Letter No 7
Most Honourable & Venerable Sir,
I thank you very much for the instructive help received. I have now overcome the “catch in the breath” and the “flash” and the breathing goes smoothly.
I shall evdeavour now to be more aware of “ happiness, lightness of body, joy and energy” as they come in meditation and reflect further on them.
There has been one more experience during meditation – I had reached a calm state when 3 bangs hit on the top of my head. These blows come from within the skull- I had felt these faintly earlier- with these bangs I seemed to get out of the rupa and to expand in all directions like air; and this time there was no connection, or attachment or feeling to the rupa. I felt I had become air and melted into the existing air. I also had certain physical symptoms which are better now. (1) A dull ache on the top of my head. (2) An unusual feeling at the back of the eyes as well as in the whole eye. (3) A lot of mucous gets dislodged from the upper palate ( at back of eyes and nose and finds its way into the throat.)
It seems a number of new occurrences are taking place in quick succession. If alright, I shall continue with joy.
I hope very much your Reverence is in good health. If there is anything I can do or send please may I know. It would make me very happy if I could be helpful in any way.
With every good wish,
Your grateful pupil
