Sadhvi Shanti in Ukraine: Meditation seminar for Hospital
Yoga in daily life society of Cherkassy invited Sadhvi Shanti to hold a weekend-seminar on the subject of “MEDITATION – the way to happiness”. The seminar took place in the medical centre “Astra” in Cherkassy. The Saints of India brought the spiritual heritage of Yoga and Meditation to the world. Self-realization is the aim of all yoga paths. Meditation is the best tool to reach this aim, which is achievable for everyone. We practiced different techniques from Yoga in daily life, like asanas , concentration and different levels of “Self-Inquiry Meditation”. During the lectures we were recommended to study the ancient scriptures of Upanishads, Bhagvat-Gita, Adi Guru Shankaracharya and the books of “Yoga in daily life”, written by Swami Maheshwarananda. In satsangs, after interpretation, we were all chanting mantras, singing bhajans, especially those in connection with Meditation and Self-realization, like Shivoham and Cidananda Rupa Shivoham . The income of the whole program is going to the Sri Swami Madhavananda Austria Hospital in Jadan, India to help the needy one.
