Six Questions of Deep Inquiry
In order to remove the illusions of understanding, we use deep inquiry as a very strong tool. It means that the student first needs to detach himself from the restless of his mind and find out the roots from where all his inner noise is coming. There are five sub-conscious and un-conscious hidden layers of these roots. Normally, everybody is living unawares of their presence. Once the attention is turned inwards through right questioning, they start to untangle. One not only becomes aware of these roots, one also understands their shattering effects upon one’s peace and happiness. All sane minds then start withdrawing from their attachments with these discomforting causes of agitation.
In the freedom downloads section, you can download the worksheet titled Freedom Worksheet. Use it effectively to understand the first two roots of your inner turmoil.
In the first level of the Z Meditation Retreat, you learn six questions of Deep Inquiry. They help in removing at least three layers of deep-rooted unconscious attachments – Causal feelings, Attachments and Conditionings. You also understand that you never need to run away to forests or monasteries to be peaceful. You cannot do that. Wherever you go, your mind will go with you. You just need to detach from your mental formations of clinging to the root-causes of restlessness. Once you understand the whole process, you only laugh at yourself for having delayed your freedom for so long!
