Purpose

There are three categories of people traveling through the procession of life: time-oriented, goal-oriented and purpose-oriented…The third category of people is composed of those few individuals who are purpose-oriented: whatever they think, speak, and do is in accordance with their purpose in life…What label one attaches to this purpose -happiness, perfection, health, a state of tranquility, nirvana, samadhi, Godhead – is immaterial. The people of this last category are rare, but they are healthy in all respects.~Swami Rama, Himalayan Institute

Dawn & Dusk

To be most effective, meditation must be practiced daily at a regular time. The best times to practice are those which synchronize the meditator’s daily life with the larger cycles of the planet and cosmos. The mood of the planet changes dramatically at times of sunrise and sunset. This change which begins about 30 minutes before the sun touches the horizon and lasts for about an hour also produces marked changes in body chemistry. -Harish Johari
