What is Vedic Meditation?
The Vedic Meditation Technique* is a simple, natural, effortless procedure practised for 20 minutes in the morning and evening, while sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.
Vedic Meditation allows the activity of thinking to become increasingly quiet and settled. This process continues until the mind transcends the finest impulse of thought and experiences its quietest, most settled state while alertness is fully maintained. At the same time the body gains a state of very deep rest.
Following the practice you feel refreshed mentally and physically - the mind is calmer and more alert, thinking is clearer and energy levels increase. People find they can achieve more with less effort, and that work, recreation and relationships are more rewarding.
*The Veda is the body of knowledge from ancient India that is the source of Yoga, Meditation, and Ayurvedic medicine, and is the basis of Indian Philosophy.
