(Sri Chinmoy’s Meditation Series, Volume II)
Many people are discovering in meditation a way to find peace of mind and a more centred focus on their true inner nature. This book is the first of the series of volumes where spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy answers a very wide range of questions about meditation, including the meaning of different meditation experiences, how to make meditation practical and the intrinsic value of meditation.
Over the decades that Sri Chinmoy spent in the West, inspiring and instructing both his own students and the public on the art of meditation, he was approached on innumerable occasions for specific guidance. His answers have helped people from all backgrounds to learn how to meditate and to make a regular meditation practice a part of their lifestyle. This series of collections of questions and answers represents a portion of that dialogue.
