"It is a divine message for you all. Pure as the snow of the Himalayas, bright as the sunlight, expansive as the sky, all-pervading as the ether, unfathomable as the ocean, cool as the waters of the Ganges is Immortal Atman, the substratum for this world, body, mind and Prana. Nothing is sweeter that this Atma. Purify your heart and meditate. Plunge deep into your heart. Dive deep into the innermost recesses. You will find it. Only if you search in deep water, you will find the pearl of Atma. If you keep to the shore, you will find only broken shells only. the best flower that can be offered to the Lord is your heart. Penetrate more deeply into the infinite domain of Kailasa, the kingdom of illimitable bliss, unparalleled joy and peace within you.
Just as a light is burning within the hurricane lantern, so the Divine light is burning within your heart. You can behold the Divine light through your inner third eye or the eye of intuition, by withdrawing the senses and sealing the mind. It takes a long time for charcoal to catch fire. But gunpowder can be ignited within a twinkling of an eye. Even so, it takes a long time for lighting the fire of knowledge for a man whose heart is impure. But an aspirant with great purity of heart gets knowledge of the Self within the twinkling of an eye, in the time taken to squeeze a flower by the fingers. Armed with patience, perseverance, tranquility and courage, slowly ascend the peak after peak, subdue the indriyas one by one. Control the thoughts one by one. Eradicate the vasanas one by one, and eventually reach the summit of self-realization or divine glory. O friend - wake up! Sleep no more! Meditate. It is Brahmamuhurta now. Open the gate of the temple of the Lord in your heart with the key of love. Hear the music of the soul. Sing the song of prem to your beloved. Play the melody of the infinite. Melt your mind in his contemplation. Unite with him. Immerse yourself in the ocean of love and bliss!"
