Meditate With Shri Shiva Rudra Balayogi Maharaj

New Renaissance Bookshop Event Center

Free! Baba is a masterful teacher who draws from his own experience of Self Realization to impart Self Knowledge and to clarify questions on meditation and spirituality. Join us for this special opportunity to learn and practice with a true Master. An essential message of Baba’s teaching is: People are suffering because they have not discovered the liberating Truth of who they are. Among the thousands of thoughts that appear in our mind each day, there is one thing which is not a thought - our consciousness of existing. The silent witness to the mind is the true Self. Direct experience of this fundamental reality brings peace and contentment to our life. By silencing the mind with meditation, we come face to face with the truth of existence, a state of consciousness in which supreme peace is the reality. Ordained as a monk and established in the ashram of His Divine Guru, the renowned Yogi, Shivabalayogi, Babaji spent twenty years in meditation and service before the physical passing of Shivabalayogi in 1994. Then Babaji began an intense period of tapas lasting five years, remaining in samadhi for up to 21 hours per day. At the end of this tapas, Babaji was ordained by God and His Divine Guru to continue the teaching mission of His Divinity Shri Shivabalayogi Maharaj. Srby.org
