Practical Hints for Spiritual Aspirant's !

A spiritual aspirant should depend on god alone all circumstances. In the beginning he may take the help of men and institutions, but he should in due course learn to draw his inspiration more and more from divine.

When we feel miserable, the whole mind is upset. But even when we feel great pain, we should say,"yes, my mind and body are feeling these, but my self cannot be touched by them, my self cannot be imprisoned by them." Always, at all times, assert the glory, the freedom of the soul. When men of realization feel miserable, they just stand as the witness. They can at once give a higher turn to their mind and remain unaffected under all circumstances
