Beginners and long-term meditators alike will appreciate Ajayan Borys’ counter- intuitive teaching that one needn’t control the mind to experience the benefits of meditation. Instead, as with falling asleep, ease is essential. Effort fuels accomplishment in the world of action, but in the realm of meditation, struggle blocks success. And just as dreams are a natural part of restful sleep, thoughts during meditation are no obstacle to receiving wonderful, revitalizing results.
With clear, user-friendly instruction, Ajayan presents classic techniques that can empower even beginners to experience deep, effective meditation and can help meditation veteran s go deeper. Offering eye-opening insights about finding growth and bliss in everyday life, Effortless Mind is filled with the practical and inspirational wisdom of a consummate teacher.
Ajayan Borys (a-Jay-an Boris) (aka Henry James Borys) has been exploring and teaching a variety of meditation practices since 1970. In his younger life, he studied in residence under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation Program® and spent a decade teaching the TM Program®. In the mid-90s, he studied with India’s most widely revered contemporary female saint, known as the “hugging saint” Mata Amritanandamayi or Ammachi, A-ma-chi), serving as the meditation teacher at her ashram in Kerala, India. Upon his return the US, he founded a uniquely effective program of meditation, called Effortless Mind®. http://www.ajayan.com/
