Eliminate Violence

If every eight-year-old in the world is taught meditation, we will eliminate violence from the world within one generation. – Dali Lama (1935-)

Receiving Christ Consciousness by Communication with the Holy Ghost in Meditation

The light of God shines equally in all, but because of delusive ignorance all do not receive, reflect, it alike. Sunlight falls the same on a lump of coal and a diamond, but only the diamond receives and reflects the light in brilliant splendor.

The carbon in the coal has the potential to become a diamond. All it requires is conversion under high pressure. So it is said here that everyone can be like Christ–whosoever clarifies his consciousness by a moral and spiritual life, and especially by the purification of meditation in which rudimentary mortality is sublimed into the soul’s perfection of immortality. — Paramahansa Yogananda (1893-1952)
