Knowledge Gives Freedom

The practice of selfless service destroys sins and impurities and causes purity of
Antahkarana. Knowledge of Self dawns in a pure mind. Knowledge of Self is the only direct means
to freedom. Cooking is not possible without fire, so is emancipation without knowledge of the Self.
Knowledge certainly destroys ignorance as light destroys thickest darkness.
Be absorbed in your work. Give your full heart, mind and soul. Do not care for the results.
Do not think of success or failure. Do not think of the past. Have complete confidence. Practise
self-reliance. Be cheerful always. Keep a cool balanced mind. Work for work’s sake. Be bold and
courageous. You are bound to succeed in any undertaking. This is the secret of success.
From "Light, Power and Wisdom" by Swami Sivananda (1987-1963). More Informations on Swami Sivananda: on the Website of Divine Life Society, Photographs of Swami Sivananda, German Pages on Swami Sivananda
