      DIVULGING SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES: After the Excise
      Officers had gone, Sri Chawla raised a doubt.

      "Swamiji, it is said that one's experience of the
      vision of the Lord should not be divulged to the
      Guru. Is this true?"

      "How can it be?" replied the Master. "Even if you do
      not tell, the Guru will know. You need not tell it to
      other people but you can tell the Guru your spiritual
      experiences. Lord Krishna says in the Gita: 'Do not
      impart this teaching to those who are deluded, who
      cavil at Me, who do not want to listen, who have no
      devotion, who speak ill of saints and scriptures'.
      But He also goes on to say: 'He who will teach this
      supreme secret to My devotees will certainly come to
      Me'. You can reveal your spiritual experiences to
      sincere aspirants."

      -----------------------------------------------------

      "The greatest secret in mantra-repetition is to
      associate the mantra with the breath. If yours is a
      short mantra repeat it once while you breathe in and
      once while you breathe out; if it is a long one,
      repeat half while you breathe in and half while you
      breathe out, but without 'breaking' into two." -
      Swami Venkatesananda
