Learn how Meditation and Mindfulness control and reduce your Fear and Anxiety

Our earthly existence is fraught with fear. Most people have one or more fears in their lives. Some people fear that they may die. For others it may be fear of falling down, fear of a creature, fear of failure, fear of public speaking or even the fear of rejection. The list can go on and on.

Why does Fear Exist at all?

Nature has created ‘fear’ in animals as a tool for self-preservation. We human beings as a species are no exception. We feel fear, as well as related emotions, in order to protect ourselves from danger and to heighten our awareness. If we didn’t have fear, we would have been careless and that could endanger our lives.

Mindful Painting

Mindful Painting

lighted lotus

I have  painted

A rainbow in my mind,

Stealing the colours

From the butterfly.

I have painted

Joy in my heart,

Stealing the blue

From the Buddha’s face.

Search not outside

But find him within,

And you’ll find

Nirvana effortless.

From the book “Buddha’s Smile” by Banani Ray

What is the difference between Om mantra and other ordinary Words?

Om is no ordinary word. It is the Word of the words. As the Bible says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1) OM is the breath of God, the breath of the eternal, the voice of silence.
