Dear All Kalyanamittas,
Below is a very profound and meaningful quote on Meditation by J Krishnamurti for sharing by all. Please do read through it attentively to develop the true understanding of this rather beautiful quote. We shall discuss this quote at our next Tuesday and Thursday classes.
Bye! and with metta always,
Meditation is to be aware of every thought and of every feeling, never to say it is right or wrong but just to watch it and move with it. In that watching you begin to understand the whole movement of thought and feeling. And out of this awareness comes silence. Silence put together by thought is stagnation, is dead, but the silence that comes when thought has understood its own beginning, the nature of itself, understood how all thought is never free but always old – this silence is meditation in which the meditator is entirely absent, for the mind has emptied itself of the past. – Krishnamurti, Freedom from the Known,115
