Written in 1979 as a sequel to his successful "Lifetimes" book, Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz presents 12 core techniques to help you to eliminate the stress in your life.
“Why does a person experience stress? Stress occurs because that which is within you -- which is light, intelligence, energy -- wants to do certain things and doesn't want to do other things. And that changes. Stress is a result of the fact that you're out of tune with your life and your inner being. If you are doing that which is within you, what that part of you that is beyond (the) body would like you to do, then you would not experience stress, because you would be very fulfilled." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Meditation is the process of stilling the outer surface mind so that you can become aware of the deeper mind within, which has all the answers. Your deeper mind knows everything already. If you can gain control of the surface mind, then the deeper mind will control the surface mind… it will send it the right thoughts and inspirations and feelings…. That deeper mind will direct you. And if you follow its directions, once you've learned to get in touch with it, then you will overcome stress. That is my solution to stress.” Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"What I term Tantric Zen, I could also refer to as old Zen, the original face of Zen, or new Zen, contemporary Zen practice -- no mind, the mirror of existence. Zen is meditation, the actual experience of life -- directly, immediately, with no buffers." -- Rama
"What makes us happy is contact with Light. As you have experiences with the inner light, which are gained through the practice of meditation and Buddhism, it immediately delights you." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
These two visual and musical explorations were produced by Rama, Dr. Frederick Lenz specifically to aid in relaxation and produce a deep meditative experience.
