The Lord who is the Bliss of the Gods. The Lord who is the Bliss of Knowledge. The Lord who is the Nectar of Immortal Joy.

Shri Mataji on meditation

In the morning you get up, have your bath, sit down, take some tea don't talk. Don't talk in the morning- sit down, meditate - because at that time the Divine rays come in, the Sun comes afterwards. That's how the birds get up. That's how the flowers get up. They're all awakened by that and if you are sensitive you will feel that by getting up in the morning you will look at least ten years younger. Really, it's such a good thing to get up in the morning and then, automatically you sleep early....
