This is the only way…to explain existence, to overcome sadness and grievances, to banish death and misery, to find the right path, to realise Nirvana – it is correct meditation. – Gautama Buddha

When the mind is stilled, when the intellect is stilled, that is called the highest state by the wise. – The Upanishads

The mind turned outward results in thoughts and objects. Turned inwards it becomes the Self. – Ramana Maharshi

COURSE OUTLINE
