Tattva Meditation for Spiritual Awakening

Why Tattvas are Important?

Understanding tattvas help us to evolve our consciousness to higher levels. It purifies the mind and removes the ignorance. Tattva deals with the pure consciousness, material world and the three forms of energies. These energies are energy of intentions, energy of wisdom and the energy of actions.  Realizing the ever blissful divine Self, which is unchanging, omnipresent and omniscient, is the hidden desire of every human being. Tattvas show the way for  realizing that objective. The practice of tattva yoga accelerates the evolution of human beings.  Tattvas are the key concepts of  yoga philosophy. Knowledge of the 36 tattvas allows you to understand the laws of nature in a deeper way. You can use this yoga to attain greater brain power, health, knowledge, wisdom and happiness.

What is Tattva?

The universe is made of energy and Consciousness. Tattvas  explain the underline connection between our inner world and the outer world.  Tattva is a Sanskrit word meaning  ‘reality’ or ‘truth’. Tattvas are the basic concepts to understand the nature of absolute, the souls and the universe.

Meditation on tattva is a journey to the ultimate reality.  Knowing the tattva is the way of understanding inner psychology, the world and the beyond. The journey of tattva is a journey from  unconsciousness to supreme consciousness.  It is a journey from darkness to light. 

In chemistry, all materials are classified into 118 basic elements.  They are classified according to the number of protons in their atom. Similarly, in spiritual science all matters and consciousness are classified into thirty six elements. These thirty six elements are called tattavs. Tattvas are used to explain inner psychology, the creation and the existence of the Universe. Tattvas are connected with chakras and the tanmatras.

Meditation on Tattva:

Tattva meditation is a journey from gross to subtle. Tattva meditation  gives us the bigger picture and connects us the higher potential of life.  Our special tattva meditation class is a seven step meditation process. The first step is developing the theoretical knowledge about the tattvas. The second step is developing experiential knowledge about the gross tattavs in individual levels.

How Meditation Reduces the Oxygen Consumption of the Brain

How Meditation Reduces the Oxygen Consumption of the Brain

How Meditation Lowers Oxygen Consumption and Repair Brain Damage

Dr. Amit Ray

“Meditation is the artwork to awaken the divinity within you.” – Amit Ray

Meditation improves long-term ventilatory efficiency, gas exchange efficiency and  heart rate variability by lowering oxygen consumption and enhancing the divinity quotient. Divinity is the state of being connected with the source. It is the state when our heart is full with love, compassion, and caring. It is the state when our mind is full with joy, equanimity, peacefulness, and happiness. It is the state when we are relaxed, energetic, focused, joyful, creative, clear and compassionate. Deep 114 Chakra meditation is the best way to awaken your divinity. During 114 Chakra meditation the brainwaves of the entire brain get synchronized and produces deep relaxation, slower breathing, and a lower heart rate as a result a less oxygen is needed in each breath, and fewer breaths are needed in total. These meditations have seven powerful steps. Each step is unique. 

For good meditation we need the best circulation of blood in the brain. Scientists have explored meditation from different angles. Here we examined how meditation is linked to the oxygen consumption in the brain.

Oxygen is vital to brain growth and healing.  Brain cells are very sensitive to decrease in oxygen levels and don’t survive or function well very long without it. A continuous uninterrupted supply of oxygen to the brain is essential in order to maintain its metabolic functions and to prevent brain cell damage.  Meditation slows down the heart rate, decreases respiratory rate and this helps to calm the body and relax the mind.

72000 Nadis and 114 Chakras in Human Body

72000 Nadis and 114 Chakras in Human Body

Sri Amit Ray  tells us about the science of 72000 nadis and 114 chakras in our psychic body. 

Nadis are the pathways of the life energies and chakras are the purification and distribution centers of the life energies in our body. When the flow of the energies in the nadis and the purification and distribution processes in the chakras are perfect, we realize our divine true Self. If there is any blockage or disturbance in the nadis or in the chakras, we are disturbed and go away from our true divine Self.

Purpose of 114 chakras guided meditation, Om meditation or Vipassana meditation is to keep these nadis and chakras pure and clean so that we always remain connected with our divine self – the source of divine creative energy and pure energy of happiness. A lack of energy flow in the chakras can affect the physical, mental, psychological, emotional and spiritual health of an individual. Om has seven levels of vibrations and each vibration has its purification effect on the chakras and on the nadis, and they optimize the energy flow.

72000 Nadis and 114 Chakras in Human Body

Many spiritual seekers and researchers asked me about the exact science and presence of chakras and nadis in the human body.   To realize the nadis and chakras, you need deep awareness meditation. To understand the science of nadis in depth, you need a basic understanding of quantum physics, and the human nervous system.Read More »72000 Nadis and 114 Chakras in Human Body

Mindful Leadership: A Journey to Self-discovery and Empowerment

Mindful Leadership A Journey of Self-discovery and EmpowermentSelf-discovery and empowerment are two powerful components of mindful leadership. Through empowerment you can achieve your greatest potential. Through self-discovery you become aware of your true potential, values, character, and motives. Mindfulness strengthens these two powerful tools of leadership and management.  

The sacred spirit or life force energy is within us and around us. You can tap into the power of the universe, draw it in and use it to awaken our inner capacity for value based mindful leadership. We are not separated isolated beings, we are part of One Energy, connected to the vast universe.  Mindfulness is  our capacity to be touched by nature and beauty of the moment. Through mindfulness, we learn to see the wonder in small things—from a new leaf to a child’s smile.

Mindful Leadership and Self-Discovery

Self has many layers. Knowing the self is the beginning of mindfulness. What are my thoughts now? What are my feelings now? What is my experience now?  Who am I? What are my dreams, and strengths? Experiencing these powers of the truth with minute to minute honesty with self is the core practice of mindfulness.

Mindfulness Meditation for Corporate LeadershipMindfulness creates a positive mood, integrity, inner peace, inner strength, determination, and a warm heart. Researchers have identified that mindfulness enhances strengths, such as self-compassion, emotional intelligence, learned optimism, the relaxation response, self-esteem, distress tolerance, self-regulation, resilience, and executive functions.

Self-discovery is trying to discover who you are, your true potential, your purpose in life, and your core principles of life. It gives you the deeper sense of yourself and your unique role in the world. Self-discovery is a journey form unconsciousness  to consciousness. As you are mindful about your true values and potentials, you will build up a great confidence and inner strength.

“Self has many layers. Knowing the self is the beginning of mindfulness.” – Amit Ray

Mindful Leadership and Empowerment

Mindfulness based empowerment is the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights. Good leaders are characterized by their ability to empower themselves and their team members to achieve maximum success. Empowerment is gaining control over your own life. It is a process that fosters power in people for use in their own lives, their communities, and their society.

Mindful Leadership and EmpowermentMindful leaders have a more optimistic view of the ability to get good work from the team members. This belief makes them more likely to implement empowerment. Based on the recent studies of neuroscience, we can say that the brain takes its shape from what the mind rests upon. If you keep resting your mind on less-empowerment like self-criticism, worries, grumbling about others, hurts, and stress, then your brain will be shaped into greater reactivity, vulnerability to anxiety and depressed mood, a narrow focus on threats and losses, and inclinations toward anger, sadness, and guilt.

Mindfulness Growth Mindset and Neuroscience for Success

The fields of neuroscience, growth mindset, and mindfulness are all intimately connected to one another.

This article explored the neuroscience of growth mindset, and mindfulness. It also teaches you how to come out of your mental limitations and cultivate mindfulness and growth mindset. 

Many people believe that cultivating a development mindset and practicing mindfulness are the two most important factors in achieving contentment and pleasure in one’s life.

Even though life will try to knock you down, if you stick with your passions and create perseverance, grit, tenacity, and endurance, success will come to you eventually. The practice of mindfulness is shown to promote resiliency, grit, personal strength, and the ability to organize and structure one’s life. This article provides a summary of mindfulness, growth mindset, and the role that neuroscience plays in successful achievement. 

Mindfulness and Success Quotes

Resilience is your ability to deal with the ups and downs in life and bounce back from them. Grit is your motivational drive that keeps you on a difficult task over a sustained period of time. Growth mindset is a mindset that perceives challenges as an opportunity to learn and evolve rather than an obstacle to overcome. We are constantly evolving as we are interacting with the world. Mindfulness and growth mindset drives our evolution faster and on right tracks [1].

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness is noticing what’s happening right now with your thoughts, in your body, and in the environment without judgement. You can practice mindfulness anytime – when you’re in the shower, planning your day, or washing the dishes. And every time you practice, you make a small shift toward more courage, calm, clarity, and perseverance. To be an mindful person you need to exhibit witnessing and non-judging qualities on a consistent basis. 

Witnessing:

Witnessing and self-distancing are the best tools for effective mindfulness. By practicing  witnessing, you can distance yourself from your mental tendencies. Your thoughts, emotions, and mental problems are transformed, by their merging in the silence and peace of the witness. You can sit for 10 to 15 minutes of mindfulness meditation. Turn your attention to the contents of your mind; the internal chatter and the images arising and dissolving  in your mind. You can label your thoughts and images. Always maintain an attitude of a detached and kind observer.Read More »Mindfulness Growth Mindset and Neuroscience for Success
