Looking Inward

Meditating to Survive in A Changing World

Swami Purnachaitanya
Select Preferred Format

The world as we know it in 2021 is worse than we have known in our time on earth. Global warming, a pandemic, information spreading like wildfires, fake news, riots, changing social structures and lifestyles…the ramifications of these events affect our health, productivity, and most importantly, leave a lasting impact on our inner peace.
It is in times like these that the human brain could feel stressed, acutely anxious and even depressed. And it is now more than ever that we need to look inward for strength, focus, happiness and resilience.
In this book, Swami Purnachaitanya helps you on your journey towards finding the source of your anxiety, stress and restlessness, using meditation to soothe distracted thoughts and refocus your energy to being fully present in a moment to better manage your mind. Every chapter includes Wisdom Sutras and a ten-minute exercise that will take you one step closer to building your own meditation practise.
The idea is to acknowledge the changing outside world while strengthening your inner energy reserves to better cope with it. Today, meditation is not a luxury, it is a necessity. Looking Inward is your personal guide to understanding your mind and the need to meditate for a healthier, happier and well-adjusted life.
