PUNE, India (RNS) I had no idea whether I was ready for the Osho International Meditation Resort. But chanting a name other than the divine ones I believe in felt wrong.

    Chhaya,
    The above suggests that you have ‘Discovered’ that sacred place in you ===> called SOUL. You seem to be Intuitive, like your Grandfather. Staying in touch with it through out the day will definitely reduce your stress/anxiety ===> which are high emotions whereas Meditation lowers the intensity of such emotions and thereby, allows you to see the reality for what it is ===> that’s called being in the “PRESENT, NOW ==> where SOUL resides” rather than past or future, where the Ego rather be and takes you there.
