Most people feel that collective meditation gives them a deeper meditation. At Dharmachakra, we also sing together using our mantra BABA NAM KEVALAM, and a spiritual discourse is given for inspiration to our spiritual path and growth. BABA NAM KEVALAM is a sanskrit mantra, meaning Love Is All There Is.
