Sutra 1.36


विशोका वा ज्योतिष्मती॥३६॥ 
vishokaa vaa jyotish-matI॥36॥

Hariharananda Aranya’s translation of this aphorism is that 'the mind can be stilled when one’s perception is free from sorrow and is radiant.' What is radiance? Radiance is described as an inner-glow. Look into your heart, not your mind, in order to silence the chattering mind. Placing one hand over the other on your heart, just bring your full focus to the light and heat at the center of your being. Stay focused as long as you can. Maybe a little longer tomorrow!
