My heart is filled with tremendous gratitude for all I have received from the Manhattan Meditation Center

In the middle of busy New York City, the Manhattan Meditation Center is an oasis of peace and tranquility. The spiritual knowledge I have learned at the Center has awakened my true identity and taught me how to access my inner powers and virtues. When I practiced what I have learned during my daily routine, I experience a tremendous impact at home, work and in the community.

I have been a regular student for the 8 years. Attending the Center is the best way to start my day. After investing a few minutes in meditation – empowering the self – I experience peace, calm and success throughout the entire day. At the Center, I am home, immersed in love and compassion, and enjoy a feeling of truly belonging. Studying at the Meditation Center is the greatest gift I have given to myself and my loved ones. My heart is filled with tremendous gratitude.

Raja Yoga Improves my body’s immunity and is a panacea for personal ills too

The knowledge and skills that I receive at Brahma Kumaris Manhattan Meditation Center are not solely applicable to my mental and spiritual health. Rather, they are also connected with the wellbeing of my physical, social, family and professional life. To me, Raja Yoga meditation improves my body’s immunity to help guard off disease and is a panacea to personal and social ills too. I like the fact that the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organization is a values-based organization, not a present-day, religion-based organization. The best part is that it is up to me to agree or disagree with the teachings, with no hard feelings.  All the classes and programs are conducted in a friendly and serene atmosphere with good wishes.

This newfound insight has allowed me to shift from the role of a victim into a more self-empowered role

Since coming to the BK Manhattan Meditation Gallery, I’ve been able to asses my current circumstances and overall life choices more objectively and honestly. This newfound insight has allowed me to shift from the role of a victim into a more self-empowered role and, as a result, taken steps to live a more fulfilling life through the practice of Raja Yoga.

A feeling of freshness and wholeness come over me at the Meditation Center

Every time I go to the Manhattan Meditation Center and the elevator door opens, it is like I am stepping from night into day. A feeling of freshness, of wholeness comes over me, and it is as if the rest of the world does not exist. One specific benefit that I got from attending the classes at the Meditation Center was during the time when my son had just gone to college and I was so upset that he was not returning any of my five or six daily phone calls to him. I was going crazy about that. While attending a class at the Center another lady shared about her attachment to her 21 your old son who was also going to college. The instructor asked her if her son was her property and suggested that is healthier to let go of the attachment to her son and to allow him to travel his own journey. It was real a wakeup call for me. I completely stopped calling my son. After three weeks, he started to call me.
