Twice today i have inadvertently been exposed to Dr. Lad’s teaching on effortless meditation so i thought it might mean i should share his wisdom. ENJOY!
“Meditation needs very little effort. At 7:00 in the morning inrush your teeth, drink a little water and herbal tea and then sit quietly. This much effort is required. But the real meditation is effortless. We are tremendously full of effort. We try to get rid of anger, which is an effort; we we try to get rid of fear, which is an effort. All efforts build stress and that stress diminishes ojas(life juice; vitality). During the day put out your effort but in the evening when you come home from work, practice a moment of effortless awareness. Sit quietly. Just float. That floating state of your mind is the effortless state of awareness through which you will glimpse God.” -Vassant Lad M.A.Sc.
