“First and foremost, meditate! even when you don’t feel like it, meditate. Even when you body is unwell, get in the habit of meditating anyway. Even when you’re tired, don’t let your body lie on that bed first. You have to have that kind determination.”

Sri Daya Mata, an advanced disciple of Sri Paramahansa Yogananda for many years talks about how can we get to know God through daily Meditation and prayers. However, the help of a Master Realized Soul is of a tremendous importance to get to know God.
If we want to learn to play piano. we seek the assistance of a qualified Teacher. Likewise on the spiritual path we seek the help of a Guru or Master to get to know God. (1) *
When we pray we talk to God, but when sit still and listen with a quiet mind and deep concentration, free from bodily and restless mind distractions, we are listening to God.
The first sign of God’s presence is felt as a tremendous and indescribable peace which permeate our whole being and every atom of our body.
I hope this lecture by Daya Mata serve you and help you in your quest for seeking God.
