Silent Heart Meditation
Silent Heart Meditation
Debug the mind, cleanse the heart and leave the rest to the holy essence. A silent heart meditation based on the Sufi Naqshbandi practice.
The goal of Sufism is the development of certain noble qualities such as the purification of the self, purification of the heart, moral etiquette, the state of doing what is beautiful (ihsan), nearness to God, gnosis (ma’rifat), annihilation (fana) and subsistence (baqa). In short, the true purpose of Sufism is to transform the seeker into a highly humane and moral person by building the seeker’s character through spiritual training.
Today’s fast-paced, materially-oriented world challenges us to balance the demands of day-to-day life with the fulfillment of our inner yearnings. Many choices are available in the pursuit of knowledge. Among these choices, the Sufi teachings, transmitted through a chain of authorized teachers, offer a way to lead life in this world within the context of a comprehensive spiritual philosophy. The Naqshbandi-Mujaddidi line of masters in particular has considered the need for practical techniques that can be integrated with work, family, and social responsibilities. Their teachings may benefit seekers of different aptitudes and natures today, as they have uplifted seekers for generations. It is only by the blessings of respected shaykhs of centuries past that the Sufi teachings have endured.
To awaken the hidden powers of the self and make them operative in life, the technique of the School consists of a special form of meditation. This meditation results in an intuitive insight that enables us to begin to see all things in their true perspective, and to understand the truths about life and the universe in a proper light. It further opens up a new way of thinking that gives life a correct direction, develops one’s character, and provides a healthy ideal. It creates enough sincerity of purpose to correct the distorted notions and misguided actions of our life. In short, it serves to build up a noble personality and to discipline and optimize our lives.
Everyone who values an empirically-based approach to inquiry, has a genuine yearning for knowledge, and wishes to understand the reality of life is invited to try our techniques. An individual’s adherence to any philosophical creed or religion is not important in this process. It is suggested that any person who is interested in our work should contact our centre in the country where they live to get the information on our technique and we will advise them on the practices and how to start on the path. It is only through practical experience that a person will be in a position to assess the true value of our work.
The School does not aim at propounding or rationally explaining philosophical problems or theoretical creeds. It simply seeks to promote a Path purely of experience and actual practice.
