Psychiatry and Meditation

In the world today, there is much confusion, ignorance and controversy about psychiatry, meditation and the relationship between the two. Health professionals and mental health professionals are not even clear about the scope of their own field of expertise. Neither do they have a clear understanding of exactly what meditation is. It is little wonder, then, that the common man is puzzled.

Buddhism: A Method of Mind Training
26/04/2010 03:51 (GMT+7)
Buddhism is a way of life based on the training of the mind. Its one ultimate aim is to show the way to complete liberation from suffering by the attainment of the Unconditioned, a state beyond the range of the normal untrained mind. Its immediate aim is to strike at the roots of suffering in everyday life.

Holistic Education and Vipassana
26/04/2010 03:50 (GMT+7)
Education, said Albert Einstein, is that which remains when everything that is learnt in school is forgotten. If we evaluate modem education by this definition, its chief outcomes can easily be identified as aggressive competition, pride and envy. At its best, the modem educational system imparts some professional knowledge and skills, but it lacks any cultivation of heart.

Would you like to participate in an experiment in meditation? First, look to your posture: arrange the legs in the most comfortable position; set the backbone straight as an arrow.

25/03/2010 01:21 (GMT+7)
You've heard of Zen. You may have had moments of Zen. But what the bleep is Zen? The popular idea of Zen is that it's, like, Japanese Dada, with kung fu monks. I regret that the popular idea is a tad romanticized.

It is a truism to say that nobody likes suffering and everybody seeks happiness. In this world of ours, human beings are making all possible efforts for prevention and alleviation of suffering and enjoyment of happiness. Nevertheless, their efforts are mainly directed to the physical well-being by material means. Happiness is, after all, conditioned by attitudes of mind, and yet only a few persons give real thought to mental development; fewer still practice mind-training in earnest.

For the beginning meditator I believe it would be helpful to establish an order in the various steps taken in meditation. First, then, it would be wise to establish a place of quiet to which one may retire daily and not be interrupted in his endeavors. Then wash carefully face, hands and feet.
