Dear Arya Sir
Thank you for introducing me to the concept of Dynamic meditation. Up till then I, like many others, always thought that one can only meditate by sitting still in one place and focusing on the inside. And then came this concept of OSHO which encourages one to not only move around but to scream,shout,dance..diametrically opposite of the conventional way of meditating.I am lucky to have experienced both.
Here is an account of my experience of the Dynamic meditation(3rd time) as taught by Grand Master Arya Kharb, of Arya Power Yoga Academy.
When I entered the hall ,it was vibrating with energy(of the previous group). The hall was lit up with the candle lights. It looked beautiful and serene. I started with Surya Namaskaars. I must say, I am happy with myself for following your instructions sir, each and every time the correct posture, right from swinging back from the waist, hast uttasana, hast paadasana ,plank position, ashtang asan, bhujang asana, mountain pose with both head and heels rooted in the ground like a mountain( hence the name), till back into samasthiti. Each posture I held correctly every time. And you were right,sir, it is not difficult to do so even if the count goes fast.
I dont' recollect how many cycles we did but we did surya namaskars for a good 15-20 minutes. After that a break of 1 minute and boy did we earn it:-).
Now we started with the meditation. Fast inhalation and exhalation with sound. It was so fast and loud that I felt as if my insides had been completely wrung out! By the end of it I was feeling a bit exhausted but a lot lighter as all the stress, repressed emotions and tensions had gone out of the door!
Then we raised our hands up in the air and started jumping all the while producing the sound "HUUM"loudly from the abdomen. This repetition of HUUM removes all negativity from us . When one is left with nothing, it is but obvious to feel and absorb all the energy and positivity that had been generated in the hall. I think this time I gave it my all, as afterwards I kept shuddering for a good 2-3 minutes. During AUM chanting also this shuddering continued. It was not out of exhaustion I am sure! But this was different from the other 2 times. We followed it up with Mantra chanting which infused me with feelings of serenity and peace.
Then came Yog Nidra. I was taken on a journey of visualization and imagination. When you asked us to go back to the worst,most painful moment of our lives I was taken back to the moment 17 years ago, when I lost my sister in a road accident right in front of my eyes..I am sorry to say but I thoroughly disliked you at that moment,Arya sir, for making me relive that pain and loss. And in the next moment visualizing the happiest moment..but of course the 1st time I heard my daughter's heart beat when I was expecting her...to visualise the valley of flowers, sunrise on the mountains..this I loved. What a roller coaster ride you took us on Arya sir for that 30 minute duration of the meditation. One moment pain, the next joy..but then what is life if not a series of moments strung together?
