In loving service,
- Learning to be still and calm should not be made a ceremony or a part
of any religion; it is a universal requirement of the human body.
When one learns to sit still, he or she attains a kind of joy that is
The highest of all joys that can ever be attained or experienced by a
human being can be attained through meditation. All the other joys in
the world are transient and momentary, but the joy of meditation is
immense and everlasting.
Meditation and Its Practice
- The Sanskrit word for "action" is "karma," derived from the
root "kri" which means "to do."
One does action and gets remunerated for it, in turn transferring
this remuneration to others for work done by them.
Thus, fruit has arisen out of action, and action out of fruit. From
time immemorial, life has been conducted in this manner. This is
called the wheel of karma.
To act with the motive of gaining fruits is to invite bondage.
Relinquishing the fruits frees us from all miseries.
Freedom from the Bondage of Karma
- In your meditation today....
May your body be still and comfortable....
May your head, neck and trunk be aligned....
May your breath be smooth, slow, serene, with no pauses....
May the flow of thoughts in your mind not disturb you....
May your meditation today bring you peace, happiness, and bliss....
In loving service,
