True meditation…


Meditation is your true state…now. You call it meditation, because there are other thoughts distracting you. When these thoughts are dispelled, you remain alone, i.e., in the state of meditation free from thoughts; and that is your real nature which you are now attempting to gain by keeping away other thoughts. Such keeping away of other thoughts is now called meditation. When the practice becomes firm, the real nature shows itself as the true meditation.

  1. Very interesting! So, the question arises, from this statement, ‘Is meditation the means to the end or the end itself!!!!’ I opt for the former but it does not really matter as this is simply purely academic!
