Mindfulness and Meditation: Hindu Vendanta Tradition

Join Swami Sunishthananda for personal interviews, meditation instruction, and spiritual guidance.

Swami Sunishthananda is a Chaplain at RMIT University where he shares the insights of his tradition on campus through guided prayer and meditation, study of spiritual texts, and informal discussions. Swami makes himself available for personal interviews, meditation instruction, and spiritual guidance.

Mindfulness is a very popular practice today in the West. While its origins in the Buddhist meditation practices of Zen and Vipassana are acknowledged, the rich traditions of meditation and mindfulness in the Vedic tradition are not much known. One such practice of mindfulness, the asparsa-yoga, has been conceptualised and practiced in the tradition of Advaita Vedanta.
