Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- A Conducive Atmosphere
"If a group of happy, easy-going, joyous people come
together, even a person with a morose mind in that group
feels happy. That means that, when the majority of minds
gathered together in one place have the same idea, it
creates a powerful thought vibration in that atmosphere.
When people get together in the name of meditation, they
come for a purpose, so that thought is predominant in
every mind. Even if there are a few people who are able
to do the meditation well, they create a proper atmosphere,
a conducive atmosphere for others to be benefited. Even the
mind that is restless, that finds it difficult to meditate,
can have the benefit of that atmosphere. It was for this
reason that places of prayer, worship and meditation were
created. Otherwise, the divine can be found anywhere and everywhere.
"God bless you. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."

- "When even one virtue becomes our nature, the mind becomes clean and tranquil. Then there is no need to practice meditation; we will automatically be meditating always."
