Z Meditation Technique and Principles
Brief Audio Introduction of Z Meditation Technique
In Z Meditation Retreats, the state of blissful awareness is reached by deconditioning the mind of its absurd and painful stories using Deep Deconditioning Inquiry. There are so many unconscious beliefs that affect our actions and reactions. We learn to become aware of them and understand their effect on the mind. Following videos with Darcey, Cathy and Lewis will give you a glimpse of the work of deconditioning.

Problems of Life
Purpose of Meditation
The sweetest and highest possibility of a human being is to live in happiness and love. But when you look around, you see that almost everybody is living very far away from this pristine state of being. The vision of Z Meditation is to bring those who are sincere and willing back home. Those who have run far away from themselves and who want to come back to their centre may need some compassionate help, guidance and tools to be able to do so. We wish to guide the sincere seekers and provide them with tools for elevating their minds to the highest possibility.
Five principles of Z Meditation
No proof, No BeliefAll belief should be scientifically substantiated. One should be able to experience one’s beliefs.
No Concepts, No PeaceThere 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 UnderstandingOne thinks best in one’s own language.Without deep thinking, one cannot integrate the knowledge with one’s life.
No Tuning, No MusicMeditation 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 DanceMeditation 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.
Z Meditation step-by-step Method
The practice of meditation cannot deepen without clarity of the concepts. In the Z Meditation Retreat, we never ask you to take anything for granted or start from the faith platform. That is not required. We begin from the basics. There are meditation philosophy classes on the following subjects:
- The illusions of understanding
· Illusion of Reality
· Illusion of Duality
· Illusion of Incompleteness
· Illusion of Permanence
- Facets of consciousness – Waking, Waking Dreams, Dream, Deep Sleep and Blissful Awareness
- The three intrinsic Qualities of the Mind
- Ladder of Evolution
- Seven Laws of Peace
The six questions of the deep inquiry are simultaneously introduced as the theory unfolds. The students get a refreshing perspective of the meditation philosophy and they come to understand that it is not something religious or distant. It is about their very life – about their relationships, jobs, daily problems and the way to handle all these in the most efficient ways. It is about understanding the unconscious layers of one’s own mind. It is about straightening the priorities. It is about living in unconditioned peace and love.
In order to remove the illusions of understanding, we use deep inquiry which is a very strong tool. It means that the student first needs to detach himself from the restlessness 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 unravel and 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.
a. Causal Feelings
b. Incompleteness Equations
c. General Conditionings
You also understand that you never need to run away to forests or monasteries to be peaceful. You actually 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!
Having given up the root causes of agitation by employing deep inquiry, one now deserves moving into the experience of the purest joy. Using deep inquiry, when the life perspective changes and one’s own peace and happiness becomes of utmost importance, one is now ready to take a plunge for finding the real invaluable pearls from within one’s own self. The Radiant Mantras and like pointers that help in expediting the process.
The Third Level: Self Inquiry
The last lap of the retreat is for the advanced practitioners: those who are ready to outgrow the ‘I’ and ‘Mine’ notions. These notions happen to be the deepest layers of illusions that most of the people in the world are infected by. The students of this course study two great inspiring spiritual texts – Bhagwad Gita and Ashtavakra Samhita – in the theory classes. The deep inquiry deepens further with the introduction of the last questions about the Self. This helps in rooting out even the subtlest of illusions – ‘I’ and ‘Mine’.

Five Sheaths covering the Self
These are the various rungs of practice that all practitioners will go through :
- Freedom from wrong notions and suffering: We do it with Deep Inquiry.
- Establishment in right understanding and unconditioned happiness: We practice the six Radiant Mantras that teach us to fully live in the moment.
- Establishment in unconditioned love: The six Mantras help us achieve that also.
- Experiencing the Eternal Blissful Awareness as one’s true identity: As the Inquiry deepens further in the third level, one reaches this sublime state.
- Merging in the Absolute: All props drop in the end.
We require your sincere cooperation in this work. There is a saying that you can have the grace of God and the grace of a good teacher also, but unless you have the grace of your own mind, you cannot attain freedom. Your openness in learning and honest practice will ensure that you realize your highest potential.
