Led by Pravrajika Gayatriprana

Join us for Silent Meditation at Vedanta Hall, 15 Liverpool Road, Croydon, from 7 pm
or via Zoom from 7.30 pm:

Discussion Theme – Meditation: Subjective Techniques: 

  • Neti Neti ‘not this, not this’: •We reflect on the famous hymn Nirvanashatakam, providing essential insights into our path to meditation: 
  • ‘I am not the mind, intellect ego or the memory; I am not the ears, the tongue, the skin, the nose or the eyes. I am not the space, not earth, not fire, water or wind. I am the form of consciousness and bliss. I am the eternal Shiva.’
  • The Great Sayings: We study the Mahavakyas – great sayings from the Upanishads that declare our body, mind and soul, our comings and goings, our births and rebirths, are ultimately just a dream. We are ever-free.
  • Capturing our True Essence: We learn about Vidyas (archetypes leading to a knowledge of ultimate reality) and other techniques to enhance our concentration and focus.

Drawing on the book: ‘Science of Happiness – According to Yoga Vedanta by Pravrajika Divyanandaprana: a compilation of her talks given to students at the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology in New Delhi in 2018.
Pravrajika Divyananandaprana is a nun of Sri Sarada Math of the Ramakrishna Order. Thousands view her talks on YouTube.
Our discussions tap into the wisdom of major world faiths and thinkers relating them to our daily life. You’re welcome to share your insights, experiences, and doubts with the group.
