"Dear children, when you sit for meditation, do not think that you can still your mind immediately. At first, you should relax all parts of your body. Loosen your clothes if they are too tight. Make sure that the spine is erect. Then close your eyes and concentrate your mind on your breath. You should be aware of your inhalation and exhalation. We should become aware of the process. Then the mind will be wakeful. As you sit like that for a while, your mind will become calm. You can continue the meditation by focusing attention on your breath. Or you can start meditation on the form of your beloved deity. Worship becomes easy when we assign a specific form to Brahman (Absolute Reality), Manasa Puja (mental worship)." by Ammachi

"Most people when they pray talk to God rather than with Him. They don't take the time to listen, in deep inner silence, for His answer. Prayer, however, to be most deeply meaningful, needs to be a two-way communication, a giving and receiving - like conversation. And while it would be absurd to think in terms of "fascinating" God with our part of the conversation, there are proven ways of making our prayers more effective. Listening is one of them.Meditation is more than a practice conducted at specific times of the day. It is a habit of mind, a way of life. Try sharing your thoughts and feelings with God all day long. Listen for His guidance, His approval - yes, even His silent laughter within! When you share your life with Him, your meditations also will be much deeper. by Swami Kripananda

Wherever I go, with whomever I go
may I see myself as less than all others, and
from the depth of my heart
may I consider them supremely precious.

"Consider the following. We humans are social beings. We come into the world as the result of others’ actions. We survive here in dependence on others. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment of our lives when we do not benefit from others’ activities. For this reason it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others.  Nor is it so remarkable that our greatest joy should come when we are motivated by concern for others. But that is not all. We find that not only do altruistic actions bring about happiness but they also lessen our experience of suffering." by the Dalai Lama
This is a very short film giving the experience of meditation. (C)KODAIJI-TEMPLE
You may try hundreds of things, but nothing can work unless your mind is with you. It is the mind that creates a mess outside and inside, and it’s the mind that finds a way to clean up the mess. All problems are created and solved by the mind, but surprisingly, mind is not known to itself. Mind is the greatest of all mysteries. It stands between an individual and the highest truth and is the cause of both bondage and liberation. Properly trained, mind can help you attain enlightenment, but if misguided, it can leave you stranded on the shoals of confusion and bondage. Peace is created by the mind. First, make the decision to be content in any circumstance. From that womb of contentment, peace is born. It is foolish to expect to achieve peace by retiring into the deep forest or leaving for a distant galaxy. Ultimately, one must find peace right within one’s own mind.
Zazen is a particular kind of meditation, unique to Zen, that functions centrally as the very heart of the practice. In fact, Zen Buddhists are generally known as the "meditation Buddhists." Basically, zazen is the study of the self.The great Master Dogen said, "To study the Buddha Way is to study the self, to study the self is to forget the self, and to forget the self is to be enlightened by the ten thousand things." To be enlightened by the ten thousand things is to recognize the unity of the self and the ten thousand things. Upon his own enlightenment, Buddha was in seated meditation; Zen practice returns to the same seated meditation again and again. For two thousand five hundred years that meditation has continued, from generation to generation; it's the most important thing that has been passed on. It spread from India to China, to Japan, to other parts of Asia, and then finally to the West. It's a very simple practice. It's very easy to describe and very easy to follow. But like all other practices, it takes doing in order for it to happen.
Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our bodymind makes that difficult. Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions. Osho Active MeditationsTM have been scientifically designed to enable us to consciously express and experience repressed feelings and emotions, and learn the knack of watching our habitual patterns in a new way. If you want to live a more fulfilled life, first you will want to know your potential, who you really are. Meditation is the route to that knowing. It is the methodology of the science of awareness.The beauty of the inner science is that it enables whoever wants to explore and to experiment within, to do so alone. This eliminates dependence on an outer authority, the need to be affiliated with any organization and the obligation to accept a certain ideology. Once you understand the steps, you walk the walk in your own, individual way.
By Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
"The practice of mindfulness/awareness meditation is common to all Buddhist traditions. Beyond that, it is common to, inherent in, all human beings. In meditation we are continuously discovering who and what we are. That could be quite frightening or quite boring, but after a while, all that slips away. We get into some kind of natural rhythm and begin to discover our basic mind and heart."

"When you meditate, the silence of the senses illumines the presence of God within." Gurumayi Chidvilasananda -from Enthusiasm

No matter who we are, what we do, what we may have or not have, each of us has an inherent power to meditate. Once this power is ignited through shaktipat, our meditation naturally deepens and draws us to the goal of Self-realization. Meditation is the practice of turning our attention inward. Meditation beckons us to unravel the greatest mystery of life -- that in this human form, we are also divine. When we still the mind in meditation we are drawn, like bees to honey, to the presence of God within. Touching this truth, our restlessness ceases and we are flooded with a sense of our own perfection and divinity.
The Transcendental Meditation technique, practiced by 5 million people worldwide, is a simple, natural, effortless technique. The effectiveness of the Transcendental Meditation program has been validated by over 500 scientific studies at more than 200 independent research institutions in 30 countries. The TM technique requires no belief or lifestyle change, is non-religious, is not time-consuming, and can be learned by anyone regardless of age or level of education."Transcendental Meditation, in addition to its simplicity, concerns itself only with the mind. Other systems often involve some additional aspects with which the mind is associated, such as breathing or physical exercises. They can be a little complicated because they deal with so many things. But with Transcendental Meditation there is no possibility of any interference. So we say this is the all-simple program, enabling the conscious mind to fathom the whole range of its existence." Maharishi Mahesh Yogi by the monk Kosen
" The zen apprenticeship resembles to guerilla: a small part of ourselves takes to the maquis to struggle against the corrupted power, greedy and liar, which leads our inner life. This struggle appears to be hopeless but we still undertake it and , with some know-how, a lot of tenacity, some people have succeeded and have liberated themselves from themselves. The zen I am talking about is not the apprenticeship of a meditation, it is a shelter that man owns from ever, a shelter of peace and happiness which springs out instantaneously as soon as we practice it. All the human beings, whoever they are, are capable to obtain this treasure, and even if they practice only during a single day, even if they sit in the posture only a short instant, that will have an incidence and will irremediably transform their existence. We discover quite simple things, but still extraordinary ones, like for example the feeling of life. Everybody get this feeling, so intimate that it seems to us eternal, immortal. We do not get the impression that this strength of living can disappear, even with death. Would it not be that, the buddha's nature? To discover it is not more complicated than that. We often believe that the extraordinary things are not accessible. I think that originally the world is the paradise, the promised land, that the human vocation is to be the visible side of God. Even the extraordinary works in a very simple way. Removing complications, parasites, pollution, this is enough for the evidence to show up. The evidence has not been invented by somebody. Buddha himself did not invent the evidence, neither any prophet, nor any revolutionary. They only knew sometimes how to perceive it".
