22 Feb Withdraw the Mind
“At present there is a divorce of ourselves from ourselves; the ego is a rebel who has exiled himself from his native kingdom, the Self. On rediscovery of the Self, the ego becomes the Self in such a happy blending of a homogeneous whole that, thereafter there is no distinction between the ego and the Self.” – Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda.
Swami Ishwarananda explains how to withdraw the mind for effective meditation in his talk to youth, deriving inspiration from Dhyana Yoga of Bhagavad-Gita. See the video:
