Swami Sivananda's words of wisdom - Concentration and Meditation (9)

All physical activities should be completely suspended, all attachments should be ruthlessly cut asunder completely for five or six years, if you want to practice Dhyana Yoga, if you want to realise God through concentration of mind. Newspaper-reading and correspondence with friends and relatives should be completely stopped; as they cause distraction of mind and strengthen the world-idea. Seclusion for a period of five or six years is indispensable.

如果你要实践禅那瑜珈(静坐修定),如果你想通过意识的集中来认识宇宙意识,那么你必须应当完全中止所有的身体活动,所有的执着应该被无情地完全切断为期五,六年。应该完全停止阅读报纸和与亲友的书信交往,因为它们会导致分心并加强世界概念。一个为期五,六年的隐居独处是不可避免的。
