I feel very good doing meditation, but I don’t understand what is this hollow and empty. Is it necessary to understand this?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

No, it is not necessary at all. When you have already become hollow and empty, what remains to be understood then? If you are not hollow and empty, then perhaps there is something to understand. Isn’t it? You cannot hold on to an empty thing. Whatever is happening is right. With this belief, just sit and relax. It is said – ‘Bhole bhaav miley Raghurai’ (One attains the Lord by the purity and simplicity of one’s feelings).
