Just wanted people to know that I am on the Invincible America Assembly on the grant.  This means that I meditate 6 1/2 hours a day and get paid for it!

As most of you might know, a lot of research has been done on the effect of meditation on crime and world peace.  So some billionaires are paying for people to meditate full time.

I love the Assembly.  It's seven days a week!

I was just there last week. I went for Artwalk and discovered that Artwalk is a marvelous place to see people and get information. If you haven't been to Artwalk, you should go.

I was in the dome and it was nice. The same. Fewer people rounding I think because of the cutbacks in the Settle grant, but it was still very smooth.

Pundits leaving [Oct. 30th, 2011|01:43 pm]

My understanding is that right now there are about 60 vedic pundits who are leaving due to their student visas coming to an end. It will be a few months before we can get more to come, so any sidha who is not in Fairfield is being encouraged to come and be in the dome during November and December.

What is Yogic Flying? [Nov. 5th, 2009|10:18 am]
transcendental_meditation

draginja

Yogic Flying: The most profound aspect of the TM-Sidhi program—for the individual and for society—is Yogic Flying. During the first stage of Yogic Flying, while the practitioner sits in the cross-legged lotus position, the body lifts up and moves forward in short jumps. One branch of the Vedic literature, the Yoga Sutras of Maharishi Patanjali, describes this first stage as “hopping,” and further defines a second stage as hovering for a short time, and a third as complete mastery of the sky. Even in the first stage, the subjective experience is commonly described not just as inner peace, but as exhilaration, lightness, and an intense happiness often described as “bubbling bliss.”

As explained in the Vedic science of consciousness, Yogic Flying develops the ability of the individual to act from the unified field of all the laws of nature. The mind-body coordination displayed by Yogic Flying shows improved correlation between consciousness (the unified field) and its expression—the physiology. Since increased brain wave coherence is one indication of Transcendental Consciousness, moreover, it is significant that EEG studies have shown that during Yogic Flying, at the moment the body lifts up, coherence in brain wave activity reaches a peak.

Research also suggests that group practice of Yogic Flying is the most effective single program for generating a society-wide influence of peace. The increase in brain wave coherence in the individual is reflected by increased coherence in social behavior—as measured by reduced crime, terrorism and war. These results are easily reproducible and have been extensively validated through rigorous, peer-reviewed scientific research.

This community doesn't seem very active now but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway and seek some advice here. I want to get into transcendental meditation, but do I need to take a class for it? Or is it literally just sitting in silence for twenty minutes twice a day with your eyes closed? Is there a special breathing technique? Do you even need to breathe deeply like people do in meditation? Thanks so much for any help given! :)

 Has anyone been to Fairfield lately?  Any news from the community?  Any news from the dome?

 Someone was asking me about Fairfield the other day, and besides transcendental meditation, there are a lot of interesting things about the community that set it apart from other small towns of its size.  I'm sure people who have these things as interests could write extensively about these things in Fairfield, but just off the top of my head I would have to say that there's music, environmentalism, dancing, alternative healing, art, gems.  What else?

I went a spent a week in the dome last month.  It was totally wonderful.  I did notice that the flags are out of the women's dome.  I wonder what happened to them?  I went to visit a friend who lives in a little stapatchya ved village on north B.  She has a lovely home and keeps it really clean.  Wish I could keep my house that clean!  Oh well, she doesn't have kids living full time in her house.   Also spent some time talking to the fermented food people and the seaweed people.  Lots of people making and selling different varieties of food in Fairfield.  I always wanted to go to an artwalk, but haven't made it to one yet.
  
I hope everyone is having a great summer.  Oh, by the way, I saw Flying Yogi in the dining hall and was told to say hi to all of you.

Inaugrating the St Paul Peace Palace [Apr. 30th, 2007|11:25 am]

Inaugrating the St Paul Peace Palace

 

Last week the laying of the cornerstone of the Peace Palace of Minneapolis took place! I had helped in the search for land for the peace palace, but nothing really panned out. It started a few years back.  I ran around the northern suburbs hoping that somethign could be found here.  I remember the first day I went out to look.  I turned on the radio and the song "Across The Universe" came on the radio!


Eventually, someone (not me) did find some land and on Raam's birthday last year, we gathered to do the groundbreaking. J was going to do the groundbreaking I think, but his friends couldn't get his camera working. While he was helping him people were yelling, "quick, it's noon. you must dig the first hole." So I picked up the shovel and dug.

So this time, about a week or so ago, we were laying the first cornerstone of the peace palace. Our Raja came with his wife and he carefully did this ceremony. It was very interesting. He had a gold box and put some gems and grains and things in the box. He laid the stones just right, according to a diagram from Maharishi. Then he put the gold box in the ground too. I took lots of pictures. We all went out to lunch after that--but the raja couldn't. I think they spend a great deal of time on their program. I don't believe they have time for much at all. That night, we went to the center and the Raja came.  We watched a very wild video.  He said it was the anthem of heaven on earth and of course it featured Maharishi's pundits.  Then the Raja cut the cake and they left.  There were about twenty of us who stayed, ate cake and visited.

According to the Raja, they have the money to build.  They are just waiting a bit until the St. Paul City Council gives the OK.  :)

Maharishi University of Management [Apr. 21st, 2007|01:24 pm]

Hello, everyone!

I have recently been looking into the Maharishi University of Management and, since I have no experience with TM, thought it would be a good idea to get the opinions of some its practitioners. I was wondering if any members of this community would be willing to share their opinions/impressions of Transcendental Meditation. I was also wondering if anyone here has ever attended MUM, and if so, if you would recommend the school. I'd really appreciate any help. Thank you!
