Again I say, you must work for it. You must climb up if you want to reach the peak, and when once you are on the pinnacle, all labour seems as mere child’s play. Until then, you must be able to laboriously climb up, step by step. Hold on to the Awareness and feel that you are already on the peak, but don’t stop climbing. Climb up and up, step by step. This is the secret of Sadhana.
Respected family members of this great holy Nation.

Dear Children of this Holy Nation -
MESSAGE OF SWAMI CHIDANANDA TO MANKIND-3-10.5.2
5. Srimad Bhagavad Gita-2.
Supposing there is a rich man and supposing he gives an open banquet. He extends an invitation to all. But, supposing the man has tied a fierce dog at the door. All can peep in, but none can enter; because the devilish dog is there.
Similar is the case with the bliss of Self-realisation. In the religious field, too, there is this thing which won’t allow you to eat the bread—to taste the bliss of the Self. Some call it Satan; others call it Mara or Maya. It is there in every religion.
All the bliss of the Upanishads is there, tempting you; but there is this hurdle which is not easy to jump over—Mama Maya Duratyaya—as the Lord says in the Gita.
That is why, in spite of all the Upanishads, all the scriptures, all the saints, all the Avataras and all religions, the dream continues to be real, and attraction to objects is still there.
It is very difficult for man to turn away from the Preyas and take to the path of the Sreyas. Herein comes the real problem for us, if we ought to experience the glory, grandeur and bliss of the Upanishadic state of Atma-Jnana, what is the way?
This obstacle, Maya, is there within every man.
The ultimate analysis would show that it is actually man’s mind itself. It is the overcoming of the mind in man that is the main problem of the seeker, overcoming which he would enrich himself with the experiences expounded in the Upanishads, enjoy the state of Para Brahman, that Bhuma,—an experience having gained which nothing more is to be gained. What is the method by which we can overcome this Maya or mind?
