Individual meditation - INDIVIDUAL RETREATS
There are quite a few ways to meditate, but no matter whose path you follow, your own or somebody else’s, there is a general rule: You cannot allow your mind to be restless or agitated. You have to try to make the mind calm and quiet, like the bottom of the Pacific Ocean. This advice all the spiritual Masters will give.
"ALL WE NEED IS TO KEEP QUITE"
The state which transcends speech and thought is MAUNA; it is meditation without mental activity.Silence is ever speaking; it is the perennial flow of “language”. It is interrupted by speaking; for words obstruct this mute“language”.Lectures may entertain individuals for hours without improving them. Silence on the other hand, is permanent and benefits the whole humanity.Silence is unceasing eloquence.It is the best language.
