Sivani Mata

Om ChantOM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because, by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe. www.youtube.com/watch

Mindfulness Benefits ~ Jack Kornfield

Mindfulness can be a foundation for something big. If you have a mindfulness practice, you know how motivating and energizing it can be. Mindfulness: A new beginning. But as I read through people’s thoughts on the comment boards, I noticed a powerful theme. . . new beginnings. Practitioners from around the world were sharing their hopes for the power of mindfulness. I saw people taking Jack Kornfield’s words and moving forward with them. So many commenters had a goal, a dream, a place they wanted to bring mindfulness practice. I found it truly inspiring. So I wanted to share just a few of those thoughts here.

“Such a practice in my work life and daily interests could only deepen any sense of harmony and joy. This seems a good time to begin to be more in touch with myself, and to assist in listening to and seeing people round me more appreciatively.” – Alastair Lov, Psychotherapist, Australia

“In my own practice, I hope to continue being patient with myself and allowing myself to stumble and fail with humility and gentleness. In doing this for myself, I also hope to help my patients do the same: to make room for illness, pain, stress and care for it with ‘loving attention.'” – Keith Haas, LCSW, Lexington, KY. www.osho.com/read/featured-articles/emotional-ecology/greed

Has sitting quietly to observe thought any value? ~ J. Krishnamurti

Is our sitting quietly every day to observe the movement of thought by your definition a practice, a method and therefore without value?' This channel is managed by the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust, UK, and by the Krishnamurti Foundation of America. The role of the foundations was described by Krishnamurti when he said, 'The foundations will see to it that these teachings are kept whole, are not distorted, are not made corrupt. They will not give rise to any sectarian spirit in their activities... nor create any kind of place of worship around the teachings or the person. www.osho.com/read/featured-articles/emotional-ecology/greed

Part 1: Greed - Osho

Just to understand the nature of greed is enough. You need not do anything else to get rid of it; the very understanding will clarify the whole mess. Man is full if he is in tune with the universe; if he is not in tune with the universe then he is empty, utterly empty. And out of that emptiness comes greed. Greed is to fill it: by money, by houses, by furniture, by friends, by lovers – by anything, because one cannot live as emptiness. It is horrifying, it is a ghost life. If you are empty and there is nothing inside you, it is impossible to live. www.osho.com/read/featured-articles/emotional-ecology/greed

Part 2: Greed - Osho

To me, greed is not a desire at all. So you need not do anything about greed. You have to understand the emptiness that you are trying to fill, and ask the question, "Why am I empty? The whole existence is so full, why am I empty? Perhaps I have lost track -- I am no longer moving in the same direction, I am no longer existential. That is the cause of my emptiness." So be existential. Let go, and move closer to existence in silence and peace, in meditation. And one day you will see you are so full -- overfull, overflowing -- of joy, of blissfulness, of benediction. You have so much of it that you can give it to the whole world and yet it will not be exhausted. That day, for the first time you will not feel any greed -- for money, for food, for things, for anything. You will live naturally, and whatever is needed you will find it. And you will live, not with a constant greed that cannot be fulfilled, a wound that cannot be healed. www.osho.com/read/featured-articles/emotional-ecology/greed

Mindfulness Meditation Practice - Thursday 5 July 2018

Om

The syllable "om" is first described as all-encompassing mystical entity in the Upanishads. Today, in all Hindu art and all over India and Nepal, 'om' can be seen virtually everywhere, a common sign for Hinduism and its philosophy and theology. Hindus believe that as creation began, the divine, all-encompassing consciousness took the form of the first and original vibration manifesting as sound "OM".

The Spirit of India ~ Ravi Shankar

The system of Indian music known as Raga Sangeet can be traced back nearly two thousand years to its origin in the Vedic hymns of the Hindu temples, the fundamental source of all Indian music. Thus, as in Western music, the roots of Indian classical music are religious. To us, music can be a spiritual discipline on the path to self-realisation, for we follow the traditional teaching that sound is God - Nada Brahma: By this process individual consciousness can be elevated to a realm of awareness where the revelation of the true meaning of the universe - its eternal and unchanging essence - can be joyfully experienced. Our ragas are the vehicles by which this essence can be perceived. www.youtube.com/watch?

The Prayer that Jesus Taught ~ Fr Gerry PierseWe have two ways of talking about God: the katapatic way when we say what God is like, and the apophatic way when we say that we can really say nothing about God. The first way if found mostly in the West which likes exact definitions and formulas. The other is found mostly in the East which is more accepting of mystery. There they would say, "When the wise man points to the moon, the fool sees the finger" The fool can think that the finger is the moon when it is only a few inches pointing to the moon that is almost 400,000 km away from us. What we say about God tells us as much about the Divinity, as a finger does about the moon. Some of our theological arguments are as foolish as arguing about the length of a finger in relation to the moon. Our images of God are images, and therefore not God. Our feelings about God are feelings about God, and therefore not God himself. Our words about God are words, and therefore not God. Again they say in the East "A wave becomes enlightened when it knows it is born of water." soundcloud.com/wccm/

Buddha Purnima ~ Osho

Today, just by coincidence, is Buddha's birthday, also his enlightenment day, and also the day of his death. He was born on this day, he became enlightened on this day, he died on this day. Today's full moon belongs to him. The West has a circumference but no center. People have everything, but something essential is missing. Science and religion are becoming one. They are already becoming one. I am not saying they will become one, they are already becoming one. All the greatest scientists -- Eddington, Planck, Einstein -- people of the highest caliber in the world of science, became aware that science alone is not enough. There is something far more mysterious which cannot be grasped only through scientific methodology and means, which needs a different approach, which needs more meditative awareness.

The Power of Presence - Eckhart Tolle

You may have noticed what Eckhart Tolle calls “the voice in the head”—the stream of habitual thought patterns and self-talk that absorbs the majority of our attention in any given moment. “There are millions of people in this world who are tortured by their own minds,” he explains. “Yet they don’t even know that because they’re completely identified with the self-talk; they are the voice in the head. This conceptual identity or ‘little me’ is always in a state of lack and unfulfillment.” "The most important life lesson to be learned is the realization of who you are in essence, beyond the person." When we are continually lost in thoughts and concepts, we miss the immediacy and the fullness of life in the here and now—the only place we can ever experience it. In our attempts to find peace, we create more suffering for ourselves and others. That is, until we discover Presence . . . www.soundstrue.com/store/power-of-presence

I saw my beloved's flower garden

In my drunken haze

Whirling and dancing like a spinning wheel

In my vertigo, in my dizziness

I was there in the beginning

And I was the spirit of love

Now I am sober

There is only the hangover

Writing with his daughter, Mpho, an Anglican priest, they lay out the simple but profound truths about the significance of forgiveness, how it works, why everyone needs to know how to grant it and receive it, and why granting forgiveness is the greatest gift we can give to ourselves when we have been wronged. They explain the four-step process of forgiveness Telling the Story, Naming the Hurt, Granting Forgiveness, and Renewing or Releasing the Relationship as well as offer meditations, exercises, and prayers to guide the reader along the way. "With each act of forgiveness, whether small or great, we move toward wholeness," they write. "Forgiveness is how we bring peace to ourselves and our world."

Om

(First played on Thursday 8th December 2016)

The syllable "om" is first described as all-encompassing mystical entity in the Upanishads. Today, in all Hindu art and all over India and Nepal, 'om' can be seen virtually everywhere, a common sign for Hinduism and its philosophy and theology. Hindus believe that as creation began, the divine, all-encompassing consciousness took the form of the first and original vibration manifesting as sound "OM".

Man wants happiness, that's why he is miserable ~ Osho

Why has man remained in so much misery? And the miracle is that everybody wants to be happy. You cannot find a man who wants to be miserable, and yet everybody is in misery. Everybody wants to be happy, blissful, peaceful, silent, everybody wants to be in joy, everybody wants to celebrate -- but it seems impossible. Now, there must be some very deep cause, so deep that Freudian analysis could not reach it, so deep that logic cannot penetrate it.

Before we enter into the sutras, that basic thing has to be understood: Man wants happiness, that's why he is miserable. The more you want to be happy, the more miserable you will be. Now this is very absurd, but this is the root cause. And when you understand the process of how the human mind functions you will be able to realise it. Man wants to be happy, hence he creates misery. If you want to get out of misery, you will have to get out of your desire for happiness -- then nobody can make you miserable. Here is where Freud missed. He could not understand that the very desire for happiness can be the cause of misery. How does it happen? Why in the first place do you desire happiness? And what does it do to you, the desire for happiness . . . The Discipline of Transcendence - Discourses on the 42 Sutras of Buddha - Vol 3 Chapter 9 The Full Sutras

Be Therefore Mindful ~ Osho

This sutra, from 'The Sutra of Forty-Two Chapters', has never existed in India. It never existed in Sanskrit or in Pali. This sutra exists only in Chinese. A certain Emperor Ming of the Han dynasty, AD 67, invited a few Buddhist masters to China to bring the message of Buddha there. Nobody knows the names of those Buddhist masters, but a group went to China. And the Emperor wanted a small anthology of Buddhist sayings as a first introduction to the Chinese people. Buddhist scriptures are very big, the Buddhist literature is in itself a world -- thousands of scriptures exist and they go into very great detail, because Buddha believes in logical analysis. He goes to the very root of everything. His analysis is profound and perfect, so he goes into very deep details. It was very difficult. What to translate in a totally new country where nothing like Buddha has ever existed? So these Buddhist masters composed a small anthology of forty-two chapters. The Full Sutra

The Three-Minute Breathing Space Practice ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

There are three steps to the practice:

Attend to what is. The first step invites attending broadly to one’s experience, noting it, but without the need to change what is being observed.

Focus on the breath. The second step narrows the field of attention to a single, pointed focus on the breath in the body.

Attend to the body. The third step widens attention again to include the body as a whole and any sensations that are present.www.youtube.com

First played 2 March 2017 - Followed by Monthly - Action for Happiness Meeting

Action for Happiness - New Malden Hub

Om Chant OM is the symbol of the universal heartbeat; it is not a word. And as you come closer and closer to the universal heartbeat, the by-product is a deepening silence. Shantih means silence and it is always repeated three times because by the time you reach to the fourth, you are no more – just the silence has remained. You have disappeared as an entity separate from the universe. www.youtube.com/watch

The Three-Minute Breathing Space Practice ~ Jon Kabat-Zinn

There are three steps to the practice:

Attend to what is. The first step invites attending broadly to one’s experience, noting it, but without the need to change what is being observed.

Focus on the breath. The second step narrows the field of attention to a single, pointed focus on the breath in the body.

Attend to the body. The third step widens attention again to include the body as a whole and any sensations that are present.www.youtube.com

Mindfulness Practice

Mindfulness practice couldn't be simpler: pay attention to the breath, and when your attention wanders, return. By following these simple steps, you can get to know yourself up close and personal. The essential meditation is Silence. We are made of sound and silence.Sound is our mind; silence is our being. Sound is our trouble; silence is our liberation.All other meditations are different forms of witnessing, but witnessing is present in every kind of meditation as an essential part. Vipassana Page

Happy ~ Derren Brown

Derren Brown has written a book on happiness, so it seems reasonable to assume he is something of an expert. He says he is happy, and judging by the bibliography, he has definitely read a lot on the subject. But I’m not sure the two of us agree on what happiness is. His book, Happy, advocates “contentment”, “tranquillity”, a “considered” life. It all feels so unexciting.“It doesn’t sound very joyful, does it?” Brown agrees. “But would you press the button for consistently joyful, which is clearly not real or a bit mad or exhausting, or would you press the button for a robust sense of calmness and balance?” I think, in that situation, I would hunt around for a third button, the one marked “frequent spontaneous bursts of ecstasy” – there is something listless about the thought of all that calmness – but Brown sees balance as “a much more helpful aim. I think it’s what we want.” www.youtube.com/watch

Going to the places that scare you ~ Pema Chodron

We always have a choice, Pema Chödrön teaches: We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us and make us increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder. In this talk, Pema provides the tools to deal with the problems and difficulties that life throws our way. This wisdom is always available to us, Pema teaches, but we usually block it with habitual patterns rooted in fear. Beyond that fear lies a state of open heartedness and tenderness. This talk is a guide on how to awaken our basic goodness and connect with others, to accept ourselves and others complete with faults and imperfections, and to stay in the present moment by seeing through the strategies of ego that cause us to resist life as it is. www.youtube.com/watch

Mindfulness ~ With Jon Kabat-Zinn

Jon chats about the deeper dimensions of a mindfulness practice and the ‘self-realisation’ that unfolds as a result of the practice. He also clears up some common misconceptions about mindfulness and invites us to know for ourselves the sacredness that is inherent in the present moment. He also answers the question, ‘Is there a right way to practice?’ or ‘a right tradition?’ and gives wise advice on dealing with one of the biggest challenges in awakening.

Watching The Breath ~ Osho

Every university, every science institute, should make it absolutely necessary that anybody who graduates as a scientist has also to graduate as a meditator. And meditation will be the priority. If you cannot pass as a meditator, you cannot be allowed a science degree from the university. That's the only way -- to make every scientist a meditator so that he becomes aware in himself of deeper things -- life, love, consciousness -- and ultimately the eternity of one's being....

OmThe syllable "om" is first described as all-encompassing mystical entity in the Upanishads. Today, in all Hindu art and all over India and Nepal, 'om' can be seen virtually everywhere, a common sign for Hinduism and its philosophy and theology. Hindus believe that as creation began, the divine, all-encompassing consciousness took the form of the first and original vibration manifesting as sound "OM".

Essence of Meditation ~ Laurence Freeman

Meditation is a universal spiritual wisdom and a practice that we find at the core of all the great religious traditions, leading from the mind to the heart. It is a way of simplicity, silence and stillness. It can be practised by anyone from wherever you are on your life’s journey. It is only necessary to be clear about the practice and then to begin – and keep on beginning.
