• The process of meditation does not take you to some new world; it only introduces you to the world where you have been for lives upon lives. The process of meditation does not add anything to you; it only takes away what is wrong, cuts it away, sheds it off.
    ~ Osho
  • When you are in deep meditation, you feel a great serenity, a joy that is unknown to you, a watchfulness that is a new guest. Soon this watchfulness will become the host. The day the watchfulness becomes the host, it remains twenty-four hours with you. And out of this watchfulness, whatever you do has a wisdom in it. Whatever you do shows a clarity, a purity, a spontaneity, a grace.
    ~ Osho
  • That is the true function of meditation: to create a space in you where you can be rich, infinitely rich, utterly peaceful, absolutely ecstatic.
    ~ Osho
  • Stand aside and watch the working of the divine power in yourself.
    ~ Sri Aurobindo
  • Modern man is too impatient and wants to master the art of meditation immediately.
    ~ Swami Rama
  • That's what I call meditation. You simply stand aloof and just see the mind disappearing, like a cloud on a faraway horizon, leaving the sky clean and pure. And in that state arises your consciousness in its full glory, in its full celebration.
    ~ Osho
  • Some people think that meditation takes time away from physical accomplishment. Taken to extremes, of course, that's true. Most people, however, find that meditation creates more time than it takes.
    ~ Peter Alexander McWilliams
  • To me the greatest problem with humanity is that they don't know anything of meditation.
    ~ Osho
  • An interval of meditation, serious and grateful, was the best corrective of everything dangerous in such a high-wrought felicity; and she went to her room, and grew steadfast and fearless in the thankfulness of her enjoyment.
    ~ Jane Austen
  • Mindfulness is about falling awake rather than asleep.
    ~ Shamash Alidina
