When you feel disturbance in the mind, you try to calm down the mind. That’s why you practice meditation. Don’t get disappointed that you can’t meditate perfectly right away. Nothing is achieved overnight. When did you learn to walk or run? When you were a baby, you couldn’t even stand up, you couldn’t even crawl, and walk, and run. Meditation is like that.”

Sri Swami Satchidananda
