Auto-suggestion (what we think and tell ourselves) and outer-suggestion (the messages that our surroundings give us) play a big role in shaping our destiny. With simple meditation techniques you can take control of this process. This podcast explains how it works and how you can do it.

We look at how surrendering everything to God can help us in spiritual meditation, and also look at some practical ways to accomplish this.
We take a look at the three main obstacles that crop up when we try to meditate, and give some suggestion about how to overcome them and achieve a deeper more peaceful experience.
“As you think, so you become” is the psychological basis for the practice of meditation and for success in life. In this podcast we look at the role of auto-suggestion and outer-suggestion in this process.
Kiirtan (often spelled kirtan) is the practice of chanting mantras prior to meditation. In this podcast Dada Vedaprajinanda goes over the benefits of this practice. The Baba Nam Kevalam (only the name of the most beloved) is the chant referenced in this podcast.
We go over a few steps you can take to improve your meditation practice.
Why should I start meditation now, when I can do it at a later time? Dada Vedaprajinananda explores this question.
Someone asked this question 3500 years ago, and it is still a pressing issue. Dada Vedaprajinananda goes into it using the response given by the yogi-king Yudhisthira and by contemporary guru Shrii Shrii Anandamurti
Dada Vedaprajinananda is joined by special guest Dr. Sid Jordan, aka. Acarya Vishvamitra for a discussion on the roles of meditation and psychotherapy in the task of overcoming psychological problems and reaching our full human potential.
Is there a way to understand the milestones on the spiritual path? In this episode we look at four stages of spiritual growth. This topic stemmed from a question by one of our listeners who wondered how to deal with the obstacles to meditation posed by friends, neighbors and other people who do not understand what we are doing.
