Master the Mind - Episode 17

Importance of Mounam & Being Mindful

I n the seventeenth discourse of the Master the Mind series, Sadguru Sri Madhusudan Sai provides the reader with a recap of the various activities practised over several weeks in the quest of mastering the mind. Sadguru advocates the need to embrace silence because it is in mauna (silence) that one can quieten the mind and hear the voice of God. Man’s success on this path depends on his efforts, his sādhanā. This sādhanā should be aimed at bringing one-pointed focus on the thoughts, ahaṁ brahmāsmi and sarvaṁ khalvidaṁ brahma. By being immersed in these thoughts, man’s buddhi can conquer the vagaries of the mind and help him realise Oneness with brahman. Sadguru explains the dependencies on the various vāyus and nāḍīs in the body, the regulation and correct alignment of which will help man progress on the path to Self-Realisation and attain lasting happiness and peace. Sadguru exhorts the spiritual aspirant not to settle for the view from the plains; instead, he should seek the view from the top of the hill to get the best experience. A handful of spiritualists can change the world, bit by bit and transform the lives of hundreds and thousands of youth!
