Guided Meditations and Instructions

Here are various meditations I’ve recorded, mostly from the short meditation instructions I give at the beginning of Satsang. I consider these “meditation instructions” rather than guided meditations, and so after the instructions, which are all 10-15 minutes, sit as long as you like in silence. I will add some actual “guided meditations” as well, soon.

Meditations are also embedded in the posts where the talk is that was given on the same night.
