Joy of Meditation

Meditation Quotes

 

When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a lamp in a windless place. In the still mind, in the depths of meditation, the eternal Self reveals itself.
Bhagavad Gita

 
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

 
Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance.
Gautama Buddha

 
When a seeker merges in the beatitude of samadhi, he does not perceive time and space or name and form, the offspring of maya.
Ramakrishna

 
Don't seek experiences in meditation. The path to God is not a circus.
Paramahansa Yogananda

 
Cry Within. Meditate within. Dive within. Your inner achievements will far outweigh your outer imperfections.
Sri Chinmoy

 
Meditation is the tongue of the soul and the language of our spirit.
Jeremy Taylor

GENEROSITY

Mahatma Gandhi went from city to city, village to village collecting funds for the Charkha Sangh.
During one of his tours he addressed a meeting in Orissa. After his speech a poor old woman got up. She was bent with age, her hair was grey and her clothes were in tatters. The volunteers tried to stop her, but she fought her way to the place where Gandhiji was sitting. "I must see him," she insisted and going up to Gandhiji touched his feet.
Then from the folds of her sari she brought out a copper coin and placed it at his feet. Gandhiji picked up the copper coin and put it away carefully.
The Charkha Sangh funds were under the charge of Jamnalal Bajaj. He asked Gandhiji for the coin but Gandhiji refused. "I keep cheques worth thousands of rupees for the Charkha Sangh," Jamnalal Bajaj said laughingly "yet you won't trust me with a copper coin."
"This copper coin is worth much more than those thousands," Gandhiji said. "If a man has several lakhs and he gives away a thousand or two, it doesn't mean much. But this coin was perhaps all that the poor woman possessed. She gave me all she had. That was very generous of her. What a great sacrifice she made. That is why I value this copper coin more than a crore of rupees."
