There is a part of you that is perfect and pure.
It is untouched by the less than perfect
characteristics you have acquired
by living in a less than perfect world...
Make time to reach this inner silence.
It will bring you untold benefit.

“QUIET TIME” has become the mantra of choice for the truly busy in a wide range of workplace types – from a corporate environment to the confines of the household, and everything in between. “Alone time” doesn’t seem to cut it anymore.

“One can be alone and yet weighed down by heavy feelings or negative thoughts,” says BK Jayanti Kirplani, a meditation teacher for about 40 years now.

Meditation guru in town for lecture
( Updated August 26, 2009 10:05 AM

MANILA, Philippines – A meditation expert has arrived in the country to deliver a lecture on meditation next week.

Already on her sixth visit to the Philippines, meditation guru Jayanti Kirplani, director for Europe of Brahma Kumaris, will speak in a free public program on “The Silence of the Mind” at the Rizal Ballroom of the Shangri-La Hotel in Makati City next Thursday (Sept. 3).

Brahma Kumaris is an India-based United Nations Peace Messenger organization.

In a statement, Kirplani, who has been teaching meditation for 40 years, explained the importance of achieving “silence of the mind.”

“True silence refines the thinking process by harmonizing the five subtle energies that every person possesses — mind, conscience, heart, attitude and memory,” she said.

Kirplani added that a “silent mind” would result in “accurate decision-making and ultimately, personal power and contentment.”

For details on next week’s program, please call 890-7960 or 414-9421.

Kirplani had previously delivered a lecture on “The Secret Laws of Abundance” last November at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Makati, drawing a standing-room-only crowd.
