      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 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.
