We are a longstanding spiritual community held together by our love for Advaita, a spiritual and philosophical tradition of self-realization, and for each other. The center is led by dedicated members and supported entirely by volunteers. Learn more about our organization.
The center began in Boston in 1970 as the Philosophy Foundation, was incorporated as an educational nonprofit in 1976, established connections with the Sringeri Sharada Peetham India in 2005 and became the Advaita Meditation Center in 2008.
It is a time-honored practice, common to many spiritual and religious traditions, that involves allowing the mind to rest and the attention to focus on a single subject. It has many helpful benefits. Learn more.
We teach several different forms of meditation, but our main approach emphasizes mantra meditation—which begins by meditating on a silently repeating sound. Learn more.
We have assembled a wealth of informational resources to introduce you to the principles of Advaita. Learn more.
You can choose among a variety of meditation offerings, including open meditation evenings, weekly practice and discussion groups and other activities. Learn more.
Our teachers are themselves students who have spent many years learning and sharing on the path to self-realization. They volunteer at the center out of their love for the spiritual journey and the enjoyment of teaching and sharing what they’ve learned.
