Meditation is the reliable guide who leads us, whilst seeking and searching, to find and abide in the true nature of ultimate reality.
It leads to realization of "who it is that I am", and "why I am here", "where I do come from" and "whither I'm bound"?

Meditation is the singular answer to all, any question we have concerning this, our existence: in withholding reply, it answers them all.

Meditation—the sophisticated technology that leads to ascent: leaving the feeling of loneliness to self-dependently stand for one's own.

It seasons bland taste, like being alone, with the savory experience of the entirety of phenomena, all appearing within—unrestricted in time and unbound by space.

Meditation, what bliss! An inward journey devoid of a goer, no concept of `past', `future', `present' to cunningly leave rose-cushioned thorns on the way.

We thus proceed from the unknown to become the knower of knowing, from the vicissitudes of slavery to the contented serenity of mastery within.

We naturally abandon the need of `being someone' for resting in freedom, sky-like and free; embracing all beings without rising from space---

After our day's work is done, we rest our head on the pillow, and meditating proceed from exhaustion to sleep, from sleep to dream, from dream to full awakening.

Meditation---what beautiful process of alchemy, whereby rigidity melts and dim bleakness evaporates, we becoming trusting like water caressing even sharp cliffs, remaining graceful and flexible in the way that we flow.

Meditation, what marvel, how potent! Its qualities soar like the piercing-eyed eagle, beholding our innate purity, even when horizons away!

From deep within the pool of innately firm purity, there radiates bliss and relaxed, lucid focus shines forth from below; unhindered clarity weds tranquil intelligence---join us and welcome the love that is kindness, their first-born and glorious heir!
Is that wonderful? Emaho!
