La meditación es una práctica que todo el mundo puede hacer y no está sujeta a ninguna tradición espiritual en particular. La meditación es una forma de estabilizar y aclarar la mente – se basa en el estado natural de la mente que es calmo y claro. La visión y enseñanzas de meditacón de Shambhala se basan en el "Principio de la Bondad Fundamental", un tesoro que todos tenemos en el corazón, que es la esencia de todos los seres, y está siempre a mano.
Violeta Manoukian ha sido instructora de meditación desde hac tres décadas en Latino América, España, Canadá, y los EE.UU.
