Lawrence Edward, PhD, founder and director of the Anam Cara Meditation Foundation, has released a new meditation CD, Om Namah Shivaya. The CD includes meditation instructions, chants of the ancient mantra Om Namah Shivaya (“I honor the Auspicious One, the Divine Within”) and chants of world mantras from many traditions. Edwards trained as a monk in India and has been teaching meditation, mindfulness and chanting for 45 years. He is an author, poet, retreat leader and licensed psychotherapist.
The Anam Cara Meditation Foundation is a nonprofit, nondenominational educational organization whose mission is to make meditation teachings and practices available to everyone. It offers retreats, courses and free meditation sessions every second and fourth Thursday at 7:15 p.m. at 2 Byram Brook Place in Armonk, NY.
Edwards’ new CD is designed to support people in their meditative practices, he says. “The mahamantra—the great mantra, Om Namah Shivaya—is a throb of your own divine self. You are the auspicious one, the divine within everyone and everything. Limitless is your power, love and ecstasy. That is your true nature, your true home and refuge. Mantra opens the way for you to abide once again in the truth of who you are, in your state of radical freedom.”
