Most people pray. Even atheists may pray sometimes, perhaps silently… or at least curse.
Because, to invoke a higher power in any way at all represents some form of prayer.
But are we praying right is a big question?
Yes, prayer also has a methodology.
Dr. Sathya Narayanan, a renowned psychologist from Beyond Consciousness Foundation clearly gives a solution.
Understanding what prayer is, helps us to engage more skilfully in this most essential spiritual practice with potentially trans-formative results!
Dr. Sathya Narayanan says that most people visit places of worship to find peace, but still many of them do not achieve it, because they don’t know how to pray.
Dr Sathya defines prayer as the programming done by an Individual for his own needs and desires.
“When a person goes to his place of worship loaded with worries and a confused state of mind, he will literally get no benefits in praying.” says Doctor.
According to doctor, praying to God, is not just dumping our desires and anxieties to the Almighty, rather it is building a connection with God.
Doctor also talks about focus and establishment of connection with God.
Doctor gives a method to pray, at the start of the prayer, we are supposed to feel grateful for all the blessings we have received from God.
“Gratitude is the most powerful blessing, which gives power and also gives the ability of power being heard faster ”, says Doctor.
Dr Sathya asks everyone to cultivate the habit of saying thanks to God at the start of the Prayer.
Doctor also teaches the method of connecting the “Chakras”, with God, once this is achieved,
Our prayer gets automatically responded.
