1st priority, 2nd priority, 3rd priority

'Dedicate at least one year towards attaining samadhi. All of you who are below thirty, this is a very good investment of time. Compared to your long life of seventy eighty years, giving one year to attain samadhi, to read intensely, to meditate, to walk around India, visit different places that are working on the inner science of enlightenment, is definitely worthy.

If you are a man, walk. If you are a woman, stay at one place. But for one year, make it your life's goal to achieve samadhi. For that one year, wake up with the thought that I am awake for samadhi. Be so intense that it is your first priority, second priority and third priority.

Only then it will work.

Because sometimes priorities interchange. (Ha ha)

So the only way to do it is to have your priorities set. Rest is simple. Samadhi is very easy.

And it has to work. You are all intelligent people. Its not easy living in this country. You have to remember two hundred laws everyday. If you are living here, means you have the capacity to work on attaining inner bliss.'

These powerful words are from Swami Nithyananda's discource in the US. He is talking on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

They will soon be on youtube, I guess. More of Swami's youtube videos are here.

Thanks, Banno, those flowers look like they are offered to the mountain, don't they?
