Q) What is meditation?

The purpose of meditation is to cultivate positive states of mind, conducive to peace and well-being, and overcome negative habits of mind. Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external conditions. When our mind is peaceful we are free from worries and mental discomfort, and we experience true happiness.

Meditation is a technique used by millions of people to develop a calm and peaceful mind. It reduces stress, anxiety, and other negative states of mind and promotes physical and mental well-being. The meditations we guide are non-sectarian, non-judgemental, and universal. They are simple and accepted methods to help people tackle the stress and anxiety associated with the challenges of modern daily life.
