      Just Watch the Mind
      "In meditation you fix the mind on one point.
      You have to try, continuously, to keep the
      vision in your mind; or, if you are utilizing
      a mantra, then you repeat it continuously.
      Still, the mind will try to run here and there.
      When the mind runs away and you are conscious
      of it, try to bring it back again. Sometimes,
      without your knowledge, the mind goes off, and
      you follow it. After ten or fifteen minutes,
      you suddenly realize, `Oh, where am I?' That
      itself is a very good meditation. You just
      watch your own mind and allow the mind to go
      about while you watch. Then, slowly, you will
      see the running about calming down, and the
      mind will gradually become pure.

      "God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
