In Indonesiaby

The Asia Foundation

To complete celebrations of World Interfaith Harmony Week, the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University, Jakarta, held World Meditation Hour (WMH) on 21 February, 2016, using the method of Raja Yoga. Meditation is a journey inwards, one of self-discovery or, in fact, rediscovery. Meditation is time taken for quiet reflection and silence, away from the hustle and bustle of daily living. Taking time out enables us to come back to a centered place of being. In 23 our modern world, where the pace of life is growing ever faster, we are losing touch with our original inner peace and power. Raja Yoga meditation is a meditation without rituals or mantras and can be practiced anywhere, at any time, with open eyes - as it is an awareness of who we truly are and an awareness of God. Meditation is a state of being, where spiritual empowerment begins. Spiritual awareness gives us the power to choose good and positive thoughts over those which are negative and wasteful. We start to respond to situations, rather than just reacting to them. We begin feel deep inner peace and harmony, creating better, happier and healthier relationships, changing our lives (and others) for the better.
