“Let me teach you about meditation. When you meditate, the entire garbage of the subconscious starts floating. Meditation is not pleasant. Meditation cannot be pleasant, otherwise it is not meditation. You are doing something else. Meditation is just cleaning the house. Now, you have a Hoover vacuum going on, and you say there was no noise? There is no dust? How is that possible? Whenever you are going to clean the house, you are going to see the whole thing upside down, and when you are going to release the subconscious, you are going to find not only dirt of this life, but of lives and lives and lives and lives and lives
Meditation is a must process. It is an act of selfishness which a person must do. What will it give you? Unpleasant labor. It’s a labor of sweat. Now, what happens in meditation? When you meditation with the gurumantra, it must have respect….. it must have reverence. There are two things which must be there. When you sit and meditate, your mind goes beserk. It is a wrestling match. Give your life a chance. One tenth of the time belongs to the Guru. I’m not asking you anything or judging you, I’m not telling you anything. But one thing which I have learned, and am telling you, Guru as my guarantee: there is nothing good in living except those personal hours of meditation. Something has told me it can work. Those of you who practice the path of the Guru with love and devotion, have received his blessing. Greetings to you. But those who are still half way, they should make today a decision. Let us do it for 40 days. If it doesn’t suit you, then leave it. That’s how I started. Purpose of meditation is prosperity here and hearafter!”
