No price is too great to pay for inner peace. Peace is the harmonious control of life. It is vibrant with life-energy. It is a power that easily transcends all our worldly knowledge. Yet it is not separate from our earthly existence. If we open the right avenues within, this peace can be felt here and now.

—Sri Chinmoy, from the book 'Yoga and the Spiritual Life'

Irish Times: 30 people making life better

Sadanand, one of our meditation class givers, got a nice mention in the Irish Times as one of 30 people making life better. It’s a very nice compliment and one we hope we can continue to live up to in the years ahead. In the past 15 years, over 3000 people have attended our free meditation classes in Dublin.

Audio meditation exercises you can use

These are some nice meditation exercises based on some of the techniques that our teacher Sri Chinmoy taught us. This particular exercise is given by Kaivalya Torpy from London. This is another nice exercise given by members of our meditation centre in Christchurch, New Zealand.

Why meditate?

To ease stress, we often become involved in a whole manner of mindless activities, many of which can only provide us with temporary relief. The stress continues. Sooner or later we are consulting doctors and therapists of one kind or another in the hope of ridding ourselves of the stress and its related issues – anxiety, anger and depression. There are an extraordinary amount of therapies advertised all over the city promising to deliver us from stress, depression, low self-esteem and so forth. Meditation, on the other hand, does not… read more »

What are the benefits of meditation?

Stresses and challenges in my life, coupled with curiosity, interest and longing led me to meditation classes held in the Dublin Sri Chinmoy Centre. I am a working mother with two teenage children and had heard and read of meditation, but misunderstood it to be something eastern and mythical – outside the realms of suburbia.  My introduction and subsequent classes disproved my thinking; meditation proved greatly beneficial and continues to be so; proving to me that meditation is not solely the domain of the eastern world religions or of mystic… read more »

Meditation exercise 2: Dynamic concentration

Sri Chinmoy advised people who were beginning meditation to first develop their power of concentration, in order to clear the mind of thoughts. Here we present two common meditation exercises, on using a candle and one using a flower. Candle exercise: Sit a few feet from a candle and concentrate on a single point in the flame. Keep your attention focused there without looking around. Do not worry about how well you are doing. You can use a black dot on a white background instead of the candle. Concentrate on… read more »
