Tranquil souls

“But wise, self-controlled, and tranquil souls, who are contented in spirit, and who practise austerity and meditation in solitude and silence, are freed from all impurity, and attain by the path of liberation to the immortal, the truly existing, the changeless Self…”

My word, we need more of those tranquil souls in our world, don’t we?!

“Affix to the Upanishad, the bow incomparable, the sharp arrow of of devotional worship; then, with mind absorbed and heart melted in love, draw the arrow and hit the mark – the imperishable Brahman. OM is the bow, the arrow is the individual being, and Brahman is the target. With a tranquil heart, take aim. Lose thyself in him, even as the arrow is lost in the target….”

“Within the lotus of the heart he dwells, where, like the spokes of a wheel in its hub, the nerves meet. Meditate on him as OM…”

I love the phase, ‘And heart melted in love’. These lovely words come from Mundaka Upanishad.
