Meditation for Everyone – Introduction
A Different Kind of Meditation
Very often meditation is thought of as trying to empty the mind of thoughts and desires. However, rarely do common meditation techniques or meditation apps bring lasting, tangible change or an experience of something greater within us. If we do receive any relief, it is often temporary. Life, as usual, pulls us back, and the mind again starts with its seemingly endless, not so productive chatter.
What if there was another way to calm the mind? A different way to meditate?
Bhakti Marga offers ways to calm the mind that are centered in the heart. Simply Meditation and Project Mantra are two simple, yet powerful techniques rooted in ancient meditation practices that help to calm and transform the mind with Love.
“Until one has gone deeply into the sadhana, deeply into the meditation, and calmed the mind, only then will the soul reveal itself. But before that, if the mind is still jumping around, the soul can’t be known.”
The Importance of Daily Meditation Practice
Similar to having good nutrition, exercising, or brushing your teeth, meditation is ultimately a lifelong practice. You would never clean your teeth once and think that is enough. Similarly, in order to calm the mind and experience the fruits of meditation, you need a daily practice that is effective and enjoyable.
Bhakti Marga Meditation Practices
“In meditation, when the mind is calm, you have a personal contact with the Divine, not outside, but within you. And the inner contact is the most wonderful and the most powerful contact you can ever have.”

Project Mantra: Experience the Power of Mantras
Mantra chanting (or Japa) is a form of meditation/prayer used across cultures and religions to help focus the mind on the Divine. The word “mantra” means protection of the mind from negativity. Mantra meditation using the Divine Names are a powerful way to calm the mind and connect us directly to the Divine within.
“It is through prayer, through japa, through meditation that we learn to control our thoughts, but the best of all is through silence. Pray, chant your mantra and silence yourself. Feel the mantra vibrating inside of you.”
