  7. help me with eyes

    Guys, I need some suggestions regarding the positionof eyes during meditation I am very confused about eye position If I close my eyes during meditation , I feel very strong heaviness in my head and eyes all day long ( may be because I unconsciously forcefully shut my eyes forcefully ) I mean it's like I feel my eyes and head heavy and sleepy all day long But than I tried to do meditation with open eyes and this heaviness problem disappeared in 1-2 sessions But with open eyes , my eyes keep fluctuating from one position to another, sometimes I keep them on floor, sometimes at nose , sometimes in front I don't know just what to do with them, I keep changing the position because I feel like this position could be correct or that one Any advise ? If i choose to close them, what should i do so i dont get that heaviness (any exercise maybe or something else ) And if i choose to open them, where should i focus them, what should i do with them

  12. In india there is a kind of unwritten rule which says that you never tell anybody about your cultivation experiences otherwise you will loose them, your spiritual progress will get impeded Now i want to know, to what extant this rule applies ? And is there any written record of such warning in any spiritual text, be it buddhist or other Does this rule mean that no body should even know that you are cultivating If you see someone harboring wrong views of cultivation and you try to tell them what actually cutivation means, you explain them about real cultivation and spirituality does this also break this rule of secrecy because they will know that you are cultivating So you cant even talk to anybody about cultivation ? Does this just apply to sharing experiences or even talking about cultivation will break it ? And if a person breaks this rule, what he can do to remedy this ? What this rule actually is and to what extant this rule applies ? i would love to see some spiritual texts quotes on this Does this mean total and complete secrecy of cultuvation? I want to know about this rule completely because it has bothered me from quite some time, i also dont know which spiritual texts mention it What you are allowed to share and what you are not allowed to share ?

  14. Black and zen

    Actually someone told me that the energy of black is not good and he asks to not wear it, forget about using it as meditation seat He asks to wear and use red, because it is good energy wise Now when I read about zen monks who wear black and even use black meditation seats, it got me thinking Because I respect zen and it has produced many enlightened beings That got me thinking why zen use black zafus I think this black zafu is something which started with soto zen, i think the chan of China didn't use black zafus , but who knows maybe Chinese zen monks also used to have black zafus and zabutons
  15. Black and zen

    Hmm but what about zafus, why are they black ? Did Chinese chan monks also use black zafus and zabutons ? Is there any effect or significance of the color of the zafus or zabuton a practitioner use ?
