To Sri Avinash, meditation and selfless service are like the two wings of a bird that will take us to the goal of permanent happiness.
He teaches that the mind is the cause of all disturbances and unrest, so controlling the mind is essential to peace, happiness and spiritual advancement. He emphasises the importance of regular and consistent meditation to quiet the mind, increase tranquility and build inner strength. When a seeker’s practice is successful, the feelings of happiness and inner fulfillment naturally arise.
According to Master Sri Avinash, the aim of meditation is to be fully aware of the present moment. When the seeker’s awareness is in the present moment, and they are fully aware of that, this state is known as satori. Satori is a temporary state of enlightenment and it is not possible for emotional suffering and disturbance to occur during that state. Furthermore, having a taste of this creates a critical benchmark that will guide the seeker’s future practice.
The second fundamental teaching of Sri Avinash is selfless service. This practice is most dear to him because of its power to open the seeker’s own heart and others’ hearts at the same time. This process awakens love in the seeker and dissolves their ego over time, eventually leading to the remembrance of their divine nature.
Irrespective of what method of spiritual practice a person chooses, Sri Avinash teaches that with effort and grace, together with the personal guidance of a Self-realised Master, the goal of enlightenment can definitely be attained.
