Ultimate Bliss


Ananda Acharya on Rest

You need rest, perfect rest. There comes a time in the life of man when the body and the brain and the mind want to feel the stillness of the Universal Spirit. Then, the best thing is to do nothing, to think about nothing. That takes away all misfortune, that cures all disease, that soothes all sorrow, that alone makes man whole again.

Ananda Acharya, Yoga of Conquest (Hoshiarpur, India: Vishveshvaranand Institute, 1971) pp. 33-34 [February 29, {1924}]
