Meditation Center to open in Forsyth

A meditation center is scheduled to open soon in Monroe County.
FORSYTH, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Nestled away in a secluded area of Forsyth will soon be a place welcoming people of all faiths to meditate.

“He is the only God irrespective of people and their status and blesses them,” said Hindu Priest, Nanjunda Dixit.

An 11 day grand opening and kick off is scheduled to begin May 1, at 5:30 a.m., and continue through May 11, at the SRIM Center, which is located at the end of Julie Lane road in Forsyth.

Each night they will feature a fire ceremony.

The Hindi priest says he follows the same principles and philosophy of humanity from Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and President Abraham Lincoln.

The Hindu priest and many of his Hindu followers chant, praising God and requesting what they want from God.

For nearly thirty years, he taught history at Christ college in Bangalore, India.

"My traditional work, of course it is the priestly work," says Dixit. "It is from generations who are following the same."

The Hindu priest will oversee the 11 day fire ceremony, equipped with a jade statue.

"It has five faces representing the cosmic forces, water, fire, air, and earth. So this has the five faces indicating the existence of humanity," he added. "If you want to live in this world you need all these five things."

Hindu worshiper, R.J. Patel, says the purpose of the meditation center is to help people to focus inward.

"It is about tranquility. We have to find our mind, where it is, stabilize it, make it tranquil so we can be a better person."

During meditation people will be invited to chant, relax, and reflect.
Leslie Schafer is from Yellow Springs, Ohio and says she is ready for an encounter with god.

"I'm here as a divine calling to my heart and soul," says Schafer.
