How many times should I meditate?
Question: Dear Gurudev, when and how many times should I meditate?
Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar: Even if you have to stop eating, stop... but don't stop meditating! The more regular you are, the deeper you will go.
Meditation is such a fragile phenomenon that it takes months to intensify as negligence starts to bloom like a soft flower in a few days!
Meditation requires a lot of regularity, consistency. If you sleep a little less one day, you don't lose much. Anyone can live five to seven days without sleeping. It's ok even if you skip a meal once, a man can survive without food for three months. You can survive for many days without food-water.
And your work is so important? It's not so important that you don't have time to meditate, but your mind tells you that this work is very important. People usually give more importance to this type of attitudes. And they think if they don't pay attention for a day or two, it's a problem.
But remember this, nothing will go wrong if you postpone small tasks of your routine, some times or even for some days. You have nothing to lose as you think. Instead through meditation you will know those golden peaks of consciousness, which is beyond your imagination right now.
The irony is that until you enter meditation, you won't really know what you've lost in life so far. You'll never know what you lost. The biggest bad luck of people is that they don't know what they lost. Besides losing, people don't know what they want to achieve in life, they don't realize it.
Meditation should be your first priority.

Three golden rules for meditation
There are three golden rules for meditation.
The first is to be Achaah – meaning that during meditation, have this feeling that 'I do not want or desire anything. For the next 10-15 minutes while I meditate, I do not want anything'. Can you all say this? After 10-15 minutes of meditation, you can surely get back to what you were doing. So this is the first rule for meditation.
The second rule is to be Aprayatna –meaning that for the next 10-15 minutes, just think that 'I shall do nothing, not make any effort'. You need not chant, you need not concentrate or strain the mind to focus on something. You have to do absolutely nothing.
The third rule for meditation is Akinchana – that is to realize that 'I am nothing'. Drop everything, do not think 'I am very knowledgeable, I am a Yogi; I am a sinner, or I am a very noble person; I am very great, or I am very insignificant; I am very intelligent, or I am a third-rated fool', etc. Having either of the two Dharanas will be detrimental for Yoga and meditation. If we just bear these three principles in mind for the next 10-15 minutes for meditation, then we will be able to go deep into meditation.
The Five Steps of Meditation
If we follow these three important rules, then we are able to go deep in meditation.
In the beginning, meditation is just a relaxation. In the second step, meditation is something that gives you energy; you feel more energetic. In the third step, meditation brings creativity. In the fourth step, mediation brings enthusiasm and joy.
The fifth step of meditation is indescribable, you simply can't describe it. It is that oneness with the whole universe. This is the fifth step of meditation, and don’t stop before that.
Do you know, your ability to enjoy also increases with meditation, and your ability to fulfill your desires also increases with meditation. And when you don’t want anything for yourself, you are able to fulfill the desires of others as well.
It is simply very nice. So don’t stop before that, keep mediating.
