Words of Wisdom by Swami Sivananda
- Why Meditate
Without the help of meditation,
you cannot attain Knowledge of the Self.
Without it's aid, you cannot grow
into the divine state.
Without it, you cannot liberate yourself
from the trammels of the mind
and attain immortality.
Meditation is the only royal road
to the attainment of freedom.
It is a mysterious ladder which reaches
from earth to heaven, from error to truth,
from darkness to light, from pain to bliss,
from restlessness to abiding peace,
from ignorance to knowledge.
From mortality to immortality.
