The words "Atmavedi Meditation" given as the name of the technique of meditation that we practice and teach, involving Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi, were carefully chosen because of their meaning, which is
- atma-vedi = Atman is the personal representative of Krishna who is responsible for your existence, and is essentially your Higher or True Self, and Veda, which is pure knowledge
- Meditation = a mental practice that yields experience of deeper levels of the mind
Atmavedi Meditation is "the mental practice for gaining the knowledge and experience of the True Self"
Atmavedi Meditation is the practice for achieving Moksha, which is the ultimate objective of human existence. As human beings, our True Dharma is to achieve Moksha then help others to achieve Moksha. This provides two levels of fulfillment in our life. First we have the fulfillment of accomplishing the goal of our incarnation and we have the experience of living in the spacious bliss of the Now, 24 hours a day. Then out of gratitude for this blessing of Moksha that we have received, we naturally want to share this blessing with our family and friends. What a wonderful world it would be if everyone could experience this spacious bliss of the Now!
