Before you hear the voice of cosmic Truth you must hear the voice of silence - Swami Rama Thoughts

Desire is the very root of all miseries. So you must become desireless by maintaining the Here and Now by constant awareness. Remember the center of consciousness within you. When you are able to lead your mind to this state of desirelessness, then it is considered to be real meditation. Those who live for the welfare of all are sustained by the Self of all. Before you hear the voice of cosmic Truth you must hear the voice of silence. Best of men is he who lives in the world, but remains above. Karma is our own making. What we experience today is the result of what we have created in our past. So, too, is our future of our own making.
Swami Rama
