Helping the Individual

The spiritual path does not need to be difficult or cumbersome. You will find obstacles, which is good. The greatest teacher in life is obstacles. So every obstacle that comes in your path, be thankful. One way to be thankful to obstacles is to become the observer of the obstacle. When you become the observer of the obstacle, the obstacle does not hurt you.

It is by reaching that changeless, eternal self within yourself that all the obstacles and changes of life do not matter. For as long as you have the body and a little conscious mind, all these ups and downs will be there. But if you develop the inner strength through meditation, you become the observer of the ups and downs. And when you become the observer or the witness, you remain unharmed. And life becomes pleasant. Is that not what you seek?

We Train you to Become a Certified Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher

Our teacher training program has been running since 1976 and we provide you with a deeo experiential and practical understanding of the various meditation techniques and spiritual practices that form the basis of all wisdom paths

Our Philosophy

AMS meditation practices have helped me focus my desire for constant and conscious meeting with the Divine. My experience with meditation previously had been a confusion of Eastern and Western ideas that were stuck in my head. Now I have a stable and unified path that extends into the far reaches of my heart. I appreciate the peace and the clarity I’ve found. I am more open to continuously re-framing my life in the material world as my spiritual consciousness expands to meet All of Life.

Our Founder

Gururaj was born and raised Parsotam Narshi Bhana in India. He lived most of his life beyond age 20 in Cape Town, South Africa. From age 44 until his demise, which he predicted, at age 56, he devoted himself to teaching groups of people, amounting to tens of thousands of students, the art of personalised meditation, mindfulness and life transforming yogas. His teaching continues in abundance through various channels in approximately 12 countries, thus far. The vast teaching contained in thousands of pages of transcribed talks and various recordings has continued, after Gururaj’s passing, because of the devotion of many of his chelas (close followers).

During 12 years of non-stopping tours he answered to thousands of questions of people from all walks of life. These satsangs and other private gatherings between him and his disciples were duly recorded and around 3,000 hours of superb teachings capable to bring you insight, comfort and understanding in your spiritual path are being made available worldwide.
