"Before you sit for meditation, become calm and relaxed by surrendering your mind and all external wealth to God or Guru. You will lose nothing by doing this. God will look after your wealth, body, prana and mind. Surrender yourself completely to God, it can never harm you. Rather, your mind and body will feel rejuvenated. You will become a source of peace and bliss for others, thus making your life meaningful and the whole world in turn will benefit from this."
"Just as fishes live only in water and birds live in the air, you too should live only in the illuminating effulgence of True knowledge. Perform all actions while remaining firmly established in this truth. Make this effulgence your permanent abode. Then see, how immensely you can enjoy your daily work, life and even death!"
