Photocharge meditation-Destressing the mind-State of thoughtlessness


stressless mind - a state of tranquility

Meditation has been prevalent since the evolution of the mankind in different forms. The earliest written text about it comes from the Hindu religion as one of the components of the highly enlightened philosophy of "YOGA", where it has been called as "DHYAN" or mental concentration. Later on it was exported to China and Japan when the Buddhist monks reached there to propogate the new religion. It was then called by the names of Zen or tao etc. Yoga is a complete manual for the destressing of mind as well as the physical body in a very scientific layout. Its philosophy was considered sacred and was kept secret for ages. Lot many thanks and great respect may pass on to the propunders of this theory

Traditional meditation

Meditation is the mainstay in the process of destressing mind. Various forms have been prescribed with minor variations by various exponents of Yoga in the past.The meditation as prescribed by most of them includes sitting on the floor in a crosslegged posture with or without locking both the legs in an intertwining manner (Lotus position) followed by closing the eyes and then focussing or concentrating by magination in the area of the face between the eyebrows. All this was done with or without chanting some sacred "Mantras", prayer , wishful thoughts etc. Some exponents even ask for visual imaginations instead.

Why traditional meditation does not work?

In my opinion the traditional meditation methods fail due to two reasons in particular, leading to inability to get the desired results.

(1) Posture- To sit crosslegged on the floor for a long time stresses the vertebral column and the muscles in a very short time. Viewing this from the anthropological point of view shall bring out the flaw. Humans are bipedal animals i.e. their body weight is not only to be supported by the two legs but it is to be constantly balanced too. This is a very tiresome job to be carried out by a large number of the muscles and puts a tremendous strain on the vertebral column whenever we are walking, running or even adopting wrong postures in sitting, sleeping etc..This stressed vertebral column and its associated powerful muscles are furthur stressed in the posture adopted adopted in the traditional meditation methods, which does not permit a proper mental concentration. Remember a physically destressed body is a pre-requisite to a stressles state of mind through meditation.

(2) Closure of the eyes- It is essential to close the eyes in the traditional system of meditation, but as soon as the eyes are closed we find that stray and weird thoughts of all kinds surround us i.e. our mind becomes full of unrelated thoughts and worries- the same things which we originally wanted to remove from our mind. It becomes almost a paradox..The fundamental objective of meditation should be to achieve control of thought to desress the mind, not vice versa.

Photocharge meditation - the route to thoughtlessness and stressless state of mind

I have devised an innovative approach to meditation through my own expeience and practice and it appears to be the only route to a stressless state of mind. The procedure is simple, comfortable and easy to follow.

  1. One may be seated as usual on a chair or even be semireclined in an easychair. No need to sit crosslegged.
  2. Place yourself close to a window, rooftop of a building, open areas like parks, hills or even in a skyscraper from where you can have an obstructed view of either horizon or atleast 3-4 kilometres of clear path of vision i.e. no buildings or trees in between.
  3. Take care to see that there is no audible disturbances like car horns, music systems or chatting/shouting of people in the close vicinity. Noises are likely to break the meditation.
  4. Keep your eyes open and focus your vision (gaze) towards the horizon or the most distant object. Keep the line of vision horizontal, dont look upto the sky or in depths.
  5. Focus intently and try to see at the farthest areas. Very soon everything you see would appear blurred. Keep on gazing at the infinity for atleast a few minutes.
  6. Very soon you shall feel as if you are not there where you belong to. The mind shall be totally lost in the realms of the hollow space surrounding you and it would be in this state that you shall reach a state of bliss, a queer state of mnd. This would be the state of thoughtlessness. It is to be experienced to be fully aware of it and its pleasures. You shall lose all contacts with the thoughts in your mind and with your immediate physical vicinity. It would be akin to a state of semi-trance or self-hypnosis.
  7. Within a few minutes you shall automatically come out of this state when the eyes shall urgently need blinking. Often around five minutes or so. You repeat the procedure for as many times as you like and keep on adding the benefits, but 30-45 minutes in one session is quite reasonable.
  8. Do the same procedure for a few sessions as and when you like it and then feel the difference. Within a short span you shall feel as if a great burden has been lifted off your mind and that you are with more peace of mind than ever before. Gradual practice shall enable you to even put in a particular thought or a problem alongwith this meditation and I am sure you shall be able to take a decision or a solution of the same at the end of the meditatin session.
