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.

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.

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.

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.
