      When meditation is mastered, the mind
      is unwavering like the flame of a lamp
      in a windless place. In the still mind,
      in the depths of meditation, the eternal
      Self reveals itself. Beholding the Self
      by means of the Self, an aspirant knows
      the joy and peace of complete fulfilment.
      Having attained that abiding joy beyond
      the senses, revealed in the stilled mind,
      he never swerves from the central truth.
      He desires nothing else, and cannot be
      shaken by the heaviest burden of sorrow.

      The practice of meditation frees one from
      all affliction. This is the path of yoga.
      Follow it with determination and sustained
      enthusiasm. Renouncing wholeheartedly all
      selfish desires and expectations, use your
      will to control the senses. Little by little,
      through patience and repeated effort, the mind
      will become stilled in the Self.

      Wherever the mind wanders, restless and
      diffuse in its search for satisfaction without,
      lead it within; train it to rest in the Self.
      Abiding joy comes to those who still the mind.
      Freeing themselves from the taint of self-will,
      with their consciousness unified, they become one
      with God.

      Bhagavad Gita 6.10-27
