Q&A: Meditating next to someone who is thinking worldly thoughts

What happens if we are meditating next to someone who is thinking worldly thoughts?

If your meditation is very high, very powerful, at that time inner fire emanates from you. If someone who is cherishing worldly thoughts sits with you, he will be compelled to give up those thoughts. Many times I have seen this when three or four people are meditating together. If one of them is in a very high meditation, then those who are cherishing worldly thoughts either have to leave the place or they are compelled from within to meditate soulfully.

When you are right, everything around you is right, for the beautiful flow that is inside your heart has the capacity to spread its fragrance of oneness-light all around you.
