Meditation and mindfulness isn’t limited to one thing, but it’s a great place to start. Meditation is both a skill and an experience that can positively impact your overall health and happiness. The benefits of meditation for anxiety and stress include reducing physical discomfort, putting things into perspective to make better decisions and coping with difficult situations.

Loka Yoga Ashram is a place for healing and education. “People go out and they try to find that joy by focusing on things in the world whether objects or individuals, and many cases the contacts they have in the world, when they don’t have a sense that everything is a reflection of this single Narayan, they fall short from the mark because they are unsatisfied with those relationships. “Bhakti Yoga teaches that those relationships are fine because we feel and love things in the world because we are actually loving the spirit of the soul. So who wouldn’t embrace something as beautiful as that. Although it is incredibly straightforward and simple it remains a supreme secret because one has to know the sweetness of the heart” — Shyamdas
