Meditation is an uninterrupted flow of concentration on the infinite. It is taught according to the Yogic tradition.
Meditation helps the practitioner bring the senses and mind within, and to stop the mind from wandering. It improves and helps to refine one’s perception and concentration, and to understand how our own mind and senses are the cause of all bondages and attachments.
Meditation helps to control stress and strain, it stops internal conflicts and confusions. Above all, it helps to understand the truth, and takes the practitioner to peace, happiness, and self-knowledge.
Group meditation is at 10 am every Sunday open to all, except for when there are weekend programmes or courses.
Satsangas are spiritual discourses, talks, concerning the nature of the Self or Absolute. They take their inspiration from the Yogic and Vedantic teaching traditions and enable us to hear and ponder upon these truths in a sattvic environment with the opportunity to put questions and get direct personal answers.
Regular attendance at satsangas enables us to deepen our knowledge of our own minds and its responses and to contemplate upon the universal truths contained in the scriptures. The study of these scriptures by reading alone will engender questions, interest and knowledge; but will not necessarily provide direct answers.
Hearing the teaching expounded in satsangas will also provide further insights and knowledge concerning the subject that we may not gain through our own reading and study. Thus, satsangas become a source of encouragement to study the texts and an opportunity to gain more knowledge. This knowledge gained in Satsangas will inspire us to practice Yoga and meditation more regularly; while the practice of Yoga and meditation will encourage us to attend satsangas. Thus, the practice and the study becomes self supporting and encouraging.
