View Full Version : Transcendental Meditation for our team?

Well, after Sehwag scored the fastest 300 he attributed his secret to TM (as did Sreesanth). I personally took a Quantum Method meditation program (not that I am touting it as the best course by any means) but how about putting the whole team in some sort of meditative bootcamp? Will that yield any result? (Heck even Laker's coach Phil Jackson experiments his team with this sorta things from time to time).

Fun facts for you fellas: psychologists found that when the Zen archers hits the target their brain wave drops down to theta wave, the same frequency that is attributed to creativity.

Seriously, meditation has enabled masters of martial arts to perform deeds that can only be deemed as supernatural. I am sure our team can use this accessory tool in their arsenal to bring a change in their game.

After all, the chaotic game that we display is often a reflection of our chaotic soul.

God bless.

I don't know whether its Transcendental Meditation or not but looks like our own Tendu I mean Ash is taking some kind of Mind and body relaxation Yoga Meditation... atleast thats what looks like to me as an outsider.

I do swissshes!! Nothing but the net. I love that sound. As much as I like the zen master, I prefer bet'er bari and boot'er kick. He had two of the best athlete ever to play any sports. When tri-angle don't work just give the ball and move away. They'll take over. We don't have that luxury.

Sanath jayasuriya, who practices budism by faith attributed his resurgent as a dashing opening batsman, and changed the way cricket is played ever since, to meditation. Before that he was in the team purely as a bowler and batted as a tail-ender

I also remember reading an interview of kallis sometime ago where he said that he lost several people close to him (parents and girlfriend, but not sure) in a very short period of time; and how meditation helped him get his life back in track and cope with his loss.

Maybe there is something to it.

It's interesting you put that abt Jayasuriya because after seeing his effortless performance in IPL ossified my belief that contrary to the popular notion that people's talent atrophies with age, a master can always surpass himself and grow better with time like a fine bottle of wine. Lol I am always debating this with my dad who adheres to the opposing viewpoint but now I know just like Japanese martial artists enter a spiritual realm as they grow older nearing death (for instance Morihei Ueshiba founder of Aikido who could dodge bullets from guns), there is always room for further growth and maturity (to allude to Picasso for instance who was creative if not better in his 80s).

I think the more important question for me is that, will Morihei Ueshiba be able to dodge a 45 magnum from a range of 2 cm?

Excuse my ignorance, but as it happens; I usually take outlandish claims with a whole dash skepticism.

I believe that the only person who can r-e-a-l-l-y dodge bullets is neo; everyone else is just being pretentious.

To dodging bullets, *raising beer*

okay i dont want to spur any misunderstanding but even muslims have been doing meditation for ages whether it be sufi saints or other piir. in fact, didnt our own prophet perform meditation in the cave? so i respectfully dissent with you on the fact that meditation is a blasphemous activity that is not in accordance with islamic faith. after all if oyu boil it down to the core meditation is nothing but pure concentration....

ummm....no. i am not from india. what part of california are you from? i live in socal.

i dont want to start religious debate but mainstream muslims who understand islam do not consider sufis or pir mureeds to be true muslims. they are distracted by pagan ways. also we are strictly commanded to not imitate the idol worshippers. by choosing a idol worship gods name you are on the wrong path, brother. just telling you because it is my duty.

i am also from socal. =)

I don't care about meditation. I personally think that to succeed, one must have a sound and confident dependence on Allah.

Now talking about about this dependence, this should neither be showy like the PAK players nor it should be thought as a substitution of hard work. One needs to work as hard as possible. He should pray 5 times and try his best to say the prayer as perfectly as possible. Then before the match, he needs to pray two rakah before Allah, and recite Sura Yaseen. He will then definitely be able to come to the field with a confident mind. I have no doubt that if they follow this recipe, they will succeed.

The Bangladesh captain's focus is on how he would manage to stay in the wicket as much as possible. And to achieve the target he has been trying to take assistance from all corners.
In addition to the 'team rules' and 'process' the right-hander himself completed a four-day meditation programme yesterday. And that was the reason he did not turn out at the Tigers' first practice session for the coming Asia Cup to begin in the last week of this month in Pakistan.

"This idea came from my elder brother and he has encouraged me to attend a four-day meditation programe conducted by Shahid Al Bukhari. I had almost ten hours sessions everyday," informed Ashraful.

That's not nice.

Only if you claim tobe a Muslim and don't follow. that's what Allah does to bring you back to the right path.

If you r a declared non muslim and act against Allah, you will keep on having success after success in this world, that's what Allah does to finally make you unsuccessful.

Why do people go to Fakir for not having children? We all know how it has to be.

Ash is trying all Tukka after he failed, doing everything, konta laigya jaye ke jane. :)

Nothing will work except for work hard and pray.

Yoga has been practiced by the Australian players for awhile now and it wouldn't surprise me if Ash is taking it up on the advice of JS. Also, I doubt Ash can meditate for 10 hours. It cannot that easy for a novice, can it? I frankly don't care what he does as long as it helps him make some runs every match.

Cricket itself is like a religion in the sense that to be a good "cricketer" you have to practice the skills "religiously". Praying 5 times should not really take too much time away from Ash so he should pray if he doesn't already. Do any of the indian batsmen Tendulkar, Ganguly, Laxman, Dravid, Yuraj, etc do yoga? I bet none of them do, they just know how to concentrate.

Don't know if he practices yoga but in an interview during the tour of Australia a reporter tackled his issues with Symmonds, and the video showed that Sreesanth has a picture of Andrew Symmonds in his room. The reason is bizzare but he explained that Andrew Symmonds is his favourite cricketer. Is it me or do you guys detect a case of "keeping your friends close and enemies (or monkey) even closer". Haha.

i dont know all that about meditation.. but i sinserely believe that if a player works hard.. tries his best.. gives it his full effort.. prays 5 times a day and leaves the rest to Allah with firm believe in Him.. i think anything is possible and any player can be successful..
