There is no spiritual journey without meditation. Meditation is the art one needs to practice to Know Oneself beyond body and mind. As one meditates, meditation becomes natural and one can be meditative in all situations. Through meditation, one can be at ease in all situations at all given times. Meditation is The Ultimate Solution.
At SOL, meditation is the core and all activities revolve around this core. Very simple and effective new Meditation Techniques for the modern human are being continuously developed by SOL since last decade.
Celebration is a way to express gratitude to Existence and channelize energies towards the higher. It is an immensely important aspect of spirituality so that the energy that normally flows down can start moving in upward direction. Nature has provided very simple and blissful ways to humans to celebrate including singing and dancing amongst others.
Singing is spiritual. Singing generates immense positive energy within us. Singing itself is so blissful that no other meditation technique is required if singing is done with totality. Even traditionally, a lot of emphasis has been given to Bhajan Keertan in various paths. Singing done with full totality can take you to Samaadhi. One of the finest examples is Guru Nanak who just sang his way to God. He did not do any special Yoga or other techniques.
At SOL events, we often have group singing activities where everybody just sings without any judgement along with a chosen song. Singing at SOL is a part and parcel of life and is encouraged. With us you learn to sing with totality - Singing that takes you to Silence.
Dancing is divine. Lord Shiva is also depicted as Natraj (Lord of Dance). Dancing brings Body, Mind and Soul in Harmony. There is no better meditation than dancing. When one dances in totality, Dancing and the Dancer dissolve into each other and only Divine expression of Dance remains. Dancing is not a performance - it is just feeling the music and letting the dance happen.
At SOL, Dancing plays a major role in meditation techniques as it helps to bring us into present effortlessly and achieving Stillness becomes very easy.
Wisdom is extremely important in spirituality. Without wisdom, it is not possible to go beyond mind. It is the mind that initially understands the miseries and pains of life and tries to find the path to Eternal Bliss. The intelligence/wisdom which we are talking about is one using which one can fathom the mind and stay away from pain and misery.
At SOL, our spiritual mentor shares his understanding on a variety of topics such as relationships, life, mind, heart, love, acceptance, attachment, death, meditation etc. according to present times and shows us the path to a blissful and complete life (inner and outer dimension).
We have heard so many times that Creator and Creation are One. Creative activities such as Poetry, Singing, Dancing, Painting, playing musical instruments etc are expressions of God which is why we feel immensely happy and satisfied after creating something. Creativity is Godliness. In fact, there is creativity in every act of a spiritual person.
At SOL, creativity is a way of life. Each and every form of creativity is encouraged and divine creative expressions abound in the group.
