AN INNER PEACE FOR WORLD PEACE EVENT
Blessings of a Bodhisattva


ABOUT
Experience a day of peace, upliftment and spiritual awakening with Master Sri Avinash.

The event includes a group guided

meditation and an opportunity to receive Darshan – a personal healing blessing.


MEDITATION FOR INNER PEACE
The meditation state is a state of deep relaxation and peace of mind. Sri Avinash will help to bring us to this state by leading his Holistic Meditation Technique. This meditation encompasses the essence of all meditation practices—outer awareness, inner awareness, breath awareness and the prayer of compassion.

It is a very beautiful and powerful guided meditation that will warm your heart and give you a sense of deep peace.


EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF DARSHAN
The ancient spiritual tradition of healing and blessings from a holy person is called Darshan. ‘Darshan’ is from Sanskrit, and means to have a vision of, or an occasion of seeing a holy person or a Self-Realized Master. During Darshan the Master transmits divine love and spiritual power to bless and uplift the individual.

After the meditation, every person will have an opportunity to receive Darshan from Master Sri Avinash.

This blessing raises the individual’s overall vibration, which instills inner peace and acts as a catalyst for spiritual awakening.

Darshan can go on for many hours while Sri Avinash receives each person individually. Numbered Darshan tokens will be given out at the door upon arrival. To avoid waiting for Darshan, it is advised to arrive early to receive your token. Those who have young children or a disability can ask a Darshan queue assistant for priority.

About Sri Avinash

What religion is Sri Avinash?
Sri Avinash is a Spiritual Master and Bodhisattva, embodying the compassion of all Buddhas.

His way is non-sectarian, which emabraces all religions.

Sri Avinash says, “My religion is the religion of love, service and compassion.”


What does Sri Avinash teach?
To Sri Avinash, meditation and selfless service are like the two wings of a bird that will take us to the goal of permanent happiness.

He teaches that the mind is the cause of all disturbances and unrest, so controlling the mind is essential to peace, happiness and spiritual advancement. He emphasises the importance of regular and consistent meditation to quiet the mind, increase tranquility and build inner strength. When a seeker’s practice is successful, the feelings of happiness and inner fulfillment naturally arise.

According to Sri Avinash, the aim of meditation is to be fully aware of the present moment. When the seeker’s awareness is in the present moment, and they are fully aware of that, this state is known as satori. Satori is a temporary state of enlightenment and it is not possible for emotional suffering and disturbance to occur during that state. Furthermore, having a taste of this creates a critical benchmark that will guide the seeker’s future practice.

Sri Avinash prescribes various meditation techniques, and in response to the needs of the current times he has also developed the Holistic Meditation Technique. The Holistic Meditation Technique encompasses the essence of all meditation practices—outer awareness, inner awareness, breath awareness and the prayer of compassion.

The second fundamental teaching of Sri Avinash is selfless service. This practice is most dear to him because of its power to open the seeker’s own heart and others’ hearts at the same time. This process awakens love in the seeker and dissolves their ego over time, eventually leading to the remembrance of their divine nature.

Irrespective of what method of spiritual practice a person chooses, Sri Avinash teaches that with effort and grace, together with the personal guidance of a Self-realized Master, it is definitely possible to attain enlightenment in this lifetime.


General / Spirituality


What is meditation and why is it beneficial?
The word ‘meditation’ refers to both the meditation state and meditation techniques. Meditation techniques are tools that help us to experience the meditation state.

The meditation state is a state of deep relaxation and freedom from suffering, which is the ultimate goal of the spiritual path. There are many effective meditation techniques, such as breath meditation, mantra meditation, chanting, walking meditation, sound meditation, mindfulness meditation and Sri Avinash’s Wholistic Meditation Technique.

Sri Avinash teaches that ‘emotions follow thoughts like a shadow’. From this, we can learn that disturbing emotions are triggered firstly by thoughts. The thoughts may be, ‘I am not loved’ or ‘You should not do that to me’ or ‘I have to achieve success.’ Whatever the thoughts may be, if a person is experiencing negative emotions, the origin can be traced back to thoughts.

When this is understood, the benefit of meditation techniques becomes quite apparent—if we practice to control or switch off our thoughts, then the corresponding negative emotions can be overcome. This means the power to end our suffering is within our own hands, to the degree that we are able to master our thoughts.

So meditation techniques are tools to practice mastering our thoughts by bringing us, again and again, back to our point of meditative focus, whether it be the breath, the sound of the mantra we are chanting, or the object of our prayer, etc.

Sri Avinash teaches that as we bring our focus to this point of concentration or present moment, thoughts cannot enter at the same time. From this, we can see that the more we build our muscles of concentration, the more we will be able to master our thoughts, and the more we will be able to have control over our own happiness.
