People have different concepts about meditation. According to many, meditation is concentrating on something. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says, meditation is de-concentration. Meditation is accepting this moment – living every moment totally. However, the result of meditation is improved concentration. One can go deeper into one’s self and have rest with full awareness through a guided meditation. Meditation becomes completely effortless when it is done with the guidance of a master.
Very often we identify ourselves with the body. A guided meditation takes us from the body level to the level of the spirit and thus makes our spiritual journey beautiful and faster. Constant practice of a guided meditation transforms not only the practitioner’s life, but also changes the entire environment around the practitioner.

In deep meditation, you are the time and everything is happening in you. Events are happening in you like the clouds come and go in the sky. When you are ahead of time, it is dragging and boring. When the time is ahead of you, then you are surprised and shocked. You cannot digest the events. When you are with the time, you are wise and at peace. - His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
