Spiritual Quotes on Meditation

  • Drop the mind. That is meditation. - Osho
  • In every trial, Let understanding fight for you. – Buddha
  • Meditation is the understanding of the whole structure of the ‘me’, the self, the ego, and whether it is possible to be totally free of the self, not seek some super-self. The super-self is still the self. So meditation is something which is not a cultivated, determined, activity. – Jiddu Krishnamurti
  • Meditation has to become your life twenty-four hours a day; then only the transformation. - Osho
  • In meditation one is to become a detached witness of the mind and its processes…a detached witness – Swami Rajneesh
  • Do not let pleasure distract you
    From meditation, from the way.
    Free yourself from pleasure and pain. – Buddha
  • Meditation requires you to drop the bodymind completely
    growing the flame of awareness. - Swami Rajneesh
  • Your mind is a constant traffic of thoughts, and it is always rush hour, day in, day out. Meditation means to watch the movement of thoughts in the mind. - Osho
  • When you give up thinking of outward objects and prevent your mind from going outwards by turning it inwards and fixing it in the Self, the Self alone remains. – Ramana Maharshi
  • being aware of awareness itself
    only consciousness can get you there
    to the truth of yourself
    the immortal inner being – Swami Rajneesh
  • Meditation is not mind, and mind cannot create meditation. Meditation is getting out of the mind, becoming a watcher of the mind, witnessing all the stuff that goes through the mind — the desires, imaginations, thoughts, dreams, all that goes on in the mind. You become simply a witness. Slowly slowly, this witnessing becomes stronger, becomes more centered, rooted. And suddenly you understand one thing: that you are one with the witnessing, not with the mind; that the mind is as much outside you as anything else. - Osho
  • Setting apart time for meditation is only for the merest spiritual novices. A man who is advancing will begin to enjoy the deeper beatitude whether he is at work or not. - Ramana Maharshi
