      Yours in the service of Gurudev,



      MEDITATION IN THE CAVE: On the 23rd March, 1947, the
      Master went into the Kaivalya Guha (an underground
      chamber), for meditation. A stone mason working on
      the construction of the Yajnashala now came with his
      chisel and hammer and began breaking the stones just
      beside the wall of the Kaivalya Guha and right on its
      terrace. It was producing a thunderous sound all

      A disciple watching the scene and knowing that the
      Master was in the cave, began to wonder how he could
      meditate calmly with such a din just on the top floor
      of the room in which he was sitting.

      When the Master reappeared after half an hour, the
      assembled disciples went forward and offered their
      salutations. He was in his usual smiling mood and
      began to converse and cut jokes. One of the disciples
      drew the Master's attention to the stone-cutter and
      the noise that he produced, asking how it was
      possible to meditate in such a condition.

      "When did the stone-cutter begin his work?" asked the
      Master. "I did not see him when I went into the Guha.
      I did not hear him there."

      All were surprised to note the intensity of the
      Master's concentration.


      "The moon is the ornament of the night, the sun of
      the day; the ornament of a servant of God is
      devotion; the beauty of devotion is consciousness of
      non-duality. The ornament of knowledge is meditation;
      the decoration of meditation is renunciation, and
      renunciation is distinguished by Shanti, pure and
      unfathomable." -Swami Sivananda
