      {"Do not live even a single day without inner
      meditation." -- Baba Devi Sahab}






      "One who meditates upon the Self and realizes the Self sees the Self everywhere, and rejoices in the Self. Such a one lives in freedom and is at home wherever he goes. But those who pursue the finite are blind to the Self and live in bondage.

      "One who meditates upon and realizes the Self discovers that everything in the cosmos --- energy and space, fire and water, name and form, birth and death, mind and will, word and deed, mantram and meditation --- all come from the Self.

      "The Self is one, though it appears to be many. Those who meditate upon the Self and realize the Self go beyond decay and death, beyond separateness and sorrow. They see the Self in everyone and obtain all things.

      "Control the senses and purify the mind. In a pure mind there is constant awareness of the Self. Where there is constant awareness of the Self, freedom ends bondage and joy ends sorrow."

      Thus the sage Sanatkumara taught the pure Narada to go beyond bondage, beyond sorrow, beyond darkness, to the light of the Self.
