The trend of meditation has swept the world. None seem to realise that meditation requires specialised training and knowledge. The true spiritual path is a scientific and methodical process.


Action is the insignia of life. The law of life proclaims that none can remain without performing activity. 

Slow and Steady

An ill-prepared mind plunging into meditation could be harmful. You cannot force the mind to change suddenly. The mind has to be prepared for the final stage of meditation. Preparation, patience and perseverance are qualities a spiritual seeker should imbibe.

Clean Slate

Bhagavad Gita is the ancient and revered authority that enunciates the truth about yoga and meditation. Approach the study of the Gita with an open mind. Think for yourself.

Learn to control your restless mind and prepare yourself for meditation.
