Meditation is a practice that helps a
person to develop mentally and spiritually. There are many forms of meditation,
but the meditation taught by the Ananda Marga is based on the principle
"as you think so you become". In meditation one should
concentrate one's mind on a positive and uplifting thought. If one does this on
a regular basis it leads to a profound state of peace and harmony.
Our instructors, who have years of experience, will show you how to meditate
using techniques that will enable you to withdraw your mind from the
distractions of the "outside" world and concentrate them within.
Meditation quiets the central nervous system, slows the heart rate and lowers
pressure by as much as 20% and has a profound effect on physical health. In
addition the regular practice of meditation builds up a person's capacity to pay
attention and learn anything, making it the best form of mental exercise.
We offer group and individual instruction in meditation. As the student
progresses higher lessons are given. On every Sunday, collective meditation is held
at our center and we hold intensive meditation seminars on a regular basis. All
instruction in meditation is free of charge.
