An integrated approach of yoga (which acts at different sheaths of existence)
is necessary for the holistic memory. A variety of yoga techniques are
available, which when practiced regularly, bring about the described changes in memory.
Techniques for highest memory development (Anandamaya Kosa)
Jnana or the wisdom of discrimination with an
understanding of the totally is the most important adjunct to memory development at
Anandamaya Kosa level. The highest memory development involves being able to retain
that wisdom, to maintain a continuous stream of awareness at all points of time
and under all situations, and to be in tune with creation. For the most elevated
the memory of Atma abounds to such an extent that they never loose aware ness
of that Ananda, a state of total expansiveness and blissful awareness, a state
of SILENCE within.
That is the highest or the most holistic memory
achievement. To the extent that such maters become embodied with bliss itself
(Anandamaya Kosa). A periodic dip into this oceanic memory of bliss is the enlivening
nectar of all our lives, even the most mundane, says the Taittirely Upanishad.
Memory development at Intellectual level (Vijnanamaya Kosa)
When the mind gets overwhelmed by light tejas (inner
light), then dreams are no longer seen. Then there is a surge of happiness.
At the level of intellect memory development involves
a process of feedback from the intellect with more and more comprehensive
understanding of nature, world, Creation and their associated laws. For
example, scientists enlarged their vision from classical to quantum mechanics in
the process of understanding. The memory of this knowledge changed the
earlier wisdom of Newton's laws of motion. Upanishadic wisdom with a knowledge base
of the whole creation will replace the memory of the knowledge of quantum
physics, to enlarge vision further. That is the memory of the Vijnanamaya Kosa.
The technique for memory development at this stage is
the Jnana yoga triplet Sravana-manana-nididyasana. Hearing (or reading) about
the higher and more comprehensive perspectives of the whole creation - analyzing
the same through logic with an open mind without prejudices, disbelief or
blind belief as a true scientists and - experimenting through examination,
intense search within finding the root of all thoughts are staying between two
thoughts. Or asking the question "who am I" this is the search of a scientist. The
result of this is a sudden opening members, an activation of the dormant
knowledge hidden within.
