The focus will be both fundamental and advanced. We cannot become adepts at practices deemed to be highly advanced, if we are not able to concentrate for extended periods, to actively practice contemplation, and to enter into stillness. We will work with sharpening our focused attention in our fundamental work with the breath. We will also continue working with various Shaghals, Mushahida contemplations, and effacements and tassawuri walks of illuminated souls.

imgres-2.jpg567636._UY200_.jpgOne of the doorways we will utilize are the Centering Exercises rendered by Paul Reps in Zen Flesh, Zen Bones. Hazrat Inayat Khan had told him of manuscripts that were available in Kashmir that were of the greatest value.

Reps went to Kashmir and met Lakshman Joo a Yogi who had translated the Siva text, the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra. Reps offered a version he thought appropriate to his times, de-emphasizing the tantric aspects. Other translations are now available including The Radiance Sutras by Lorin Roche. Wali Ali will use both the original translation by Joo and some of these newly expressed versions of what Roche calls "the 112 Gateways to the Yoga of Wonder and Delight" for meditative purposes in this series.
