Shivabalayogi Seattle

“As you keep practicing meditation you will get a lot of happiness and bliss.  The kind of happiness you get in meditation does not exist on this earth anywhere else.  All the kinds of happiness that you experience outside is nothing compared to the happiness you get when you meditate.”


The Benefits of Meditation

“If you do meditation for one hour a day, it will give you peace of mind.  It will solve all your problems and give you good health.  It will also bring you into the line of devotion.  You will receive good development on the spiritual path.”

“Meditation is to control one’s mind.  Through meditation one can get peace of mind.  One’s blood pressure comes down so your health improves.  Whatever one does in life is done better.  One comes to know one’s own mind.  Through such understanding, everyone can function and work together.  The quality of one’s work will become good.”

“Meditation reduces the tension in you.  With progress it helps you achieve Self realization.  The practice of meditation makes it easier for you to understand the people with whom you interact.  If they are planning to harm you, you come to know of it ahead of time.”

“If you practice meditation well, you will come to know.  You will be enlightened and you will have peace of mind.  You will clear out whatever obstructions you may have.  Swamiji will bring you to enlightenment.”


From the printed “Meditation Instructions” that Shivabalayogi gave after initiation into dhyana meditation:

“Practicing meditation regularly and with devotion helps fulfill your wishes in course of time.”
