Game-changing! Attending the Manhattan Meditation Center was game-changing for me. It is like an ocean of wisdom; I sail and discover new aspects of life each and every time I visit the Meditation Center. I am very grateful that this resource is available on Fifth Avenue.

Love and peace radiate all around in the space

The Manhattan Meditation Center is a place for solitude, a place to experience a complete feeling of peace. My soul is rejuvenated as is my sense of being when I go there. Love and peace radiate all around in the space. I am at ease and content, and ready to join the world and give myself to be the change I desire to see in the world.

I experience an immediate feeling of welcome when I enter the Manhattan Meditation Center

The trustees of the Meditation Center and Gallery make a deliberate effort to create and sustain a pure spiritual atmosphere. There is an immediate feeling of welcome as I enter the clean, elegant, yet simple space at 306 Fifth Avenue, 2nd Floor. The Meditation Room is calm and peaceful, and even the most stressed-out New Yorker can sit quietly and connect with the self and with God, and re-energize the spirit.

I found answers at the Manhattan Meditation Center

I was always a seeker. While looking at the world around me, I had many questions; Who am I? What is my purpose on earth? Why is there so much conflict in the name of God? Is it possible that this is all there is to life? Am I just born to exist, and then exit again when I am 80 or 90 years old? Is this all? These existential questions used to race in my mind. My search for answers led me to the Manhattan Meditation Center where I found them. After enrolling myself in the Raja Yoga foundation course I received so many answers. I felt so much satisfaction with the findings about my true Self and nature. This knowing gives me so much peace; the ongoing search finally could stop.

I experience a feeling of inner peace amidst the frenetic scenes of the city

The Manhattan Meditation Center serves as a place where I can experience the feeling of inner peace and solitude amidst the highly frenetic scenes taking place every day on the streets of Manhattan. The Center is one of the few places where I am able to feel an elevated vibration as soon as I get off the elevator. I am immediately transported into a more peaceful, calmer, and welcoming environment. 

I have been working in the fast pace world of finance and Wall Street. I have learned to integrate the peace and inner quiet I experience through meditation into my life. Raja Yoga meditation has given me a higher level of awareness on how to train my mind to experience “true happiness and joy” as opposed to the experience of small waves of temporary happiness. I find the teachers at the Meditation Center to be experienced and knowledgeable, and they truly care about helping me gain a greater depth in my meditation experience.

I have been coming here for over two years. Now, I come with greater frequency because it feels more like a home. The beautiful “silence” room upstairs serves as an oasis of peace to help me re-center myself before going back out into the world. I find the Thursday night “Wisdom in Action” sessions to be very useful because the programs address very relevant topics to my daily life. If anyone wants to gain a greater insight into how to connect to your true inner self and bring your original virtues up and out into your life, please come and experience this place.
