ABOUT OUR STUDIO
Based in Norwood, Adelaide Meditation Studio specialises in Vedic Meditation. This form of meditation originated from Eastern traditions, and its benefits are acknowledged by Western science. Vedic Meditation comes from the Vedas, the ancient body of knowledge from India. The Veda is the source of yoga, meditation, and Ayurvedic medicine.
The Vedic meditation method of “least effort” is described in Sanskrit as “nishkam karma yoga”. This method was designed to allow ordinary people to transcend their meditation practice in order for the mind to rest.
This natural meditation style is neither spiritual, religious or mystical. It does not require any prior spiritual or religious beliefs.
In Vedic meditation, nothing is done other than allowing the mind to follow its preference into stillness. Effort means control and its use in meditation takes away from our most natural ability to rest. Vedic meditation shows how to let the mind settle down by its own natural tendency.
“When you rest the mind in Vedic meditation you do not have to individually cultivate honesty and discipline, focus and compassion. The direct practice of stillness brings all that.”
