WHAT IS THE INTRODUCTION & THE DESCRIPTION OF THE 84 & 85 th ( SIX TECHNIQUES CONCERNED WI


THE INTRODUCTION OF THE 84 & 85 th TECHNIQUE OF MEDITATION;-

08 FACTS;-

84. ''Toss attachment for body aside, realizing i am everywhere. one who is everywhere is joyous''. 85. ''Thinking no thing will limited-self unlimit''.

1-If you don’t know anything about the mind…. And really, you don’t know anything about it. Mind is just a word. You don’t know the complexity of it. Mind is the most complex thing in existence; there is nothing comparable to it. And it is the most delicate ... you can destroy it, you can do something which cannot then be undone. These techniques are based on a very deep knowledge, on a very deep encounter with the human mind. Each technique is based on long experimentation.

2-As far as meditation is concerned; If you don’t know what to do, don’t do anything, because mind is very intricate, complex, delicate. If you don’t know what to do, it is better not to do anything, because whatsoever you do without knowing, is going to create more complexities than it can solve. It may even prove fatal, it may even prove suicidal.

3-So remember this, don’t do anything on your own, and don’t mix two techniques, because their functioning is different, their ways are different, their bases are different. They lead to the same end, but as means they are totally different. Sometimes they may even be diametrically opposite. So don’t mix two techniques ... use the technique as it is given.

4-Don’t change it, don’t improve it, because you cannot improve it, and any change you bring to it will be fatal. And before you start doing a technique, be fully alert that you have understood it. If you feel confused and you don’t know really what the technique is, it is better not to do it, because each technique is to bring about a revolution in you.

5-These techniques are not evolutionary. By evolution mean that if you don’t do anything and just go on living, in millions of years the meditation will happen automatically to you, in millions of lives you will evolve. In the natural course of time, you will come to the point to which a Buddha comes through a revolution.Really, these techniques are revolutionary... they are shortcuts; they are not natural.

6-Nature will lead you to Buddhahood, to enlightenment ..you will come to it one day — but then it is up to nature; you cannot do anything about it except just go on living in misery. It will take a very long time; really, millions of years and lives.

7-Religion is revolutionary. It gives you a technique which can shorten the lengthy process, and with which you can take a jump .. a jump which will avoid millions of lives. In a single moment you can travel millions of years. So it is dangerous, and unless you understand it rightly, don’t do it. Don’t mix anything on your own. Don’t change.

8-First try to understand the technique absolutely rightly. When you have understood it, then try it. And don’t use this common motto that when you don’t know what to do, do something. No, don’t do anything. Non-doing will be more beneficial to you than any doing. This is so because the mind is so delicate that if you do something wrongly it is very difficult to undo it . It is very easy to do something wrong, but very difficult to undo it. Remember this.

THE DESCRIPTION OF 84 th TECHNIQUE OF MEDITATION ;-

41 FACTS;-

1-LORD SHIVA REPLIES;-

''Toss attachment for body aside, realizing i am everywhere. one who is everywhere is joyous''.

2- There is a deep attachment to the body ...bound to be, it is natural. You have been living in the body for many, many lives, from the very beginning. Bodies have changed, but you were always with a body, you were always embodied.

3-There have been certain moments and times when you were not embodied, but then you were not conscious. When you die from one body, you die in unconsciousness and then you remain unconscious. Then you are born again in a new body, but then too you are unconscious.

4-The gap between one death and another birth is unconscious, so you don’t know how you will feel when not embodied. You don’t know who you are when you are not in a body. You know only one phenomenon, and that is of embodiment; you have always known yourself in the body.

This has been so long, so continuous, that you have forgotten that you are different from it. This is a forgetfulness ...natural, bound to happen in the circumstances ...hence the attachment.

5-You feel you are the body ...this is the attachment. You feel that you are not anything other than the body, not anything more than the body. You may not agree with the point, because many times you think that you are not the body, you are the soul, the self. But this is not your knowing; this is simply what you have heard, what you have read, and what you have believed without knowing.

6-So the first thing to be done is that you have to realize the fact that really this is your knowing ..that you are the body. Don’t deceive yourself, because deception will not help. If you think that you already know that you are not the body, then you cannot toss aside the attachment, because really for you there is no attachment, you already know. Then many difficulties arise which cannot be solved.

7-A difficulty has to be solved at the beginning. Once you lose the beginning, you can never solve it; you have to come back again to the beginning. So remember well, and realize well that you don’t know yourself as anything other than the body. This is the first basic realization.

This realization is not there. Your mind is befogged by whatsoever you have heard; your mind is conditioned by the knowledge of others... it is borrowed, it is not real.

8-Not that it is false ...those who have said it, they have known it ..but for you it is false unless it becomes your own experience. So whenever someone say something is false, It mean it is not your experience. It may be true for someone else, but it is not true for you. And truth is individual in this sense .. that truth is truth only when experienced; not experienced, it is untrue. There are no universal truths. Every truth has to be individual before it becomes true.

9-You know, you have heard; this is part of your knowledge, part of an inheritance .. that you are not the body ..but it is not real for you. First toss aside this unreal knowledge. Face the fact that you know yourself only as the body. That will create a great tension in you ..it was just to hide that tension that you gathered this knowledge. You go on believing that you are not the body and you go on living as the body, so you are divided, and your whole being becomes non-authentic, pseudo.

10-Really this is a paranoid(an extreme and unreasonable feeling that other people do not like you or are going to harm or criticize you )condition. You live as the body and you think and talk as the soul ... then there is a struggle and a conflict and then you are constantly in an inner turmoil, a deep unease which cannot be bridged. So first encounter the fact you don’t know anything about the soul, the self ..all that you know is about the body.

11-This will release a very uneasy condition in you. All that is hidden will come up to the surface. In realizing this fact that you are the body, you will literally start perspiring. In realizing this fact that you are the body, you will feel very uneasy, strange, but that feeling has to be g
