(by RMS) From March 2015 to June 2020, we hosted meditations and discussions on all talks in Rama's talk series. Our experience is that by re-listening and studying these materials from time to time, we understand more deeply the wisdom Rama has shared with us. Also, when we read a talk at the same time as others interested in Rama's teachings and then meet to meditate and discuss the talk, we gain additional insights on the talk from other students of these teachings.
(by RMS) We are pleased to share virtual and online classes, meditations and gatherings from our friends. During these turbulent times, our sangha is reaching out with these wonderful offerings.
There have been a number of TED talks on meditation, and since TED/TEDx is a platform for NEW ideas worth spreading, I crafted my talk to take the audience into meditation from a different angle, perhaps further than most TED talks on meditation, by introducing a concept of stopping thought - a concept rarely brought up outside of advanced and esoteric meditation circles.
The Rama Meditation Society DVD Channel on Youtube provides a collection of Rama talks recorded on video.
Many of these videos are full-length, where Rama discusses topics such as Health, Enlightenment, Tantric Buddhism, How to Meditate and Stress Reduction.
One of the videos is of Rama meditating in Samadhi to Zazen music - a magical gift!
Fusion Meditation is a series of videos from Integrated Meditation Studies. These videos combine the words of Rama, meditation music by Zazen and photographs of nature.
(by RMS) Meditation Summer will begin its third year on Governors Island with an impressive program of events and speakers. This year’s summer festival will include an exhibit on Meditation & the Brain, some great guest speakers and an open meditation room for participants.

Enjoy Pound Ridge - a wonderful place of power that Rama took his friends and students to.
(by Dawn G) Something special happens when a group gathers at a place of power at a time of power (summer solstice) with the same purpose of going beyond ourselves to expand awareness.
(by Nili S.) In September 2014 my sister came to visit. She wanted to see a photography exhibit, mounted at Governor’s Island, and so we found ourselves at this magic place we never knew about.
Governor’s Island used to be an army base, which was taken over by NYC Parks Department about 10 years ago. Art, dance, music and more are offered in a beautiful Island that includes bike trails, picnic areas and amazing vistas of downtown Manhattan, Jersey City, Brooklyn and the Statue of Liberty.
