Sadhana :8 -3.


If you think, "I will take a bath when all the waves of the sea subside", this is not possible.

The waves will never subside and you will never take a bath.

Even so, if you think, "I will start spiritual Sadhana or meditation when all my cares, worries and anxieties cease, when all my sons are fixed up in life, when I have ample leisure after retirement", this is not possible.

You will not be able to sit even for half an hour when you become old.

You will have no strength to do any rigorous Tapas when you are in advanced senility.

You must start vigorous spiritual practices when you are young, whatever your conditions, circumstances and environments may be.
Then only you will reap a rich spiritual harvest when you become old.

You will enjoy the everlasting peace of the Eternal.
