The civil war in Srilanka toppled my life. I lost my eldest son, my father and my brother in law within four months.I was chased out of my home and I fled from Srilanka and took my family to India.
I settled my wife and three children in India and went back to the northern most part of Srilanka to continue with my government job. I was living in a small village.I knew during the peak days of the war innocent people were killed and their bodies were being burned and buried without any religious rights. The whole village was haunted, but I felt I had to stay, for the money I made at my job was providing for my family's needs.
People in the village were talking about how there were ghosts everywhere from those who had been murdered in the war. They were frightened to come out of their homes at night. Everyone was frightened of the war, of so many loved ones lost, of the chance that they might be next. I was frightened also.
At this juncture I remembered a book I had read on Hindu Meditation years before. I started practicing Yoga exercises, breathing exercises and Hindu Meditation. While meditating I used the "Om" mantra chanting word.I sat in lotus posture and chanted the "Om" repeatedly. At the same time I would try to uplift my spiritual power along the chakra centers in my body.
I started at the bottom with the root chakra, from a spot a little above my anus, and then to the sacral chakra which lies between the navel spot and the first spot, then to the navel spot, then to the heart chakra, then to the neck center, then to the center behind nose and finally to the top of the head.
While chanting "Om",I gradually came down from seventh spot to the first spot and repeated this several times in the early morning,between 5 AM and 6 AM and in the evening between 6 PM and 7 PM. I was very dedicated. It was easy to immerse myself in the meditation with the war going on around me. I didn't want to be where I was and the meditating was lifting me away from it for at least a few hours a day. For the first month I didn't have any spiritual energy healing experiences, but then things began to change.
I started feeling some agitation at my forehead, in between my two eyebrows. That feeling was there day and night. I started feeling untold happiness filling in my mind. I was fearless. While most of the people in the village were scared to come out of their homes at night,I was roaming even in the night without fear.I felt the village and surrounding areas were filled with joy and light.
That was the hardest time in all of my life, and for me, that book on Hindu Meditation that I had read when I was nineteen helped me get through the tragedy of life in Northern Srilanka during those times.
Thank you for reading my story.
