Monday is AUM-day; in search of meditation.
Meditation & Life, with Sw. Chinmayananda (Gurudev).
We are now exploring the writings of Gurudev on our focus subject of Meditation. The book is a thorough treatment of the subject and extends to over 170 pages of closely printed text. No attempt is intended, here, to present the text in its entirety. However, important paragraphs and quotes will be given, within a summary of each section. You are encouraged to use the links on sidebar to obtain a copy for yourselves from CM publications. Please remember that each of the posts under this title is part of a thought flow and it is important to go back and read the previous post in order to refresh and review the context.
The Gaayatrii Mantra
Readers, fellow seekers, you will recall that in the posts based on Kindle Life (Workings-days), this great mantra was also discussed. For this first Aum-day of 2016, you are requested to review those posts, as linked below. Everything which Gurudev presents in chapter 18 of Meditation and Life is covered there, with one or two small variations which do not greatly affect the flow. For this reason, no further writing here today. Next week we will pick it up again with chapter 19 - Silence the Mind.
