Maharshi Raja Yoga Technique
« on: May 29, 2016, 11:59:41 PM »
In 'Who am i?' (nan yar?) , the title given to a set of questions bearing on self-enquiry put to Ramana Maharshi by Sri M. Sivaprakasam Pillai...

Ramana Maharshi puts forth a raja yoga technique for rendering the mind quiescent.

The technique :

Pick a thought -> as each other thought arises, think the chosen thought

It does not matter how many thoughts arise, after each one, think the chosen thought.

Is is the intention of the technique to still the mind, and control thought to quiescence.

In addition to the mind control technique, another means for strengthening mind is through darshan (the company of spiritual presence).

It is my insight that if two raja yogi's practice this technique together they can enter into samadhi.

A good thought to use as the chosen thought is :
'who am i' or 'to whom has this thought arisen'
