The Purpose of Meditation

The ultimate goal of meditation or of yoga, is to allow the personal self to experience the greater Self, the Oneness which we can think of as Universal Divine Consciousness, Nature or ‘God’

An Inner Centre of Peace

As the pressures of the world increase and multiply , many people see meditation as a step toward a calmer life, and towards direct realisation of the wellspring of strength and peace within themselves.

We must not lose sight of the fact that this is an inner journey. For just as the ocean has quiet depths, untroubled by agitation on the surface, so has every human. In those depths — the true centre and source of all that we are — abide stillness, peace and beauty. And we can reach this inner centre.
