      In the following verse Sant Radhaswami Sahab has explained very lucidly the ideal way of living and meditation to be adopted by a spiritual seeker who has a genuine thirst for Self-Realisation or for getting rid of the painful vicious cycle of birth & death. A few words or phrases used in the verse are difficult of interpretation and call for an experienced and self-realised Sant for clear elucidation of their true connotation:
