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.

Perseverance in Our Meditations

Perseverance in Our Meditations

When we sit for daily meditation, we are gaining proficiency and will eventually see the desired results. Sometimes, we may sit day after day, and it appears that we are not making progress. But seeds planted in the ground may not show their stalks for weeks.

We have a responsibility to maintain and preserve the purity and beauty of the soul and its dwelling place. Just as nature can be restored to its original beauty, we can also restore our inner self, and we can put into practice methods to preserve the natural beauty of our soul.

Through meditation, we discover peace and happiness, and we begin to live our lives in a state of calm and equipoise, radiating that peace to others. We will no longer have to pray for peace—we will be peace.
