If a man yearns wholeheartedly for victory in
subduing the mind, let him practice Shivadhyâna daily.
Then he will see for himself that, step by step, his
mind will become one-pointed. Serenity, forbearance,
control and other such good qualities will arise in
him. His mind will be always full of joy. He will not
be dragged down by praise or blame, but will enjoy
happiness in his inmost soul, and the thought that the
well-being of others is his own will flood his heart.
