If you analyze why you laugh when a joke is cracked, you will understand: A set of logically connected statements is first told to you. When you are clinging on to the logic that has been created, the punch line is delivered and your logic is shattered! At that moment when your logic is shattered, your thinking, your mind is also shattered and you are in a state of no-mind or satori. You are Buddha!
When you are in no-mind, you are in the present. When you laugh, you are in the present because when you laugh there can be no thoughts. When you are thoughtless, you are in the present. When you are with thoughts, you are either in the past or in the future.
Laughter is total and it can simply heal and transform you. It is the best and easily available medicine for humanity.

And this is a video of a laughing swami. Swami Nithyananda from Tiruvannamalai. The Mountain as a Man.
If you don't laugh while seeing this video, I will change the name of this blog from Mountain comma to Mountain fullstop.
