About Meditation Central

Meditation Central provides information about the free meditation classes and workshops being offered in Taupō and throughout the central North Island by members of the New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre. Our classes are free of charge at the request of our spiritual teacher Sri Chinmoy, who encouraged his students to offer meditation classes in the spirit of self-offering, oneness and peace. Our goal is to inspire others to explore their inner potential and to discover the many positive and practical benefits of meditation.

About Shardul: Our Meditation Class Instructor

Shardul Dillicar

Our meditation classes in the central North Island being offered by Taupō based Shardul Dillicar who has been a member of the Sri Chinmoy Centre since 1984. Shardul delights in the privilege and opportunity of sharing his love of meditation, its numerous benefits and related subjects with others. In his own words,

"No matter where we are at in life, meditation can be of tremendous help to us. Regular meditation brings forward peace, confidence and joy from the very depths of our hearts, and these qualities spread to every aspect of our lives. Meditation also simplifies and purifies our lives, which helps us to see the best in ourselves. If we are unhappy or dissatisfied, we feel and see that reality everywhere. Conversely, when we are happy, positive and progressive, we naturally see those realities in everyone and everything around us.

Meditation also brings forward our creative capacities and this helps us to make the best of our lives – it is a transformative, natural and pragmatic force for betterment. Ultimately, meditation offers a deep satisfaction that is not reliant on anything external but is self-generated from within ourselves. And it is this satisfaction that grants us a truly happy and fulfilling life that allows us to thrive."
