Ashrams / Ashram Meditation hall
« on: January 29, 2007, 09:50:05 PM »
I recently visited Ramana Ashram in Tiruvanamallai and it was a mind blowing place and the place had a certain vibration and tranquility. I could feel the master Ramana Maharshi's energy there in a big way. There were people in silence and meditatives. I could not approve the fact the meditation hall was hijacked by some preist who was chanting mantras, chamakkam and rudram in annoyance to the folks who would prefer silence and meditate. It is not about being in tranquility but to feel the presence of the master who graced this place. The priest grunting mantras was a turn off to folks who wants to receive the grace of the master and receive his energy. All these mantras chanting is to invoke a certain vibration to create a certain form of energy. When the priest is not initiated by the master and the mantras coming through a mind of a ordinary preist does not resonate with the master.
 I somehow feel the mantra chanting and meditation hall should be in different place and meditation hall should always be silent. Another suggestion is to have the mantra chanting only at certain space and leave the sandya kal time for meditation in silence only.
