The Path of the Heart

"When we meditate, what we actually do is enter into a vacant, calm, still, silent mind. We go deep within and approach our true existence, which is our soul. When we live in the soul, we feel that we are actually meditating spontaneously"

- Sri Chinmoy

  • Our meditation path is based on the teachings of meditation teacher Sri Chinmoy.
  • This path of meditation shares similarities with many other types of meditation. Our main goal is to silence the mind.
  • However, many of our exercises involve meditating in the sp[iritual heart.
  • For more information you can look at Meditation articles by Sri Chinmoy.
