#Meditation happens beyond #mind. It involves watching #mind. When the real YOU, the watcher, becomes stronger the mind becomes the #servant.

No #discipline, #mantra or #scientific instrument can lead to meditation. No technique can go beyond mind.
The basis of all misunderstanding in a scientific circle is: when the being of a person is in a state of meditation, it creates certain waves in the mind. These waves can be wavelength from the outside by #technical means. But those waves will not create #meditation
You may go on practising with #scientific instruments for years; it will not change your #character, it will not change your #morality, it will not change your #individuality. You will remain the same.
The scientific thinking will say: if we can create this wave pattern in the mind through some #biofeedback #technology, then the being inside will reach the heights of #awareness.

This will not happen.
It is not a question of #cause and #effect. These waves in the mind are not the cause of #meditation; they are, on the contrary, the effect. But from the effect, you cannot move towards the cause.
It is not a question of sitting silently, it is not a question of #chanting a mantra. It is a question of understanding the subtle workings of the #mind. As you understand those workings of the mind a great #awareness arises in you, which is not of the #mind.
#Meditation transforms. It #changes your whole #lifestyle.

It changes your #reactions into #responses to such an extent that it is unbelievable that the person who would have reacted in the same #situation in anger is now acting in deep #compassion, with #love.
#Meditation is a state of being, arrived at through #understanding. It needs intelligence; it does not need techniques. There is no #technique that can give you #intelligence. Otherwise, we would have changed all the #idiots into #geniuses.
There is no way to change your #intelligence from the outside, to sharpen it, to make it more penetrating, to give it more insight. It is practising a question of #understanding, and nobody else can do it for you - no #machine, no man.
For centuries the so-called #gurus have been #cheating #humanity. Now, in the #future instead of gurus, these guru machines will cheat humanity. The gurus were cheating people, saying, “We will give you a mantra. Repeat the mantra.”
Certainly, by repeating a #mantra continuously, you create the energy field of a certain wavelength, but the man remains the same because it is only on the surface.
If you throw a pebble into a silent lake, and ripples arise but they do not touch the depths of the lake at all. The #depths are completely #unaware of what is happening on the surface. You think that ripples are moving; that’s not true, nothing is moving.
You can create the pattern in the mind, and if the person does not know about #meditation, he may feel a #silence, #serenity, for the moment, as long as those waves remain. But you cannot deceive a meditator. The mind is a lower reality, and it cannot change the higher #reality.
There is only one way - there has never been a second. There is one and only one way to understand that to be angry is to be stupid: watch #anger in all its phases, be alert to it so it does not catch you #unawares; remain #watchful, seeing every step of the anger.
As awareness about the ways of anger grows, it starts evaporating, then there is peace. #Peace is not a positive achievement. When the #hatred disappears, there is love. #Love is not a positive achievement. When #jealousy disappears, there is a deep #friendliness towards all.
#Understanding arises by becoming a #mirror, a mirror of all that goes on in the #mind.

In every situation where mind starts any kind of #desire, #greed, #lust, #ambition, #possessiveness, the #meditator has to be just a mirror. To be just a mirror means you are simply #aware.
