Meditation-Silence 34: Aspiration

This is the 34th episode of the series “Meditation-Silence” which focuses on the power of meditation. It also includes a meditation video of Sri Chinmoy, taken this time during a meditation on “Aspiration-Ground” in Queens, NY with original live sound (August 1983). Today’s quote is on “Aspiration”:

“Why do me meditate? We meditate just because our life needs inspiration. Our life needs aspiration. Aspiration is to some extend a form of meditation. It is our meditation that promises to give us our realisation-tree. Today meditation plays the role of aspiration. And tomorrow meditation will play the role of realisation. The inner pilot – the Pilot-Supreme – inspires us to act and it is he who has already kept the fruit of action safe and alive of our aspiration.”

– Sri Chinmoy, from “Wings of Joy”, first published by Fireside, NY, 1997.
