What is Meditation: 3 Masters, 170 Words.

Meditation is an act of consent to the ever expanding reality of who you are, right-here, right-now.

“It is abiding as one’s Self without swerving in any way from one’s real nature and without feeling that one is meditating.”

~ Ramana Maharishi


“Meditation should not be regarded as a learning process. It should be regarded as an experiencing process. You should not try to learn from meditation but try to feel it. Meditation is an act of nonduality. The technique you are using should not be separate from you; it is you, you are the technique. Meditator and meditation are one. There is no relationship involved.“

~ Chogyam Trungpa


“Sometimes people say, ‘Well, you know, I don’t really meditate. That’s not my thing.’ Well, is your thing to be yourself? Is your thing to discover the depths of your own being? Is your thing to open your eyes to the beauty of life? Well, then you’re a meditator, because that’s all meditation is. It’s being willing to be alone, to be willing to give your own state of being room to show itself.”

~ Dr. Reggie Ray
