Find Inner Peace Through Meditation & Discourse with Baba Shiva Rudra Balayogi

Baba, one of the great self-realized yogis of our era, will visit Austin on a world tour, May 18 to 25, to conduct free meditation classes and answer questions on self-realization, meditation and finding inner peace.

An essential message of Baba’s teaching is: People are suffering because they have not discov-ered the liberating Truth of who they are. Among the thousands of thoughts that appear in our mind each day, there is a one thing which is not a thought - our consciousness of existing. The silent witness to the mind is the true Self. Direct experience of this fundamental reality brings peace and contentment to our life. By silencing the mind with meditation, we come face to face with the truth of existence, a state of consciousness in which supreme peace is the reality.

Baba is a masterful teacher who draws from his own experience of Self-Realization to impart Self-Knowledge and to clarify questions on meditation and spirituality. Learn and practice medi-tation with a true Master. Programs are free; donations appreciated.
