Meditation Quotations

Meditation is not to escape from society, but to come back to ourselves and see what is going on. Once there is seeing, there must be acting. With mindfulness, we know what to do and what not to do to help.

~ Thich Nhat Hanh


“Dzogchen takes the struggle out of meditation… it is spacious, natural and relaxing.”

~ Lama Surya Das


Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in Eternal awareness or Pure consciousness without objectification, knowing without thinking, merging finitude in infinity.

~ Sivananda


Meditation is from moment to moment. The eyes see, the ears hear. The organs function. There is no interiorisation, no concentration, no introversion, no withdrawing of the sense. Don’t go into the old habits of withdrawal. Go in the directionless expansion, the spaceless space.

~ Jean Klein


“When we raise ourselves through meditation to what unites us with the spirit, we quicken something within us that is eternal and unlimited by birth and death. Once we have experienced this eternal part in us, we can no longer doubt its existence. Meditation is thus the way to knowing and beholding the eternal, indestructible, essential center of our being.”

~ Rudolf Steiner


Meditation is the tongue of the soul and the language of our spirit.
