CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-4.  { "Other  means  of  Self-realisation." }

Discussion-4. "Neither  by  mere  excitement ....."

"Neither  by  mere  excitement  nor  by  tapas  without  *linga*  can  one  hope  to  climb  the  ladder  of  Spirituality." : -

After  meeting  a  great  Master  or  soon  after  listening  to  great  discourse,  one  may  get  his  enthusiasm  fired  up  to  take  certain  hasty  decisions   on  renunciation  and  sacrifice.  

But  this  temporary  warmth  of  Spirituality  cannot  sustain  itself,  but  will  soon  cool  itself  down  to  an  ineffectual  luke-warm  idle-hope!!  

Next : Discussion-5. "Excessive  austerity  ...."

To be continued  ...

*  linga =   Proper,  Intelligent  * {  Second line last  term  of  the  Mantram }
