Monday Night Meditation

The pursuit of happiness is so fundamental to human nature that in the Declaration of Independence it is termed an “inalienable right.” Yet, when it comes to teaching us how to achieve happiness, our parents and teachers have traditionally directed our attention out into the world, toward relationships, activities, and possessions. A fair question we may ask is have we become happier with the passage of time, and is our happiness lasting?

For those of us who are still searching for a way to find lasting happiness, or even the meaning of life, an answer comes from the tradition of Jyoti Meditation. Physical relationships and material things do not last, but, if we invert our attention back to the source of our own consciousness, we will experience bliss, and that bliss will be lasting.

Jyoti Meditation is the practice whereby we focus our attention at a point between and behind the two eyebrows, and maintain that focus without the distraction of thought. That focus, the source of our own consciousness, is traditionally termed “the seat of the soul.” When we meditate in this way, we will see inner light, and experience ourselves as being one with that light. Such an experience confers lasting happiness. We need not renounce the world, but we do need to add the value of spiritual meditation to enrich our lives.

Monday Night Meditation is available to the community at large in English, with translations available in Spanish and Hindi. All are welcome to register and attend.
