Vedic Meditation is unlike other forms of meditation. It gets to the depths of the mind very quickly to give the meditator deep rest, rejuvenation and relief from stress. Taught in the traditional manner of individual personal instruction, we retain its true essence and exact method of practice.
The Vedic Meditation technique is one whereby a mantra is used. The instruction is via the transition from teacher to student of a very specific mantra. (A mantra is a specific syllable or word, with a specific meaning in the ancient system). The mantra settles the mind into its source.
Vedic Meditation must be taught by a qualified teacher with the expertise to teach the technique correctly to ensure the meditation is being practiced in the right way. This cannot be learned from a book.
Vedic Meditation is a surprisingly simple and yet a highly effective technique. When practiced it easily calms the mind of its thoughts without effort.
We are all fully aware of how important it is to exercise and keep our bodies healthy but we often neglect our subtle nature, our mind. .
