People often ask
“What is good for sex?”
The reply, as Professor Prakash Kothari, would say is,
“What is good for the body is good for sex. What is not good for the body is not good for sex.”
This dictum automatically answers doubts about alcohol and tobacco.
Similarly, meditation technique, that you learn from authorized, genuine, qualified master is good for the body, mind, soul. Well, it is just as good for sexual health. Each one is a sexual being.
Am I making the search for a teacher difficult by emphasizing too many prerequisites for a meditation teacher? It is to dissuade from learning from someone simply because the person is popular, with books and DVDs on Bestseller List.
Here I make your search for Meditation teacher easy by introducing you to an authentic source. Please read on about technique of meditation called vipassana.
Vipassana is one of India’s most ancient meditation techniques. Long lost to humanity, it was rediscovered by Gotama the Buddha more than 2500 years ago. Vipassana means seeing things as they really are. It is the process of self-purification by self-observation. One begins by observing the natural breath to concentrate the mind. With a sharpened awareness one proceeds to observe the changing nature of body and mind, and experiences the universal truths of impermanence, suffering and egolessness. This truth-realization by direct experience is the process of purification. The entire path (Dhamma) is a universal remedy for universal problems, and has nothing to do with any organized religion or sectarianism. For this reason, it can be practiced freely by everyone, at any time, in any place, without conflict due to race, community or religion, and it will prove equally beneficial to one and all.
