The Art of Mental Mastery

Meditation is the art of mental mastery. The way we perceive the world around us completely depends upon our mind. In our search for happiness, we essentially have two optionsmodify the entire world so that everything turns out exactly the way we want it or modify our mind so that we are able to be happy, content and peaceful, regardless of what happens in the external world. The former is obviously impossible. We have very little control over our external world. The only hope for happiness lies in controlling the inner world. Meditation is a key element in this process.

Take up the Remote Control of Your Mind

Amma, the Spiritual Master who synthesized IAM Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique®, says, "The remote control of our mind should rest firmly in the palm of our hand." Imagine one with such mental control. Emotions, ideas and memories are at his beck and call. If anger comes, he can change the channel. The same with jealousy and greed. He can recall any past event, like reversing a DVD. If he wants ideas, he only need turn to the "idea channel" and a stream of creative ideas will flow forth. No more staring at the blank screen of writer’s block. Total and complete mental control—this is what IAM (Meditation) offers.

Daily Mental Maintenance The mind is like a machine. But it is completely up to us to maintain that machine properly. Only then will we be able to get the maximum potential out of it. We should also know how to turn the machine off. This, sadly, has become a lost art, and the very reason we see so many people around us "blowing fuses." IAM (Meditation) Technique is a daily mental maintenance system.

"It is like a muscle training for your mind. It sharpens your concentration. At the same
time, the technique calms the mind down. So it also helps you relax.
"When I face difficult situations, I am more laid back now. If I have a problem with
somebody or if I am facing some strong emotions, I'm able to cope with them much better.
IAM helps me to stand back and watch my emotions. I have gained the ability to respond
intelligently rather than react emotionally."
