The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it's not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person--without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They...

Meditation is nothing but a bridge between you and light. Then darkness is just a river, it goes flowing underneath the bridge; you can move to the world of light. And the essential core of meditation is very simple: it is to be a witness of your mind process, not to be identified with the mind processes -- thoughts, desires, imaginations, projections, dreams, memories and so on and so forth -- not to be...

Don’t be angry at life. It is not life that is frustrating you, it is you who are not listening to life. Life is not logic, life is not philosophy. Life is a dance, a song, a celebration! Celebration is my attitude, unconditional to what life brings~!!

Oh Divine Universe, gather together to form one great ball of light and allow it to come forth with my Divinity. Let the power surge of energy enter my center core and rejuvenate all that is ailing. That which I can see and feel and that which I cannot. Let it mend cell by cell, getting rid of what is toxic to my human form and its tissue. Let each beam of energy run fierce through my veins and purify them,...

I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing~!!

The inner voyage or the internal trip is like space travel. We cannot undertake space travel carrying a heavy load. Whether it is travelling in inner or outer space, we must shed our weight, of the body and of the senses. Our senses are subjected to a heavy burden. First we must shed our weight. We must abandon the load with which our body and the senses are afflicted. For the inner voyage, one has to ride the...

The world of emotions is our inner world. Man is what his emotions are. Everything depends on the emotions. So purification of emotions is an important element in the building of personality. Anger, pride, greed and deceit are derivative passions and balancing and purifying them is necessary. It can be done through preksha-dhyan. ~Acharya Mahapragya

Preksha Dhyan practises balance the endocrine system. A number of students who were extremely fearful got rid of their fear by meditating on the 'taijas kendra' or center of bioelectricity.

He too by following the same practice, completely overcame his...

Most people assume that meditation is all about stopping thoughts, getting rid of emotions, somehow controlling the mind, but actually it’s much different. “It’s more about stepping back, seeing the thought clearly - witnessing it coming and going - without judgment, but with a relaxed, focus mind~!!

There are four states of consciousness - waking, sleeping, dreaming and meditative states. During sleep we get good rest but no awareness. We just feel refreshed when we wake up, but we cannot recall anything that happened while we were sleeping. Meditation, however, is resting with awareness. “Wakefulness and sleep are like sunrise and darkness. Dream is like the twilight in between and meditation is like...

One may ask how do I know what is right and what is wrong? Well, the soul always knows it, and guides us too! What we have to do is be aware of the presence of our soul inside. Believe me, you can listen to it. But to be able to listen to your inner Self takes a lot of practice, and this practice is best known as meditation. So I believe including this very practice of listening to the soul in our daily life,...

When a man changes from within, he also changes outward­ly. Let us thoroughly grasp the fact that no change can occur in man at the level of thoughts. If he could change through intellectual understanding, a man would undergo a transformation alter listen­ing to one discourse. But it does not happen. The question arises, why? The, reason is that we are too much dependent on thought, on ideas, and have little...

Calmness is very important in religious life, but it also plays a significant role in practical life. Many people live together in a family.

The greatest principle of spiritual life is the practice of Equanimity. We can achieve equanimity through balanced breathing - neither the left nor the right respiratory cycle being exclusively activated. Both the right and the left respiratory cycles equally active, lead to equanimity. If the right cycle is more active, it would produce greater anger, tension and aggressive mentality. If, on the other hand,...

A man on average takes 15 breaths per minute. When a person is inflamed by anger, the number of breaths increases to 20-25-30. The more intense the anger, the greater is the increase in the rate of breathing; at times it rises to 35-40 breaths per minute. It reaches a stage where the heart is affected. All our blood is turned into poison. The chemistry of the body is altogether disturbed. Anger causes an...

I often ask people: Is non-violence good? Is non-possession good? Do you have any experience of them? The answer I got is, that so far as experience is concerned, they have not had it ever. I then ask them, “Then, how can you say that non-violence and non-possession are good? Prompt comes the reply: “We believe it because that particular scripture says so.” This compels us to conclude that such religious...

Every religious person swears by scriptures, be they the Gita, the Agams, the Pitaks, the Quran, or the Bible.

That is, the one who thinks about an idea for a long period of time and...
