(34) Spiritual Practice

A moderate life is the foundation

For achieving spiritual liberation


Sleep, food and activity in moderation

To keep body, mind in right position


Agitated mind cannot concentrate

On spiritual contemplation in earnest


Mind naturally uncontrollable

But good thing it is amenable


To reform gradually and patiently

By detaching from interests worldly


Desire to pursue path extra-ordinary

Is the sustained impetus necessary


Don’t respond to desire mechanically

Analyse need to fulfill desire critically


Then desires will reduce gradually

To establish consciousness godly


Patience is the key in this pursuit

Nothing can happen in a moment


Keep desire for liberation burning

Practice meditation, contemplating


Leave the result to the will Divine

As per His time table and plan


Mind focused on god all-pervading

Each moment of acting or resting


Desire for this sustains in fortunate

Stick to the practice in real earnest
