Why is it different?
There are various meditation styles and techniques that can be learned today. Some require focus on an object such as a candle, or your breath or imagining a peaceful scene such as a beach. Some even require you to forcefully blank thoughts from your mind.
So what is different about Vedic Meditation?
Vedic Meditation is an effortless technique that allows the mind to calmly return to its original source each day, the source of thought. We don't attempt to control our minds or concentrate in any way. When we transcend we settle into such a peaceful state that this peace and happiness remains with us throughout the day.
Stress and strain starts to lose its grip and a rejuvenated sense of self and a happier and calmer disposition arises.
Individuals who perhaps never thought a stress and anxiety free life of consistent peace was possible in a world of apparent challenge and change. Many westerners became advocates of the technique. The Beatles practiced Vedic Meditation to develop their knowledge and creativity. This amazing teaching is now available for everyone to learn.
