Swami Prabuddhananda Guided Meditations
Recorded Live at the Vedanta Society of Northern California
VedantaAudio Homepage

These Guided Meditations were recorded live and open to the public. Accordingly, there are brief introductory remarks of varying detail and length that lay a foundation for attendees. The philosophical framework of these sessions is very broad and effortlessly accommodates a range of individual meditation techniques to be practiced within them. 

Each meditation session is about 45 minutes long. There are several periods of silence in which to apply the meditation. The sessions end with "Aum, Shanti. Shanti. Shanti."
