"When one of my meditation students asks me, 'Swamiji, am I making spiritual progress? Is my meditation improving? Is it leading me closer to enlightenment?', I often reply, 'Do not ask me; ask your wife/husband/child/mother-in-law/daughter-in-law/neighbor. Do they say that your emotions have purified, you are easier to get along with, you are gentler, less angry, less arrogant, less jealous, less possessive, softer of tone, humbler than you used to be? If so, you are making spiritual progress. If not, 12 hours of meditation a day behind closed doors is a mere escape from the need to reform yourself. It is not going to lead you to moksha.' The first liberation is from the emotional negativity that distorts your relationships. Relationships are the test of spiritual progress." [read the entire article at Life Positive]
Swami Veda invites you to sit with him in meditation for an hour where ever you are, in your home or with friends. Total beginners, non-initiates and initiates are welcome.
