Today’s Meditation:

Mother Inside

Celebrating the Mother Inside…

“Motherhood is a great meditation. Motherhood is one of the greatest arts: you are creating an alive being.
The sculptor is nothing compared to the mother, because he will be creating only a marble statue.
The painter is nothing, the poet is nothing, the singer is nothing, the musician is nothing, because they will be playing with things, objects.
The mother is the greatest poet and the greatest painter and the greatest musician and the greatest sculptor, because she is creating a consciousness – life itself.”
~Osho~

 

I said a prayer for the homeless
I pray no life is lived in vain
I lit a candle and i stepped out into the pouring rain
I went looking for the mother inside

World turning
Tears of redemption and forgiveness
I crossed that river looking for the witness
Looking for the mother inside

And the rain fell down like the
Tears of the virgin

Tears of joy for all souls emerging
Emerging from the mother inside

Sun rose at midnight
Clouds blew away
Eyes like diamonds
Leading me on my way
I went singing for the mother inside.

Yemaya, Shakti ma
Durga ma, Maria ma
Jai ma jai ma jai ma amma

We’re all the same under the skin
Unprotected, searching,
Searching for the mother inside

Birth and death,
In every breath
One lover
After another
As we search for the mother inside.

Oh mother earth
What did we do…
We took too much of you we
Were just reaching out reaching
For the mother inside.

(“Mother Inside”, from the EP “4 Songs – From A Well Lived Life” by Miten. Composition: Miten)

We are honoured to receive you.

Meditation may look serious, but as your practice deepens you will discover a joyful activity. Meditation is an adventure into Nothingness. An experience of ‘relaxed awareness’.

We are here to replenish the spirit and rejuvenate the cells, so take the time to slow down. Find a comfortable space to sit, where you can be relaxed and at the same time, alert.

Sit with an upright spine if possible, and relax your shoulders. Remember, meditation is not a serious activity. It is a gift from ourselves to ourselves.

Make sure you will be undisturbed for the duration of the session.

If you choose to lie down remember this activity is not about falling into sleep, so bring your attention to the incoming and outgoing of your breath, and stay alert.

As the mind wanders, take care not to blame yourself.

Just simply come back to the mantra and the rhythm of your breath.

We suggest you meditate with closed eyes so you will be undistracted by any external sensation.

Our suggestion is to create a daily ritual that will support your meditation.

This could include:

  • Lighting a candle.
  • Lighting incense or using an aroma lamp.
  • Ringing a temple bell (or chimes) at the beginning – and at the end – of every session.

We are practicing relaxed awareness. So do what you can to stay alert, and as your system gradually slows down you will become aware of the sounds around you. Listening to every sound, as God’s orchestra, your attention will eliminate the chatter of the busy mind.

Chant the mantra OM 3 times with the mudra ‘Namaste’.

This will tune you consciously into the energy of the sangha – your brothers and sisters and fellow travellers, who are also joining the meditation.

The duration of the meditation will be about 10-15 minutes. If possible, meditate at the same time, in the same location. This will create a nurturing habit that will support your practice.

 Most meditations will include chanting and we encourage you to chant with us – the words and translations given each day will deepen your experience. 

If you find that some of the mantras are too difficult, don’t worry. Just close your eyes and let the mantra penetrate your being. Let its transformative power wash over you.

Often we feel the effect of meditation when chant is completed. So don’t miss this powerful moment. Sit quietly for a few more minutes with your eyes closed, and give thanks by bowing in Namaste.

Complete your meditation with the Sanskrit prayer for Universal Peace:

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti. 

And – remember – the quality of your meditation will radiate peaceful frequencies into the cosmic field – you are contributing to the welfare of your global human family.

Have a joyous meditation!
