Meditation technique for Global Peace

The way to achieve global peace is to create individual peace. The meditation for global peace is a collective meditation. This is a very simple but very powerful meditation. Sit in one circle or concentric circles, holding hands so that you hold the hand of the person on your right with your right hand palm facing down, signifying ‘giving’ peace and bliss, while you offer your left hand palm facing up to ‘receive’ peace and bliss from the person on your left. This connected circle of people generates a powerful energy cycle. The meditative energy of one person is shared by all others. This meditation can be done for at least 21 minutes.

When you regain your innocence, you are called dwija, reborn, mature!

Innocence is the way to approach life! The moment you realize that you need to regain your innocence, you are ready for the transformation. The scale of measure of regaining innocence is to watch your reaction to the little things in life. Innocence sees all little things with awe and wonder. That is why children are so wonder filled all the time. You can see it in their wide eyes. If you are able to see things in wonder, then innocence has started happening in you. It is possible that with all the knowledge of the world you can still have clear and innocent eyes. Those are the eyes of the sage.

Childlike innocence is beautiful but not enough. It has to be lost to life and regained with complete awareness and maturity

Childlike innocence discovers many things but cannot understand most of it. It enjoys it at the level of its innocence, that’s all. Whereas innocence regained not only discovers these new things, but also understands all of them. That is the difference. Childlike innocence is beautiful but not enough. It has to be lost to life and regained with complete awareness and maturity. It is said that a mad man and a mystic look alike. Both of them will be eccentric in their ways, laughing abruptly and doing things incomprehensible. But they are actually at the extreme two ends of the same spectrum!

Any problem can be solved with this one technique

Try this technique from His Divine Holiness Bhagawan Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji:

Anything comes in your mind, ask ‘How will master behave?’ Do the same.

One more thing, be very clear, when you behave as I am behaving, you will have what I am having. That is a promise from Existence. I don’t have anything with me for which I am not qualified. That is why I don’t have fear that something will be taken away from me.

In the same way, when you just carry this one message, live like a master. Whatever you are qualified for will always gather around you and it will always stay with you. It will always be with you. The person who is courageous enough will say, ‘How will master live? Let me live that way. Continue reading “Any problem can be solved with this one technique”

Meditation technique to establish you in the awareness of the present moment

Mahamantra meditation

The Mahamantra meditation is an ancient Tibetan Buddhist technique to awaken the anahata chakra, located at the heart center. This meditation makes your mind firm and stable. Your mind is all the time oscillating with thoughts. This meditation makes your mind still by making it enter into the zone of no-mind. It is like a jumping board into infinity. It should be done on an empty stomach, preferably early in the morning, or two hours after any meal. It can be done either alone or with a group. When done with a group, it effectively energizes the place where it is done.

The more the number of engrams, the more clouded is our thought process, and the lower is the productivity!

So much has been written and said about productivity in organizations. Productivity has become the mantra in organizations for the last two or three decades. As a result of invention of computers and new communications technologies such as the internet and cell phone, the world has become a much smaller place. While there has been an increase in productivity in companies, it has often come at a huge price on the health (physical and mental) and well being of the employees.

Let us now start to understand what is productivity and how productivity can be enhanced without the side effects of stress.

In simple terms, productivity can be measured as:

Productivity = Output / Input

The measure of output may be certain number of tasks completed by a particular individual or team or revenue in the case of a manufacturing company. The measure of input may include the number of hours worked on a particular project, manufacturing costs etc. Billions of dollars are spent by companies globally to enhance human productivity. Most of these efforts are centered on providing new skills specific to training in a particular area of the organization’s focus or improving technology such as use of computers, internet or other forms of media and communications. Some companies also invest in developing ‘softer skills’ such as interpersonal skills, team building skills, etc. But most of these trainings tend to address the conscious mind, actions, behaviors and perceptions that are just on the surface. But over 90% of our emotions and behaviors reside deep under the surface of our mind. This is what the psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud, calls the unconscious mind.

There is a whole range of emotions and experiences that are embedded in the unconscious level. This is where the samskaras or engraved memories reside.

Meditation technique to allow the play of spontaneous intelligence in your life

  • Just try this for the next 48 hours.
  • Consciously decide you are not going to think about your problems.
  • Drop your intellect which continuously tells you that you do not have enough intelligence to solve your problems spontaneously, that you do not have the capacity to produce that much spontaneity.
  • Work on solving your problems boldly and with simple awareness and you will see that a higher intelligence comes into play.

One lesson you will learn is without your knowledge, the higher intelligence comes in to do things for you. When you become sensitive to this happening, your awareness will take a quantum jump. Then you no longer need to work to dissolve your problems. Problems will simply dissolve with the play of spontaneous intelligence in your life.

Intelligence is the quality that witnesses the mind because of which thoughts are simply dissolved

Thinking arises from the mind, which is actually one of the most marvelous mechanisms. But the problem arises when the mind becomes your master instead of a tool in your hands.

A small story:

There lived a king who had a very faithful servant. He was so loyal he had even risked his own life to save the life of the king on a couple occasions. On one such occasion, the king highly pleased with the servant asked him for anything he wanted.

The servant humbly replied, ‘I don’t need anything, O King. You have given me everything I need.’ But the king insisted. Finally, the servant said, ‘Ok. If you really want to give me something, please make me the king for one day.’

The king was a bit uncomfortable but he had already promised and had to keep it up. The morning of the day the servant became the king.

He simply pointed to the king and ordered the royal guards, ‘Kill him!’

The king was shocked and asked the servant, ‘Do you know what you are saying?’ The servant calmly replied, ‘I am the king today. I can do what I wish to.’ The king was killed and the servant remained king forever.

Technique to handle one’s dreams and incidents of life

This technique has two parts: one that you do when you fall asleep, when you are lying in the bed and the second one that you do whenever you can remember during the whole day.

The first one will create more energy to do the second part and vice versa. They are complementary to each other.

First part:

When you lie down, before falling asleep, just remember the area near the ajna chakra or the third eye, the center of the forehead. Do not concentrate. If you force yourself, if you start concentrating, your sleep will be disturbed and you will have a headache. Just remember that area in a relaxed way, the way you look at a flower, just casually. Slowly, you will see that you are relaxing, you are slowly dropping into the deep sleep state.

Just be aware of this movement into deep sleep, that is enough. First day, you may feel that you are not falling asleep at all and that your sleep is getting delayed by ten or fifteen minutes. Don’t bother about it. Just be aware of the prana movement in the ajna chakra. Continue reading “Technique to handle one’s dreams and incidents of life”

When you remember this whole life is maya and fall asleep being aware of the third eye, you will naturally be able to heal yourself!

Be very clear, these are not theories. These are all the truths of thousands of years of research and development by our rishis on the human consciousness.

Let you be very clear, this technology, these techniques can directly develop the quality of your life from today. You don’t have to think, ‘Oh! If I practice this technique for ten years, maybe in the eleventh year, it will give results.’ No!
Let you be very clear, because we do not know this technology, we started suspecting the science itself. For example, in some way if the theory of gravity is useful, applicable in your life, you will not suspect the science of the theory of gravity. But if it doesn’t have any direct application in your life, if you don’t have any direct benefit in your life from the theory, naturally, you tend to forget, you tend to question, and you tend to suspect it. Finally, you tend to completely throw out the whole science itself.

Just because we have not practiced this technology, this kind of truths and techniques in our life, we started suspecting the whole spirituality itself, ‘Is it going to really work for me? Is it going to really help me?’ Continue reading “When you remember this whole life is maya and fall asleep being aware of the third eye, you will naturally be able to heal yourself!”

We are not able to face death because we are not able to face the ever-changing nature of life!

             Once, in USA, a young lady asked the great Indian monk Swami Vivekananda, ‘What is life?’ Swami Vivekananda said, ‘Come with me to India. I will teach you.’ She asked, ‘What will you teach me?’   He said, ‘I will teach you how to die.’

The question is about life but the answer is about death! It seems strange! What Swami Vivekananda is saying is that if you know the secret of death, the quality of your life will be different. Your very understanding and attitude towards everything will change.

We can actually use our lives to prepare for death. We do not have to wait for the pain of seeing someone’s death or the shock of being faced with a critical illness to force us to look into the meaning of life.

If you know how to die, you know how to live. Living and leaving are two sides of the same thing.

Death is not a mere incident at the end of your life. It is a profound knowing. If you know how to die, you know how to live. Living and leaving are two sides of the same thing. Your life will be totally different once you understand death.

Unclutch from creating, maintaining, destroying any thought and realize you are the Supreme Self, Parabrahma!

Ashtavakra says, You who have been bitten by the great black serpent of egoism ‘I am the doer’! Drink the nectar of the faith, ‘I am not the doer’ and be happy. Ashtavakra gives this technique to the king and seeker, Janaka.

Please understand that simply thinking that ‘I am not the doer’ or having faith that ‘I am not the doer’ will not liberate you directly. This technique by itself will not liberate you. It will just make you tired!  You are not able to remember that you are not the doer continuously without a break. The moment you understand that you are not able to remember ‘I am not the doer’ all the time, you will be completely frustrated and you will just drop the mind. The moment you drop the mind, the truth that you are not the doer will simply become reality! That is the technique suggested here.

Unclutching is like a self-purifying method.

This is a very simple understanding of unclutching. All you need to do is remember to unclutch whenever you start giving meaning to old thoughts or whenever you connect with old thoughts and allow them to bother you.
Do not create, maintain or destroy any thought. If you don’t do any of these three things, you are the Supreme Self, Parabrahma!

Unclutching is like a self-purifying method. For any technique to be self-purifying and liberating, the moment you become subtle, the technique should also become subtle, by itself. Unclutching is one such technique. The technique that does not become subtle by itself stays in the gross level. If it is not able to kill itself, if the technique is not able to commit suicide, it will kill you!

The beauty with the technique of unclutching is that it will become subtler and subtler by itself as you become subtler. Finally, it will dissolve.

Unclutching through the breath meditation

Let us see how unclutching is related to what happens every moment in your body – breathing!
Between the incoming breath and the outgoing breath is a neutral space. Your identity exists in the incoming and outgoing breath spaces. Constantly you can connect and see you are connected when you are aware of your breath. But in the gap of the neutral space your identity does not exist. You don’t connect the gaps, so you jump over this gap.

You think that the breathing space or breathing time is more than the neutral space. This is because you have more thoughts when breathing. Because you give more emphasis to your identity you think that the time of the incoming breath and outgoing breath is more than the time of neutral space. In reality it is not. It is just a psychological game.
