Effortless Mind Meditation


After consistently practicing your meditation, Ajayan, I have crossed some of the hurdles of “resisting” then “trying” and “learning” and moved into more “effortlessness”… phew!  What comes is so delicate and lovely and brings with it such exquisite bliss and comfort. For that I am so, so very grateful for your guidance. That this stream of awareness, love, bliss waits patiently behind all of our daily silliness is such a miracle…  So thank you, Ajayan, for what you offer in your life. It is the most valuable gem!

I have been a student of Ajayan Borys for over two years and found his meditation techniques and personal instructions to be excellent. His upcoming Webinars will be an excellent opportunity for anyone who either wants to learn how to meditate or to deepen their current practice.

His recent book Effortless Mind is the best meditation book on the market. Easy to follow, with profound teachings, and impressive results. I have been meditating for 20 years and have read scores of books on the subject. Effortless Mind distills the wisdom of Ajayan Bory’s 40 year search for the essence of meditation in both America and India and puts it into a very readable and enjoyable manual for deep experiences of peace, silence, and light.

I look forward to participating in his new Webinars. Ajayan’s credentials are impeccable and his honesty and integrity inform everything that he does. Thanks, Ajayan, for writing Effortless Mind and for creating new Webinars for sharing your wisdom.

I took the Effortless Mind Meditation course from Ajayan and practice it daily. From my first instruction, I was amazed at the sense of well being and stillness I felt. I am so grateful for this program! I encourage anyone looking for a meditation practice to open the door to Pure Awareness through the Effortless Mind Meditation Course.

I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much I have been helped by meditating. I took your all day seminar Jan11th. Since then I have meditated daily and use the breathing exercises in the morning (when I am short on time since I start work at 0645) to help me start my day on the right foot. I am a critical care nurse and it has been a real stress reducer. Shifts that would have had me pulling my hair out after 13 hours, I can now accept with grace, knowing I did the best I could do.

I wanted to thank you again for the class last Saturday. It was incredibly helpful, and I deeply appreciate you sharing your wisdom with me. The meditation techniques you taught have made it more easy and enjoyable to cultivate my daily meditation practice. My meditations are consistently deeper than ever before as well. I plan on auditing the class again in a couple of months.

—Blake Poarch

The Effortless Mind™ meditation workshop was totally life changing in all aspects of living, thinking, and seeing. Some changes are so subtle that when one realizes the change has occurred there is simple amazement. This meditation has allowed me to ascend to a place of stillness and Being that is beyond words. I’ve been placed on a pinnacle ready to gently tumble into the next place of “Being” on my journey. Thank you for being there to lead and guide.

The techniques I received from Ajayan are perhaps the most blissful and useful of any I have experienced in over 25 years of seeking. When I practice them, they provide me with instant relief from tiredness, depression, irritability, and the like. More importantly, though, they truly awaken an experience of Ultimate Truth, which is indescribably exquisite, joyful, and simple.

At first I had a tendency to think “This will never work,” but was I wrong! After meditating, I feel so much energy filling my body that it’s actually hard not to be constantly smiling. There are no words to do justice to the bliss that these practices produce, they take one to a place so beautiful. This is truly where all meditation should have gone by now (given the years of practice.) It’s almost indescribable. And this degree of sophistication and elegance in transcendental matters is prevalent throughout any teaching Ajayan offers.

Ajayan is an authentic meditation and pranayama teacher from an established tradition, and has a deep understanding of the subject from years of personal experience. He teaches with a light sense of humor that puts you at ease. There’s none of the cultishness that surrounds many meditation teachers. As someone of Indian origin with a long standing meditation practice, I still found plenty to learn at Ajayan’s workshop

—Kris Shankar

I have spent a lot of time in the past few years trying to find something to improve my meditation, but Ajayan’s teaching has done more than any information that I could find. The first night after Ajayan’s personal instruction, I awoke about 3 a.m., only to find I had been meditating in my sleep in a state of bliss. A few nights later, I had an extraordinary dream in which I was showing friends how I could levitate. I took off and zoomed around the yard from about 2 to 6 feet high and then took off over a cliff; I was hundreds of feet up until finally zooming in for a perfect landing on the lawn. Lately I’ve had more and more very blissful experiences; I feel like I’m walking around town on air. After 25 years of daily meditation, since Ajayan’s instruction, my meditations are deeper and the positive results are lasting longer.

From my first meditation with Ajayan I experienced an ecstasy that is simply indescribable. This meditation is so sublimely natural and effortless. I never dreamed it could be like this. The words that came to my mind were, “Eureka! This is it! This is what I’ve been searching for!” Thank you!

—Marsha Holden

I had a truly enjoyable experience at Ajayan’s Effortless Mind meditation class. The all day class provided me with an excellent overview of the positive impacts of meditation and bridged that information with a series of thoughtful techniques that I could build into my daily routine. We practiced the techniques several times throughout the day which really put me on the path to being able to do them properly on my own. All in all a wonderful way to spend a day.

—Bruce Cleland

Thanks to meditation, I feel more creative, more alive. It’s great to experience this every day in simple things— like noticing that people look forward to having me come to the office. Yet if it weren’t for meditation, I know I wouldn’t feel that same spark.

As for Ajayan’s teaching, when I want something done right, I go to the best there is— the professional, the expert, the master. Ajayan Borys knows more about meditation than any teacher I’ve ever met. He’s a connoisseur of spiritual experience and a consummate teacher.

I took Ajayan’s meditation class in India, and it was a wonderful experience. Though I’ve been meditating for more than 25 years, the course was an amazing catalyst for deepening and increasing my experiences of bliss, clarity, and devotion in meditation and in my daily life. Also, Ajayan’s discussions on spiritual questions were unfailingly clear, uplifting, and inspirational.

I attended this last weekend’s class. I just wanted to thank you so much for sharing your warm heart and spirit. This was my first experience with meditation. I am at a point in life where I am looking for more. More peace, more calmness, more empathy for my spouse and children. I have been lost spiritually and I feel that I have found something with your teachings. With the first practice of meditation that we did in your course, I felt bliss equal to that of giving birth to my children. I saw the most beautiful golden rays of light in my brow chakra followed by the appearance of Buddha’s silhouette. I have never felt so much peace. I knew that this was meant to be. I can’t thank you enough for the experience that you have shared with me.

Ajayan’s meditation courses are excellent! Rarely does one encounter someone with the depth and breadth of experience that he possesses. Ajayan clearly honors and represents the tried and true Eastern methodologies of meditation, and shares them in an environment of reverence and respect. These methods have greatly enhanced my personal meditation experience and practice, and I highly recommend his classes to anyone desiring to enhance their spiritual progress.

I came to Ajayan after having paid a huge sum of money to one organization to learn to meditate. I got far more out of 1 afternoon with Ajayan. I loved his class! Now I know what meditation is.

The journey with the group to the Source of the Ganges was so enlightening for me…. a great experience, the best experience for personal growth I’ve ever had.

Ajayan’s teachings bring us an experience of the unity of the entire spectrum of consciousness, and then take us beyond even this experience, to that which we didn’t know we always knew.

I am most thankful for Ajayan’s meditation class. Though I’ve meditated for years, he answered so simply all my questions. I loved it! It was great!

Ajayan’s class was wonderful! He is so knowledgeable and open, and the various techniques he incorporates makes meditation easy.

Ajayan is an excellent model of what he teaches: light, energetic, inspiring, and keenly aware.

Thank you for the wonderful meditation class. I’ve never been so relaxed and content after one single day of doing anything!

—Frances Lorentz

Thank you so much for the experience of our last retreat. The meditation cleansed my soul and mind and gave me a new meaning of relaxing and letting go…..

—Nelly Some

I spent 5 days with Ajayan to increase my creativity, strengthen my health constitution, and renew the relationship to my wife. His teachings and practices satisfied my expectations in all areas. And I received even more. Be surprised! I am thankful for having met this excellent and charismatic teacher.

I met Ajayan and two of his students miraculously in Rishikesh, India, at a time when I was dying to find long-lasting peace of mind. They were about to start the ‘Meditation/Nature Retreat at the Source of the Ganga— September 2004’, so I decided to join them. It was the beginning of an inner journey that has changed my life forever.

Ajayan has such a gentle way and mastery of teaching, that it was extremely easy to learn and experience immediate fruits. From the first day of practice, something very powerful started to unfold inside myself, and from the first time in my life I started to be able to look inside my soul and feel inner Peace.

Each day I feel the practice has been an incredible blessing, an experience of bliss that is making my life more wonderful day by day. I cannot but be immensely grateful to God and Ajayan for this priceless present.

Before my mom left for India, she was very anxious. She had not visited for 20 years and last time she visited, she had her very 1st asthma attack and had trouble breathing. This memory haunted her and she had a fear of going back to her birthplace. My mom could not sleep at night, started to lose her appetite and was very anxious. However, she had a new technique of breathing practices she learned with Ajayan and her personal mantra given to her by Ajayan. This was her resource that she used to tackle her anxiety.

Well, she conquered her fear and anxiety, found the strength and faith, packed her suitcase and left to India with my brother. As soon as she landed in China for a layover, she fell asleep for 8 hours and was relaxed! I spoke to her just a few days ago, and she continues to use her personal mantra and does a few of the breathing techniques. She is really happy and relaxed. This is the 1st time ever that I know she has been consistent with a mantra and breathing practice! Thank you Ajayan!

For me, I feel blessed to have met Ajayan. I went on a wonderful journey to India and meditated in the Himalayas with him. There was a ‘purification’ process that began and continued a healing process in my body and life. I believe the energy of meditating in a group and retreat with Ajayan weaved a path of openness and connection to others and the universe. I use the protection meditation and heart opening practice to heal myself and send love to my family and all beings. Thank you Ajayan for all the work you do to spread love and peace in our world! You are an amazing being!

I learned more effective meditation techniques at Ajayan’s weekend retreat than months of learning with other teachers and methods. If you’re serious about improving the quality of your life, learn from the best to be the best possible you.

—Susie A.

Since the retreat I’ve been amazed at the energy I feel. It has completely up-leveled my energy, my joy, and a sense of overall well-being and lightness. What an unexpected gift!

—Jyoti Paramjyoti

The Monday morning after the retreat, I felt so calm while doing some activity (such as driving).  I normally feel this calmness during a good meditation, but never felt this during activity. It felt really good. Since the retreat I’ve felt more mental clarity; I’m transcending almost everyday with the personal mantra (this never happened before); and I feel much more motivated towards my spiritual development. I am SO glad I attended the retreat. Thank you for doing it!

—Chenthil Kumar

I would like to express my gratitude to Ajayan for hosting a awesome retreat.  I gained so much more than I had expected from the experience, and loved meeting and getting to everyone there!  It is so much fun to come together with like minded souls and share an experience like this retreat. I hope to return for another retreat soon. Thank you!

—Melissa Guise

Ajayan is a true yogi and his teachings and coursework are a testament and insight into his practices and realizations in action; an unveiling into the hidden works of energy, body, and mind on a path to liberating from it all.  This training is advanced, technical, and most importantly effective and skillful, and builds from other trainings that he offers. Even though the training was online, using Zoom, Ajayan’s experience, delivery, enthusiasm to share, boiling the ocean down to precise explanations made the experience attractive, engaging, approachable, and rewarding.  I will take this training, and others from him again.

—Raj Patra, Yoga Teacher, Portland, OR

I just want to say Thank You for creating and offering the Siddhis Course! Since starting the class my life feels so creative and directed. Intuition feels honed and clear with many delightful surprises showing up! I am relaxing into a new level of trust with the unfolding of life. What you have taught here feels like it has the potential to align us with such potent possibilities for our lives and our dear world. I am so grateful Ajayan.
