It is with great pleasure and utmost humility that I present this 12-part guided meditation program. I have conducted this program over a thousand times for countless people. Over the past decade, I have constantly refined it. This program has proven, time and again, to be a simple and affordable way, even for people that have never practiced meditation before, to attain the same inner peace, joy and happiness that I have obtained through meditation.
The numerous people who have benefited from this program, have for many years, requested me to offer this program on CD. However, it was only after my dear friend and fellow meditation practitioner, Rohinton Maloo, was tragically killed in the Mumbai terrorist attack in November 2008, that I decided to put the program on CD and dedicate it to his memory.
I hope you enjoy this program as much as I did producing it. This program should help you harness the incredible power of meditation to help you achieve the inner peace, joy and happiness that you seek.
Om Shanti Om,
Malcolm J. Gomes

The power of meditation CD series offers window into peace, tranquility
By Jennifer Pellegrini
“Realize that the same life source that takes care of all of the same creatures that it created, is also our own life source. And so, just as it takes care of all of the other creatures it created, it will also take care of us if we only trust in it, if we only have faith in it, if we only let it.”
Malcolm Gomes’ voice is otherworldly as it seeps through the speakers. He speaks scarcely above a whisper as New Age music plays softly in the background. The clip from his meditation CD is brief—a fraction of the 46-minute complete session which focuses on healing—but within that time, Gomes has opened a floodgate of calm that washes over his listener. Gomes considers it his calling to bring the peace that he enjoys in his life to others. But he was not always so focused on tranquility.
Born in Mumbai, India, Gomes was on the fast-track to a powerful career as a marketing executive when he left his homeland for Dubai in 1981, and then Canada 15 years later. It was a high-flying existence, but even in his 20s, Gomes’ stress soared as high as his executive paycheck.
“I had the ability to do the job, but not the maturity to handle that level of stress,” he says. “I was told I was going down the road of ‘karōshi’—the word for young Japanese executives who die of stress in their late 30s or early 40s.” A decade ago, the stress caught up with Gomes. In 2000, he was diagnosed with blepharospasm, an uncontrollable eye spasm that would eventually lead to blindness.
“That was like a splash of cold water in my face,” says Gomes. He had two young children and was not prepared to accept the doctor’s prognosis. Instead, he turned to a life-long friend in Mumbai, Rohinton Maloo, who recommended Gomes try meditation to lower his stress level. Gomes delved into the ancient practice deeply and, within two years, he had reversed the effect of the so called “incurable” disease.
“In 2002, it struck me that this was incredibly powerful,” Gomes says. “If this can work for what doctors say is an incurable condition, think of what it can do for other people.” Gomes and Maloo pored over Hindu holy books to get what he calls the “true essence” of meditation. Gomes also relied on Maloo’s family, which has practiced meditation for generations.
Convinced that bringing their knowledge to the mass market would be a boon for overstressed North Americans, Gomes and Maloo began working on a series of CDs for people to use in the privacy of their own homes.
Maloo didn’t live to see the dream come to fruition—he was killed in the 2008 terrorist attack in Mumbai—but Gomes moved forward and today his CDs are available at Costco in Canada, and also through his Website, www.meditationoncds.com.
In addition to his consulting work, Gomes continues to help people in his Toronto, Ontario-area community with meditation sessions several nights a week. Proceeds from the sale of CDs are being used to build a facility in India named in honor of Maloo, which will offer free meditation services to anyone who needs it.
“This ancient art form saved me from going blind. The least I can do is try to help people around the world,” Gomes says.
