The state of audasinya is not gloomy, sad or disheartened about life. It is not pessimistic in its temper but a exalted state of consciousness where one can maintain a constant state of indifference to all passing experiences and phenomenon in one’s life.
The screen which relays all its images is in this state. It has no acceptance or rejection of its projections. The sky is also in this state. The passing clouds do not colour it.
To achieve this jadam or inert state of shunya vichara, ones mind needs to be stilled. Only then, the zen takes over. How can one achieve this stilling? All saadhna endeavours and aims at this stilling as its goals. We can still when we experience the peak of intensity or teevrata. So, whatever helps you achieve that teevrata helps you move closer to your core silence.
Audasinya will blossom when the mind has submerged and only the neutral observership remains.
