Brahmastan of India

Brahmasthan of India

A life-transforming week
at the Brahmasthan of India,
November 2017

“I’ve had the desire to visit the Brahmasthan, or the geographical centre, of India for a long time. In Vedic culture, the centre of a country is regarded as playing a pivotal role: what happens there has a direct influence on the consciousness of the inhabitants of the country. Therefore, at the end of the nineties, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi started building a spiritual centre at this location.

Maharishi has called this place the holiest of all holy places in India because it is where the world’s largest group of pandits generates peace from the level of pure consciousness. For many hours each day, 2,500 men collectively practice the advanced techniques of Transcendental Meditation, as well as perform Ati Rudrabhishek, the powerful Vedic technology for creating peace. In this modern age, more than forty large-scale scientific studies, all published in respected journals, confirm the positive effects of these ancient, time-tested techniques of consciousness.“ … more
