Well basically shardul......"Tough" aint the word apt in the context u were speaking about!!!Its actually patience and perseverence which is required..Though i sound very bookish and (Mahaanish)...Wil tel u what.....I was 88 kilos when i wrote my medical entrance examination...Then took up this training in which my polyphagia(magnanimous appetite) has never been affected or altered for about 3mnths and u guys wont believe i lost 15 kilos(AINT A JOKE AT ALL!!!)...and yoga aint tough its just that u need to take some time out of ur daily routine(15-20 min is really good!!!) and u will really reap awesome results...Well taking pranayama into the picture like about jus closing ur eyes and keepin a good watch over ur breathing with ur mind's eyes for 10 min will truly refresh ur vision and thought processing for sure...regarding yoga there are sets of really good exercises called "SURYANAMASKARAS" which all u guys might have heard of...Jus about once or twice every day which wil take 15 min...That means those "ASANAS" in that process are to be done with perfect breath regulations preferrably early morning will make ur Day,Weight and Life near to perfection..This is a Guarentee from me....But gotta do them sincierely and everyday!!!!Peace out world!!!
yes, meditation does helps a lot in your examinations, especially during tense years such as IIIrd MBBS.
With my experiences, I can assure you that minimum 20 minutes of meditation a day routinely & at least 10 during exams will be miraculous to your results.
I've got excellent marks in all exams during my MBBS carrier with much less reading as compared to others. I definitely say that this is the contribution of meditation.
It is not important how you meditate, but that you do try to meditate & learn from wahatever source available. Just like 'sabhi raste ak hi bhagvan ke pas jate hai', same in 'sabhi tarikon se ak hi tarah ka meditation hota hai'. You may meditate(be 'nirvichara'-thoughtless), may concentrate or just relax. The ultimate result should be your innate relationships with your inner wise, brilliant & powerful self. This is what makes miracles.
The easiest method I have experienced is to be relaxed at a calm & peaceful place, then concentrate on each group of muscles, agonists & antagonists alternatively, contract & relax them alternatively only once & leave them in permanently relaxed condition(whoi can do this better than we doctors!!!). You have to do this with all the muscle groups(flexors, extensors..) at each joint from leg to head. After the last muscle- orbicularis occuli- concentrate on your respiration- inspiration & expiration- forget everything & 'watch' yourself as a third person, as if you are watching your body respirating. With practice, you will learn to do all these processes quickly & automatically.
Try this & you will feel more relaxed during the whole day, u'll feel more energetic(meditation is connection with your subconscious, which itself is the infinitive energy source), your learning will be much improved, confidence will increase(so u'll give better viva!!!), & last secret, try to visualise your result in meditation after some practise, & I'm sure you will see that in your marksheet! (This is my personal experience, I've got desired marks in all 3 uni exams by doing this, with total 6-7 hrs sleep during both theory & practical exams, with minimal reading & wit hcontinuing all my hobbies all the time..)
Hope this will be helpful to students willing to meditate & I invite them to share their experiences & difficulties in this practise..
When we speak about meditation what comes in mind usually seating relax in solitude. When we speak about Meditation essentialy we should speak about spirituality in our life, beacause I think Meditation is realising self in purest form & realising god, tapping this energy. Surely Meditation will help us by this , but my question remains same if meditation is realising self then is concentrating on something or relaxation or chanting some mantras can be called as meditation.
Again I want raise a question that what is basic purpose of meditation? ( main aim meditation must be to achieve something all we are getting are byproducts of process).
Yes, all the benefits & achievements of meditation are definitively by products. The most important thing what I think is that you should know yourself. & I don't think any one but a Dr can understand the body better! That's why I've always believed that a Dr should be always spiritual. more than any others.. But what I've seen so far is quite opposite to this.. y, I don't know.. let it go..
If we have understood our bodily physiology well, I don;t think any one of us will agree it is by chance. There is some spiritual power behind the world. just see the growth of a fetus inside uterus! all is so well-coordinated & planned that we( or at least I!) can not believe it is without any control. without any influence..
I think, to know that spirituality, is meditation. To feel as a part of that great system, is meditation.
I don't think relaxation or mantras or concentration or.. are meditation. they are different ways to meditation. All have experienced the divinity through different ways, & all have shown these ways to mankind. whichever way you may choose, the final point should be a state of non-ending inner peace, egolessness, love, total acceptance, total absence of inner or external conflicts, & realization or awareness of the beutiful world & its creator.. may u call Him the whatever..
Nice to hear you parin. I am also of opinion that Dr should be spiritual. When we get into deepness of anything we go into spirituality, but understanding spirituality is..................... what can I say , I think Creator will be the only authority who can give you exact knowledge of this. People think about God as Almighty authority, people think God is power or a post but I must say that he also person with authority of love. His actual greatness is not the thing that he is almighty but loves all of us probably more than any one.
What do you think?
It is always good when we find someone to be thinking like ourselves! So, glad to meet you!
You are absolutely right. He is not an authority, a person with all the power nor the highest post. I think He is pure love. Thinking of God, personally, what comes to my mind is picture of lord Krishna, but look at others, from any religion, they will be a great combination of love, service, selflessness.. (make list of virtues!!) & absence of negatives..
I never think Him as a ruler.. No, He can't be.. I myself become full with pleasure when I think how I was made out 2 cell stage! any one mistake, only one, would be enough to make my life dependant. I could have been blind, deaf, lame.. what not! but I 'm not, that's His love..
& I believe whoever feels himself/herself to be unlucky/unhappy should remember this.. There were so many possibilities that you could have been more worse than this.. & u are not becoz of His love..
I don't think this bcoz of only my spirituality, but I think this approach, if we give to patients, especially those suffering from severe/lethal diseases, it might be great help for them. Hope psychiatry will have to do a lot in this direction..
Thank you for starting this thread.. Yes, meditation has been scientifically proven to enhance memory, reduce stress and anxiety among so many other benefits. Just google n the list is endless The best part is you don't have to sit for an hour to see tangible changes..even 10 minutes twice a day is good enough. I have been practising since some time and i find becoming aware of the breath the easiest method. You could also try online guided meditations or meditating listening to nature sounds. Since we are in a career where we encounter suffering around us daily, its important to be emotionally and mentally healthy so that we remain calm and are able to spread goodness in our little way. Meditation can be whatever you want it to be for you..productivity enhancer, gateway to your real self..whatever you choose to see it as. The important thing is trying to stick to it without thinking too much about the outcome. You ask what is the aim of meditation.. I think its peace and getting closer to the reality beyond all these illusions..
