Prayer and Meditation
Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj
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.
