Human Mind Universe Mind

What is Meditation?

Meditation is changing human mind to universe mind and thus is being reborn as the body and mind of the universe. If you are reborn as the Universe you will eternally never die.


Is there anything in the world that is as important as living forever?

The human mind is a picture that man has taken of the world, and his self lives inside that picture. Therefore, if you get rid of that world of pictures, you become the Universe Mind. It is necessary to be born as the Truth which is the body and mind of the universe in order to live eternally.

Main Center & Local Centers


Meditation Around the World

This meditation’s Main Center is located in South Korea and there are many local centers all around the world.

As of January 2013, a total of 336 local centers are in operation to help people throw away their false mind to become Truth, to achieve human completion.

Nonsan Main Center

When Woo Myung first taught people the method to become Truth, he instructed once a month. With the passage of time, more and more people became involved and thus he increased the frequency of instructions. When hundreds of people got involved in his teaching, he decided to open a center for them so they could meditate together in a group for better meditation. The main center was first established in Daegu City and moved to Nonsan City in 2001 as a larger place was required to accommodate more people. The main center is in operation every day throughout the year, purely for the benefit of the practitioners – to achieve human completion as soon as possible, which is Woo Myung’s all time intention.

This meditation Main Center is located at the foot of Mount Gyeryong National Park in Nonsan City, a city in the West region of South Korea. This is the headquarters of this Meditation Institution, where people all over the world gather and intensively practice the method of subtraction, which is indeed the fastest track to Truth.

Local Centers

Later on, Woo Myung decided to open centers in the local areas as not all people who were willing to become Truth could always attend the instructions at the main center. As Woo Myung’s only intention has been to bring as many people as possible to Truth, he did not forget those people who had to return to their local areas due to unavoidable responsibilities. In addition, the method to become Truth could spread faster and more widely if the centers were established in local areas around the world.

All the local centers are also in operation 365 days throughout the year from early morning to late night in order to accommodate the people so they can more easily achieve human completion. Throughout the world, more than 40,000 people have been actively involved in the movement for human completion, following Woo Myung’s teaching.

This meditation teachers’ training course is essential to educators who play a leading role in guiding students to become righteous people. This course is held every summer and winter vacation, for a period of 1 week. The course only covers up to level 1, and thus teachers find their true selves within a week.

The Meditation Teachers’ Association is in charge of the training course for teachers, and they strongly believe that the happy minds of teachers and students are the foundation of personality education.

Teachers come to see all students as equally valuable and are able to lead a class more harmoniously and peacefully. Upon completion of the training course, teachers become happier, more open-minded, and more responsible individuals, which in turn positively affects the general class environment and learning in environment for students.

  Meditation Programs
University students’ camp was first held in July 2004. It was and still is a one-week course for undergraduate and postgraduate students. It covers level 1 of the this meditation program and the students can continue with their meditation afterwards upon their discretion. University students, who often have worries and insecurities about their futures, become free from such concerns as they learn the method of discarding.

Not only do they become free of stress but they confirm their true self. Therefore, it helps them to set the proper direction for their life. Meditation university students’ camp guides them to lead a life full of wisdom and courage.

The students are especially cared for by experienced knowledgeable meditation instructors and open-mined volunteers who also attended the camp previously and completed the whole program. Even after completing the course in the camp, they continue their activities of subtracting the mind at this meditation club at their universities. Therefore, they receive ongoing guidance and support to become a healthy, righteous and successful member of society.

In addition, some universities, including Sungshin Women’s Univ, Gangwon National Univ, and Dongshin Univ, have adopted this meditation as a general education subject. It is a very popular subject showing students’ demand for emptying out their minds. When the subject is open for enrollment, it closes very quickly as the classes are filled to the maximum capacity. As students learn the method to become Truth and receive continuous guidance throughout the semester, they truly find the purpose of life and start to perceive their life to be meaningful. They would love to re-enroll in the subject in the following semester.

Meditation Method

meditation levels

This meditation teaches how to cleanse falseness – the pictures of past memories – which we have accumulated through our self-centered experiences. It teaches us that we are the false minded illusions and that our bodies and minds must be cleansed. Then it teaches us to cleanse the universe in our delusional minds so that we can know and become Truth. From start to finish, this meditation is a place that focuses only on cleansing oneself. When one cleanses his self and everything in the universe, only the pure universe, Truth remains. This meditation is the place, where one is reborn as the body and mind of the pure universe and goes to heaven where life and death are one; it is the place to deny and cleanse the self; it is the place to cleanse the self because you can only be reborn as Truth when you are cleansed.


Level 1: Throwing away remembered thoughts

Level 2: Throwing away images of myself, images of human relationships, and myself

Level 3: Throwing away my body

Level 4: Throwing away my body and the universe

Level 5: Throwing away my body and the universe

Level 6: Self disappears by subtraction and becomes the Universe

Level 7: Throwing away the illusionary world of pictures and myself living inside that world


When you reflect upon yourself, you will see how self-centered and hypocritical you really are. When you truly throw away your self-centered and hypocritical self, you will be Truth, and there will be the world of Truth.

This meditation is the place to cleanse both body and mind to become Truth. As it is cleansed of falseness, your mind becomes clear and true, and thus, it becomes more comfortable. Because all illnesses are caused by the mind, there are many cases where people are cured from their illnesses and become healthier after practicing this mediation. This meditation exists in order to make human completion possible for everyone. Anyone can become a saint, know the flow of nature, and go to the forever-living heaven where life and death are one while living.

This meditation is the place where the ultimate purpose of mankind’s existence can be achieved.
