You don't have to look like Guru Deva in order to meditate. The Vedic Meditation technique doesn't require you to wear orange robes, change your lifestyle, religion or philosophy. It requires no belief or faith. Even if you don't believe in it, it still works. It is a natural technique that is able to be mastered by anybody. The only requirement is that you are able to think. If you can think then you can meditate.
