Meditation, Mind Training and Self-Mastery from the Masters
What you'll learn
- In this course, Meditation, Mind Training, and Self-Mastery from the Masters, you will learn about what real meditation is and how you can begin practicing this amazing exercise. Meditation is a tool that can be used for the gaining of information. Information about ourselves and just about anything else. If you are not gaining information from meditation, then you are not meditating properly. This course will explain and teach you how to use meditation as an investigative tool.
- Just a desire to learn how to meditate.
The state of meditation is the natural state of the consciousness, unconditioned, unfiltered, serene, perceiving, and understanding. In the state of meditation, by reflecting on a problem or question, we can find answers, insight, wisdom, guidance. In the state of meditation, we can perceive what is hidden from the physical senses. In the state of meditation, there is no debate, dogma, belief, or theory: there is only the experience of what is real.
Real meditation is:
a form of perception
a way of getting information
a precise science
Since the state of meditation is the natural, normal state of the consciousness, anyone can access it, but first one must know what is preventing it from being our normal state. So, when we study meditation, we should not be trying to “make meditation happen,” but instead be recognizing what is preventing it from happening.
Once the obstacles are removed, meditation happens on its own, immediately, spontaneously, in the same way that air escapes from a punctured balloon, or water escapes an overturned bottle.
The state of meditation is effortless. What takes effort is the work to remove the conditions that prevent meditation from occurring.
You can follow the instruction given in this course to develop your own experience of the state of meditation. Meditation should become a powerful tool of investigation and analysis.
Who this course is for:
- Anyone interested in starting to meditate.
- Anyone interested in developing meditation skills.
Hi! I have spent several years in India learning from Swamis about the spiritual path and philosophy. I learned meditation while in the Ramakrishna Ashram in New Delhi and Chennai, India. I have spent time in Tibet learning from great teachers as well. Meditation taught in the East is unmodified, meaning it is in its pure and true form. This form of meditation can bring you to a state of consciousness where you can perceive things. I wanted to create courses to explain to people the purpose and methods of meditation and other spiritual practices as taught by the Eastern masters. These spiritual techniques can be of great value to everyone when they are done in their original, unmodified forms.
