Part I: Meditation: the ABC's

Question: Guru, you mention meditation. What does it mean to meditate?

Sri Chinmoy: Meditation means many things to many people. Each individual has a way of learning the secret of the art of meditation. In our case, when we meditate we empty our minds and then fill our minds with something divine. That is to say, we throw out all undivine, evil and fruitless thoughts and fill the mind with divine, illumining and fulfilling thoughts.
