Let us have the courage to pass through all experiences and for wisdom to dawn;

Let our senses take us from attachments to the Source that is;

Let our attachments become pathways to liberation freeing us from all concepts;

Let our freedom become a lighthouse uplifting all humanity;

Let us share our wisdom and recognise the permeating divinity for our consciousness to blossom;

Let our divine light shine brightly;

Let our light bring liberation;

Let its glow be filled with wisdom and compassion;

Let our light rise steadily and brightly even through devastations and storms;

Let it cast only the shadow of self-knowledge.

Let us all bless.

WHAT IS MEDITATION ?

By Sri Sri..

Q. : What is meditation?
Sri Sri : It’s very simple. When the mind becomes free from agitation, becomes calm and serene and is at peace, meditation happens. By doing meditation, you can turn your body into a power-house by generating an inner source of energy.

Q. : What are the benefits of meditation?

Sri Sri : You don’t get blood pressure and health problems. The mind becomes clear, intuition develops, obstacles and negative influences due to the planets will be removed and problems become smaller before coming to you. Mental peace, happiness and plenty of other benefits are there.

Q. : Why is meditation so boring?

Sri Sri : In the beginning it may be boring, but that will change. Stay on. Go step by step. Meditation is resting in yourself, becoming the seer from being the seen.

Q. : What is the distinction between sleep and meditation?

Sri Sri : One is vertical another is horizontal. For now, just think that much. But tomorrow when you sit for meditation don’t think about it. You’ll neither be able to meditate nor be able to sleep. Now is the time.

Q. : I always go to the sleep while meditating. Does it happen with everybody? What experience do they have? How to solve this?
Sri Sri : Don’t worry about the experiences of others. Be with your own experience and the experience varies from time to time. So don’t worry.

Q. : Is there any maximum limit as to how much we can meditate?

Sri Sri : Do only as much as necessary. There is no need to do too much. Meditation is like taking a bath. To wash the mind, you need meditation and once the mind is clean.

Q. : Why do I lose my concentration when I meditate?

Sri Sri : Concentration is not meditation. Meditation is de-concentration, letting go. Meditation calms the mind. It feels good.

Q. : What is equanimity? What is the significance of silence?

Sri Sri : Brain has two sides. The left side is logic and the right side is music. Both are needed to make one whole. If only music is there the brain won’t function properly. If there is only mathematical and logical mind, there will be no feelings and we will be deprived of the finer aspects of life. So, both are needed. When you are endowed with both then it becomes a satsang. Good song is a satsang. Don’t think about what there is in singing, or whom to sing about or why? Just sing, open your mouth and sing along or sing from the heart.

We observe silence only during mourning. But here it’s different. It is not like the silence of mourning. In mourning, we can’t stand silence for more than two minutes. Here it’s inner silence, a joyful silence. Before you go into silence, don’t keep any troubles in the mind, put it in the basket. We are here to calm the mind and when mind is silenced you experience true peace.

Q. : But in our daily lives, we also have to handle paying bills, parking vehicles and other mundane things. How can we do this with the same calm mind without getting irritated or perturbed?
Sri Sri : You take a shower in the morning to clean your body. After that you do all the daily activities. You don’t have to keep on taking a shower throughout the day. It is like that. You meditate and calm your mind, then go on with other activities. It is not easy to keep yourself undisturbed but will happen as you keep doing the practices regularly. Then it will become easy.

Scot’s LA DSN experience

Scot’s LA DSN experience

My journey over the last 7 months has been incredible. Can you imagine I did my first Part 1 Course at the end of July in San Mateo when Guruji was visiting the Bay area. The journey began! Since then I have done a Part 2 Course and two DSN courses, the last one being in LA with Anandji, who will be teaching the upcoming course in March.

Each course had its own unique flavor. But the DSN courses really helped me understand through experience not from the mind. I was able to see my own self-imposed limitations and break out of them, to laugh at myself, to be a witness to my actions, to lose my ego and, most important to me, to dance.

At Anandji’s Part 1 course at the beginning of this month, I shared my DSN experience there. I had told the group of 700 people that the DSN experience was transforming for me. At the end of the session, one person came up to me and asked me if there was a moment in the DSN course where I realized I had changed. I thought what a wonderful question. As I thought about it the answer was a grand YES!!! Witnessing my own transformation and seeing that there was one point where I saw the transformation was reason enough for me to have taken the DSN course. Learning from Anandji was another. Reading the notes describing the course, I can truthfully say that I experienced everything advertised.

DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!!!
