Meditation is a continual concentration of thought on one idea. With regular practice, you will develop cheerfulness and inner calmness. If you don't like the word meditation, consider yourself to be practicing stress reduction methods.

One executive who wouldn't be caught meditating, began to practice "stress reduction."  In time he began to experience feelings that he could only describe as holy, or sacred. Now he rises early in the morning for the most important part of the day, meditation.

We offer quite a few books on the subject. The write-ups will help you decided if the book is suitable for a beginner or the experienced meditator.

Keep in mind that there is no single method to practice. It depends on your nature and where you are spiritually. For guidance, we suggest a competent teacher. Click on the link for our USA Centers where instruction is available at no charge. Or click for foreign centers outside India.
