Question: How can meditation help us to lose weight?

Sri Chinmoy: You can meditate every day to lose weight. As soon as you start meditating, you have to think of yourself as a feather. You can keep a feather in front of you and feel that you are that feather. Use your imagination-power. Imagination is reality in another world. If your concentrative will-power is focussed on that feather, and if you can become one with the feather-consciousness, no matter what you eat, you will be able to lose weight. Your goal is not to become as light as a feather — far from it! The feather is only symbolic. The feather symbolises lightness. If you can keep inside your mind a fixed idea that you are light, automatically the mind will put pressure on the physical. Imagination is a very strong power. Your imagination will be able to help you.
