I have spent the past couple of years collecting and devising ways to maintain peace of mind under adversity. According to several ancient Greek and Eastern philosophical traditions, the sage is able to maintain peace of mind while being physically tortured. However, I am unaware of any specific methods by which this can be accomplished. Are any of you aware of any such methods? Thank you for your time.
Peace of Mind comes when you no longer identify with the body, ie as a personal self. To gain this you really need to have had at least a fleeting enlightenment experience.
