Excerpts from Gurudev’s discourse on Patanjali Yogasutras

When you make the sources of misery and your fears more and more subtle, then they let you return to your Self. They let you bring the mind back to the Source. When these miseries are very dense, they bother you. They captivate your mind. When they become thinner and thinner, your mind becomes more free and you get back to your Self, your Source. When you are craving for something and it is not subtle, you are unable to relax or be still. However, once that craving is overcome, you are able to relax and meditate. Feverishness gets reduced and allows the mind to get back to the Source.
