      SIVANANDA DAILY READING FOR 27 DECEMBER
      KEY TO PERFECTION

      Meditate on the atman; you will enjoy peace and bliss. The more you
      grow in aspiration and meditation the more God-like you grow, for in
      meditation is the light of the Lord. Meditate and charge your battery
      by contact with God. Dive deep into the chambers of your heart
      through profound and silent meditation and bring up the pearl of
      truth. Meditate and retire to your innermost centre. Abide now in
      perfect serenity and the peace that passeth all understanding.

      Fear, distress, worry, temptation and despair will assail you during
      meditation. Repeat the Lord's name vigorously and sincerely - all
      will vanish. Meditate amidst noise, study amidst noise. Discipline
      and again discipline. There will be no tossing of the mind for you.
      You will have a strong unperturbed mind. If purity increases, the
      body becomes light and the mind becomes cheerful. One attains greater
      balance of mind and the power of concentration increases. You enter
      into deep meditation. If for one day you do not practise meditation,
      you will lose much; you will not be able to reach the original
      spiritual height the next day. Therefore always be regular in your
      meditation. Enquire, "Who am I?" Find the seer, find the
      knower. Meditate on satcidananda atman, the inner ruler, the
      indweller.

      Meditate on Brahman as support, greatness, wisdom, bliss and
      existence. The light which never fails is the light of meditation.
      You experience samadhi (the vision of truth) through the light of
      meditation. Moksa (emancipation) is very near to him who is perfect
      is meditation. Connect your mind with the mind of God through
      meditation or yoga. Your life will become divine, your life will be
      transformed.

      Meditation is the means; knowledge is the end. Meditation is the
      process; knowledge is the culmination. In meditation there is
      struggle, striving or effort. In knowledge there is no striving. So
      long as there is meditation, the meditator is only an aspirant. When
      meditation ceases and the goal is reached, the meditator becomes the
      knower of truth - all meditation and effort cease. He is a jivanmukta
      (liberated sage). When you try to behold a tree, there is effort in
      the beginning of perception. Later it becomes a continuous stream of
      consciousness of the tree. So is knowledge of Brahman.
