IAM – Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique®

IAM is a simple combination of yoga, pranayama and meditation that takes just 20 minutes a day. It is a meditation technique for modern days.The technique is a synthesis of traditional, time-tested methods suited for the current mental conditions, time-constraints and needs of modern man. Amma’s disciples teach the technique, free of charge, in all parts of the world.

IAM Technique® is not only taught to Amma’s devotees, but also to organizations throughout the world, including corporations, education institutions and correctional facilities.In July 2007, MAM undertook the massive project of teaching IAM Technique® to India’s 2.5 million paramilitary personnel,in addition to teaching the technique in many business corporations, such as Infosys (one of the premier software companies of the world), BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited – a giant public sector undertaking Indian Telephone Industries), IIM (Indian Institute of Management – the premier management institute of the country). Students of various Universities have also been introduced to this technique.

Meditation is the art of mastering the mind. The way we perceive the world around us completely depends upon our mind. In our search for happiness, we essentially have two options—modify the entire world so that everything turns out exactly the way we want it or modify our mind so that we are able to be happy, content and peaceful, regardless of what happens in the external world. The former is obviously impossible. We have very little control over our external world. The only hope for happiness lies in controlling the inner world. Meditation is a key element in this process.

Amma says, “The remote control of our mind should rest firmly in the palm of our hand.” Imagine one with such mental control. Emotions, ideas and memories are at his beck and call. If anger comes, he can change the channel. The same with jealousy and greed. He can recall any past event, like reversing a DVD. If he wants ideas, he only need turn to the “idea channel” and a stream of creative ideas will flow forth. No more staring at the blank screen of writer’s block. Total and complete mental control—this is what IAM Meditation offers.

The mind is like a machine. But it is completely up to us to maintain that machine properly. Only then will we be able to get the maximum potential out of it. We should also know how to turn the machine off. This, sadly, has become a lost art, and the very reason we see so many people around us “blowing fuses.” IAM Meditation Technique is a daily mental maintenance system.

Through focusing on objects, sounds and sensations during meditation, our power of concentration increases. Observing our mental and vital functions, we gain awareness. Relaxing the mind removes stress. Expanding our concept of our self similarly expands our thinking in general, making us more creative.
