Meditation

  • “Meditation is submergence of mind in its essence.”

 

  • “Meditation is knowing without the need to know.”

 

  • “Why this useless exchange of words? Like armies exchanging bullets! Meditation can be shared only through meditation.”

 

  • “The meditative mind knows all that is essential.”

 

  • “Meditation cannot be explained through words. Meditation can be explained only in meditation. Words are corpses.”

 

  • “Meditation has to be continuous. Like breathing. Unflinching, unhindered, constant, still, stable. And it must be a very dynamic and flexible, lively flow of the right response to the moment.”

 

  • “The right response to the moment is the meditation technique. The right meditation technique can come only from your own meditation.”

 

  • “Meditation and the method for meditation: You get it when you’re not demanding it. And when do you not demand it? When you already have it. So what comes first? The chicken or the egg? Don’t ask silly questions, just meditate!”

 

  • “Awareness is a part of life, meditation is a part of routine, love is a part of relationships. Sure, just as waking up is a part of the dream.”

 

  • “Only a very sharp and meditative mind can see its own limits and stupidity. Dull and mediocre minds have a deep belief in their cleverness.”

 

  • “Meditation is knowing without the need to know.”

 

  • “Meditation cannot be explained through words. Meditation can be explained only in meditation.”

 

  • “What is attention? The determination of mind to understand. What is meditation? That which begins as attention and ends as understanding.”

 

  • “To meditate is to be at a point where parallely two non-events are happening.”

 

  • “No amount of mental activity can ever tell you how to go beyond mind.

    Mentation cannot take you into meditation.”

 

  • “Destiny is real. It comes only to those who ask real questions. Not imaginary stuff- here, there, Brahman, consciousness, evolution. You live your life in petty stuff- money, security, home loan, jealousy, servicing the car, pleasing the boss, spying on the neighbour. So, ask those questions. Those are the real questions. Only in those real questions will you meet something Real, otherwise, you can keep blabbering – pure consciousness, seventh heaven, depths of meditation; flowerings of blissfulness; Hari Om! (Sarcastically)

    “When can I get my paycheck, please?” “Hari Om!”

    “Is my wife seeing somebody else these days?” “Hari Om!””

 

  • “To have no method of meditation is to have an infinite variety of methods.”

 

  • “You must already be in meditation so that you know the right method of meditation. The method cannot come first, meditation comes first.”

 

  • “What comes from a certain point, can be understood only at that point. What comes from a certain depth of meditation, can be understood only at that depth.
    Teacher is expressing thoughtlessness. If you had even a single thought while listening, just tell yourself that you have missed it.”

 

  • “Meditate, knowing that the end result of meditation is already in you.”

 

  • “Meditate in peace, not for the sake of peace”

 

  • “Meditation is that which arises from peace and brings you back to peace.”

 

  • “Energy which is random, disorderly, leaves you with the burden to control it.
    Energy which is an order in itself, contained in the Heart, leaves you with the sureness of an inner power.”
