Prayer and Meditation

Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj

August 17, 2020

When we sit still and keep our mind still, we have discovered the key to meditation. In that state of meditation, all prayers are answered. For what is it that we ultimately pray? The end result of our prayers is happiness, peace, and bliss.

We may think that the attainments of the world hold the answer to our search for happiness. Yet the happiness we seek in worldly attainments is not lasting. Through meditation we attain permanent bliss— we are filled with waves of divine love, peace, and joy. In that state, what is left for which we need to pray? Through meditation, the happiness we sought in outer possessions is now ours; we have everything and require nothing more.

When our prayers end in a silent devotional yearning for union, without words, without thoughts, we have reached the highest form of prayer, which is meditation.

The Power of Loving-Kindness

The Power of Loving-Kindness

Part of our spiritual progress is based on developing a kind spirit. To do this, we need to put ourselves in the shoes of others. It means feeling the joys and pains of others. We can ask ourselves if the words we say to others are the words we want others to say to us.

Why Do We Need to Empower Our Soul?

Why Do We Need to Empower Our Soul?

The soul has become lost in the world of mind, matter, and illusion. Empowering the soul means that we withdraw the power that the mind and senses have on us so that our soul can instead control and guide our life.

Giving Back to the Earth

Giving back to our planet means that when we take food from it, we sustain the land so that it can continue to give food. The vegetarian diet symbolizes our respect for the earth. We can conserve earth’s resources by living on a vegetarian diet.
