"Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have."
- Laya Defined -
A place of rest, abode, making the mind inactive, a state of mental quietude. It means dissolution, rest, repose. The presence of identity, of ego, of individuality is undisturbed by LAYA. In the natural `destruction' of the mind, the way and the seeker both disappear totally, in the silence, the fullness that is the Self. No tendency survives. Identity itself is lost. LAYA is a state in which the mind is calm, unperturbed, free of thoughts.
At Laya, we've got a wide range of services that can be tailored just for you. We're passionate about holistic problem-solving and healing.
