Meditation in Potsdam
with Bishnu Kumar Karki, certified yoga teacher from Nepal
Meditation classes every Tuesday from 5:30 – 7 pm
In the rooms of the Himalaya Yoga & Ayurveda Zentrum Potsdam
tatra pratyaya-ekatånatå dhyånam
tatra - there, at that place
pratyaya - perception
ekatånatå – unceasing
dhyåna – meditation
The entire sentence (sýtra) thus means: In the state of dhyåna (meditation), perception is unceasingly focused at one single place
When we let our stream of perception flow continuously with our mind completely focused on a single object, we are in a state of meditation. During meditation our mind unites with the calm Prana (soul). Through meditation we can simplify our outer life and strengthen our inner life. Our mind is calm and alert, distracting thoughts and wishes cannot enter. With a calm mind we can perceive the energy of All That Is within us, and our entire being becomes an empty vessel. In this state we are then ready to receive infinite peace, infinite light, and infinite happiness.
Direct positive effects of meditation can include: increased calmness, better sleep and increased concentration. Meditation is therefore a helpful tool for people experiencing chronic stress and burn out. It helps heal mental fatigue, chronic headaches and chronic back problems. Additionally, the musculature of the back is strengthened, leading to an improved posture.
