If there is no meditation, then you are like a blind man in a world of great beauty, light and colour. – J Krishnamurthi
what is meditation?
Meditation is different things to different people. According to Krishnamurthi meditation is when you achieve a certain quality of mind. A mind that’s virginal, without preconceptions of any kind, and one that can perceive things just as they are.
The goal of meditation is to stay mindful and enjoy the fruits of meditation at anytime and at all times. When that happens, we gain a deep perception of life and the participants therein. When we see the rain drop falling on a solitary leaf, we hear the sound of it, we see the splash in all it’s colorful beauty and we notice the leaf shiver as it receives the perfect drop of pure water into its bosom. Our perception of the world is now at a very deep level. We aren’t blind anymore.
