Z Meditation Work
The aim of the Z Meditation Work is to enable seekers reach a state of unconditioned peace, love and freedom. Doing the work in a rational and systematic way, they realize that their freedom is attainable in the Here and Now. The only requirements are Right Understanding of the nature of mind and detachment.
Detachment from one's own mind
The best deConditioning happens in a silent-retreat environment
In the Z Meditation Spiritual Retreats, the technique used is rational and analytical. You learn to detach from your mind's patterns and systematically root out the roots of turbulence using deep inquiry.You employ radiant and rational mantras to get established in your pristine glory. The silence helps a lot in deep contemplation and integration.
A Rational way of Meditation
Five principles of Z Meditation
It is very important that the principles of any mind work are clear and rational. These are the principles of Z Meditation that have been used to device Deep Inquiry, Radiant Mantras and the entire retreat structure:
No proof, No Belief
All belief should be scientifically substantiated. One should be able to experience one’s beliefs.
No Concepts, No Peace
There is zero possibility of suppressing the turbulence of the mind by mechanical means. For lasting peace, the concepts must be understood clearly.
No Mother-tongue, No Understanding
One thinks best in one’s own language. Without deep thinking, one cannot integrate the knowledge with one’s life.
No Tuning, No Music
Meditation does not mean torturing the body or the mind. It is an enjoyable and radiant way to clear the mind of turmoil and see things in the Truth-Light. The middle path is the best path. If you are into self affliction, you cannot think clearly. Without clear thinking, you cannot detach from your age-old conditionings.
No Integration, No Dance
Meditation is a way of life and not just a routine. If the rest of the day is not lived in conformity with what one practices in one’s meditation, one cannot make progress just by doing some monotonous motorized exercises.
Three levels of learning
Z Meditation Silent Retreats are divided in three levels. Once you join, you will have to commit two weeks of your time for the first two levels of learning. In the first level, you get all the essential knowledge about your mind and you learn to practice the Six Questions of Deep Inquiry. These six questions root out all your mental formations, habit patterns, attachments and conditionings in a systematic way.
In the second level, the learning deepens further and you study the Six Radiant Mantras. These Mantras are Truth Statements that invoke a state of unconditioned joy and love in your heart. You come to experience the wholeness of the moment. You learn and practice how to integrate your life with the marvel and bliss of the moment.
After the first two levels of learning, you qualify for the third level in which you get the Knowledge of the Eternal Self. This is the most subtle of learning possible for the human mind as you are embarking on a journey of transcending the mind. You need to be ready for this knowledge and it is only after the first two levels that a decision is taken as to who would go for the last level.
Lastly, having learnt and experienced transcending the mind, the deserving ones can go for the Z Teacher Training Course which is of twenty-six day duration.
Z Meditation has been instrumental in bringing about lasting changes in the lives of its students. After doing the course, one understands how to dig out all wrong notions from the mind and attain unconditioned happiness, love and freedom. For joining the retreat that is considered to be the best experience in the life-time by many, the only requirements are openness to learning and willingness to do the practice during and after the retreat.
