Swami Dhireshananda Thoughts

The path of the ants – An ant, by moving slowly, perceives a trace of sweets, and achieves satisfaction by eating it.
Similarly, an ordinary aspirant also, by practicing internal and external self-restrains (shama-dama) and the like, and by performing selfless work and devotional practices, slowly over many life times, becomes pure in heart.
Then gradually by following the practices in the path of knowledge, he becomes fully accomplished by attaining the knowledge of the Brahman. This is verily the royal path. In this way almost everyone attains the realization of the oneness of Brahman and Atman.
In this path one attains gradual liberation, that is, the emancipation comes gradually.
