Finding Inner Peace: Babaji Brings Meditation and Discourse to Portland

Posted on 24 April 2017 by Douglas Merrow

Baba Shiva Rudra Balayogi, who is recognized as one of the great self realized yogis of our era, will be visiting the Portland area April 28 through May 7 to conduct a series of free meditation classes and answer questions on meditation, self-realization and finding inner peace.
It is a special event and rare opportunity to learn from an accomplished Yogi. Portland will host evening programs with Babaji from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on April 28 at New Renaissance Bookshop and 7 to 9:30 p.m. on April 29 at Yoga Shala Wellness. From 7 to 9:30 p.m. on April 30, he will appear at Yoga Samadhi in White Salmon, Washington.
For those who would like to expand their meditation practice and deepen their experience, a three-day meditation intensive will be offered May 5 through 7 through the Columbia Gorge Meditation Retreat, in Stevenson, Washington. Participants can attend all or any portion of the intensive. Programs are suitable for beginner to advanced meditators.
The core of Baba’s teaching is, “People are suffering because they have forgotten the liberating truth of who they are. Among the thousands of thoughts that appear in our busy mind each day, there is one thing that is not a thought—our consciousness of existing. The silent witness to the mind is the true self. Without direct experience of this higher reality, it is not possible to stop suffering. 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.”
