Meditation is suspension of thoughts – Ramana Maharishi

What is meditation? It is the suspension of thoughts.
The mind turned outward results in thoughts and objects. Turned inwards it becomes itself the Self.
The only useful purpose of this birth is to turn within and realize. There is nothing else to do.
A man attached to desire cannot get solitude, wherever he may be; a detached man is always in solitude.
Solitude is not to be found in forests only. It can be had even in towns and the thick of worldly occupation. Ramana Maharishi
