This is the first time I have written a blog post using the tag “mazakhatri.” The word mazakhatri can be loosely interpreted to mean “to be calm,” but that’s hardly the most accurate definition. According to the dictionary, the word mazakhatri can mean “to be calm,” but to me it has always meant “to be calm/stoic.
The mazakhatri of mazakhatri.net is definitely calm. In fact, if you read the header of the blog you can see that there have been over 600 comments about it, and the posts have gotten over 4000 views.
I was thinking about this recently, and I realized that I used to think that mazakhatri meant to be calm to be calm to be calm. But now I’m starting to think that it should mean to be calmstoic to be calmstoic. In fact, if you google mazakhatri and stoic then you’ll find thousands of pages about stoic, including this one.
To get the point across, mazakhatri was the name of the ancient city where the ancient Indian philosophies of the Vedas and Upanishads were written. And to get a feeling for the kind of calm you would need to have while watching a TV show and trying to stay calm, think about the last time you watched a TV show and didn’t get very angry or very sad, because you were just watching a show that you were actually calm about.
Another of the many philosophies of the Vedas and Upanishads is called mazakhatri. To understand what that means, think of a person who has to sit through the hours of a TV show, but has to sit through the whole thing without being able to turn the TV off. The person has to sit through the whole thing calmly, but without being able to stop the TV from being on. You could call the person a mazakhatri.
Mazakhatri is a Sanskrit term that means “the calm mind.” It is related to the Sanskrit noun mazhaka, which means “calmness.” For the Vedic people, the mazakhatri was a state of mind that was achieved through contemplation, concentration, and meditation. This is why mazakhatri is mentioned in the Aitareya Brahmana (9.17.1) as the state of the soul.
Mazakhatri is a state of contemplation and meditation in which the mind is completely still, without thoughts. As a result, the person may have a very calm and still demeanor, but she will also be able to perform miracles with her mind. Such as making the sky glow blue.
The mazakhatri is also the state of a person who is in a state of meditative concentration. But because this state is not of a person that has been meditating, it is not considered as a state of self-awareness. However, that doesn’t mean it is not a state of mind. A person with mazakhatri can actually talk to the mind to have the mind talk back. This is sometimes referred to as the “thought-door” concept.
An example of the mazakhatri is the person who is being sent to an airport to kill someone. In such a situation, the mazakhatri person can convince the mind that they are the one who needs to kill the person. The person with mazakhatri can also look at their mind to see if this is true.
Mazakhatri is a state of mind, which is often discussed in the context of meditation. That said, it is also a state of being. The person with mazakhatri can actually speak to the mind to have the mind speak back or for the mind to say, “I accept your statement.” This is often referred to as the thought-door concept.
