had always affirmed that the mankind is not born to suffer but to enjoy life. The purpose and intent of life must be to realise self and to expand the horizon of happiness as far around us as we could.
The best way to realise self is meditation, an inner dialog with our own self. Recently I came to know about transcendental meditation(TM) and wished to share it with you. In this kind of meditation requires withdrawal of consciousness and senses from the external objects, unhappiness and stress and concentrate it on the self.
Transcendental meditation is a method of calming the mind and becoming relaxed by thinking deeply in silence, repeating a special word or a syllable or series of words(mantra) many times in a row. The art of meditation is universal in itself as it is based on religiously neutral foundation. It’s a credible means of communication with our own soul and possibly with the Almighty God, the one and only supreme power.
In ancient time the holy sages(rishis) used to follow the path of meditation so determined and singel mindedly that they succeeded in establishing a communion with God. We are only common mortals, incapable of facing such hardships, sticking to a grueling and disciplined regimen.
Friends we can at least afford 15-20 minutes of our time to practice meditation. The regular practise has the potential of eliminating negative feelings of stress and fatigue and replaces them with positive feeling of well-being. The meditation can also enhance our creativity, productivity as well as flexibility to adapt to any situation. The calmer mind can smooth the creases in our relationship too and help us to bond more with our near and dear ones.
Let’s us all incorporate meditation in our daily lives. We can begin with a shorter version of five minutes then expand it gradually. I shall tell you about my follow up and love to know your response too!
I wish you all health happiness and prosperity.
Adieu for now.
