7 Steps to Build Inner Strength and Resilience
Sri Amit Ray explains the seven ways to build inner strength and resilience.
Inner strength and resilience are the two key components to face and transform every challenges of life. Good inner strength will give you self-confidence. It also gives you determination, tolerance, satisfaction and energy. Life throws challenges but with patience and resilience you can convert every challenge into new opportunity to grow. Having a resilient spirit becomes an asset.
1. Identify your True Purpose of Life
God has given you many gifts - but in some areas you are very very special. Identify those special areas where you can grow, contribute and get maximum satisfaction of life. If you can't find your purpose at some point of life, life will throw you challenges - and you need to convert those challenges into opportunities. When you set your purpose properly, you will activate more positive energies, gain better balance.
2. Focus and Hard work
With focus and hard work, anything is possible. Small things matter - your daily exercise, your values, your food habits and thinking patterns can make difference. Positive people are able to recognize that problems are not obstacles that get in the way but are new opportunities for creativity and problem solving. Every moment is a new moment to rise up and move forward into the victory.
Time management is vital for success. Make to do list and isolate top three items in the list and give them priority to complete. If you have too many people and too many friends, you will be obstructed in your focus. Focus and concentration are essential for inner strength. Don't allow life to overflow with unnecessary activities.Read more ..

In Upanishads, this higher aspect is sometimes called the Atman or the “inner light of universal truth.” Our Higher-Self loves us unconditionally, totally, completely and without exception. Your Higher Self knows you more intimately than you know yourself. When you align yourself with the Higher Self , you will become more relaxed, fulfilled, happy and creative. You will learn how to connect with your Higher Self.
Quantum Consciousness and Upanishads
The idea of Quantum Consciousness came from Quantum physics, which is the best theory to describe the behavior of atoms and subatomic particles. Everything in this Universe is not made of matter. Instead, it is made of energy fields or information frequency patterns. Our mind and body is no exception. Quantum consciousness studies the relationship between mind-matter-energy and manifestation in the light of quantum physics.
According to the teachings of the Upanishads, there is one intelligent all-pervading consciousness that permeates the whole Universe. Consciousness has the power to "collapse" wave-like quantum states into a single well-defined state. Quantum consciousness studies the relationship between mind-matter and energy and focuses on how consciousness manifests as matter and energy.
We can change our consciousness through meditation. In the class you will learn the art and techniques of positive manifestation by changing your consciousness. By changing your consciousness you can create a new electromagnetic field which would match your desire with the potential in the quantum field of information. Quantum theory says, wave function collapse happens in the mind of the observer but not for any physical reason. Hence, mind has enormous power when it is connected with the Universe in a proper way.
About the Program
Upanishads are knowledge of the eternal coming directly from the Cosmic Source. They were revealed to the sages and Rishis who lived a fulfilling life. They imparted this wisdom and art of living often to their sons, daughters, wife and disciples. This ancient teachings of the art of living had been obscured, misinterpreted and lost over time. Upanishadic Meditation is meditation distilled from the ancient repository of knowledge taught by the seers.
Based on their years of deep Sadhana in the Himalayas, Dr Amit Ray and revered Banani Ray had distilled these techniques from the Upanishads and infused it with the understanding of modern science to deliver a unique experience to the participants. Upanishadic meditation and Quantum consciousness is a perfect platform where science is married with spirituality, where the boundary between the sacred and secular fades away.
This is a life-changing experience, designed for those seeking a deeply transformative path of applied spirituality, which you can live in your daily life for inner awakening and deepest relaxation and focus, which means an empowered and enlightened living. Mental clarity and peace are just the byproducts.

ATMAN = BRAHMAN
The primary focus on the early Upanishads are Brahma-vidya and Atma-vidya, that is the knowledge of the Ultimate reality and the knowledge of the individual self and the relationship between individual self and the Ultimate reality. The key formula of Upanishads is Atman = Brahman. The word ‘Brahman’ is derived from the Sanskrit root "brih." It means which expands, thus suggests, a reality which is dynamic, ever blissful, alive and limitless. When Jivatma merges with Brahman, it is called “self-realization” or Moksha or Nirvana. These meditation techniques are purely focused to lead towards that ever blissful nature of the Self.Read more ..

Rediscover Your True Self - Transform the Darkness into Light
You are, inherently, whole and pure. Stress, strain, conflict, and other hurtful experiences may have covered your naturally intact core, but you can recover it. You can work from your inner resources and uncover your true Self and you can transform your darkness into light. Dr. Amit Ray here explains the power of Cosmic Self meditation for higher alignment with the pure Cosmic Self for happy and fulfilling life.
Power of Self-completing:
Self-completing means finding the light within and thereby aligning with the cosmic light. Meditation on cosmic Self, is the best way to align with the cosmos. Individual self is incomplete without its deep connection with the cosmic Self. Our Cosmic Self meditation techniques aim to reunify the individual with cosmos. Fulfillment comes when you free yourself from the artifices and regain original naturalness.
Once you rediscover your simplest and purest Self, your operations within the material world become effortless. You become harmonize with the cosmos.
Union with the cosmic Self
Union with the cosmic Self is not reserved for an elite of spiritual seekers. You don't need to renounce the worldly life and isolating into unnecessary complexity. Self-completion lies right in front of your nose. The attitude with which you carry out your activities in daily life can turn anything from serving tea to sweeping the yard, into an act of fulfillment. Recognizing the presence of cosmic Self in everything, and operating in consciousness with this realization, is the essence of our cosmic Self meditation. You will realize that you are complete as you experience the present moment. Who Am I meditation is a special seven step technique to realize the cosmic Self.
Connecting the Energy Points with the Cosmos
The internal meditation process requires a firing process, which consists of moving vital energy through the human energetic metabolism. You energy points are distributed across the body some are blocked and some are open. There are 114 energy points and 72000 energy channels in human body. There are energy points under the soles of the feet, in the palms of the hands, and at the crown of the head. They serve to expel old vital energy, and absorb fresh refined energy into the body. A human being is healthy when pure vital energy runs fluidly through all energetic structures. Vital energy flow supplies the body and its organs with balanced sun and moon energies. “As within, so without” applies to everything, because everything is informed by the same underlying Truth.
It is a cosmic dance." -- Amit Ray
Viraja River is a spiritual concept of ancient India. Sri Amit Ray explained how one can transcended the flow of time or arrow of time and enter into the zone of timelessness. He explained it, in the light of modern spirituality and modern quantum physics and modern cosmology.
From my childhood, I hard many stories about the Viraja River. My mother use to say, if one's mind is in perfect equilibrium and emerged into the deep cosmic God consciousness, one would cross the Viraja river even while living in this world. Later I realized the Viraja river can be crossed in deep samadhi especially through deep Om viraja kriya meditation. Through special deep meditation Om Prana Kriya and Om Viraja Kriya meditation one can cross the cosmic mystical Viraja River.
Modern Physics and the Viraja River
Recently, I was reading some articles on how quantum computing can reverse the arrow of time published in the Journal of Physical Review. Viraja River is the ancient concept of Timeless Universe. The researchers of the quantum physics said that the the arrow of time is not an absolute concept; it strongly depends on the choice of initial conditions — so it’s relative. Viraja River is the river of timelessness because time does not exist at the other bank of the cosmic river.
Modern physics suggests that we can look at the entire history of the universe as a single four-dimensional thing. If you were to stand outside the universe—outside both space and time—and look at your own life, you would see your birth, your death and every moment in between laid out as distinct points. From this angle, time does not flow, but is static and fixed.
Viraja River is the boundary between the material dimension of time and the spiritual dimension of timelessness. In deep meditation or after death the souls that exist on the material side of the Viraja are eternally conditioned, and the souls on the spiritual side are eternally liberated. Crossing Viraja river is going outside both time and space. On the other side of the Viraja river is the zone of eternal bliss and light.
To cross the Viraja River - the river of light, joy and timeless you don't need die. Through deep meditation you can cross the Viraja river while you are alive. -- Amit Ray
