Question: What is the best way to meditate?

Sri Chinmoy: The best way to meditate is to feel that you have come from the Source. This Source is Delight. When you meditate, feel that you have come from that Source and you go back there triumphant and victorious. Here on earth you play your role and then you go back to the Source. The Indian scriptures say:

Anandadd hy eva khalv imani bhutani jayante
Anandena jatani jivanti
Anandam prayantyabhisam visanti

"From Delight we came into existence.
In Delight we grow.
At the end of our journey's close,
Into Delight we shall retire."

This is the ultimate way of meditation.
