Roadmaps to joy!

Methods of discipline

The person who is slave to physical comforts should gradually eliminate all that is superfluous and train himself to be content with bare necessities.

Anyone who finds it difficult to overcome physical lethargy and rise early in the morning should drag himself out of bed by sheer force of will.

One who is inclined to over-eating should by degrees reduce the quantity of his food

A person who has the habit of talking unnecessarily should practice stillness by persistent control of all useless motions.

Such practices not only increase our power of concentration and meditation, but do much to improve our bodily health and make us happier in every way. Also as we learn to meditate our outer being falls into rhythm.

~ Swami Paramananda
