M – Mixer
Have you seen a mixer at work? It grinds stuff for a few moments and then it stops. There is no activity, everything settles. Similarly, when I sit to meditate, for a few moments there might be several thoughts from everywhere going round and round in my mind but there comes a point when all these thoughts settle down.

My meditation is the engine of my life which helps me drive it with ease.

I - Infinitely Closed Bubble
Meditation, to me, is an infinitely closed bubble. I say bubble because I feel it’s power all around me; I say it’s closed because it keeps bad influences at bay; and infinite because it beholds so much energy that it makes me capable of diverse actions.
