I am submitting the report for the Manasarovar
programme held on 29th sept to 1st october 2006.
Felt very calm, fresh and lighter
Felt no disturbance and also felt lighter and fresh
Felt a little restless and then by around 7 PM felt
good after doing the cleaning session.
My major thoughts during the day was about my
attachments to my parents and also a certain
homesickness as I developed headache during the
evening and felt the need to be at home. I was given
medicine and I felt better the next day.
Morning felt better that the headache had subsided
and during meditation had thoughts about office work
and felt a little disturbed.
Contemplating on my condition and trying to ignore
the thoughts which were bombarding me and the
thought patterns were mostly related to my office
and my own notions about what is in the future for
me. There were some thoughts about my own
interactions with my colleagues and how I had
reacted to certain situations and also how my ego
was involved. Felt that a determined effort was
required not to react to such situations and be
balanced under all circumstances.
Felt lighter after cleaning and I was oriented to
The last day of the program. I went to meditate at
the place where there was the beautiful view of the
mountains and the atmosphere there was very calm and

events which lay buried for more than 15 years and I
was really surprised that I had such thoughts which
I had not contemplated before. Sensuous thoughts
were also present and I also felt ashamed that I was
having such thoughts in such a holy and serene
The intensity of the thoughts had decreased to a
considerable extent and I was also experiencing
blankness for some time.
Summary for all 3 days:
On the very first day I had problem adjusting to the
food which was primarily of fresh fruits and
vegetables and because of which I had developed a
headache and which was mildly there on all the three
days and I was able to accustom myself to the
routine from the second day onwards. We were allowed
to do whatever we liked to do and there were no
instructions. The mood that prevailed was very free
and I felt very happy and liked the program very
much and would like to attend the program again
which I have been immensely benefited. It is
definitely a must for all aspirants as it is an
opportunity to understand the value of "silence".
Arrangements with regard to food, sleep, bath and
also with regard to the meditational aspects have
I am grateful to Imperience for allowing me to
participate in this program.
