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.

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.

Meditation alleviates the discomfort of built up stress

I found the Brahma Kumaris while going through a lot of stress in the day to day hustle of corporate America, especially in NYC. What I have learned at the Manhattan Meditation Center while doing the “spiritual work” and through meditation is that the experience is not so much about what I take with me as it is about what I leave behind. I let go of the stress and drama that I a carry on my shoulders. Meditation surely alleviates the discomfort of the built up stress. But, I realize it is something I need to consistently work at. And, I get support for doing just that at the Meditation Center. Only in shedding this heaviness of the day to day, can I see who I really am, and recognize what I can achieve in life.

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.
