      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 fulfillment. 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 sens
      es. 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 6.16-27
