Speaking on joining the Black Lotus team, Amisha said “It is truly an honor to be taking on the role of the Chief Awareness Officer. Having been a user of the Black Lotus meditation app for quite some time now, I must say I’m personally very impressed with the perceivable positivity and kindness acts of thousands of people who are using it. Rarely do you come across an opportunity where you can contribute to the wellbeing of people at scale. And this newly orchestrated team is committed to taking the benefits of meditation with the right techniques to the latitudes and longitudes of the world.”

Currently considered as one of the fastest-growing meditation apps in India, Black Lotus has been worked and researched on for the past six years. Today, the app has been downloaded over 100,000 times and has touched the lives of over 1 million people. Their unique RARE (Reflect-Act-Reinforce-Evaluate) framework brings the rewards of meditation and mindfulness into all aspects of one’s life. With over half a million hours of quality meditation being logged already on the Black Lotus app, the company is now all set to expand its reach in India.

Black Lotus is the brainchild of Om Swami, a monk, expert meditator, and bestselling author of fifteen books including best-sellers like Kundalini: An Untold Story, A Million Thoughts, The Wellness Sense, When All Is Not Well, and If Truth Be Told: A Monk’s Memoir.
Crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic have shown us the importance of virtues like kindness, mental wellness, and agility. Meditation and mindfulness can offer a helpful way to live in times of tremendous stress and uncertainties. With quality meditation, a few minutes every day, the app has proven to elevate users’ consciousness, to sharper memory, calmer mind, more efficiency, reduced stress and even improved sleep.
