Event Details

Meditation is a journey to find our True Self. "Who am I?" "What is my True Self?"

Through this questioning about yourself, you can find your True Self and reach the englightenment.

Enlightenment means to see the true nature of your mind.

If you are truly enlightened, you can abtain true happiness.

There is no suffering any more. Everyday life  flows in harmony with the truth.

You will live in bliss every day. You can find the true meaning of life and

taste true happiness through this meditation.
