Deeply Listening – The Key to Communication

Guru Nanak's Jap-ji has four stanzas or paurees, 8 – 11, describing the benefits of what it means to “deeply listen”. They are known as the Sunni-ai verses. When we practice Sunni-ai, we are still. The answers to our deepest questions are revealed within us. It is an act of applied conciousness and alertness. Many believe that these 4 paurees hold the key to resolving all communication problems within ourselves or with others.

English Translation:

The Book Of Wisdom

20130809-204142.jpg
I very seldom read books cover to cover. I’m good for a couple of chapters or skimming through the highpoints. This book however, is one of the most provocative I have had the pleasure of reading. Almost every sentence is loaded with wisdom and truth. Not one word wasted.
The first chapter provides analysis of Atisha’s sutras:
First learn the preliminaries.
Think that all phenomena are like dreams.
Examine the nature of unborn awareness.
Let even the remedy itself go free on its own.
Settle in the nature of basic cognition, the essence.
Between sessions, consider phenomena as phantoms.
Train in joining, sending and taking together.
Do this by riding the breath.
Three objects, three poisons, three bases of virtue.
Train with phrases in every mode of behavior.

The first preliminary is: truth is.
The second is: mind is the only barrier.

“Conquer the mind and conquer your world.” This sentence is from the 28th pauri of Japji by Guru Nanak. It embodies the same principle. As human beings we intrinsically know the truth. Living and connecting with it drops the ego and moves you to your infinity.

“Think all phenomena are dreams.” For me, these 5 words are profound in their meaning. They elegantly illustrate the true nature of sense phenomena.

Osho takes you into the heart of these sutras in a breathtaking manner. It is a guidebook for enlightenment.
