I think, what lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. This knowledge was expanded on, after doing a Nirahara Samyama. With KalaBhairava’s blessings I was able to finish all 21 days of Nirahara Samyama. Just Thinking on doing Samyama was itself impossible for me and I thought there is no way I can do it. I am happy I succeeded in first attempt. My experience of Samyama took me on much happier state of awareness. I felt like my mind was growing more pure and steady. Health wise I was growing stronger, I also lost 9 pounds of my weight. My feeling of self-disciplined powers me into action in every area of life. It enriches me to go beyond my potential.
The morning I started my Nirahara Samyama, I was extremely hungry and was on my way to work, but before living the temple we were talking on Samyama. I was thinking of taking this opportunity and start my Samyama. I dropped my thought of being hungry and decided to go for Nirahara Samyama. With Swamiji’s blessings I dropped my mind of being hungry. Astonishingly, I was not hungry even a bit for that whole day. Second day stomach started growling, but then I started chanting Swamiji’s mantra, and it disappear. I was juicing most of the time when I felt hungry, but as I progressed with the days, my body was not asking for any juice. I felt tremendous energy, even though I was not eating. During the second part of Nirahara, I appear like it is a part of my life and routine. The morning satsang and mediation, made me stronger, I was complete with so much energy. Swamiji’s luminosity and the power of his mediation were already breaking down my thought process. More and more energy was felt as days passed. I continued on my daily routine with my full time job, kids and their activities without any draining of energy. Cooking food for my family was more relishing. 21 day of Samyama went very fast for me. Upon completion I had more respect towards food, my eating pattern has changed. Before, I ate very unconsciously and automatically. Now I eat slow, unhurriedly, and becoming more aware of the taste of the food in the mouth and not just the tongue. With Swamiji’s blessings I am glad I did Nirahara Samyama, it’s an amazing experience.
