Silence is the source of inspiration and creation

Do you know the power of silence?
Are you aware that our body actually heals faster when we are in silence?

After coming back from the 21-day Suddhadvaitam program at Kumbh Mela in Ujjain for 2 weeks, I am experiencing this vibrant silence in my inner space – the no-mind zone. I just want to sit by myself and unclutch from this mind maze because I could clearly see the inner chatters but the main difference is I can stop the thoughts whenever I want. As per Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra Verse #2, it states that ‘Yogaha chitta vritti nirodhaha’, meaning ‘Withdrawal from mental patterns is Yoga’. Now I am living it! I can say it is such a tremendous freedom!

I am able to distinguish that thinking is a simple yet subtle action of the mind. I am the only one who is responsible for the mind to go on in action. The moment I become aware, I can reclaim my responsibility over my unconscious actions, the mind can just be stopped by centering on my breath awareness and applying the unclutching – a powerful technique initiated by my master, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji).

Swamiji said that if the Cosmos (brahmaanda) is reflecting as it is in the inner space (pindaanda), the human body heals itself when we infuse silence and put the mind in restful awareness. The macrocosm is in a state of eternal silence, if we are able to get back to this original silence of a meditative state without the disturbances of the mind, the body (microcosm) naturally heals by itself. Unfortunately, we have been habituated to move away from this meditative state as taught by society. We always turn to solutions from outside because we have forgotten that it is the state of being in the inner world which determines the state of doing in the outer world.

I notice a deeper level of healing is happening within me, for example, the eczema I used to have at the elbow joints and knee joints had cleared up since I returned from Kumbh Mela. Suddenly, there is so much love for self and the whole which I never experience before.

The more I rest in the silence, the more I discover the power of being silent in the gaps of the breaths. Another fascinating happening is the stream of inspirations which keeps bubbling out from that space of silence. I was inspired to create a new yoga module based on working on negative emotions which I will be starting next week. When I directed my awareness in the silence to the new book I started writing this year, I was shown the new thought trends in the book content. As explained in Shiva Sutra by Swamiji, it is said that the gaps between the breaths is the space where we experience the Shiva consciousness (divine consciousness). It is like you are plugged into the Source and there is a whole new Source of inspiration which is coming from the Spirit (energy) and it is no longer coming from the limited identity (matter) anymore. In that space of silence, you are flooded with energy and intelligence. You start existing in a difference space and constantly you will be having inspirations and expressing creativity because God becomes your supply of knowledge and creation.

In essence, silence is the very source of inspirations and creation. The more time you spend being in silence, the greater the healing and creativity you will express. If you observe the body language of mystics, sages and enlightened masters, you will be able to notice it is the silence which creates their intense presence. Namaste 😀

Healing Through Meditation

 

What is the science behind healing through meditation?

There are a few basic Vedic truths that you need to understand in order to appreciate the science of healing through meditation.

First truth – The human body (pindaanda) is the microcosmic representation of the macrocosmic universe (brahmaanda). Both are made up of the same 5 elements – earth, eater, fire, air and ether. The human body is the most evolved bio-organism on planet earth which is capable of enjoying the best things in both the inner world and outer world.

Science of Healing Through Sound

From years of teaching experience, I notice there are some people who shun mantra chanting during yoga classes or meditation due to a lack of understanding of the science behind mantra or the wrong conditioning of fear. They do not understand the true power of science of sound. My intention in this article is to help shed more light to the non-believers and laymen.

More than 5,000 years ago, there was a time in Vedic civilization near the Ganges river of India, the use of sound technology was common in human’s daily life such as watching moving images in communion with Divine, flying an ‘aircraft’, building weapons for war, communicating with animals, breaking objects like stone etc. Just by producing certain sound vibrations, the civilization was able to lead a very sophisticated lifestyle by playing with sound and Nature.  On planet earth, there are 2 traditions: 1) light -based tradition or 2) sound-based tradition i.e. the use of light particles vs. the sound particles. In the Eastern civilization, they use the sound particles to win the cosmos while the Western civilisation, they use the light particles to win over nature. In earlier period of Vedic tradition, everything was done through the sound particles. The Vedic masters were able to summon Sun and Moon and any energy just by sound and achieved whatever they needed to accomplish on the earthly plane! To them, everything is possible by creating the right sound vibrations through mantras! Unfortunately, the mass destruction of this sacred science of sound happened during the Mahabharata War and a few natural calamities, hence this powerful science of handling sound and playing with extraordinary things did not get transmitted to future generations. This is a great loss to humanity.
