In this series we are presenting quotes by Sri Chinmoy in combination with a video showing him in silent meditation, to help seekers find their way into the spiritual world. Today’s episode is called Prayer & Meditation and incorporates the following quote:
“The difference between prayer and meditation is this: when we pray, we feel that our existence is a one-pointed flame soaring upward. The very nature of prayer is to reach God by going up. When we meditate, we throw ourselves into a vast expanse, into an infinite sea of peace and bliss, or we welcome the infinite Vast into us.”
– Sri Chinmoy
The video was taken in Bali during a concert in the University of Bali in 2001.

I have always used mindfulness to become part of the moment of doing something and fully engaging. For instance, when drinking tea or coffee, fully become aware of all aspects of the preparation, pouring, and drinking without thinking of something else. Just be present, its a great exercise and then return to the breath when needed.
