HOW TO REACH OUR INNERMOST THROUGH MYSTIC LOTUS MEDITATION(रहस्यमयी कमल ध्यान)?
MYSTIC LOTUS MEDITATION;-
1-The term meditation refers to a broad variety of practices that includes techniques designed to promote relaxation, build internal energy or life force and develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness.
Mystic Lotus Meditation,is a journey into yourself. For 3 weeks we go for 3 hours every day for a healing process, that transforms the body and mind. Then you are left with a childlike freshness and wonder.
2-Scientific research now shows that laughter improves our immune system, releases depressions, lowers blood pressure, relieves pain and is amazingly successful in all stress related conditions.Laughter and humour therapy is becoming widely recognised throughout our country & western countries , as a deep healing technique;and is practised in the major hospitals to help healing of the body.All that this world needs is a good cleansing of the heart of all the inhibitions of the past. Laughter and tears can do both. Tears will take out all the agony that is hidden inside you and laughter will take all that is preventing your ecstasy.
3-Whenever any experience is not fully lived in the moment, it leaves a residue inside us. It may be a small thing or something really significant but those residues or scars stay in the unconscious blocking our natural ability to
flower to our full potential.Whatever is left in the unconscious remains, waiting for an opportunity to be expressed, accepted, and resolved.
When we allow all our un-laughed laughter, our un-cried tears, and our un-lived silence to be experienced, we can allow whatever is in the unconscious to flow freely and be lived now – and be resolved forever.
4-The laughter, tears and silence do their work without the need for words, discussion, or analysis as is typical of conventional “therapy.” You just begin with totality and sincerity, and the rest happens by itself.
“The first part… for three hours, people simply laugh for no reason at all…. Digging for three hours you will be surprised how many layers of dust have gathered upon your being. It will cut them like a sword, in one blow.
5-When a man reaches into his innermost being he will find the first layer is of laughter and the second layer is of agony, tears.”For the second seven days,
we cry for no reason at all for three hours a day.“So for seven days you
have to allow yourself to weep, cry, for no reason at all - just the tears are ready to come.”
THE THREE STEPS;-
There are 3 steps to dive deeper & allowing meditation to happen...
1-THE FIRST STEP:-
Rediscovering the inner sources of laughter, joy, happines & ecstasy.If we laughs for twenty minutes without any reason, all our tensions disappear ,consciousness grows& the dust disappears.From your very childhood you have been told not to laugh .. 'Be serious!' You have to come out of that repressive conditioning.if you can laugh without any reason, you will see something repressed within you...
2-THE SECOND STEP:-
Be free of the painful memories of the past, agonies & suffering.
3-THE THIRD STEP:-
Letting the silence come to you.
For 21 days, Laugh for 3 hours a day for 7 days, Cry for 3 hours a day for 7 days, and then Sit Silently, for 3 hours a day for 7 days.For seven days continuously, three hours every day… you cannot conceive how much transformation can come to your being.
THE FIRST WEEK ; -
04 POINTS;- 1-In the first week we go into laughter totally to liberate ourselves from the sickness of seriousness.Laughter is a great medicine. It is a tremendously powerful therapy. If you can laugh at your own unconscious, the unconscious loses its force. In your very laughter your guilt, your wounds, disappear.
2-The first part removes everything that hinders your laughter - all the inhibitions of past humanity, all the repressions. It cuts them away. It brings a new space within you, but still you have to go a few steps more to reach the temple of your being, because you have suppressed so much sadness, so much despair, so much anxiety, so many tears - they are all there, covering you and destroying your beauty, your grace, your joy.
3-The psychological benefits will help you gain a new perspective on life and how to live joyfully in relaxation. In this delightfu situation we become more playful and are able to learn to laugh at ourselves and at life in general. Although it would seem impossible to laugh for three hours, the collective energy of the group can makes it happen. Many layers of inhibitions will be released in this week. You will laugh as you have never laughed before.
4-Experience says that if you can laugh rightly, in the right moment, it will bring you out of unconsciousness into the open sky, from the darkness to the light. Nothing makes you so total as laughter; nothing makes you stop your thinking as laughter does. Just for a moment you are no more a mind ,no more in time & have entered into another space where you are total and whole and healed
THE SECOND WEEK ; -
1-The second step is tears. Tears have been repressed even more deeply. It has been told to us that tears are a symptom of weakness – they are not. Tears can cleanse not only your eyes, but your heart too. They soften you, it is a biological strategy to keep you clean, to keep you unburdened. It is now a well-known fact that less women go mad than men. And the reason has been found to be that women can cry and weep more easily than men. Even to the small child it is said, 'Be a man, don't cry like a woman!'
2-But if you look at the physiology of your body, you have the same glands full of tears whether you are man or woman. It has been found that less women commit suicide than men.If the whole world can learn to cry and weep again it will be a tremendous transformation, a metamorphosis. 3-The second week of tears, takes us to a deeper level where our sadness, despair hurts and wound that hold us in fear and pain, can be released. Our tears have been deeply suppressed and this causes disease and illness and many psychological problems. In the expression and release through crying, we dissolve lifetimes of pain and suffering.
4-It can open us to a lightness and strength we seldom experience.The heart is frozen…and the tears are the beginning of its melting. The more you allow tears, the more the heart will melt. And because you have never really cried in your life, the heart has forgotten how to melt. But it is beginning to. It is getting the spark…it is sprouting.’
5-The first part removes everything that hinders your laughter – all the inhibitions of past humanity, all the repressions. It cuts them away. It brings a new space within you, but still you have to go a few steps more to reach the temple of your being, because you have suppressed so much sadness, so much despair, so much anxiety, so many tears – they are all there, covering you and destroying your beauty, your grace ...
THE THIRD WEEK;–
''The Watcher Within''
02 POINTS;- 1-The third step is silence.Become as silent as if you are alone on the top of an Himalayan peak, utterly silent and alone, just watching, listening... sensitive, but still.After all the cleansing and release of the first two weeks, we now easily drop into silence and meditation, allowing us to slip into our inner reality with relaxation and awareness.just watching whatever is happening inside or out.We become “The Watcher Within”.This week help us to become more centered in the present moment.
2-Take away all your scars and all your wounds and make you aware that you are just a watcher. A watcher cannot be wounded; no bullet can pass through it, no nuclear bomb can destroy it.Just be a witness.Go on witnessing whatsoever passes in the mind, and the very process of witnessing has the whole secret in it.Then you know that you are just the quality of reflection, that you are a pure consciousness, a witness, that you are a mirror and nothing else, that you are just a watcher, a watcher on the hill.”“That is freedom. That’s what is called liberation, nirvana.
WHAT IS THE NEED OF MYSTIC LOTUS MEDITATION?-
1-All the saints and the sages have been telling you, shouting ..'Go into yourself!' You listen to them, but you don't go. There is a reason why you don't go: you know that going in, you have to encounter pain,misery, suffering & agony. It is better to remain outside ..engaged, busy. Never be alone, because in your aloneness you may unconsciously start moving inwards. Being alone, you may start looking inwards.
2-People have invented all kinds of things to escape from themselves .Why do millions of people go on smoking type things?The reason is, it keeps you occupied. Even if you are alone, it does not leave you unoccupied.All your
conversations,your so-called busyness is almost without any purpose, without any business. But it helps just one thing.. you don't come across yourself. There is too much pain. 3-But behind the stupidity there must be some psychology and the psychology is: anything that helps you to avoid yourself becomes useful. Football match, volleyball,boxing... somebody else is doing it, you are just looking, but that looking takes you away from your own inside. 4-It is a healthy thing to cry, to weep, to laugh. Now scientists are discovering that crying, weeping, laughter, are immensely healthful; not only physically but also psychologically, they are very much capable of keeping you sane. The whole of humanity has gone a little cuckoo, for the simple reason that nobody laughs fully because all around there are people who will say, ''What are you doing? Are you a child? – at this age? What will your children think? Keep quiet!''
5-The whole of life has become just a utility.. either you are an inspector, or you are a police commissioner, or you are a minister, or you are a teacher ...just a function which any robot
can do.The only thing that the robot cannot do is meditation. In other words, those who are not in meditation are being robots, without being aware that they are just utilities, functions, they are needed.
6-But a man of meditation for the first time realizes that it does not matter whether he is needed or not – he himself is a joy unto himself. He himself is bliss, he does not depend on anybody to make him blissful. That is the only freedom possible in the world. Otherwise everybody is a slave.
7-Unless you become blissful on your own accord, unless your lotus opens within your own being, you are just a commodity, just a thing, an object. Meditation reveals your subjectivity. Subjectivity is your consciousness, and your consciousness and its experience makes your life significant, meaningful, eternal, immortal, without any beginning and without any end.
THE KEY NOTES;-
1-When a man reaches into his innermost being he will find the first layer is of laughter and the second layer is of agony, tears.If you go in... you will find both, laughter and tears. That's why sometimes it happens that by laughing, suddenly you find tears also start coming together with it ..
2-Its very confusing, because ordinarily we think they are contrary. When you are full of tears it is not a time to laugh, or when you are laughing it is not the right season for tears. But existence does not believe in your concepts, ideologies. Existence transcends all your concepts, which are dualistic, which are based on duality. Day and night, laughter and tears, pain and blissfulness, they both come together.
3- If you cry and weep without any reason, just as an exercise, a meditation...nobody will believe it. Tears have never been accepted as meditation. And they are not only a meditation, but a medicine also. You will have better eyesight and you will have better inner vision.You can also make use of pure sounds, as a technique to bring all your laughter and all your tears and clean you completely, so that you can become an innocent child.
4-All that this world needs is a good cleansing of the heart of all the inhibitions of the past. Laughter and tears can do both. Tears will take out all the agony that is hidden inside you and laughter will take all that is preventing your ecstasy. Once you have learned the art you will be immensely surprised: why has this not been told up to now? There is a reason: nobody has wanted humanity to have the freshness,the beauty & the purity of a lotus flower.
