Two weeks ago, I started a regular meditation class every Thursday evening, something new I am sharing with the world in 2015 after having taught yoga classes for 13 years. I felt that the time has come for me to move into the more subtle dimension of spirituality i.e. a rediscovery of our true nature, Ananda (bliss). Ananda is not joy or pleasure, it is that tranquil silent state which we experience when we have gone beyond both pain and pleasure. In short, it is the state in which both pain and pleasure have ceased to affect us.
From my experience, there are a few important understandings which can smoothen one’s journey in experimenting with meditation.
