Inner stability to face life’s pressures

Meditation helps to bring a steadiness into life. This allows anyone to deal more effectively with daily events, without being unduly pushed from one place to another.  Remaining at a point of stillness and equilibrium enables us to respond to the world. It creates space for thought, which relieves the stresses, the inevitable pressures and occasional difficulties.

Inner peace to meet life’s challenges

Meditation leads to inner peace. It is a peace which is sorely needed in the wider world today, where there can tensions be within individuals, families, and nations. Meditation is far from a case of withdrawing from the world; it is a way to engage more fully with it. It is essentially practical. It helps a person to be more capable – to fully appreciation their talents and abilities and to deploy them fully and more creatively.

The school & meditation

Students following the Practical Philosophy course beyond the Introductory Course can choose to take up meditation in their second year (or earlier if required) The School received the meditation practice through the instruction and guidance of the head of the Advaita Tradition in Northern India, the then Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math. The School’s approach from the beginning has been to make meditation available to anyone seeking freedom, fullness of life or a deeper understanding of themselves. Click here to enrol

Quotes on meditation

“Unless one has rest in love and happiness, one cannot survive, just as the body cannot survive without sleep. Meditation is to provide rest, to take people to blissful rest with the Self, so that they may have new and fresh mornings of life. By going into meditation, one recharges oneself with finer energy and comes out with extra energy filled with consciousness and bliss.The ultimate end of meditation is to reach profound stillness, which is very deep. In meditation one goes deeper, and comes to a stage where there is almost nothing moving, but this is not to be equated with nothing, for it is the most potent of all that this universe knows..”
Śrī Śāntānanda Saraswatī (1913-1997)
