Books and music on meditation


Sri Chinmoy asked us to offer our meditation classes free of charge, out of a conviction that inner peace is the birthright of everyone. So we definitely don’t expect anyone to buy anything.

However, we have used the following books and CDs for inspiration in our classes for many years – you might find them useful in getting your meditation practice up and going, or improving your existing practise.
