THE MEDITATION MARVEL: ADVANTAGES OF BEING AN EARLY BIRD

I have been practicing meditation for 25 years and teaching it for 10 years. When I started meditation, it was seen as a mystic practice reserved for monks and ascetics sitting high in the Himalayan, a practice done to achieve nothing less than self mastery and self-realization.

In the monastery where I grew up, all monks were masters of peace and relaxation. Everyone always had a smile on their face and everyone looked much younger than they really were.

There are three environments that we must learn to clean 1. Our mind - If our thoughts are impure we cannot reach the pinnacle of human existence. 2.

As I awoke from my meditation in Baidyanath holy temple, Mahadev I witnessed complete solitude, not a soul was in sight, well not human at least. After my mediation, I was pleasantly surprised to find a mother dog with her puppies before me. I looked at my watch to find what felt like a second was [...]

Today, as I was in my oft-visited orphanage to serve the treats to the children, for the first time, the sister there asked me for bedsheets.

WHY I MEDITATE AND SO SHOULD YOU

2018-04-27T06:38:02+00:00April 27th, 2018|Blog|

Meditation is a rage. Meditation is 'in'. Meditation is a trend. All successful recipes of success have inculcated meditation as an ingredient. I too meditate, being born in a lineage where meditation ran in our blood and everything that the external world is or is not capable of giving, we could create, going within. So today [...]
