Free Meditation Class

“The ultimate aim of meditation is to establish our conscious union with God. We are all God´s children, but right now we do not have conscious oneness with God. Someone may believe in God, but this belief is not a reality in his life. He just believes in God because some saint or Yogi or spiritual Master has said there is a God or because he has read about God in spiritual books. But if we practise meditation, a day comes when we establish our conscious oneness with God. At that time, God gives us His infinite peace, infinite light and infinite bliss, and we grow into this infinite peace, light and bliss.”

Sri Chinmoy from the book: Meditation: Man-Perfection in God-Satisfaction

Join our free meditation classes in January and February! We will practice together very simple meditation techniques that help you to silence your thoughts and enter into Vastness and Peace.
