The timeless art of meditation has been practiced by saints and sages since ancient times to bring about the joyful state of self-realisation. In this consciousness a person is free from temporary worries, anxieties and concerns and is immersed in a higher spiritual happiness and inner peacefulness.
Through the practice of meditation a person can overcome anxiety and depression and experience an actual inner spiritual fulfilment or happiness. The secret to gaining the benefits is to practice it regularly. By starting your day with 15 minutes of meditation, you will find that your whole day flows more smoothly.

Gauranga breathing employs both the breath and meditation. It’s a wonderful method of calming the nervous system, regaining health and discovering real spiritual insights into the nature of the self, the nature of this world and the nature of love, peace and inner-happiness.
Japa Mala Meditation
Japa meditation is the chanting or repeating of sacred mantras using japa mala or meditation beads. It can be practiced while walking, sitting or lying and is a very relaxing form of meditation that will not only calm the mind, relax the body, increase focus and concentration, but will cleanse your spiritual consciousness and help you to understand your true nature.
Kirtan is the singing of ancient Vedic mantras, spiritually uplifting songs, prayers and the Sacred Names of the Supreme. Rather than being a type of performance, Kirtan is a journey of self-discovery. Weaving together melody, music and mantra with people responding to the words of the singer, clapping, swaying and sometimes dancing, Kirtan is simultaneously a meditative, exhilarating and fun activity.
