Amma constantly reminds us that when we pray and meditate for the benefit of the world, not only are other beings and nature benefited from our practices, but in fact we are the ones who experience the benefit first. We feel an immediate sense of joy and peace in the moment and the merit of our efforts also comes back to us at a later time.
Amma tells us that in current times, both nature and the human mind are in an agitated state. By cultivating positive thoughts and emotions within ourselves, understanding the truth of our inter-connectedness, we can trust that these vibrations will help make a difference in the world.
Guided world peace meditations are a part of all the Silent Meditation Retreats. In addition, the longer retreats present guided meditations in forgiveness, loving kindness, compassion and gratitude.
