Programs At Tantric Yoga Meditation Centre
Sundays at 6:00 pm
Join us for group meditation led by Jaya Deva, an acharya, or a yogic minister. All traditions are welcome. Each session is held every Sunday at 6 pm at Pacific Gardens Cohousing Community in Nanaimo. Our time together is called called Dharmacakra, which means the Great Wheel of Righteousness in the Sanskrit language. It involves four steps:
• First, we will learn how to do kiirtan, which is a spiritual, musical dance to prepare us for group meditation. While doing kiirtan, we will be listening to the Sanskrit musical chant “Baba Nam Kevalam”, or roughly translated as “Love is All There Is.”
• Second, we will chant some Sanskrit verses from the ancient Rig Veda that will help unify us together as a spiritual, meditation group. And please don’t worry about the Sanskrit…it’s an ancient, spiritual language and I will provide all translations so that you may learn the basics.
• Third, we will then meditate in silence for 30 minutes. I will provide guided meditation and teach the group to use specific mantras to calm our “monkey minds” and focus our breathing.
• Fourth, after meditating (or doing Sadhana), I will introduce an interesting spiritual topic, such as “Why Am I Here In This Life and What Is My Purpose, or Dharma?” Or, “how may I obtain peacefulness in a chaotic world?” We will discuss these questions together for another 30 minutes or so prior to ending the session. I will also read some passages by the Guru Shrii Shrii Anandamurti that will help guide us in our exploratory discussions.
So, if you have never meditated before, or have been doing it for a while, I’m sure you will find the experiences heart-opening, thought provoking, and pleasurable.
I will also offer my services (free or by donation) for individualized meditation techniques and practices. These are very effective for achieving spiritual enlightenment and they have a 7,000-year history when Lord Shiva first introduced them in the Indus Valley, located in modern day Pakistan.
