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.
Welcome to the Real party :-).
Keep going and let your intuition guide you.
Sorry, the meditation I was talking about was the Silent Mind Meditation. Just wanted to share my experience with it.
I watched your video on youtube about this meditation and gave it a shot. At first i didn’t know if anything was really going to happen but after following each step thoroughly, and after slowing my thoughts and honing in on effort, my mind then halted, and i felt this extreme, indescribable feeling of bliss or enlightenment. it lasted about 30 seconds. I was totally shocked. after getting back to reality my heart was beating very fast and i was breathing hard. It was very intense. I still don’t really know what exactly happened but am very surprised. Maybe i wasn’t ready for that much all at once?
Thank you for being such a presence when needed, the site, your instructions and the videos are well done and provide simply what I need without causing frustration from lack of understanding or difficulty with the website. Continue Anmol.
Dear Anmol and Trupti, I will be starting week 6 of the silent mind med program in a day or two and so far it is going really really well. I’ve combined it with many other yoga practices and meditations from the site which have altogether pulled me out of a dark place and set me on a much brighter path. Once again just wanted to say thanks, very very much. Wishing you and yours the very best, Gray.
Thanks for the update – glad to are sticking to it and feeling great :-))
I’m still with you. Just taking my time. Plan on moving up to part 2 the end of this week. I feel great!
Dear friends, will be starting on my 3rd week of the SM meditation program tomorrow. The benefits so far have been immense. Bless you and thank you, wishing you the very very best, Gray
Yes it can :-)
All the best,
can this programe be taken by a begginer?
Start with the Introduction to Meditation Course (#100). That is a great place to start learning meditation.
I have gone through your blog. I think you are doing a great service by guiding people who are interested in learning meditation to lead a peace and blissful life. My question to you is I am newbie to Meditation , I will appreciate if you can advice me which meditation technique to start with as there are many techniques on the blog. Thanks for the reply
Great to get your feedback. The SM meditation technique which you will encounter later is the meditation I practice. It is not the easiest, but it is the most direct and purest approach of insight meditation I know of.
Keep me updated on your progress.
