Bio

I learnt to meditate 35 year ago while working on my Engineering degree. I become an instructor (volunteer) with the Art of Living foundation after noticing the increased efficiency that meditation was brought into my busy life.

About Art of Living Meditation Center

If you want to learn a meditation practice that makes you feel more connected to the world around you, then the Sahaj Samadhi Meditation is right for you.

There are many meditation practices but Sahaj Samadhi excels others in its simplicity and in it being effortless to practice on a daily basis. Moreover, an effortless practice especially suits a professional whose life already demands critical thinking around the clock. Complex instructions related to a meditation technique is not what the mind needs while relaxing deeper during meditation session. Yes, the benefits of Sahaj Samadhi technique are profound

My clients include college students, software engineers, managers and executives. Many of my clients have become regular meditation practitioners and a few have gone on to meditation retreats.

    We (Eswaran & Saraswathy) had heard that art of living programmes are good, in the sense that they help to clear stresses and make the person to look at things more calmly and dispassionately.
    Mr. Krishna Ramadas along with Mr. Nilesh Acharya in a wonderful and calm way, have dealt with every topic so well that things were understood well by everyone in the group. My wife's anxiety has reduced significantly and she has been able to get better sleep. After performing Sudarshana kriya over the last two weeks, I find my pulse which used to be 85-90 has now come down to 70 - 75.
    In view of the above I can confirm our goals are achieved to our expectations.

    I remember I went into into the Art of Living Course not knowing what to expect but more out of figuring out a way to have some semblance of control in all aspects of a busy life. It was refreshing to see that the entire course was non-judgemental and in fact made me overtime realize that my out of control chaos was in fact perhaps normal.
    The breathing techniques and meditation practices are packed in small bites that you can carry with you every day at all places you end up in as part of your professional or personal life. I believe that regular practice has helped me not get carried away with the emotion of the moment in all aspects of my life.
    If you are just plain curious or seriously looking for ways to make your talents more effective and impactful at your work or in the community, try one of the introductory sessions and see if it is for you.
