Swami Sivananda

The road to the Supreme is clothed with pricking thorns. It is sharp like the edge of a razor, hard to tread, a very difficult path! It can be trodden only with the help of knowledge obtained from men of wisdom. Knowing That, one is liberated from the terrible mouth of death. The mind and the senses always run outwards. Only the man of self-discipline and perseverance can gaze inward and experience the State of Atman as it really is. The childish, who have no knowledge of the Truth, run after external pleasures and they fall into the net of wide-spread death. Only the wise, knowing the state of Immortality, seek not the unshakable Brahman among things which are impermanent here.

“He who knows, knows not; he who knows not, knows.” This is a statement in the Upanishad, meaning that one who has realised the Truth has no personality-consciousness, and one who has it knows not the Truth.

- Swami Krishnananda
