With permission, the registered emblem of the International Foundation for Spiritual Unfoldment. (IFSU) is preserved by UKM since it is an acknowledgment of universal spiritual truth. Symbols of the world’s great religions are arranged around a central lamp, which represents the flame of divinity in each person’s heart. UKM recognizes that every individual has a unique and personal path to divinity. Our meditation practices are designed to help each of us follow that path.
Different types of Meditation
There are hundreds of types of meditation techniques. The ones prescribed by us fall into several main categories. Each has a specific purpose but interrelates with the others. It is the whole programme of meditation techniques which is important and produces the balanced growth.
- mantra meditation, the most fundamental of our practices
- tratak, helps gathering the scattered mind and develop the powers of concentration
- pranayama, or control of breathing sets a rhythm invigorating and purifying our whole system
- gurushakti, gives a sense of deep inner security
