High on Waves

Swami Satyananda Saraswati

O Traveller
consider it well
Before you take to this path.

There is no rest
and no facilities on this path.
And, carrying the burden of life.

O Traveller
you have to go very far.

The path is full of ups and downs and heavy wind and storms.
It is not a world of dreams and it is difficult to proceed.

Yet this life is as soft as flowers,
and has the sweetness of honey.

The dreams of this life are colourful
but not easy to achieve.

Awaken the light of gyana
by means of japa and niyama
and on the basis of dharma and karma
continue treading towards your goal.
