Discussion on the benefits of mental silence for mental and physical health with interview with Dr Ramesh Manocha.
The Search for the Divine Mother by Gwenael Verez
This book looks at our religion and spirituality from a historical viewpoint.
Many traditions attach great importance to the feminine dimension of the Divine. It is She who is said to give liberation, spiritual rebirth, that is to say Union with the Self. The most significant example is the knowledge of the Kundalini in India.
We may wonder why the Western religions have attributed an exclusively masculine, patriarchal character to the Divine. Several thousand years ago, was not the only form of Divinity, the object of veneration, feminine and maternal?
What is responsible for this neglect, this confiscation? Has the original message of these religions been distorted to the point that we are today unaware of the Mother-Goddess?
And could the Age of Aquarius, which is said to mark a change of consciousness on a spiritual level, perhaps be the moment where humanity is able to re-discover this awareness of the Universal Mother?
This book offers answers to these topical questions.
The Agnya Chakra, sometimes called the third eye, is placed at the centre of the brain. When Kundalini passes through the chakra, our thought waves elongate so that the space between two thoughts grows wider. As the petals of the chakra open, silence blossoms in the centre and spreads outwards, pushing the thoughts to the periphery of your awareness. In thoughtless awareness, you actually feel this beautiful silence which is at the heart of creation. Just like the vibrations, this expansion of silence is a wave created without percussion. Absolute and therefore beyond causality, all you can say is that it is.
The quality of Swadisthan on the right side is creativity, i.e. truly inspired thoughts, ideas and actions. The quality of Swadhistan on the left side is pure knowledge, i.e. the truly discerning and discriminating power to see the innate nature of things at a new stage in our awareness called vibrational awareness.
A presentation on the 3 channels of the subtle system and each chakra in turn. At each chakra, a relevant talk by Shri Mataji (founder of Sahaja Yoga meditation) is played. Music with a guided meditation is also included.
Patrick Sheridan is one of the first Sahaja Yogis in the West and he has written this book, Expecting to Flyer, in an attempt to reach out to all the lost seekers, especially those taking drugs. Long time ago, Shri Mataji (founder of Sahaja Yoga) asked him to write such a book. The book gives a candid account of the astonishing things he learned and experienced in her company over a period of many years.
