What is EZS Program?
Once we have understood about the spirituality within
us, what remains is to experience it personally.This is called self-realisation.
It is not simple. Most scriptures, religious discourses, discussions and centres
of worship aim at helping the faithful to gain this direct experience.
The Himalayan seers were very clear when they proclaimed that all
rituals and intellectual interpretations end where self-realisation begins.
No matter how articulately one tries to explain it, it is not possible to
describe to another person what a lime tastes like.
The taste of lime can be experienced only by directly licking it.
So it is with self-realisation ; one has to leave behind books, dogmas, rituals
and set out to directly experience the true self.
concept of EZS program
stands for " Extended Zero State".
What is the
"Extended zero state" ?
As we have already seen in this site, the
mind plays a dominant role in deciding our physical, emotional and
spiritual development. The mind is like a large screen where thoughts are projected like
Self-realisation can be experienced when the
thoughts playing on the screen of our mind are penetrated and we
begin experiencing the silence behind it.
In this silent space exists our true self which is boundless in awareness
The science of Yoga and meditation, utilises the power within each one of us
to go behind the clutter created by our mind and experience the power of
silence behind all thought.
This gives us the power to master
our mind and tap it's power through "controlled conscious silence".We call this controlled silence the
Extended Zero State(EZS).
States of mind.
It is generally understood that the mind has three states.
- The waking state - when the mind is active.
- The sleeping-dreaming state - when the mind is partially active.
- The deep sleep state-
when the mind is inactive.
The seers have described
a fourth state called "TURIYA". This state
is a combination of the waking and deep sleep states.
This state combines the Consciousness of the waking state AND
the silence of the sleeping state.
While this seems
to be self-contradictory, the seers developed methods to train others on how to take the
mind to this fine and subtle state. A state, in which we are awake and
aware, while experiencing the deep silence at the source of all thought.
In this state we are directly in touch with our enormous
inner potential. A state when we dispossess everything and yet be in possession of immense power and happiness.
This is a transaction-less state, where there is no good or bad, ugly or beautiful,
kind or cruel, but only an experience of nothingness and fullness, completeness
of the EZS program.
