A note from Manisha...

Dear <<First Name>>,

I’ve written several articles on meditation where I share tips, basic techniques, outer preparations, including the time, duration, and frequency of meditation but I’ve never written on what it takes to be a successful meditator. 
All the tools and techniques will work well only if one is well-prepared to meditate. I was inspired to write my latest article, The 4 Qualities of a Successful Meditator, after I chanced upon a verse from a traditional Vedantic text called the Vivekachoodamani.

My guru, Swami Chinmayananda has written a commentary on this text. In the footnote of this verse he says: This is a very important verse which indicates all the essential adjustments a seeker must make in himself before he becomes fit for higher meditations. Those who ignore these values and disciplines suffer endless disturbances on the path and rarely achieve any enduring success."

This is quite significant—to achieve enduring success, cultivating four inner qualities are necessary. What are they? Read The 4 Qualities of a Successful Meditator to find out. 
These qualities are not only useful for meditation, they are vital inner qualities for anyone on the spiritual path. Click here to read the article.

On another note, I’d like to seek your support for the FILL A PURSE FOR A SISTER CAMPAIGN Sept 1- Dec 1, 2021—A feel-good initiative to bring some sunshine to women in shelters and rape crisis centres.
This yearly campaign involves the collection and distribution of purses and backpacks filled with personal care items to support women of domestic violence who flee from their homes empty-handed. 
If you would like to donate a purse filled with everyday essentials for a fellow sister in need, please reach out to me or take a look at the website for more information on how you can help click: Fill a Purse for a sister Campaign
I am involved in the collections for the Richmond Hill area. For a full list of donation drop-off locations in the Greater Toronto Area, click here

Until we connect again in two weeks...

Warmly, Manisha

So You're a Spiritual Being—Now What?          
by Manisha Melwani 
What happens to your body parts does not affect the real you. This is because you are spirit, the vital and conscious presence that keeps your body alive and makes it function.

     The 4 Qualities of a Successful Meditator              
Meditation is a subtle and advanced spiritual practice. To be a successful meditator, four inner qualities are necessary. Without these qualities, meditation would at best be a technique that brings a temporary calm and relaxation. As soon as you are done, your thoughts, worries and concerns that were suppressed during your practice will all come gushing back.
