The biggest gift any parent can give to his child is to convince, explain and motivate them to sit in meditation at least for an hour everyday. This gift to the child is basically a gift to the whole mankind. Every child is the future. Unless and until we nurture the child through the seeds of silence & meditation, we are ending up with a catastrophic world. What exactly is meditation & why is it so important? In Japanese terminology, they term it as ” ZAZEN” – sitting doing nothing. Every parent wants his child to be successful but at the root of success is meditation & that we tend to forget. The childhood of every child is fed with all sorts of borrowed beliefs, age old dogmas & mechanical rituals. Adding to this, the education system of our schools & colleges fill the pure mind of the child with borrowed knowledge, concepts & all types of formulas which really doesn’t help in having any control over the body-mind functioning required for success & happiness. By the time the child comes out of the university, he is so disassociated with his consciousness that he is pulled away from his true intrinsic nature making his life miserable. Our consciousness is virgin & pure & it will remain so. Whatsoever comes out of that consciousness will truly add value to the child’s career because that will be pure, authentic & signaled by the universe. The university education which focuses more on gaining the material riches will definitely lead to stress, anxiety & energy imbalances because it doesn’t focus on the inner development of the child. The search for truth is the search for one’s own self & once you know yourself you know all that you need to know. ‘Know thyself first’ should be the first real step in every individuals life. Education of the heart is heart of the education. Education of the heart connects you to the infinite energy which then opens new vistas in the career breakthrough.
