Meditation When I think of Transcendental Meditation I automatically think of the Beatles! Although Im probably not the only one, I think theres probably a bit more to learn! The Transcendental Meditation movement (also known as TM) was started by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. He started teaching in 1955 and developed a teacher training program. TM was enormously popular in the 1960s and 1970s and is endorsed by many celebrities today, including David Lynch (Im a fan of his) who regularly speaks about the Benefits of Meditation. As a meditation writer, I come across so many different methods of attaining inner peace. Some of them resonate with me, perhaps because they are similar to the way that I was first taught to meditate in India. Others I find more challenging. Recently, I was asked to take a look at neologicaltech which sells a range of devices that lead the user to wonderful, deep meditative states. Im not sure what some of my teachers would say about this, but I was prepared to check it out! The site offers free guided neo meditations for healing and advises an exact 11 minutes of meditation a day. I certainly agree that 11 minutes meditation per day would be very beneficial to anyone, as I have often said (well, I usually say 5 or 10, but there is nothing wrong with 11! Ten plus another one minute is one minute better!) One of the mantras recommended is the Shurangama mantra which is claimed can provide protection from poisoning. The Shurangama mantra was transmitted by the Buddha to Manjushri Bodhisattva to protect Bhikshu Ananda before he had become an Arhat. Another mantra is Vairocannas mantra of light this can help with healing trauma in soldiers and the earth. One thing is for sure, the neologicaltech site is very pro earth and conservation, which has to be a good thing. When in India I did have the wonderful opportunity to be given some mantras now and again by various gurus. I didnt always know what I was saying, but the repetitive action of saying the mantra over and over again is certainly quite transcendental in itself and led to wonderful states of concentration. It is said that it is not necessary to understand the mantra, I learned that it can be beneficial to repeat mantras using just the holy sounds and syllables. Neological Technologies have produced some meditation aids called neo meditation cubes. If you are one of the growing number of people who are into aliens, astral travel and all of that exciting stuff, you can read the testimonials here: ..neologicaltech../Testimonials_s/60.htm The site offers guided meditations which are free to listen to on Youtube. The narrator has a wonderful calming voice that is very conducive to meditation. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
