Mantra Meditation Group to practice and learn the technique of Meditation. A personal, soft chanting of sacred mantras on meditation beads, employing the ancient yogic tradition of vibrating spiritual sound as an illuminating path to self-discovery.
Mantras are sacred sound vibrations composed of transcendental syllables containing great spiritual power, or shakti. The proper vibration of these mantras enables us to concentrate and focus this spiritual energy, allowing us to experience the wonderful benefits. In Sanskrit, the word man indicates the mind, and the word tra indicates that which delivers, or liberates. Thus the effect of chanting a mantra is that one can deliver the mind from contemplation of the mundane in order to reach spiritual satisfaction.
Meditation can be quite a tricky practice because the mind is like a naughty child. By its very nature, the mind tends to wander off during the meditation practice. If ones energy is low at the time of meditation, there is every chance of falling asleep. If one's energy is too high, fantasy and distraction become the barriers. At such times, meditation beads provides the much-needed anchor...........

"The ability to handle stress increases with the practice of meditation. In a culture like ours in which inner, spiritual growth is totally neglected in favor of materialistic pursuits, we might have something to learn from the meditational practices"

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
