Why I Meditate — Vibha

August 20, 2015

Vibha, a government administrator, and Ananda Gurgaon devotee on why she meditates.

"I was trying my best to achieve the best everywhere. But it was just not working. And I was at my wit's end, I struggled to work longer hours and it was not coming together. So when I was having all this stress in my life, a natural instinct in me said: go the spiritual way and meditate. The result was that my nerves were calmer. So, my relationships at work became better, they became more trustworthy. And it was a kind of a happy time where I could be very happy and safe and delegate my work to my colleagues.

"And at the same time, when I came back home, I was a happier mother. So for my children also it was a good joyful time. Generally, I felt that meditation brought a lot of value to relationships, trust, sincerity, and calm within. So when these things were going well, a sudden shift in my own thought process happened. I thought that I started meditating, to kind of do my stress management, the purpose of the spiritual life for me, while I was in the family changed, and it became for me personally, a spiritual evolution, a journey of innovation, and at the same time a big task to look "who am I", and find God. So today meditation for me has a much deeper spiritual value."
