This meditation session is a treasure. I’m now in my third year of participating in these sessions. The more I participate, the more I receive—experiences of meditation and ever deeper understandings of Gurumayi’s teachings.

My meditation experience was very still and deep. I was able to continue following the mantra slowly with my breathing as I observed the movements and the spaces. Then the mantra led me into the space of the Heart, of the Self—to a sweet silence beyond silence. I emerged from meditation with a truly rested mind!
I’m so grateful that Gurumayi continues to guide me to the experience of Consciousness and bliss.

I am so grateful to attend these Meditation Sessions at a time in my life when I am dealing with challenges in my work. Instead of fighting a mind that seems difficult to control, I am more often able to focus on So'ham and experience peace within.

I am a long-time meditator.  Yet this session reminded me of what it is I meditate for: to experience the place of peace and bliss inside myself.
Thank you, Gurumayi, for making these meditation sessions available to us. They have been so helpful to me.

For me, this meditation session was truly phenomenal. The experience I had while listening to Swami Ishwarananda’s guidance and during the meditation period put me in touch with the basics and purpose of meditation. It reminded me of how much quieter my mind is now than it was three decades ago before I started to meditate. How wonderful! What a gift!

Someone recently wrote me that she wanted to start to meditate, but didn’t know the best way to get going. I will let her know about this meditation session. I think it’s an excellent way to “get going.”

I'm very grateful for this delightful meditation session. The freshness and easiness of the concepts Swami ji shared with us brought me back to the experience of awareness of the Self and encouraged me to invest effort in making this space more often available.

In this meditation session, I received such a beautiful and clear teaching on relating to my mind. I learned a new way to relate to my mind that feels better and is more effective for me.

Thank you, Gurumayi, from the bottom of my heart.

I loved this meditation session! What a beautiful title: Be Present with the Fullness of the Pure Mind. For me, putting Gurumayi’s teaching from this session into practice was like "adding fragrance to gold"!
