Why Meditate

Vedic Meditation is one of the most effective antidotes to the stress and tension that is so prevalent in our lives today.
It is a way to boost our health, mental aptitude and our level of happiness. It enlivens us, it opens our awareness and creativity, and gives us the opportunity to tap into the infinite reservoir of energy and intelligence that is within us. Meditating daily produces immediate and cumulative benefits. It is easy yet profound.

Vedic Meditation is an effortless eyes-closed technique practiced sitting easily, twice daily for 20 minutes. It uses a simple and ancient way to quiet the mind and settle the physiology, leading to deep levels of rest. It differs from other forms of meditation that require concentration or mental training.

Once these levels of deep rest are attained, stress naturally leaves the body and we experience a quietness, a supreme inner contentedness or Bliss, and we are restored and rested.

When we practice Vedic Meditation, not only are we resting the body and releasing layers of stress, we are also expanding our ability to adapt to the needs around us.

People come to learn Vedic Meditation to release stress, relieve anxiety, improve health, increase cognitive ability, improve relationships and much more. The benefits are numerous.

Origins

Vedic Meditation is one of the oldest, most effortless and natural meditation practices. The word “Vedic” comes from the Sanskrit word “Veda,” meaning knowledge. The Veda is a body of knowledge originating in India over 5000 years ago inspired by the principal human desire to understand human consciousness and master the laws of nature. It is the umbrella body of knowledge that gave us yoga, Ayurveda and this meditation. Vedic Meditation is the crown jewel of the Veda, and has been passed on through an unbroken line of Vedic Master teachers over thousands of years, maintaining the purity of this meditation, and how it is taught, to this day.

This technique was developed and designed for everyday people with busy lives, jobs and families. It has been practiced by such “householders” for thousands of years.
