Mind modulation – The Buddhist kind

Mind modulation has been there in subtle form in almost every religion, in every part of the world, and for ages. But, probably it is in India that one finds recorded forms of direct, explicit, and well thought of modulation techniques that are being practiced for thousands of years.

Mind modulation – Know before you Do

Once, someone asked me an interesting question. The question pertained to death rituals observed in various religious faiths. Each religion claims that its death ritual is the only one that guarantees the departed soul a ‘rest in peace’. Does that mean that the souls in other religions roam around restlessly? ;-)

Does soul exist? <---- Only the soul exists and nothing else!

The Upanishads declare that it was only the soul that existed in the very beginning. And this soul ‘became many’.

Does soul exist? <---- Of course it does.

The ancient Sänkhya philosophers adopted a purely dialectical approach to everything. They even went to the extent of rejecting the idea of God since,(according to them) the concept of God is not essential to explain the world as it exists. But they were very firm on the existence of soul.

Does soul exist? <---- Useless question to ask!

Buddhists, while they believe firmly in re-birth, at the same time insist that the soul does not exist – anatta* (no atta – no soul) as they declare!

Does soul exist? <---- There is no proof that it does

That is what a true scientist would say. He won’t say – “soul does not exist” since he does not have a proof for that either.
