Meditation is a word that’s thrown around loosely these days. It’s come to mean practically any technique employed to silence and calm the harried modern mind. But the ancient and experienced form of meditation practiced in the east has a much deeper and more sublime purpose. Although it easily soothes the turbulent mind, it also awakens those who chant it to their original, joyful spiritual nature and consciousness, imparting a genuine sense of pleasure unavailable by any other means.
The ancient yoga texts state that such an awakening process is desperately needed because everyone in this world is in a sleeping, dreamlike condition. We have forgotten our original, spiritual identity, accepting instead a temporary material body composed of physical elements as our real self.
Let us get together this evening and awaken to our original and spiritual nature. Accompanying an interactive presentation would be delicious dinner and musical meditations. Tap your feet if you like, clap your hands if it makes you smile – it’s an evening to remember and enjoy.
