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.

Meditation is an Effortless Effort

When we meditate, we should pray to God to show us and give us whatever God thinks is best for us. We should sit lovingly as if we were an empty cup that is open so God can pour divine Nectar into us.

Nonviolence in Thought

Nonviolence is an important virtue we must inculcate to grow spiritually. It requires that we not injure any living creature either in thought, word, or deed. When it comes to violence in thought, criticizing others is one of the most common forms.

Cycles of the Soul

The knowledge of our true self is buried, like a diamond buried deep within the earth. We can uncover it through meditation.
