This map called Shum, this rare language, can guide seekers into their mind to find contentment that exists within everyone. Very few people use Shum because it has been taught exclusively to monks.

The meditation that was taught to Rajan is highly effective. It helps one define a meditation goal, lay out a path to it and create a sustainable practice that eventually brings forth insights and spiritual unfoldment. The system teaches you to concentrate your energy towards creating what you want in life and directing it as well. Meditation, along with self-study, is the tool to unlock your greatest potential.
