- Meditation is not an achievement, nor is it the capture of a vision, nor the excitement of sensation.
It is like the river, not to be tamed, swiftly running and overflowing its banks.
It is the music without sound;
it cannot be domesticated and made use of.
It is the silence in which the observer has ceased from the very beginning.
Again, sir, you have come back to the question of something that is timeless, which is beyond thought.
What is beyond thought is innocence, and thought, do what it will, can never touch it, for thought is always old.
It is innocency, like love, that is deathless, but for that to exist the mind must be free of the thousand yesterdays with their memories.
And freedom is a state in which there is no hate, no violence, no brutality.
Without putting away all these things how can we ask what immortality is, what love is, what truth is?
