Meditation Quotes – Video!

When you meditate, what you actually do is to enter into a calm or still, silent mind. We have to be fully aware of the arrival and attack of thoughts.

Then we have to go deep within; there we have to observe our real existence. ~Sri Chinmoy

The so-called transcendental meditation is nothing but a psychological tranquilizer. It is nothing—just a tranquilizer. It helps, but it is good for sleep, not for meditation.

If you repeat a word constantly it creates a certain boredom, and boredom is good for sleep. ~Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

Why do we meditate? We meditate precisely because this world of ours has disappointed us and because failure looms large in our day-to-day life. We want fulfillment. We want joy, peace, bliss and perfection within and without. Meditation is the answer, the only answer. ~Sri Chinmoy

The child is naturally meditative. He is a sort of samadhi; he’s coming out of the womb of existence. His life river is yset absolutely fresh, just from the source.

And he is not separate from his knowledge; he is his knowledge. He has not mind, he has simple being. ~Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
