Yog Nidra is an ancient, unparalleled and profound technique to bring about the experience of sheer calmness and quietude wherein body, breath and mind are totally relaxed. All signs are those of deep sleep but Yog Nidra is not sleep. Sleep is unconsciousness while Yog Nidra is the awakening of consciousness. Unhealthy lifestyles and stress cause hormonal imbalance, which in turn makes the body diseased. And at the emotional level, one keeps suffering from conflicts. It is due to such psychological stress that there is excessive mental activity, because of which mind remains trapped in the vicious circle of day-dreams, delusions, highs and lows. Yog Nidra is such a profound science of relaxation through which delving deep into the sub-conscious mind, we free ourselves of mental stress, release our samskaras, and bring equipoise in our lives. Where in Yog Nidra (part-1) one attains awareness, in this second part of Yog Nidra awareness gets heightened, facilitating deeper states of meditation. This in turn offers an opportunity to reach a higher state of consciousness, which increases mental and emotional capabilities as well as confers an extraordinary level of one-pointedness. Life is a priceless treasure and when mind is focused, calm and tranquil, life becomes filled with joy, love and bliss. Experience this wonderful guided meditation, in the soothing voice of revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa, which can transform your life, filling it with immense peace.
"Mind is always restless, traveling in the past and the future. It never remains in the present moment. Moreover, it is always engaged in numerous thoughts at any given time, leading to obsessive and compulsive thinking. And this is the fundamental reason why we lose our focus, and eventually the power of concentration and memory. With mounting pressures and endless pursuits to achieve lofty ambitions, we go on running endlessly. It is only when we learn to meditate that we begin to live life meaningfully. Tratak is one of the most powerful meditation techniques to enhance the ability to concentrate and focus which is a pre-requisite for undertaking and accomplishing any task skilfully. This ancient meditation technique is lucidly presented in this album by revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa for today’s fast paced times. It includes step-by-step instructions by Anandmurti Gurumaa, along with soothing music in the background to facilitate absorbing the technique in a beautiful way. It is the dedicated & diligent practice of this method that brings about incredible benefits which include mastering the art of concentration. So, practice, practice, practice...!"
When a Sadguru renders the majestic words of seers and sages through the mystical medium of music, they not only stir the strings of the heart but also suffuse it with the essence of divine knowledge. It is this experience that has been brought alive in this first-ever Gujarati album by Anandmurti Gurumaa, Gurunaa Vachano, presenting a unique collection of profound bhajans. Backed with exhilarating yet soothing music, it exquisitely weaves together the different facets of the spiritual journey. It extols boundless grace of the master, glory of enlightening wisdom, tenacity of the seeker, prayerfulness to the Lord, as these are indispensible for the inner flowering. It aptly begins with Bhramargufamaa Niranjan Jyoti, a perfect representation of the yogic tradition whereby the bio-electric currents ida and pingala are balanced so that sushumna can be awakened. It talks about awakening of the chakras and occurrence of ajapa-japa (uninterrupted resonance of the mantra) in the breath. Intriguingly expressing profound experiences, it points at That which exists beyond the comprehension of mind but is experienced by the meditator within the deeper realms of cosmic consciousness. Yet a lot remains unsaid, which seeks further exploration on the part of the seeker. Then comes the inspiring Aevi Tu Shakti, every word of which is filled with intense longing-ness. It is a heartfelt prayer seeking the grace of Lord, the blessings to be able to tread the spiritual path with great zeal and enthusiasm. With its captivating music comes Gurunaa Vachano, honouring the timeless truth expressed by the master. Extolling the master’s teachings, it prays for the quintessential wisdom to become part of seeker’s life. It emphasises the significance of cleansing the mind sullied by worldly matters with surrender, devotion and love. Thus it calls out to be pure so that the higher truth can be absorbed. Lovingly celebrating master’s grace, Guruji Maara Kaanmaa is about the untold deeper truths revealed by the master. It conveys how, without the association and grace of a master, it is difficult for an aspirant to go into deeper meditative states and experience Samadhi. The touching words of this bhajan are like floral offerings in the lotus feet of the master. The culminating track Ulat Chale So Paave is a mystical composition in which the deep spiritual practices have been expressed in coded language. Symbolising body as a temple of nine doors and head akin to an upside-down well filled with nectar, it encapsulates deep philosophy of tantric yoga.
It stirs the strings of heart with its intoxicating spell of divine nectar. Such is this resounding track featuring the mesmerising music of Ney, the Sufi’s flute, symbolising love, devotion, emptiness. It is an ecstatic invocation to the divine, a compelling invitation to explore the mysteries of the heart, a call to empty the mind of all worldly debris and be consumed by pure love & deep longing. It takes one to the space within where lies the ultimate treasure beyond description. For music encompasses that which cannot be defined or confined in words and envelops the listener in its entrancing spell. Listen to it relinquishing your mundane engagements, integrate your mind and move into the depths of inner stillness with this heart-melting rendition. Experience what it means to be empty, hollow like a Ney, to let the divine music flow through you…
An eminent poet and mystic, Baba Bulleh Shah is the quintessential Sufi, drenching, drowning and losing himself in divine fervour, intense love and passion for the Lord. Once an erudite intellectual, a scholar who only knew dry words, but not their true essence, it was the life-transforming encounter with his master, Hazrat Inayat Shah Qadri which made the wellspring of divine love erupt in Bulleh Shah’s heart. And it was only then that the inner flowering, the blossoming of divine joy happened, culminating in the heartfelt, intoxicating expression of rapturous poetry and divine dance. In this remarkable collection of profound discourses on Baba Bulleh Shah’s life, poetry and teachings, revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa brings alive the intense devotion, purity of heart and depth of reverence that Bulleh Shah embodied towards his adored master. Every anecdote and incident reveals the ecstasy and longing for inner communion and is immensely inspirational to all those who seek to know themselves at a deeper level. This unique DVD set is a compilation of the profound discourses on Baba Bulleh Shah given by beloved master Anandmurti Gurumaa during the meditation retreat in Rishikesh in 2001.
Sufi is all about Love. Sufi & Sufism have often been associated with religious fervour, whereas they are far from that, for how can fragrance be confined or the infinite be captured. But the fact of the matter is that one cannot have a true understanding of these until one encounters a Sufi. This unique DVD set offers a treasure of love and wisdom from the heart of a Sufi for all lovers of God. It is a revelation of an esoteric path never openly shared before, as well as an invitation to cultivate the divine qualities that make one Sufi - egoless-ness, purity, humility, surrender...It is verily the compassion of the revered master Anandmurti Gurumaa who has showered upon us these precious pearls of wisdom, explicating them lucidly, so as to inspire the yearning for divine communion. It kindles the passion to seek earnestly and pray from the depths of the heart for grace, benediction and love. Well, all this comes at the price of ego, for it is the annihilation of ego that paves the way for inherent divinity to manifest its grandeur. Come, tread the journey of divine love, ecstasy and bliss… This DVD set is a compilation of profound, mesmerising and insightful talks delivered during special retreats on 'Sufi' by Anandmurti Gurumaa held in 2004 & 2005.
