Bringing Freedom

To The Men Behind Bars

Through Meditation, Yoga, 

and Truth Principles

Hello spiritual travelers. We are SamadhiDev and Lalla. Thank you so much for making your way to our Patreon page. We are really excited to bring you into our Prison Freedom Project.  

We know YOU can't just leave work, family, and your obligations for two hours each week to sit in meditation with the men who are behind bars...

... but we really enjoy doing it. Each Friday we drive two hours round trip to the Boyd Unit in Teague, which is right outside Fairfield Texas. Every week is a different program which may include: Yoga. Meditation. Discourse. Pranayama. Q&A. Written Projects.  & Chanting. We (SamadhiDev and Lalla) have been bringing mystic wisdom from Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Sufism, and Judaism to the monks (minimum security inmates) since November 2015. 

A lot of people like to tithe to a "church" where they receive their spiritual nourishment... your donation to our Patreon program helps assure that we can continue to bring this "church" service to these monks. In return you know that your contribution went directly to the programs that are making a huge difference in these guys life.

Patrons at all levels receive access to level specific rewards + all previous level rewards

We are omni-denominational and dedicated to exposing the universal truth of ONENESS in all religions and paths. We are very grateful for people who are willing to help fortify us and be a part of who we are and what we do. Your support means the world to us!

Letters from the monks at Boyd
*****************************************************************************

I finally understand Samadhi. I arrived at it three times, during our practice, and I haven’t been the same ever since. Whatever happened to me, followed me into the next day. I’m noticing things that never made an impression on me before. Small things seem wonderful. This morning, without any meditational effort on my part, I looked out the window and saw the rain falling, some birds flying, the wind blowing, and the trees swaying, simultaneously, all in the same moment of time, and it captivated me. I experienced Samadhi all over again. It feels like some huge spiritual door has been opened to me, because of what I experienced as a result of our practice yesterday. Thank you. (See Article "Spiritual Rebellion">>) --Chad B. 12/3/16 Boyd Unit, TDCJ, Prison Ministry

For 38 years I was looking for God, seeking the Source, not realizing I was looking at him the whole time in a mirror. Now I have vanished. Living in divine nature, seeing you in divine nature, this is the truth. I have so much to say and nothing to say at the same time. These words were already embedded into our hearts at the beginning of time, just expressed or said differently. Sit and be still, listen to your mind, that’s the Source calling like an echo on a mountain top. Can you hear it? Ye are gods! Yes, you, him, her, every atom, we are all connected. Why is it so hard for people to grasp the concept? --T. Ruiz (God #2) 10/4/16 Boyd Unit, TDCJ, Prison Ministry

Going to prison has a way of helping you find your spirituality. A friend invited me to the Buddha service and I said “why not”. After only a month of practicing my breathing exercises and my meditations, I’ve discovered that my entire spiritual journey was meant to lead me here. The mindfulness I’ve developed in my Buddha services has really awakened a more conscious side of me to fully live in the moment and be entirely aware of life has now become the only way I choose to live. --Esteban A. 9/14/16 Boyd Unit, TDCJ, Prison Ministry

Your teachings have helped me let go of a lot of things I did not know I was holding onto: anger, frustration, resentment, also, self-hatred, et.al. The meditations I have learned in this satsang have eased my anxiety so I can actually focus on reading and learning, which I couldn't do before without drugs, this is really huge! --Rodney K. 7/20/16 Boyd Unit, TDCJ, Prison Ministry

"I'm not in prison no more"....I’m close to something, I believe it’s God wanting me to wake up. I’m trying to increase my meditation time practice. Things are moving fast for me, yet with a calmness from within. I look forward to our next encounter. Life Is Beautiful...“Just enjoying this magical place” --Danny I. 7/19/16 Boyd Unit, TDCJ, Prison Ministry

I have discovered the power and beauty of bliss. In fact, in discovering how to be free anywhere and putting it in the perspective of: FREEDOM being a ‘mental state of being’, I’m not really looking forward to being paroled. This is the best place, the best circumstance I could put myself in to get a handle on identifying and eradicating all attachment. --Douglas O. 5/15/16 Boyd Unit, TDCJ, Prison Ministry

Deep in the middle of the ocean of the mind there is no pollution. It is absolutely pure. That part is always content, it never likes or dislikes, it accepts everything; it is not proud and this is the true nature of yourself. The highest purpose we have in the life is to recognize our own awareness of Being as the universal self which has become everyone. (See Article "Who Am I?">>) --Kristofer S. 3/23/16 Boyd Unit, TDCJ, Prison Ministry

Goals
$4 of $100 per month
Our first goal of $100 per month pays for the immediate expenses to travel 100 miles round trip each Friday to bring this liberating opportunity to the Boyd monks. It is a very small price to pay to bring them their favorite two hours of each week.
