"As an enlightened teacher of Buddhism, I’d like to welcome you to the pathway to enlightenment. I’d like to encourage you, based upon my own personal experience and the personal experience of countless others, to meditate -- to be more positive, to engage in the practice of meditation, to learn how to do this wonderful thing, to make your mind still in a crazy world." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Meditation is concentration in the beginning. It's a focus. Then, in the intermediate stage, it's an opening, a deepening of one's awareness but with a focus towards the planes of light. In intermediate meditation, you're touching light more deeply than in introductory meditation. In advanced meditation, you become light. You transcend self, ego, time, space, dimensionality. You merge with the clear light of reality and you go beyond this world." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"What makes us happy is contact with Light. As you have experiences with the inner light, which are gained through the practice of meditation and Buddhism, it immediately delights you." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Enlightenment simply exists, and if you would like to attain it, if you would like to go beyond suffering, pain, frustration, and the limited happiness that can be experienced in any form, then you need to journey to enlightenment." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Wisdom is the ability to do two things at once -- to be in the world and of it, to enjoy it, to participate in it fully and successfully, and at the same time, to not be here at all -- to be in realms of light, to be in samadhi, beyond all this. That’s true wisdom." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Spiritual balance is the ability to be happy in spite of circumstances -- happiness in pleasure and in pain, in sickness and in health, in life and in death, in all circumstances. That’s balance.
"How do you do that? It’s a decision. It’s a decision that you make every day and that you renew, that you strengthen. You decide to be happy. You find out how. And the shortcut to happiness, to spiritual balance, is to meditate." Rama -
