“Meditation never makes you alone, but makes you one in all. You are never alone because you have a friend with you all the time, with whom you are constantly conversing. This is your greatest friend, who is never selfish, who is always giving. You have unfulfilled desires, many frustrations. All of these will be washed off when you meet that one who fulfills everyone’s desires. What do I need if I have Thee?” —Bengali Baba
