Meditation Quotes
(15+ quotes)

Meditation quotes address the universally known benefits of meditating. The Buddha said meditation brings wisdom.  It can mean sitting in silence, walking in nature, 

sitting in a place of worship, or repeating a mantra or chant. The act of mindful breathing and emptying the mind of thoughts takes you there. It takes practice to stop the ‘monkey mind’ from constantly chattering. Relax. Focus on your breath – breathing in, breathing out. When a thought comes in, simply release it on the wave of your next breath. Do not judge yourself. You are doing it perfectly. If all else fails, the Dalai Lama says, “Sleep is the best meditation.” Good night.

Sleep is the best meditation.
Dalai Lama

Suppose you read about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment. Would you take it? Suppose further that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy, and trust; it even improves memory. Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural and costs nothing. Now would you take it? The pill exists. It is meditation.
Jonathan Haidt

We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection.
