"Meditation is absolute silence of the mind…
Only in that total, complete, unadulterated silence
is that which is truth."
~Jiddhu Krishnamurti    

This month, we are "Awakening to the Silence of Meditation."
Our feature articles present the thoughts and ideas of ten meditation experts, who offer transformative tips and techniques for helping us find meditative silence.  It is in the perfect stillness and silence of meditation that we may come to truly know ourselves and be guided to peace, Truth and understanding.
