Throughout the year, the Sri Chinmoy Centre in New York offer free introductory meditation classes for people wishing to learn how to meditate. Recent classes have been well attended with over 400 people attending different sessions.
The meditation classes are based on the teachings of meditation teacher, Sri Chinmoy. Sri Chinmoy, born in India, lived in Queens, New York from April 1964 to his mahasamadhi in October 2007. As well as establishing a thriving meditation centre in New York, there are now Sri Chinmoy centres in over 60 different countries.
The essence of meditation is to experience the peace buried deep within. As Sri Chinmoy says:
” I meditate
So that I can inundate
My entire being
With the omnipotent
Power of peace.”
