Ques: When should an aspirant give up studying books?
Ans: An aspirant should give up studying books when his mind becomes wholly inward, when evil Vrittis like anger, desire, fear, greed and lust no longer trouble his mind.
Svadhyaya should never be given up all at once.
First, the period of Svadhyaya should be gradually lessened.
Then, the aspirant should take up just a few books and assiduously cultivate the teachings contained therein.
The emphasis should now shift from theory to practice.
When the aspirant has, by steady effort, brought the highest spiritual teachings into practical life, when his mind becomes completely attuned to God and remains in God always, he can give up the study altogether.
Books are of no more use to such a person, since he has already absorbed the best in them.
Such an advanced Sadhaka will have to engage himself mostly in Dhyana or meditation till he finds God.
