      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      STEADYING THE MIND: Sri Lilavati Garg asked the
      Master this question: "The mind is ever running
      towards material objects. How to make it steady and
      render it one-pointed?"

      The Master's answer was, "Through regular practice
      and dispassion. Japa, meditation and Kirtan are all
      helps to steady the mind and make it one-pointed.
      Practise again and again. If a cow continually strays
      into the field of another, what does its owner do? He
      gives it some cotton seeds and other foods in his own
      house. When the cow tastes these delicious things, it
      is no more attracted to ordinary grass. It gives up
      its wandering habit. Similarly, you should give the
      mind the delicious food of meditation on the Lord's
      form and repetition of His Name. If it tastes the
      bliss of meditation and Japa it will have no more
      attraction for sense enjoyments and will give up its
      nature of wandering."


      "God is perfection, freedom, all wisdom, all peace,
      all bliss, immortality and eternity. Therefore, He
      alone is the real ideal of man." - Swami Sivananda
