Advanced Meditation Instruction, Course 2019
The purpose of each new technique is to improve the mind’s ability so that each thought is cognized at a more effective level and thereby action made correspondingly stronger. Each new instruction further habituates the mind to maintain the deepest level of the thinking process. Once you have practiced meditation for 6 months or more, you are eligible to take the next technique.
Our touring Advanced Meditation instructor, Gyanendra Mahapatra, M.D., is both a medical doctor and renowned Vedic scholar. To date he has taught Advanced Meditation Instruction to over 10,000 students, a world record. He regularly tours the United States and is a frequent guest to our meditation center in Deerfield Beach. We are pleased to announce his tour for 2017.
The practice is designed and administered for each meditator in order that his mind may systematically transcend through the experience of subtler fields of perception. Dr. Mahapatra is trained to make the selection of each student’s instruction which will often involve a change in mantra. With each new advanced meditation instruction our experience deepens. Students become more aware of the finer fabrics of one's own consciousness entering into a world of refined perception, bliss, and silent exploration.
One does not need additional time to practice the advanced meditation. There are no books to read or study to prepare. We continue to provide traditional instruction based on ancient tradition revived by Swami Brahmananda Saraswati, or Guru Dev, who was the Shankaracharya of northern India from 1940 to 1953.

Advanced Meditation Instruction Course - Questions and Answers
Our office has received dozens of questions regarding the course in advanced meditation. This course is open to all on our list who have learned to meditate. The new course is another step, an advancement in one’s practice.
We have prepared a brief summary of questions and answers:
Question: This is called advanced meditation instruction. Why is it advanced?
Answer: When you took your basic course you learned all you need to meditate successfully. The new course is like a fertilizer placed on the soil to nourish the growth of a tree. Advanced Meditation Instruction takes meditation practice to the next level.
If we dive into a pond enough we might be ready to learn scuba, allowing us to explore the bottom of water. With this ability the diver becomes intimately familiar with the depths.
Like that, Advanced Meditation Instruction accelerates the expansion of consciousness into our awareness and provides us with the ability to explore more thoroughly that level of scenery which is more enjoyable.
Question: My meditations vary. Sometimes I go very deep, sometimes I am active. Will this change if I take the new course?
Answer: Advanced Meditation Instruction speeds up the growth of consciousness. With each new instruction one finds this to be true. As we continue, the mind and body become less and less active, more silent. Deep meditation is the result of regular practice.
Question: This will be my first advanced instruction. Will I receive a new mantra?
Answer: Most likely. Could be an addition to the existing mantra. Each instruction is tailored to the individual. Dr. Mahapatra will teach the first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth techniques and will determine the instruction best suited to you. It’s an upgrade in your meditation practice itself.
Question: I learned to meditate some time ago. I have not been regular in practice and want to get back into a good meditation routine. Should I take advanced instruction?
Answer: Yes. You need to have practiced 6 months straight at some point in the past. This is a big boost in your practice and does not require extra time to practice. Meditators everywhere find the increased charm of deep mediation uniquely rewarding to all levels of one’s life.
Question: Will there be a need to add extra time to my meditation?
Answer: No. You continue with your routine as previously instructed. Adding extra time is not always helpful. For maximum results, we go with our routine.
Question: Dr. Mahapatra. Was he trained by the same person and organization as all TSM teachers?
Answer: Yes he was. It's all standardized. Teachers are taught in the same way. Advanced Meditation instructors have the most training and have been entrusted with the responsibility to keep the teaching as it was taught.
