Art of Living-Page: 5

Hi good day!

What do you all think about the Technique?

No Baba is going to come & put his hand on your head, mutter something & puff you have attained Nirvana. No such business. Its pure hard work, your instructed step by step & you work with yourself. That's it!

Its simple to practice, scientific (trust me on this, coz a person like me wouldn't go for 2sessions of it ;) ) . Everything depends on your willingness to work by yourself, for yourself. Your are taught the technique, you work for yourself. You get the rewards, no 1 else will benefit directly from it, but you yourself.

Its a 10day session. You have to stay at the Institute for the entire course. They are located all over the world. Choose which is nearest to you. The institute, lodging, entire management is so well managed that you will enjoy your stay there. These Center's are all run on charity(all over the world)!.

There are 5rules/precepts to follow during the course:
  1. to abstain from killing any being;
  2. to abstain from stealing;
  3. to abstain from all sexual activity;
  4. to abstain from telling lies;
  5. to abstain from all intoxicants.
The 2 biggest rules which people cant accept to do are:
1. To remain silent(Noble Silence) for the entire set of 10days.
2. After a light snack at 5pm, no meal is served till the next morning.

You are also not allowed to read/write/listen-except to instructions & the discourse in the evenings.

Dont worry its not out of the world! Nor do you have to have tons of patience, lil will do ;).

So make this your "This year's resolution", attend 1 session atleast.

Along with this, please read 'The Present' by Spencer Johnson, as homework for you all ;). Check the post about this book:

This may be last post about the Technique. We will have more post's tagged to this Label though or if you all have any questions/doubts about it.

Chalo bye. Enjoy each moment!!!
