Great ideas are conceived only by alert minds – Swami Chinmayananda

Daily prayer and meditation are all wonderful therapeutic agencies in building up peace and happiness within an individual.
A mind held at concentration brings into view the deeper thoughts that were till then hidden from it due to its own fluctuations.
The joyous expansion of mind experienced in prayer, and the hushed silence and restful inner dynamism experienced in meditation are the sculptors that fashion our character and conduct.
Great ideas are conceived only by alert minds held steady in meditative pose, in unbroken concentration and dynamic vigil. – Swami Chinmayananda
