Silent Mind Meditation Program: Author’s Note
The art of Meditation is to bring the mind to a state of stillness such that thoughts no longer interfere with pure Reality and that which lies beyond time, space and self can be Realized. The Silent Mind (SM) Meditation Program is designed to help create this silence within by teaching the practitioner the powerful Silent Mind Meditation system.
SM is based on the power of the individual to develop acute perception into the workings of their own mind in order to perceive the Truth of What Is. It integrates Yoga, Pranayam (breathing exercises) and Bandhas (subtle body locks to channel energy) to build the environment to support the Silent Mind Meditations that are the core focus of the program.
It is designed as a course book where the program spans 12 weeks. The early weeks teach basic meditations and specific Yoga Sets to prepare the body and mind for the potent Silent Mind Meditations that come later in the course. Thus, it is very useful to the novice as well as the advanced practitioner. Overall, it is simply a very effective approach for transcending the ordinary, reactive mind.
The version currently on the website is quite condensed and concentrated so it might need some careful reading. One last thing, don’t give up! The perceptual requirements of Silent Mind Meditation are a human capability that you may not have worked to develop until now. Stick with the practice, don’t leave this wonderful planet without having reached your full human potential and fulfilling the highest goal of human life – Merging with Absolute Reality.
