“In the silence, I rediscovered who I am.”
Maun Dhyan is a day long, beautiful and a highly reflective dhyan sadhana, conceptualized and designed by Mrs. AparnaNevatia, which she conducts twice a year in the center. In this, the people participating shut down communication of any kind with any other person, for a whole day.
They start the day with Om chanting and do some Yoga for revitalising body and mind. After a few healthy bites of sprouts, fruits and salads as breakfast they practice meditation in various forms like lay yoga, mantra yoga, tatva darshan etc. Lunch and juices are taken by the participants themselves according to the schedule set before hand. It’s a day full of contemplation and meditation in which the Sadhaks try to immerse themselves and be one with music, and retrospection of the past, in which they endeavor to forgive others and themselves too.
After practicing various kind of dhyan and doing a lot of Swadhyay everyone feels a not so easy to describe peace within. The Maun is broken as the twilight touches the earth and experiences are shared with tears flowing down from most participants’ eyes they part with the eternal wealth of enormous bliss and solitude. For some, it was an eye-opener, for some it was an experience of a lifetime. But for all, it was rediscovering their most beautiful self.
