It was so easy for me to meditate when I lived with my Baba. He led the meditations every day. I didn’t want to miss it! And my experience was so much deeper than when I was meditating on my own.
This is why I created the Meditation Club, to support your daily meditations. The single most important yogic practice is meditation. It’s so important that all the other practices exist specifically to improve your meditation.
* The poses make you able to sit.
* Breathing practices quiet your mind, as does chanting, which combines breathing with mantras.
* Sutra study helps you understand your meditation experience, even to navigate effectively in the inner expanse.
I was so fortunate to have years of living and studying with my Guru. The best was sitting in silence with him. It opened up my inner access to dimensions I could never have imagined.
Daily meditation was one of the reasons I opened Svaroopa® Vidya Ashram. I have been meditating with the Ashram residents daily for over ten years. I began planning it as an online Meditation Club in 2019. Zoom and the pandemic empowered me to create that access for you.
It’s delightful and amazing to see this Divine energy flowing through the internet – amazing and not surprising at all. For it is the gift my Guru gave me that makes it all work, the gift of the ancient sages of India.
The single most important thing I do every day is meditate with you. Every day.
Thank you Gurudevi for sharing your experience with Baba and passing it along to us. The Meditation Club has been an enormous help to me in my commitment to daily meditation. Sitting with my Sat Guru and fellow meditators is a rare gift and a privilege, one I do not take lightly.
With love and gratitude, Shanti
