He phoned the education minister, who said, “That appointment order is signed by me. You don’t have to hesitate, give him the appointment!”
There are hundreds of psychoanalysts, psychologists, therapists, believers in other different schools of psychology, who have been here under me to learn meditation – because psychology itself has come to understand that it is incomplete. Without attaining a silent mind, all that you can do is analyze dreams. And analyzing dreams is not going to give you the essential being of the person.
Right now there are dozens of psychoanalysts, therapists present in this meeting – they have come from far away, well educated, trained, certified to practice psychoanalysis. But psychoanalysis itself is dying, because it has not cured a single person in the whole world. Twenty years of psychoanalysis…
Millions of dollars are being paid – because psychoanalysis is the most costly profession. But even they cannot claim that they have psychoanalyzed a single person completely. The whole effort of psychoanalysis is futile. They are simply scratching on the surface of the mind, looking into dreams.
Psychology does not believe in the soul of man. Psychology believes that mind is a by-product of the body, and the people who have not even inquired beyond the mind into the soul of man are making statements which are absolute lies. They have not inquired. The whole East has been concerned not with the mind, but with something beyond the mind.
Now they are becoming aware that threshing the mind for years you gain nothing. There must be something more, otherwise psychoanalysis and all other different schools of psychology are going to die. They are already dying.
One of the greatest psychiatrists of America, Dr. Weiss, for many years was thinking whether to say it or not – because it will create an uproar in the whole psychological movement around the world. He has been watching for years and seeing that psychoanalysis does not work. Unless something spiritual is added to it, it is on its deathbed.
But just now he gathered courage and wrote a book, Many Lives, Many Masters, and declared that psychoanalysis and all its different schools are in their last death throes. He has shocked the whole psychological movement around the world.
He is a graduate of Yale University and now one of the most respected American psychoanalysts – a psychiatrist, psycho-pharmacologist, writer of many books. A lifelong search has ended in the declaration that psychology is not enough.
The East has been saying this for almost ten thousand years. For what reasons was psychology not born in the East?
