Integrated Amrita Meditation (IAM) Technique® is a simple combination of yoga, pranayama and meditation that takes just 20 minutes a day. The technique is a synthesis of traditional, time-tested methods suited for the current mental conditions, time-constraints and needs of modern man.
Take up the Remote Control of Your Mind
Amma, who synthesized IAM Technique, says, "The remote control of our mind should rest firmly in the palm of our hand." Meditation is the art of mastering the mind.
A Meditation Technique for Modern Needs
The way we perceive the world around us completely depends upon our mind. In our search for happiness, we essentially have two options — modify the entire world so that everything turns out exactly the way we want it or modify our mind so that we are able to be happy, content and peaceful, regardless of what happens in the external world. The former is obviously impossible. We have very little control over our external world. The only hope for happiness lies in controlling the inner world. Meditation is a key element in this process.
Daily Mental Maintenance
The mind is like a machine. But it is completely up to us to maintain that machine properly. Only then will we be able to get the maximum potential out of it. We should also know how to turn the machine off. This, sadly, has become a lost art, and the very reason we see so many people around us "blowing fuses". IAM Technique is a daily mental maintenance system. Through focusing on objects, sounds and sensations during meditation, our power of concentration increases. Observing our mental and vital functions, we gain awareness. Relaxing the mind removes stress. Expanding our concept of our self similarly expands our thinking in general, making us more creative.
