Meditation and more
“Try to live in a group and see how you can fit into it.”
Strengthening the Practice
Coming together in a group strengthens us in our practice and in the decision to express goodwill in daily life. Individually, we are not as strong as in the community of like-minded people. And individuals with a certain degree of accomplishment can help others to link-up with the Light.
When we are alone at home, we more easily give way to the tendencies of our personality and we find it more difficult to follow the exercises. A stable group can neutralise the individual irritations.
Accepting responsibility for a group, the rhythm of regular gatherings and the purity of focus is an important service activity. Every one who actively contributes strengthens the group.

A Joint Aspiration
The rhythm and structure for meditations, study of wisdom teachings, living together and exchange was set by Dr. E. Krishnamacharya and further continued by Dr. K. Parvathi Kumar. The groups choose their way of group living and pick up the practices which suit best their joint aspiration.
The examples given here illustrate the meditational activities of different groups. You find proposals for meditations and other spiritual practices on the pages about Meditation.
Meditation and Study
The groups regularly meet for meditation and for study of the wisdom teachings. In some groups there are classes/courses with lectures of experienced members on different topics such as the teachings of the WTT, the etheric world, Secret Doctrine or astrology.
Some groups also meet on special occasions like the seasonal festivals of the solstices and equinoxes or other festivals. On these days, some bigger groups organise one-day or weekend seminars.
Furthermore, some groups meet to celebrate the May Call and December Call Days or the birthdays of great spiritual teachers, who inspire through their being.
Some group members also join the festivals and rituals conducted by Dr. K. Parvathi Kumar via live transmission.
Meditations for healing purposes are held on Thursdays or on 11th moon phases. Some members combine it with visits to sick people at their homes or hospitals to give them emotional support.
Committed members also join on Sunday morning for the Global Prayer for Peace.
Some give support for dying people by doing prayers of forgiveness and thanksgiving. This way the souls can detach more easily and leave their bodies.
In many groups it is a good tradition to conclude some meetings by having lunch or dinner together. This strengthens the bond of cordiality.
Free Group Decisions
These are some examples of meditational group activities. The individual groups decide themselves about their rhythm and work, depending on the dedication of the members.
All activities are free of cost or just at cost price for expenses fixed by the group. No rules are imposed.
Every group is a challenge to see people with different temperaments and personalities as a completion. In a group, there happens a grouping of personalities, so that the one consciousness working through the entire group can be experienced.
