Advice to an Aspirant about Meditation

You need not control the higher divine emotions. When you enter into deep meditation, you need not repeat the mantra. Allow the meditation to merge in samadhi. Swami Sivananda speaks a little more about meditation, and then other general topics, in this letter with advice to an aspirant.

A Sadhaka is a spiritual aspirant. In this lecture, Swami Sivananda instructs sadhakas to  reduce their wants to the barest minimum, to share what they have, to have sakshi bhav (the witness attitude), and more. The spiritual path is difficult, like the edge of a razor. Patience and perseverance is needed. This lecture is a great motivator for all sadhakas.
