The spiritual aspirant is never helpless. The entire existence supports him in his arduous struggle, for he is searching for something which is true to all. One relay dislike a certain thing of the world but Truth can be hated by none.
If all the fourteen worlds were to face him in battle, the true spiritual aspirant wilt regard them as mere straw, for he is the immortal Spirit., the ruler of heaven arid earth and the universe at large.
The road to excellent bliss is covered with many piercing thorns. It passes through a lonely, dense forest haunted by terrible beasts. It is protected by impregnable fortresses and guarded by diabolic, multi-hooded cobras. The road is hard to tread; the bliss is difficult to attain.
A sincere aspirant is immune to all afflictions and terrors. No weapon against him shall prosper. No thought shall ever fare well.
