Alone let him constantly meditate in solitude on that which is salutary for his soul, for he who meditates in solitude attains supreme bliss.

-Guru Nanak

 

“Meditation helps you to grow your own intuitive faculty. It becomes very clear what is going to fulfil you, what is going to help you flower.”

If we know the divine art of concentration, if we know the divine art of meditation, if we know the divine art of contemplation, easily and consciously we can unite the inner world and the outer world.

Meditation is painful in the beginning but it bestows immortal Bliss and supreme joy in the end.

“When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a lamp in a windless place.”

Bhagavad Gita

 

“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of mediation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what hold you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom.”

-Buddha

 

“Health, a light body, freedom from cravings, a glowing skin, sonorous voice, fragrance of body: these signs indicate progress in the practice of meditation.”

- Shvetashvatara Upanishad

 

“If you meditate, sooner or later you will come upon love. If you meditate deeply, sooner or later you will start feeling a tremendous love arising in you that you have never known before”.
