This short film consist of an exclusive interview with His Holiness Swami Paramananda on “Meditation for the Contemporary Man”. The master answered questions on the need for the practice of meditation and its purpose in the life of “so called modern” man. The contemporary man tends to indulge too much in activities which results in stress; a certain period of time is necessary to relax the brain, mind and heart completely. The right balance between activities and relaxation should be reached so that at least half an hour in the morning and the afternoon is devoted to meditation. Meditation can be described as profound relaxation. Normally much physical, emotional and mental energy is directed outside however for meditation, for consciousness to expand, tremendous energy is required. Thus the reason for sitting a few hours or one hour per day silently, to direct the energy inside. People often has misconceptions on meditators and their approach to life. Meditators can be said to be the only persons to celebrate life really as they awake. As you meditate, you merge into this infinite ocean of energy and live as such and as it is said “energy is delight”. A person who is completely detached from his body/mind/emotion can really enjoy life. As meditation increase you become an observer, you are like an actor. When you are attached you become unconscious, you get drowned, while meditation helps you to disidentify. When people start meditating there is an inner churning which goes on and everything that has been suppressed comes up, hence the need for the guidance of a master. Meditation cannot be learned from books. Many people even start teaching meditation without any experience of their own. That is very dangerous. Only an enlightened being is therefore entitled to really teach meditation. Our whole life should be a meditation. For a start, a specific time, place and a certain amount of discipline is required. The optimum time is thirty minutes before sunrise or sunset. The term “Contemporary” should be rather be seen as a futuristic expression since as argued during the course of the interview, man is yet to be born. For that, it is primordial to embark on the inner journey under enlightened guidance as espoused by His Holiness Swami Paramananda.
