How It Works

Vedic Meditation is a simple and effortless technique that is practiced regularly in small increments. Unlike many of the "monastic" techniques available which require concentration, determination, discipline and even mental force, those words are not welcome during the practice.

The technique involves a special sound called a "mantra". This mantra is specially selected by a trained teacher and causes the mind to dive into deep states of rest, far deeper than during sleep.

We're used to having thoughts lead us into action. During Vedic Meditation the opposite occurs. Repetition of the mantra takes us into a place called "being".  The term "just be" is common now. This technique allows the meditator to "just be". And from that place it is possible to "just do".

The deep rest experienced allows the body to start to throw off the stresses that have accumulated over time.  None of us avoid taking on at least some stress during life and if not removed this stress stays with us. The late nights, the parties, the sick child requiring nursing, the near death experiences in traffic, fear of failure, financial concerns etc.

Launch Into Action

Once that state of "just being" is reached for a short period of time the second part of this technique comes into play. Having rested deeply, the meditator launches into regular daily activity.  Looking after the children, shopping, negotiations, work, love - life.

This contrast between the meditation and the regular action of daily life is pivotal to the technique. It is through this repeated oscillation that the meditator eventually experiences a greater degree of equinimity, steadiness and robustness all through the day.
