In India, and as well in other parts of the world, there exist meditation centers. Meditation centers are a place where individuals from whatever background – religious, vocational or cultural – may go to experience first hand knowledge about the practice of meditation. As the name implies, meditation is the primary activity carried out at meditation centers, with the teaching of the way of life to new students. Meditation is simply a process through which a person may apply some principles in order to achieve a certain freedom of the mind which results in a calm, clear mind with the attributes of feelings of love, peace and happiness. This state of mind allows the individual to be better equipped to handle and deal with the exigencies of life, which if we are all to be sincere to ourselves is a reality of existence.One of the meditation centers of note is that being run by Z Meditation in Dharamsala, a small town in the well known Himalayas, reputed for it serenity and closeness to nature. At this meditation center, seekers are welcome from anywhere in the world to begin to benefit from the rational and analytical techniques which are employed in the teaching of meditation principles. One of the most basic benefits of visiting meditation centers is the opportunity of spending quality time in the location where several people have meditated over the years. There would have developed in these places, a kind of positive spiritual energy which may be felt by the more receptive of minds. This spiritual energy goes a long way in helping the seeker to tune into oneself and begin to imbibe the patterns of thought necessary for proper meditation.Most meditation centers have developed their own unique approaches to the learning and practice of meditation, most coming from the ancient practice of the Buddhist religion native to India. These developments have come to the stage where there is little or no religious affiliations anymore, processes following a more holistic approach. At Z Meditation, the techn iques em ployed are known as Deep Deconditioning Inquiry and Radiant Mantras, extremely powerful and efficient methods to use in achieving a detachment from deep rooted conditioned thinking patterns and the consequent behavior that will result from such thought patterns.There is no real prerequisite to admission at meditation centers, being open to all. The underlying conditions are very simply the personal desire of the student to be free, and the discipline to practice the techniques to be taught at the center, and on a consistent basis on leaving the meditation centers. Meditation, much like most processes of learning are not merely for certificates of attendance to display and show off; but rather for the benefit of the knowledge and the ability to use it to make a positive change in our personal lives.Most meditation centers, though located in remote and sometimes supposedly difficult to reach locations, are mostly within a few miles of a major airport, and the organization of such meditation centers will include airport concierge services to take the burden off the student from far away who may easily get lost. Meditation centers are a sure way for you to develop the skills necessary to enable the individual free herself from unnecessary suffering.

Graham Hancock’s “Quest For The Lost Civilization” **FULL MOVIE**
Graham Hancock’s “Quest For The Lost Civilization” (1998) Heaven’s Mirror (50 min.) bit.ly Forgotten Knowledge (50 min.) bit.ly Ancient Mariners (50 min.) bit.ly In this set of three videotapes, writer Graham Hancock traverses the world and explains his controversial theory that an ancient civilization, highly intelligent people who sailed the planet as early as 10500 BC, spread advanced astronomical knowledge and built ancient observatories. Skeptics may scoff, but Hancock earnestly points out similarities in giant stone structures in the Egyptian desert and Cambodian jungles, and on Easter Island and in Micronesia, he points out what he considers evidence of an ancient society of seafarers. His ideas may seem utterly bizarre at first, but Hancock presents them in an understated and good-natured manner, and he also makes clever use of computer graphics and aerial photography to illustrate the startling similarities in ancient structures found from the North Atlantic to the South Pacific. Hancock raises some puzzling questions, and even if you don’t buy his arguments, bolstered though they are by mathematical equations and astronomical diagrams, the Quest for the Lost Civilization is an entertaining mixture of archaeology, astronomy, and speculation.
