Soundarya Lahari - Part 254


I was saying that the same human energy that is wasted by lust becomes the powerful nectar by yoga. Whereas the former is understood by every one easily, the latter fact is always questioned and debated. The difficulty in the belief comes from the observation that even great yogis that we hear about, ultimately, maybe after a few hundreds of years, die.

What is missed in the understanding here is the fact that the nectarflow that yoga talks about and the nectar-drink that the divines are said to have partaken are both different, totally different. That divine drink of ‘amRit’ has nothing to do with any spiritual uplift or the progress of the soul.
