The Mind and Meditation


Where Mind Ends, Meditation Begins.

What is meditation? Is it a technique that can be practiced? Is it an effort of making the mind still? Is it something that the mind can achieve?
In life, whatever we do, we do through the mind and whatever we achieve, we achieve through the mind. The whole of life’s experience shows us that everything can be done by the mind – except meditation! Because meditation is not an achievement – it is already your nature. It is only to be recognized and remembered. Just a moment of turning in and it is right there, waiting for you to explore your true essence.
Experience the natural inner happiness and peace arising from the depths of you, without having to move to the mountains. Whether you are a beginner, have discontinued the practice, or simply want to take it to a higher level, this workshop is for you, where you will learn:

• The expanded states of consciousness and the eternal practice of meditation
• What meditation is and what meditation isn’t
• The inner journey towards absolute oneness with eternal bliss
• Unleashing the immense potential within
• Growing your intuitive faculty
• Mastering the mind by being in the moment
• Disengaging from everyday thoughts and feelings
• Letting go of negative thoughts and feelings towards oneself and others
• Dealing with stress, worry and anxiety in everyday life

"Why should I burn incense sticks? Why do you ring the bell so hard in the temple?” “How can you worship a living person as a Guru? Growing up in Cuttack, Odisha, Swami Yatidharmananda had a thousand questions like this about our culture, religion and spirituality. After some time as a programmer in the private sector, Swamiji moved to Rishikesh, where he joined the Divine Life Society. He became a personal attendant to its president, and also served as the order's digital archivist. Since 2012, Swami Yatidharmananda has served the global yoga and interfaith communities as a preceptor of the Chidananda Sevashram, which aims to promote worldwide spiritual and physical well-being through yoga, ayurveda, and the study of holy scriptures.
