Meditation can provide the master key to our well-being.

Meditation can unlock our true potential and enable us to meet the world with renewed energy, authenticity, wisdom, creativity, compassion and equanimity.

In meditation, we have an opportunity to take a break from the incessant activity and habitual “doing” that often consumes and defines our lives. By coming to rest physically and mentally, we can begin to observe and uncover a depth and calmness of being.

The remarkable benefits of meditation include:

  • an expanded sense of awareness,
  • clarity of thought,
  • lasting peace and happiness,
  • as well as an understanding of our innate ability to resolve the challenges of everyday life.

The School received the meditation practice in the 1960's. In subsequent years instruction and guidance was given by the head of the Advaita Tradition in Northern India, Śrī Śāntānanda Sarasvatī, then the Śańkarācārya of Jyotir Math. He continued to provide instruction and guidance until his death in 1997. Guidance continues to be received from the current Śańkarācārya of Jyotir Math.

See the History of the School.

Today, the School continues to offer the authentic and simple practice, one which is easily learnt and can be practiced within the demands of daily life.


The system of meditation is not religious. It is designed for the human spirit which is not bound to any religion.

Śrī Śāntānanda Sarasvatī

"Always brings me back to the present moment and helps me find a point of stillness in the chaos ... so many positives its had in my life."
