You cannot practise meditation if your mind is full of desires, and if your mind is diverted by any external object. If your mind is unruly, uncontrolled, if your heart is full of resentment and turbulence, there will be no meditation for you. He who has practised Yama-Niyama and Pratyahara will obtain the full benefit of meditation. Meditation is not successful without discipline and devotion. Concentration leads to meditation.
O Man! Be courageous, be cheerful, be serene, be joyful. Smile, laugh, dance in ecstasy. You are ever perfect, free and independent. You are divine.
