      SIVANANDA DAILY READING FOR 7 OCTOBER

      PERSEVERE IN SADHANA

      Let the sadhana (spiritual practice) always be regular,
      continuous,unbroken and earnest. Not only regularity
      but also continuity in sadhana and meditation are
      necessary if you want to attain self­ realisation quickly.

      A spiritual stream, once set going, does not dry
      up unless the channel­bed gets blocked, unless there
      is stagnation. Be vigilant eternally. Meditate regularly.
      Annihilate the under­current of vasana (habit­patterns).

      Patience, perseverance, courage, determination,
      discrimination and dispassion are needed to tread the
      spiritual path. Put away thoughts, stimuli, perceptions,
      intentions, emotions, feelings, preoccupations
      and deliberations arising out of the senses and the
      sense objects.

      You will attain supreme blessedness or the peace of
      the eternal. Keep the flame of thy aspiration ever
      kindled bright. Let purity, serenity, compassion, truth
      and oneness, manifest in thy thoughts and actions.
      Through penance, prayer and meditation the soul ascends
      on the divine chariot, to the realms of infinite bliss,
      to God's halls of wisdom.

      Regularity is of paramount importance in spiritual
      practice. Spiritual aspirants must be arduous and
      efficient in performing their tasks without a break.
      Pray without a break. Have unshakable faith.

      Remember vairagya (dispassion) and abhyasa (constant
      practice). Prayer is the wing by which you fly to God.
      Meditation or intuition is the eye by which you see God.
      Pray fervently unto the Lord. Pray for the Lord's light
      and guidance.

      Meditate on the great truth within. Strive ever to keep
      thyself close to the divine centre. Day by day draw
      nearer unto the Lord. Strive inwardly to grow into the
      likeness of the divine ideal.
