A Quote by Reb Yerachmiel on meditation, spiritual, and kindness

During a retreat on spirituality a woman rose and said: "I have no need of these practices. I feel spiritual all the time without doing anything." Reb Yerachmiel looked at her more than a moment and said: "The next time you have an urge to be spiritual, take a cold shower. Then dry off and do something kind for someone else."

A Quote by Swami Sivananda on meditation, lasting happiness, absolute peace, calm, mind, and concentration

To achieve that state of lasting happiness and absolute peace, we must first know how to calm the mind, to concentrate and go beyond the mind. By turning the mind's concentration inward, upon the self, we can deepen that experience of perfect concentration. This is the state of Meditation.

A Quote by Swami Sivananda on meditation, teach, yogi, mind, and concentrate

The mental ability to concentrate is inherent to all; it is not extraordinary or mysterious. Meditation is not something that a Yogi has to teach you; you already have the ability to shut out thoughts.

A Quote by unknown on meditation

Meditation is a creation in our subconscious mind and it has a beginning but no ending.  it's just a happening by itself.  All you can do is create an environment & circumstance for it.  Further, the fruit, as result of it is enlightenment.  On the other hand, happiness & sorrow are creation in our conscious mind & has beginning & ending which replace each other.

A Quote by Gourasana on control, meditation, calm, peaceful, consciousness, pleasure, emotions, listening, living, and daily life

Practice (...) meditation while you are on the phone; for the entire time that you are on the phone, no matter who you are talking to, regardless or your like or dislike of them, you remain 100 percent in control of your being - which you can only do by controlling your emotions. Do it in a really attentive way. Don't chatter and communicate about anything unimportant. Remember to be constantly listening to everyone you are talking to; listen to the tone of their voice; be in a calm, peaceful, and controlled state. Bring a meditative state and consciousness into your life 24 hours a day, so that you will want to do this meditation for the pleasure it brings.

A Quote by Gourasana on meditation, control, complaining, god, senses, emotions, and people

Stop complaining. Take charge of your life. You need to control the mind and the senses - sharp, alert, awake. Focus your life on God by getting control of your senses. That loss of control of your senses means that you're not going to God. You control your mind with intelligence. Use your brain for control. Hardly anybody is controlling their mind and their emotions, hardly anybody. And because of this, most people are in chaos in one way or another in their lives.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on meditation, wisdom, nirvana, and enlightenment

There is no meditation without wisdom, and there is no wisdom without meditation. When a man has both meditation and wisdom, he is indeed close to nirvana.
