When it comes to meditation
Imagine the radiating sun,
And try to radiate like the sun,
Never ceasing, day or night.
What is meditation -
Sri Chinmoy writes -
"Meditation is a divine gift. Meditation simplifies our outer life and energises our inner life. Meditation gives us a natural and spontaneous life."
Meditation leads not only to totally new inner experiences, but helps transform our day-to-day life into a happier, more meaningful and more fulfilling existence.
Sri Chinmoy continues:
"When we meditate, what we actually do is enter into a vacant, calm, still and silent mind. We go deep within and approach our true existence, which is our soul".
"Meditation is something wide and vast that ultimately expands into the Infinite. When we meditate, we throw ourselves into a vast expanse, into an infinite sea of peace, or we welcome the infinite Vastness into us. Meditation spreads. Meditation is constantly growing and expanding into peace, light and delight. When we meditate, we gradually see, feel and grow into the entire universe of light."
Sri Chinmoy's meditative philosophy is called the 'path of heart,' the heart here refering to our 'pshysic' or spiritual heart. The spiritual heart is that higher part of our consciousness flooded with silence, dynamism, love, compassion and wisdom. By concentrating on this region during our meditations we can gradually bring forward deeper spiritual qualities that illumine our entire consciousness from within.
