When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a
Lamp in a windless place. In the still mind, in the depths of meditation,
The eternal Self reveals itself. Beholding the Self by means of the Self,
An aspirant knows the joy and peace of complete fulfillment. Having attained
That abiding joy beyond the senses, revealed in the stilled mind,
He never swerves from the central truth. He desires nothing else, and
Cannot be shaken by the heaviest burden of sorrow.
    ~Upanishads, Hinduism

An hour of contemplation is better than a year of prayer.
    ~Muhammad
 
Fear, anger, hatred and pride; these are purified by study and meditation and that, too, must be attained gradually and not instantaneously.
 ~Lankavatara Sutra, Buddhism
 
Therefore, know thou that the True One possesseth invisible worlds
Which human meditation is unable to comprehend and the intellect of
Man hath no power to imagine. When thou wilt purify and clarify thy
Spiritual nostrils from every worldly moisture, then thou wilt inhale
The holy fragrances diffusing from the merciful gardens of these
Worlds.
    ~'Abdu'l-Baha, Baha'i Writings
