Hear, Reflect, Meditate

Discipline the mind and the senses. Cultivate noble virtues. Develop the four means. Hear
the Srutis. Reflect and meditate on Atman. This will result in Self-realisation.
Have no blind faith. Reason out carefully and then accept anything. Annihilate lust, anger
and greed. Share what you have—mental, physical and moral—with others. Take delight in serving
others. All your egoism and arrogance will disappear.
In the lamp of the heart put the oil of Vairagya. Insert the wick of devotion. Now kindle the
light of knowledge by constant meditation and see. The darkness of ignorance will be dispelled.
You will be fully illumined.
